Del and I have been cyber-friends for a few years. I enjoy reading her blog, and her photos of southern Cal, most of them only a few miles from where I spent my teen years. I drool when she posts pictures from her sizable collection of art quilts from all over the world. And I drool more when she posts about eating at southern Cal restaurants, especially my long-time favorite Rutabegorz!
So I was thrilled when she wrote me that she would be driving through Utah, and wondered if we could meet. I was in Reno when she was heading north to Montana, but home when she was driving back home to Placentia. So last Friday we met for lunch, and I had a wonderful time talking with her and enjoying a great lunch.
I thought and thought about where we could eat, and then my daughter reminded me about a place she took me to lunch once- La Jolla Groves. Perfect! We both had a salmon salad- a lovely moist filet on baby greens with a fruit salsa. Yum and yum! We split a piece of lemon cake- and I got a picture of both Del and the dessert.
Isn't that a fantastic Rayna Gillman scarf she's wearing?
