Lake Tahoe Weekend
We drove up last Friday to spent a weekend up in Lake Tahoe last week. Not just because we wanted to enjoy the amazing weather we're finally having all the late May rain around here, but like a lot of our weekend trips, Chris have a bowling tournament. I call it his charity work since he bowls with juniors and they get to win scholarship money and well, Chris might get a paper certificate. =) At least Lake Tahoe is a nice place to spent a weekend. Some other places (like Auburn), let's just say there ain't a whole lot to do. He ended up bowling the first and last squad on Saturday so we have almost the whole day to hang out. Since this is a food blog and all, we got breakfast at Safeway (coffee and scones). Lunch and a very late dinner at 10 are both buffets. We're not even big buffet people since we prefer quality vs quantity. We just always ended up at them because it's fast and we don't have to decide on anything too specific. The view at Harrah's during lunch is probably the best view from a buffet.
Anyways, by the time we got back on Sunday afternoon, we are pretty sick of eating out. I managed to find enough ingredients to make cold noodles. I posted my version of cold noodles before, so I won't do it again. I added some small dried shrimps and pickled vegetables with the sauce like the cold noodles served at a place we like in the East Bay.
Oh, in case you're wondering, Chris shot a 700 series (with a 279 game) his last squad on Sunday. Hopefully that'll help the junior he was bowling with to get some scholarship money.
