Thanksgiving....

平時不太下雨的聖地牙哥在我們正式搬家那天下了整天的大雨,然後在我們把最後一個箱子搬進新家之後雨就停了.... 我們還真是 "幸運"....。這幾天仍在搬一些零星的東西,新家仍然沒有網路和電視,所以每天都還是往舊家報到。我發現還是不要太常搬家比較好,因為家裡一亂我心情就不好然後就很常跟山姆大叔吵架,實在很傷感情耶!!接下來幾天是美國的感恩節假期,新家都還沒住熱我們就要出去玩了,行程真是排得相當的緊湊。我想回來之後我應該就累爆了吧.....。

thanksgiving2008

It doesn’t rain very often in San Diego, but it was just our luck that it rained all day on our moving day, and just as we moved the last box into our new place, the rain stopped. We’re still in the process of clearing out our old place and there’re still no internet and cable in our new place, so we’re still running back and forth between the two places. Thank God they are only just a few blocks away!!! I found that it is best not to move too often, because I would be very short tempered when things are not in order, and Sam would become the victim of this chaos….. Poor guy, I can’t remember how many times I had lashed out at him in the past few days!! It is Thanksgiving here in the US, and we will be out traveling. I don’t know what we were thinking, going away right after our move!!!! I’m sure I’ll be sore all over when I come back from our trip!!!!

For those who celebrate Thanksgiving, wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!!!!

混亂...

我發現我是個不太能生活在混亂之中的人。只要家裡處於混亂的狀態,我的脾氣就會變得很不好,某人就會很倒楣。也許是因為如此,雖然週末就要搬家了,我卻一點打包的動力也沒有,每天只是收個一箱兩箱意思意思。我真得很痛恨打包....。可以直接跳過這個階段嗎??

I found myself the type of person that does not function well in chaos. Whenever the house gets too messy, my temper runs short easily and Sam would become the victim of such chaos. I think this is the main reason I’m so not motivated to pack yet, despite we are moving this coming weekend…. I really hate the packing part. If only we can skip packing all together and go straight to moving!!!

但是搬家也不是沒有好處,這是強迫自己淘汰掉一些東西的最佳時機。週末在清衣櫃的時候,我終於痛下決心要淘汰掉一些已經穿不下的衣服,結果現實果真非常殘酷,我一共試了16條褲子,其中只有照片中右邊的三件是 "勉強" 可以扣得上的,其他通通穿不下.... 慘!!!所以各位如果看我老是穿同樣那兩條褲子請不要取笑我,因為我是真的只有那兩條褲子還拉的上去..... 完全就是怪加州的美食太多啦!!!搬到新家之後我們會有10天沒有電視及網路....。真不知道到時我要拿我自己怎麼辦?!

But moving is not all bad. This is the best time to get rid of stuff that we never use!!! I finally decided to clean out my closet this past weekend, and found that reality is sometimes really cruel….. I tried on 16 pairs of pants, and could only fit in the 3 on the far right corner of the photo – barely….. I totally blame it on all the delicious food they have here in CA!!!! We will have 10 days without cable and internet after our move. What am I going to do with myself?!

採柿子的季節~

時間真的過得很快,一轉眼就已經是11月了.....。去年的這時,和Phoebe一起去採柿子的記憶還彷彿才剛發生不久,就又到了採柿子的季節。今年就只有我和山姆大叔一起去,想說感冒才剛好還是不要穿太涼快,完全忘記了去年的教訓,一整個又被熱到不行。山谷裡的氣候一點也沒有晚秋的涼意,炙熱的太陽把我們烤得暈頭轉向。但是望見滿樹的柿子精神就來了,我看山姆大叔肚子裡一下子就裝了一整袋的分量吧!!
It is that time again!!! It’s time for persimmons~~ I fell in love with it last year when we went persimmons picking with Phoebe. This year, it’s only Sam and I, but we had a whole lot of fun – despite the boiling sun!!! I think Sam ate a whole bag worth of persimmons right there and then!!!!

結在樹上的柿子外皮佈滿了果粉,摘下後用衣服擦一擦就變得相當光亮~~ 連皮都不用削,就這樣咬下去,好吃極了!!

我們這一次整整採了兩大桶,應該比去年還多.....。這下又好一陣子不用買水果了~~

柿子採完,山姆大叔還意猶未盡。他說,"走吧!!去Julian吃蘋果派!!" 於是我們又一點也不順路的開了40幾分鐘到Julian去。用新鮮蘋果現烤的蘋果派真是好吃到沒話說~~~ 熱熱的派加上冰淇淋真是絕配啊!!(人的臉就是這樣圓起來的....)
After picking two buckets full of persimmons, Sam felt its not enough. He decided we should go to Julian for apple pie!!! So we went out of our way to Julian, and we ordered a fresh baked apply pie topped with vanilla ice cream!!! Can I just say YUMMY~~~~~~ (No wonder my face is getting rounder and rounder…)

Regents Pizzeria

在聖地牙哥住了快兩年,若不是有次聚會時佳佳訂了這家的Pizza當午餐,我想我也不會知道我們家附近會有這麼好吃的Pizza店吧!!!!又若不是剛好看到電視上在介紹紐約Pizza和芝加哥Pizza的節目,我想山姆大叔也不會想要去嚐試芝加哥Pizza吧!!!所以當上個周末山姆大叔跟我說他想吃Pizza時,我當然就帶他去這家Regents Pizzeria囉~~~ 結果第一次吃芝加哥Pizza的山姆大叔馬上就愛上了~~~ 我個人也覺得相當的道地呢!!!

芝加哥Pizza和紐約Pizza到底哪裡不同呢?基本上紐約Pizza是薄片的,而芝加哥Pizza就是Deep dish pizza,在將近兩吋深的烤盤中鋪上一層又一層的餡料。下面照片左邊的是薄片的紐約Pizza,右邊則是被我們吃到快光時才想到要拍照的芝加哥Pizza…… 但不論是紐約還是芝加哥style,Regents Pizzeria都做得非常好吃,不然也不會讓我們在一個星期之內去光顧了兩次~~~ (Sorry照片有點模糊,這是用手機照的......)

這家店給的分量很實在,我手上拿的是一片的大小,還得折一半才容易handle。 不過Pizza還是不要吃太多,臉會圓的很快......

小小的叮嚀,如果各位要外帶或外送的話最好提早半個到一個小時前打電話去,因為這間店生意真得很好,所有東西又是現做的會比較費時。我們真的有看到人在店禮等了半個小時才等到外帶的Pizza,在店裡吃就沒有這個問題,因為你可以點它已經做好的就不用等。又我們有點過它的Pasta,個人覺得沒甚麼特別的所以下次還是點Pizza就好。
