Hi there and welcome to BdaKiNE.com 😁
Eeeesh! This heat wave is brutal for us fair weather San Diegans. Since we don’t have air conditioning (major bone of contention with my hubby), there’s no way I’m cooking when it’s 88 degrees INSIDE my house. Thankfully, we live near the Prado Restaurant in Balboa Park. I called to make sure that their air conditioner is working and it is, so off we go!
I feel super lucky to live within walking distance to Balboa Park; what a beautiful, amazing spot. When I first met my husband, I was living in LA and I could not believe that a spot like this existed – over a thousand acres of grass, trees, flowers, museums, restaurants, sports facilities – all this in one place with such interesting, historical architecture is truly special.
This heat makes me totally grouchy but being in Balboa Park helps to ground me and remind me of my many blessings. Even so, to take the edge off, I ordered a top shelf margarita that comes with a souvenir glass; I must confess that I already have several of these at home (who isn’t a sucker for freebies?!) Talk about nectar from the gods, this drink is just what the doctor ordered and for the first time today, I’m not thinking about the heat and humidity.
BON APPETIT & thank you for visiting BdaKiNE.com 🌞 Have a grateful day 🍭 Hugs, Lori 😘
