I’ve been trying to satisfy my Bruxie waffle sandwich cravings before the students come back to SDSU. My initial visit to the San Diego location can be found here.

I previously discussed my love for the light and airy waffles, but had not been able to find the a sandwich combination that was worth a repeat. But I finally found some favorites on this trip.

Green Eggs & Ham
Grilled Ham, Tillamook Cheddar, Jumbo Egg, Mayo & Arugula Pesto

While this is a breakfast waffle, it’s served all day. Perhaps it’s my pesto obsession, but this was just a great combination of flavors. My one wish was that they had kept the egg yolk runny.

This sweet tequila lime glaze is coated over crispy, oven baked chicken. It’s a delicious combination of flavors.

Do you ever have some random phrase pop into your mind and you have no idea where it came from? Last week while making various tequila recipes, I kept thinking about a tequila lime chicken. I’ve never had tequila lime chicken nor did I come across any related recipes lately, but those three words just kept repeating in my mind. Tequila lime chicken. Tequila lime chicken.

The flavors just seemed like they would be amazing. Since I’m still obsessed with crunchy baked chicken, I decided to make a tequila lime glaze. This pale golden colored sauce is perfect. It’s even better than I had dreamed. It’s just the right balance of sweetness and you can definitely taste the tequila and the lime juice. I couldn’t get enough of this. I’m definitely going to be making this one again and using this sauce in other dishes as well.

Rita’s Italian Ice has continued to expand throughout San Diego, with their newest opening in Rancho Penasquitos last week. The popular shaved ice chain from the East Coast has several more locations set to open in San Diego in the next few months. For their grand opening, they offered a free regular ice or regular sized gelatis for $1. It was such a hot day we decided to get some after work, hoping the lines had died down.

Speaking of weather, how crazy were the random thunderstorms in San Diego this weekend? I can’t even remember the last time it rained in July, much less thunder. But in a flash, they were gone, and it was sunny weather again. So bizarre.

Anyhow, we were wrong about the lines. They were still pretty long, but we were already there, so we decided to wait anyway.
