The good food didn't end at wedding tastings on Friday. Wedding appointments and quality time with mom and Justin, and good food, continued through the weekend!Huckleberry. I've been wanting to try this place for a long time now, and finally got around to it!
Not quite as good as the quinoa cakes I made with hummus the other night. But still satisfying.
mickey waffle each time he took a bite.
Tam O'Shanter. Yes, we were just there for St. Paddy's day. But mom hadn't been, and I just can't get enough Toad in the Hole. I won't bore you with things I've already eaten there (yes, I totally got the Toad in the Hole again). A new discovery I made there this weekend was the beer flights! So I got one. On a paddle. Justin joked that the waiter might smack me with it after I finished my beers because I kept asking to taste beers that were on the menu, yet not available at the bar (apparently the St. Paddy's day madness really wiped out their inventory and they have yet to recover from it). When all was said and done, I think I tried the Iron Fist, Dogfish, Hefe, and Harp. Yep, lots of blondes. I like the blondes.

Toscanova. We had a coupon and mom wanted to shop at the Century City mall, so it was a logical choice. There are so many great italian restaurants in LA that this place has some challenging competition in my mind, but it's always pretty good. Mom and I enjoyed kir imperials to start (champagne with chambord and a twist of lemon). Very refreshing.
I'm spoiled after all these meals. At the end of it all, we took mom to the airport and made a Costco run so that I can make us some cheap (but still delicious!) food at home this week.
