This morning started off like a Hobbit day: breakfast x2. After sleeping-in the kids woke hungry, we staved off that hunger by plowing through 4 Cronuts. What’s a Cronut you ask? A recent fad to hit San Francisco that came out of New York, it’s a Croissant-Doughnut hybrid, and man is it delicious. My sister got these over the weekend from Fillmore Bakeshop where they only produce these on the weekends. They sell them for $2.75 a pop, limit of 4.
I enjoyed their “Hemingway” plate which is eggs benedict with smoked salmon and a cucumber wasabe Hollandaise sauce.
After second breakfast we headed out for the SF Zoo and saw a lot of cool animals, Catalina pestered a few peacocks by trying to run them down to give them pets.
We also let the kids romp in the playground there.
Lunch was at the Underdog: The Organic Hotdog Joint. Only in San Fran! Their menu includes organic hot dogs and sausages along with gluten-free buns and pretzel buns. Sarai and I enjoyed their ‘Portuguese’ hot dog on pretzel buns.
After lunch we headed to Golden Gate Park to play. Upon buying tickets for the carousel ride I got suckered by the sign for ‘It’s-It”: a San Francisco tradition since 1928. The thing is essentially an ice cream sandwich with oatmeal cookies dipped in chocolate. Not bad.
And the carousel ride:
The kids romped in the park for an hour before heading back home for naps.
