We started with brunch in the Mission at Hog & Rocks, a restaurant specializing in pork products (hog) and oysters (rocks) (with a dazzling bar selection to boot).
Next, we headed out to the "Batteries to Bluff's" walk which goes along the coast towards the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a remarkably clear day.
There were a lot of stairs! We took the Coastal Trail back and that was much more leisurely (and quicker, too).
Back at the ranch, J. started on dinner preparations. Despite the fact that this looks like it was prepared for an eight year old, this is what my brother requested: J's special chicken fingers, sweet potato "fries" (which were actually baked), and apple sauce (that I made on Friday). I am still obsessed with Sally's Baking Addiction, and she had a great recipe for the sweet potato fries that we used. (I also whipped up these amazing "healthy" pumpkin squares the other day. You must try them.)
Hope your week is off to a great start!
