the Odyssey part 1
We rolled into Tahoe City last night at about 12:45 a.m. after a long day getting the house cleaned, the car fixed, the family packed, and Steve's phone ringing and buzzing well into the evening. Food should be interesting on this trip. Unfortunately, we've missed the Thursday farmer's market in Tahoe City which in the past has been more than adequate to get us what we need. We've started the morning with a bowl of oatmeal and some dried fruit--vitamin D and Omega 3.6.9 for the kids. The goal on most of our trips to Tahoe is to not have french fries the entire time here, Steve and I are also going to try to skip Gluten based on a nutritionist's advice this past week. I'll let you know if we manage to avoid them. While I know there are some options for food in Tahoe--New Moon Grocery and Dragonfly in Truckee and Tahoe City, Fat Cat Cafe in Tahoe City, Spindleshanks in Kings Beach, Mikuni at Northsar (I'm dying to try Traci des Jardin's place, Manzanita) and Mamasake at Squaw Valley--it's generally difficult to just go out on the fly and eat well. Our trip will include stops in Mammoth Lakes, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Laguna Beach, and finally home to Corte Madera. It should be interesting!
