I’ve Been Spoiled

When I woke up yesterday, I wanted to know where the breakfast buffet was. No high-end street food?  No giant room filled with organic and artisanal goodies?!?!

Luckily, I brought home a little bit of the latter, courtesy of Frog Hollow Farm:


I split one of their perfect organic pears with Abe, and sprinkled the delicious granola on top of some nonfat organic cottage cheese.


Lunch was the rest of my Chicken Fajita salad from Plancha


A little snack plate on the side – Dried Peaches (more Frog Hollow loveliness), a few Fritos and…


…a little bit of Annie the Baker’s Peanut Butter Dough Ball that I pocketed home with me from the Taste Pavilion! You CAN’T let that stuff go to waste!


Spent most of the day working on blog stuff – updated my bio/FAQ and a bunch of the menu pages (on top of the banner) with new links to old posts about Restaurants, Guest Posts, Acting, etc. Check it out, if you subscribe on a reader and haven’t visited the home page for a while!

Tons of stuff in the pantry/freezer to use up. Abe “cooked” dinner last night.


Got all fancy sprinkling some dried thyme on top. Isn’t he the cutest?! (Have you seen his “Man’s Guide to Love” video yet? My heart melts a little each time I watch it.)


Another Kim and Scott’s pretzel on the side


This one was stuffed with Spinach and Feta


Dipped in the soup, this reminded me of food at the roller skating rink!


Except these were on my feet:


We polished off the last of the Apricot Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies – I ding donged them for about 30 seconds and they got nice n gooey


About an hour after dinner I was hungry and realized I didn’t have any protein. This happened the last time I ate those pretzels, so I dug into the Beef Jerky again.


Did the trick – I was satiated the rest of the night. In fact, the entire meal was pretty darn delicious. Though I still would’ve preferred a gourmet sit-down meal with my fellow bloggers πŸ˜‰

Thank you for your positive feedback (and for all the shout outs) with the Foodbuzz Video I made! For those of you who asked, the songs are by Goh Nakamura, who is a Bay Area musician (perfect!) and he happens to be my co-star in the upcoming movie “Surrogate Valentine.” You can download his album FOR FREE on his website right now!

    Looks like some tasty eats yesterday! It is always hard to come down from a high like the one you were on from the weekend! That happens to us when we get back from conventions too.

      yes – that’s what my mom called the microwave when we were growing up – b/c they made a “ding” sound when they were done.

    Yes, it certainly is hard to get back to real life. Abe’s master chef touch with the canned soup—priceless!

    Those pretzels look awesome. I think I’ve seen them before in the health food store. I’ll have to remember them next time.
