This time last year, I got a Fortunate You necklace from Tea Stain clothing in Sacramento. The fortune said: “You will step on the soil of many countries.”
A combination of wanderlust, luck and professional opportunity made that fortune come true in 2010.
I sampled fresh fish and explored new flavors in Russia as a guest lecturer for St. Petersburg State University.
We celebrated my birthday with ceviche on the beach in Ensenada.
Finally, I left my Sacramento newsroom behind and became the Newark Patch editor. In this Alameda County city, I cover news, politics, crime and other issues that matter to Newark residents. Plus, I have a chance to profile all the amazing food spots in Newark.
You can find rest of my album, â€œIn My Tummy: 2010,â€ on Flickr.
What do you think? What should I try next?
Download In My Belly: Small Bites. My ‘Small Bites’ are quick, flavor-packed videos on my culinary adventures. I don’t think I will be doing fancy editing with these pieces. I simply want to shoot the foodie segment with my Droid X and then blast the video via Twitter and this podcast.
The other day, I did lunch with my hubby in Sacramento and we stopped by Gunther’s for dessert.
It’s my first trip to this 70-year-old icon.
My co-workers have been raving about this place for the last year. The ice cream tasted amazing! I don’t have a sweet tooth, but I was in heaven with the Root Beer Float ice cream. Yum!
