Sorry for the short absence, but this last weekend I was out of town visiting family in San Francisco Bay Area. My brother and his fiance, who both live here in Portland, were in San Francisco because she had a seminar in the city and decided to have a small engagement party with our family who live in Sacramento and the Bay Area. It was a small casual affair, but a great time for my immediate family to finally get together and celebrate their engagement. My parents were so generous enough to use their miles to fly me down! (Thanks Mom and Joe)

The next morning I headed over to the Ferry Building at the Embarcadero with my mom, step dad and sister. The Ferry Building is one of my favorite attractions in San Francisco. It's like a culinary mecca, especially since it was Farmer's Market day! Yippee! Since it was nine am our first stop was to get some coffee at Blue Bottle. We each got individual drip coffee while my sister got a hot chocolate. Drip coffee isn't exactly photogenic so I took a snap of my sister's hot chocolate made with Michael Recchiuti chocolate, mmmm.

We also spotted an awesome rotisserie truck with a mile long line. They had chicken and pork on their spits and it smelled so good. We had already ate and didn't much feel like standing in line, but I will have to check it out next time. We headed back inside so I could get a few more things I like to pick up while in town like, Boccalone salami.
|Every time I'm at the Ferry Building I always want to ride off on this.|
Our next stop was at the SF MOMA, which I will continue in the next post, Part Dos of my trip. Until then, I hope you enjoy the eye candy!
