Bakersfield In The Fog

Friday: (01/07) More tiramisu for breakfast today. We hooked up and were on the road about 9:45. We headed off to Dawn's apartment in San Jose to drop off some things then caught highway 101 South to Gilroy. We needed to stop at the Gilroy Outlet Mall again. The SAS shoe store had some shows Dawn needed. It's hard to find good shoes for her that fit and work right. Her long time Rx shoe store closed. We ate lunch of some shrimp balls and egg rolls from the King Eggroll restaurant across the street before we headed on South on 101 to Paso Robles and then toward Bakersfield. We arrived in Bakersfield by 5pm. We settled at Aunt Helen's then went to dinner at the Wool Growers basque restaurant in East Bakersfield. Excellent family style restaurant. Cabbage soup, beans, salsa, pickled tongue. tomatoes, Basque fries, salad, and spaghetti. That's known as a "setup" or no entree meal and is more that enough. We did get one entree of tri-tip that gave us all a good sized piece of meat. We all left over stuffed after dinner.

Liquor used to make Pecan Punch at Wollgrowers
Dawn loves the pecan punch drinks from the bar. They're made with this liquor. So now they know and will be searching for some to make their own.

Saturday: (01/08) Cinnamon rolls for breakfast. It's gray and drizzling this morning but not really cold in the mid 40's. Costco's best for lunch. Chicken bake for me and hot dogs for Lou and Dawn. We stopped by Harbor Freight for a little shovel for the Jeep. Lowe's for some grab handles for Helen and looked around several other places as well. I got the handles installed as the project of the day. Lou made salmon and rice for dinner.

Sunday: (01/09) We had breakfast at our favorite market, Ranch Market, which has an excellent restaurant inside. Actually we were worried because it was recently sold and is now part of a bigger chain of Vallerta Supermarkets which now has about thirty locations around Southern California? Still a great place. We had our chorizo and eggs with rice and beans with fresh tortillas for breakfast. Lou and Dawn attacked the thrift stores again. I tinkered on a few projects for Helen. Dinner was chicken, potato salad and a green salad.

Monday: (01/10) Breakfast was French toast with peanut butter and some of Uncle Doug's strawberry preserves. Readied the RV to roll. Stopped by Delta Energy to fill the LPG tank. They have the cheapest LPG at $2.99/gal compared to others starting at $3.49. They're located on "Buck Owens" Blvd near Helen's. Also filled the gas tank. We were on our way by 10:30.
