Pismo Beach Featured in Westways Magazine!

My new Westways arrived in the mailbox yesterday and had a page featuring a Day Trip to Pismo Beach. (pg. 30 if you get the magazine) If you don't get the magazine, I'll try to put up some of the most interesting things from the article. First the map from the downtown area with featured places to visit highlighted.
The first catagory covered was places to EAT. They suggested (1) Old West Cinnamon Rolls. 1861 Dolliver Street. Follow the smell of just baked cinnamon rolls and inside you will hear the rolls are "the best in the world."
(2) Steamers of Pismo Beach. 1601 Price Street. Known for its panoramic ocean view and award-winning clam chowder and some of the tastiest fish and chips in town.
And (3)
Rosa's Italian Restaurant. 491 Price Street. Try the thin-crust pizza with Italian sausage, salami, and green pepper. Be sure to save room for the tiramisu.
Next, there were the places to PLAY. Number (4) is Hotlix. 179 Pomeroy Avenue. Kown for its chocolate-covered ants and worm suckers.
(5) The Sky's the Limit Toy & Kite Shop 761 Dolliver St. Go buy a kite with pictures of ladybugs, flowers, or circus animals.


(6) Beach Cycle Rentals 150 Hinds Ave. They can outfit your for a day at the beach with bikes, surfboards, boogie boards, wetsuits, umbrellas, or beach chairs.
(7) Cottage Inn By The Sea 2351 Price Street. Relax at the thatch-roofed Inn with a cliff top pool and spa.

(8) The Cliffs Resort 2757 Shell Beach Road. Enjoy the bluff sop setting, where rooms furnished in soothing colors frame ocean or mountain views.

These are just a few things to see during your visit. There are many other wonderful motels, restaurants to fit all budgets, nearby shopping at our local Prime Outlets in Pismo Beach, Regal 10-Plex Movie Theater and Miles of Beach to walk and drive on. (Yes! I said drive on!) Local Farmer's Markets are held each week in several locations within driving distance. So come for a day, a weekend or even a week and take in the mild weather and mellow people.

For hours, availability of businesses, attractions, and events, visit the Pismo Beach Conference and Visitors Bureau, 581 Dolliver Ave, corner of Hinds and Dolliver (Hwy 1) call (805) 773-7034 or visit Classic California website.

Hey Retirement! Don't take OUR Date Night Away!!

"Wait! Did we budget for Date Night??"

Wednesday night is Date Night at our house. It's been that way for a LONG time! And we didn't want retirement to do away with our weekly fun. So today, I'm going to cover some good ways to keep that fun coming and be able to pay for it with slightly reduced funds.
Put some money in the budget. Analyze what you can afford and how many times you will be going out during the month. If you get paid twice a month, budget for two date nights. If you get paid weekly, you only need to budget it in for the week. For us, we are getting paid once a month so we will budget for 4 to 5 nights out. We set aside about $20 to $25 per week for date nightRemember, it's about spending time together not how fancy the dining is. You can make a picnic one week and then spend double the following week at a nice place. You can make dinner at home and go to see a play or movie. In our case we could go to the beach with some hot dogs, potato chips a…

Living on Less.....WEIGHT, Part 1

It's not just about the money. Living on Less can also mean having less "stuff" cluttering up our homes, less stress and drama, and dragging around a whole lot less weight. 
The topic of the day... What are YOU "Weighting" for?
I think I've always had a weight problem. I was active enough as a teen and young adult to keep the pounds in range. But when I started having kids, I put on weight with each one. In 2001, and 230 lbs., I'd finally had enough and opted for Gastric Bypass Surgery so I would never have to think about being fat ever again and yes, I'm using the word FAT. I like to eat though, and only ended up losing a total of 35 lbs. with gastric bypass. Don't get me wrong, if you do it right, you MIGHT not have the same results I had, but a little dixie cup size meal was just not enough food for me. I would cry and be angry at every gathering of people and food. Let's just say eating was a big part of my life, so much so that it had int…

Sourdough Bread

A few of you have been asking about the recipe for Sourdough Bread that I use and I figured this would be the easiest way to give it out. This recipe makes 2 loaves.

MIX TOGETHER:
260 g. of actively fed sourdough starter (about 1 cup)
460 g. water (about 2 cups)
90   g. Canned milk or milk that has been scalded and cooled. Can use water or plant milk instead (About 6 Tbsp)

20 g. Kosher Salt (1/8 cup)
900 g. flour (all purpose or white bread flour, don't use whole grain, to heavy to rise well) 7 1/2 Cups

Mix the starter, water, milk (or the substitute) together thoroughly. Then add in the salt and flour.
Put the dough in a covered container and let it ferment at room temperature.
After 2 hours fold the dough. How To Fold The Dough
After an additional 2 hours, fold the dough again.
When the dough is is finished fermenting (after a total of 5-6 hours - when dough is bubbly, soft and will pull a windowpane) divide dough into two pieces around 855 g. each.
Do a first shaping of the dough and let r…
