iPhone-o-Gram! Hello, San Francisco!

Yes this is a foodie post – I have been flying in a tube with wings all day long, so this is the best I can do!

We arrived in San Francisco almost 2 hours late – and I was severely starving after that long flight.

If you've never been to San Francisco airport, as airports go – this one is pretty much top-notch with the eateries available.

Today's choice was the San Francisco soup Company at the San Francisco marketplace in terminal three.

I chose the chicken tikka masala soup, and boy was it yummy!

Just what this girl needed to give her a bit of energy to make it the rest the way to Eugene this afternoon.

Chicken tikka masala soup? I think I need to find a recipe!

There have been plenty of hexies sewn on this trip thus far – and I have enjoyed watching some episodes of Inspector Lewis on my Kindle fire.

I also napped a fair bit – good thing, because I needed it!

I will be boarding in about 45 minutes for Eugene – and my Oregon adventure will be underway!


  1. Yum! When you find the recipe, let me know!!!

  2. The soup looks yummy...


    Enjoy your flight - you are almost there.

  3. There are many great places to eat in that terminal. I can give you recommendations for the return layover!

  4. While you're out near the left ocean, wave hi to my daughter who lives in San Jose, CA ... not too far from San Francisco, and then I have a brother who lives in Bend, OR ... not too sure if you'll be close at all, but he's close for the Quilt Show in Sisters!

    Have a GREAT trip and try to rest! I see you have a busy calendar while you're there!

  6. That soup does look yummy. Thanks for the recommendation. I do travel thru SFO periodically, typically late in the evening when we are starving. I'll definitely give this restaurant a try. Thanks.

    And, I hope you have a great trip to Oregon.


  7. The soup looks wonderful. I love the Inspector Lewis mysteries. We watch so many different series from BBC TV on netflix. If you are into really old timey stuff the series called Larkrise to Candleford is pretty good. We will be sad when we watch the last season. Have a great time in OR. My twin girls were born in Salem 43 yrs ago on October 17...thanks for reminding me how much I love that state.

  8. You are so brave trying all those foods you have no idea if you will like them or not or if you feel okay to get on a plane again......what if it gave you an upset stomach? See how old people think? You just jumped right in and enjoyed it! You are so adventurous!

    Happy Sewing and safe troubles

  9. Mmmmmm!! Looks Soooooo YUM!!
