Road Trip Part 2

Our final destination in our road trip was San Diego
to visit with my parents.

They have been "competing" in the "Great Tomato Race".
Mom is growing her cherry tomatoes in a traditional pot,
while dad is using a Topsy Turvy planter that I got him for Father's day.
They both have tomotoes, but dad's is having
some sort of problem with his. It'll be interesting to see how this goes as time goes on!

One of my absolute favorite places to eat in the San Diego area
is the Chicken Pie Shop located in North Park.

They serve up the most delicious chicken pot pie dinner
with mashed potatoes, gravy, cole slaw, veggie,
dinner roll and pie.
All for the ridiculously low price of about $5.50.

However, when the restaurant opened the price for the
dinner was $.45

Here I am enjoying this amazing dinner!

Mom and Dad have 2 kitties. This is Patch

And this is Pumpkin!

I also delivered one of the Camp Reach for the Sky quilts

to Rosies Calico Cupboard while in San Diego.
And when you are at Rosie's you have to
stop in at
The Quilted Rose
right next door.

On Saturday we spent some time down
near Mission Beach having breakfast there
and then driving over to LaJolla Coves.

It was really hard to come back to 100+ temperatures here in Phoenix!


  1. Now I see why you took the pictures of the Chicken Pot Pie Shop. Good story about your long road trip.

  2. Sounds like you have had a great time. If I ever get to the U.S.A. I will go and have some chicken pie

  3. HI Bec!
    There is a place in Sydney, I think it is in Wollomoloo (not sure if that is spelled right?) that has FANTASTIC chicken pies. It is Harry's Cafe de Wheels. You get your chicken pie, topped with mashed potatoes, gravy and smashed peas! Love those pies!
