Dad and I just got back from Trader Joes where we picked up a major haul. We bought:
aquila d oro toscano rosso wine
dark chcolate bar x 2
organic baby romaine lettuce
tjs tomato basil pasta sauce
puttanesca pasta sauce
organic red cherry tomatoes
hot italian pork sausage
artisan wine salami
All of this for under $40 bones! So tonight it is spaghetti with sausage and the puttanesca sauce and a salad with baby romaine and tomatoes. And red wine.
Before going to Trader Joes we stopped at Costco for the hot dog special, and we requested sourkraut, which my Dad did not know was available. The kitchen wench provides!
Also, we drove past a new restaurant called Tommy Vs and it turns out they are related to the Tomasos people who have Tomasos in Phoenix and Tommy Vs Osteria at the same location on 32nd St. and Camelback. They now have a Tommy Vs in Del Mar and the location that we were near today in Carlsbad is at 2659 Gateway Rd.
Got a copy of their bar menu. They have lobster bisque, seared salmon salad, pancetta wrapped grilled king prawns (mmm sounds tasty), steamed mussels, blackened lamb chops (mmm), crab cakes, shrimp cocktail and...pizza!
If I have a good work week and make a few bucks, I think we should give Tommy Vs a try. If we go I will tell you all about it and post a picture.
