Doomie’s Home Cookin’, Los Angeles, California

Ahh, Doomie’s. One of our favorite traditions, when we come to LA, is to meet up with our friends Matt and Meggan at Doomie’s for a gorge fest. What We Ordered We started off with an order of the jalapeño poppers to split amongst the table. These and the buffalo wings are generally our go-to starters. We didn’t give the jalapeño poppers enough...

True Food Kitchen, Los Angeles, California

For Aaron’s birthday, Hayden’s parents took us out to True Food Kitchen in El Segundo, CA. It’s a new restaurant at this location, but the chain of restaurants opened in 2008 in Arizona and have locations in quite a few states with plans to continue expanding. Great news for us, so we can eat here on our travels! We started off with the kale...

Rice, Manhattan Beach, California

After leaving Portland and moving to Texas, we were seriously lacking in the sushi department. We had been craving sushi for what seemed like years, so when we arrived in LA, we knew this had to be our first stop. The restaurant is very quaint, so it could get busy during dinner. For lunch, however, there were plenty of empty tables. We tried the tasting menu, which...

Joshua Tree National Park, California

Joshua Tree National Park was so awesome! The Joshua trees, or Yucca trees, look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book. In addition to the cool trees, the rocks take on a life of their own. The landscape here is absolutely amazing. Hayden’s parents came for the weekend with their Great Dane, Gracie, so we took the dogs into the park. We drove up to the Keys...
