San Diego



San Diego, California

Sitting in the southwest corner of the state, San Diego is where California began, originally claimed in the name of Spain by Portuguese explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo. With an average annual temperature of just over 70 degrees, everyday is a good day for a trip to the beach or a farmer’s market. The beaches are everywhere and you are likely to find a market somewhere just about any day of the week—and year-round, no less. The city’s restaurants offer everything from casual takeout to four-star dining, with the fish taco as the local favorite. You haven’t truly experienced eating in San Diego if you haven’t enjoyed one of their deep fried, battered fish wrapped in a corn tortilla with cabbage and sauce.

About me:
I moved with my girlfriend to San Diego last July. Until February I sat around doing nothing while she worked, and I was responsible for dinner. Even though I work now, I am still responsible for dinner because I arrive home an hour before she does. For the first few months we ate out a good bit, or I would cook. The only thing I had ever cooked in my life was Grilled Cheese, so you can say my experience was limited. I just cooked what my mom used to, or what my girlfriend liked. That was until December, I searched google looking for a random meal to make one night. Ever since then I have been experimenting and cooking many different things.
