It's Out. Guys, I think I'm... I think I always been...
A Morning Person!
I won a free Peet's drink coupon after displaying my SD chicken karaage prowess successfully answering all of Kirk's Guess the Chicken Karaage Post back in March. What can I say, I've got down my local Japanese-Nugget-Sized-Fried-Chicken offerings from the piece to plating.
Peet's twice brewed Ice Coffee - large, extra ice, no room. Dark and rich, a little chocolately aftertaste without the acidity. Good stuff.

Dropped in Bread & Cie next door for a little Kiki action. I love the smell of fresh baked bread in the morning.
The bread labeled 'Caramelized Onion' piqued my interest. I think it was ~$4.50. Came out of the oven not too long ago and was warm and crackled to the lightest squeeze.
Ah man this was one fantastic bread. Seemed partially sour dough based with an excellent crusty outer and very moist chewy inner. I noticed what seemed like some mustard seeds in there as well. The bread also kept well for the rest of the day. Tasted just as good later.
Another day I paid for my coffee at Peet's, then picked up a baguette. I felt so gay in that original merrily sense of the word.
Decided to cross the street and check out the hours of the newly opened Yu Me Ya, Hillcrest location. Got the news a while back from the great SD Urban blog.
As with the original Encinitas location (an older quick post on them here) they're not open for lunch. Too bad. Despite I managed to remain feeling really gay in that merrily sense of the word for the remainder of the day.
Fabulous week. But still glad the weekend is finally here.
