Christy – ahhh, scripts

dinner - restaurant

I have been working on a couple scripts the beginning of this week for a reading I did last night and a booking I have tomorrow morning. There are times when we actors (well at least this actor) is busy doing all kinds of other stuff besides acting and forget how much fun it is to dissect a really good role and figure out how to convey it.

So I have been in my own kind of heaven the last couple of days working on these scripts. Glued to my computer…

And with very little thought to food. Have you ever noticed that when you are involved in something that really interests you, food fades into the background? I work with this a lot with my clients, bringing more things into day to day life that are interesting and that they are passionate about. So that food can take its proper place – something that you enjoy, something that nourishes you, maybe even one of the things that you are passionate about, but in the end, it is just food.

I don’t have any really interesting dishes to report but Jeff and I did do an appetizer dinner at Buddha’s Belly on Beverly the other night. Appetizers are Jeff’s favorite thing and sometimes we will go to a restaurant and just share some appetizers in place of a dinner.

Buddha’s Belly has really great combinations of healthy fusion food. We got four appetizers:

Ahi Tuna and Avocado Role (really good and comes with a small Arugula salad)

The Chicken Lettuce cups (not my favorite. I ended up just eating some of the lettuce)

The Chicken Pot Stickers (who doesn’t like pot stickers??)

And the Rock Shrimp Tempura (this was INCREDIBLY RICH. Definitely a sharing dish)

We were both really full afterwards. But I was craving some fried rice and they have a Garlic Fried Rice that sounded amazing so we got an order to go and saved it for the next day.

We heated it up and added in some broccoli and a little bit of chicken and then divided it into four portions (can you believe it made four portions?!).

Their fried rice is made with a Jasmine rice that is really yummy.

And it was perfect because Jeff and I had lunch and dinner and I could concentrate on my scripts!

    Agreed, you really can’t go wrong with Pot Stickers! But bummer about the lettuce wraps. Good luck with the scripts!

    Hmmm…when I read Buddha’s Belly I immediately thought vegetarian food…guess not. But cool name for a restaurant though :-)
    Good luck with the scripts.

    Potstickers always blow me away. When they’re bad, they’re good

    I do love that feeling of not wanting to stop what you’re doing for anything, including food!

    I love just getting appetizers!! They are usually much more appetizing to me than full meals.
