A few weeks ago I was on the search for something new. I had been avoiding Panera Bread for a few weeks because I was just tired of my usual salad (BBQ Chopped Chicken + bacon + egg), I mean I have been having it for the last two years. Sometimes I’ll switch it up and try whatever new sandwich they have or get my Napa Chicken sandwich but usually, I’m in the mood for salad.

I’m a little bit of a sucker for Thai food (I mean, I’m a TOTAL sucker for it) and when I saw posters for their not-so-new Thai Chicken salad I decided to give it a go.

I am so glad I did. I’m obsessed!!!

The peanut sauce on top is sweet but tangy and the soy sauce-ish salad dressing pairs heavenly with it. Also the won ton strips? My favorite part! There’s also edemame in there. Oh my gosh guys, just looking at this picture makes me wish PB was open 24hrs so I could get one right now!

And of course it’s even better paired with my favorite soup, Wild Rice & Chicken (:

So if you’re into Thai food and you’re looking for an amazing salad. Next time you’re at Panera Bread, I suggest giving this a try!

M & I ventured to a new city awhile ago: Danville, CA. I was on the search for a store and was pleasantly surprised that it was part of this super cute plaza that had these ponds and lakes where you could feed the ducks. It also had a string of cute stores, restaurants and sweet shops!

Nothing was really familiar to us in this area (which could be both exciting and stressful), we decided on pizza (can’t go wrong with pizza) and found ourselves at Blackhawk Pizzeria.

I was a little disappointed that they didn’t have pasta, so I got the Meatball Calzone. M got the slice of pizza (don’t remember exactly all the meats he put on it). The Calzone was really good (and I got a cup of maranara sauce to go with it), the cheese was thick and gooey and there was plenty of meatballs! M’s pizza was also really good, the crust was nice and fluffy. And even though it might not look like a lot, it was actually all really filling!

I do plan on stopping by this cute little plaza again and I will definitely be coming back here, hopefully they have my pasta next time :)!

Have you been following about the SOPA act? I haven’t really had time to post about it here, but WordPress News sums it up pretty well. I’ve posted about 6 links/posts about SOPA on my personal Facebook page and no one really responded (but I post a picture of a freakin cake and I get 3 likes and 5 comments? Really? Thanks 300+ friends…), some still don’t know what SOPA is! How can you be on the internet everyday and not know what SOPA is?!

Here at eating around the bay, we’re participating in the 24hr SOPA blackout. This is something I feel strongly about. Are you going to join us?
