I don't want you all to think that every day has been a total pity party...we did have the very-best-vacation-in-the-world (especially if you are recuperating from surgery) at the ultra-luxe La Costa Resort. This best-time-ever treat was spent with my kids, my Ms. M and her brood, Izze & Elliot, Harm, Lynn, Julie and Chachi (with her littlest 2 girls.)
Each of the six days there featured two spa treatments per adult (I had an entire hour just having my scalp massaged one afternoon) and some of the most delicious food ever presented to this wanna-be food critic.

Grey Goose Apple Martini

Grey Goose shot

Late Latte

Shrimp? No, SHRIMP!
The Ahi with Sugar Cane Skewers was divine...
(Julie relished the Lamb!)

I had Salmon almost every night (this version was accented with a cubed apple chutney garnish.
Ben was Mr. Meaty Meat, enjoying this 16oz T-Bone (his favorite was the night of the Pork loin.)

Jumbo pancakes at the Potato Shack...

Apple tart with Caramel and a pure, crystalized sugar spoon. Crazy good stuff. No regrets there.
M. sure knows how to throw a party!
