Happy Blogiversary!

Eating L.A. is one year old this month...a year ago I posted a few things before going to Big Sur for our annual camping weekend. We just returned from a week of eating, hiking and napping at Big Sur and I realized I've been doing this an entire year already! It's been a great year for blogging -- Eating L.A. has talked about cupcakes on Good Food, been invited to taste hot dogs, gelato, Thai food and more, made quite a few new friends and received dozens of really nice emails. Lots of other people are now blogging about eating in L.A. -- the more opinions, the better.

We cooked some pretty good meals at the campsite -- carne asada, dry-aged natural burgers, chili, mojo chicken and more -- and the only time we ate out was at the Big Sur Bakery. In addition to their great breads and baked goods, they serve a full lunch and dinner menu. It's not cheap, but nothing is in Big Sur. At lunch, we had split pea soup, garden salad with lemon dressing and a tomato and cheese sandwich on asiago sourdough and a creamy quiche. That's right, I actually ate raw tomatoes in Big Sur. But I'm going to have to stick to a policy of homegrown tomatoes only, I'm afraid.
