What a beautiful day here in Sacramento today. Hubbs and I had to run some errands and by the time it was lunch time we in East Sacramento and were really hungry. Hubbs works for the City of Sacramento so he knows all the awesome locally owned mom & pop shops to eat. We settled on Roxie Deli & Grocery. Let me tell you, this place is awesome. I had the Roxie Veggie Sandwich. It was 4 types of cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, marinated mushrooms, artichoke hearts, Avocado and humus on a whole wheat roll. OMG it was amazing and the guys behind the counter were extremely friendly, joking and laughing with the customers while they worked. Roxie Deli & Grocery is another reason that I miss working downtown in Sacramento.

Roxie Deli & Grocery is located at 3340 34 Street & C in East Sacramento. It's just a few blocks from McKinley Park. After we ate lunch we headed over to the park to enjoy the rose garden.

The Hydrangeas were so pretty.

The roses were so pretty.

The houses in the neighborhood around the park were so cute and quaint. I'd love to live in a neighborhood like this but there is no way that Hubbs would ever go for it. All the houses are too close together. But at least we live close enough that we can run up to these kinds of neighborhoods and enjoy the beauty of it.
