I’ve Been Spoiled

November 9, 2010

in breakfast, dinner, lunch, salads, snacks

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 ;)

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.

Haha…yeah, I can definitely see how the Foodbuzz Fest would spoil someone! Lucky you thought to bring some of the goodness back with you!

Your hubby is so right about not being defensive. Kudos to him for figuring it out! :)

10 lowandbhold November 9, 2010 at 11:41 am

I always feel that way too after a fun vacation, the food just can’t compare sometimes.

WOW – lots of goodies from food buzz :) That granola looks so tasty- I can never get enough granola. Glad you’re home and getting all caught up. That always feels good after a trip. Hope the rest of your week treats you oh so well

16 vanillasugar November 9, 2010 at 3:54 pm

ding donged them! LOLOLOL!!

17 Lynn at The Actors Diet November 9, 2010 at 9:44 pm

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.

18 wendy lee November 9, 2010 at 4:25 pm

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

19 Lauren November 9, 2010 at 5:27 pm

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

Apricot espresso cookies??? YUM!!
