My Review of Rock & Brews in Buena Park, CA

My husband and I went to lunch at the newly opened Rock & Brew in Buena Park, California. We had no expectations for this place. We heard the Gene Simmons was part owner in the place we and wanted to try it out. I ordered the Strawberry Fields salad. FYI - All the food on the menu is named after rock songs. My hubby's sandwich was called "Freebird."

So my salad had candied walnuts, strawberries, goat cheese, onions, avocado, chicken and a poppy seed vinaigrette.  I must say that I was surprised by the size of the salad. It was a pretty good portion. And they didn't cheap out on the chicken. The salad was DELICIOUS! And my husband's sandwich was delicious too. I give this place an A. We will definitely be coming back again.

Avocado and Tomato Toasts

This is a shot of everything we ate on Sunday: Bang Bang Shrimp, Avocado and Tomato Toasts and Strawberry Salsa

Stephanie also made us some deviled eggs!

Avocado and Tomato Toasts: We used gluten-free bread, avocado, mayo, garlic powder, pink sea salt, and heirloom tomatoes.

Bang Bang Shrimp

 More Sunday Funday girl day recipes! We recipe tested this Bang Bang shrimp and it was absolutely delicious! We added a little too much sauce because we didn't end up using the whole bag of shrimp, but otherwise it came out amazing.

Strawberry Salsa

On Sunday my friend Stephanie and I had a girls day! We did a lot of recipe testing. This one is our strawberry salsa. We used strawberries, organic strawberry preserve, organic cane sugar, organic cane brown sugar, kiwi, Fuji apples and raspberries. It turned out amazing. Also made our own tortilla chips using cane sugar and cinnamon.

Roasted Beet, Arugula, Avocado and Goat Cheese Sandwich

Roasted Beet, Arugula, Avocado and Goat Cheese Sandwich: When I'm not cooking for my husband, I like to create recipes that he would normally never eat, like this vegetarian sandwich. I couldn't even pay him to eat beets, so I take advantage of this opportunity. For this I used gluten-free bread, spread ghee butter over the top of the bread along with garlic and some shredded cheese. Then I filled it with herbed goat cheese, arugula, avocado and beets. Broiled both sides of the sandwich until golden brown! So yummy!
