Brunch at the DGA

acting - brunch - trader joe's

This morning I participated in a Directing/Acting Workshop. Usually I sit in 40 minutes of traffic to get to Sunset/Fairfax, but at 9:45am on a Saturday it was smooth sailing, and I found myself at The DGA building super early.

Luckily, my favorite place to kill time was open

There are SO MANY new products at Trader Joe’s!!!

Especially excited about this Veggie Bento Box – anyone tried it yet?!?

There was a breakfast buffet at the workshop

My stomach was nervous and I didn’t want to feel weighed down while I was acting. Since my presentation was up first, I grabbed a plate to eat for afterwards.

My scene partner did the same thing…

…and after we were done, we got to relax, watch everyone else perform, and chow down.

Acting with Aaron Yoo and seeing other very talented actors’ and directors’ process was a terrific way to spend a Saturday – I wish I could do it every weekend!

Lenny Kravitz Pizza

dessert - dinner - product review

I had “American Woman” (the Lenny Kravitz version) in my head all night because of this box:

I got a few free coupons from American Flatbread to sample their Artisan Pizzas. Hard to find (not in stock at two Whole Foods) and a bit pricey ($10) but filled with all kinds of goodies for a frozen product:

like "good Vermont Water"

Abe and I split the Tomato and Three Cheese flavor I found at Erewhon

I cut it into 4 pieces, rather than 2 big ones. I’m a quantity gal!

Simple side of steamed broccoli

Both of us really liked the flavor – we compared it to high-end Ellio’s. (Which may sound insulting, but I promise it’s not.)

What goes better with organic artisan pizza than vegan hemp milk ice cream?

With my two scoops of Tempt, a Girl Scout Thin Mint + Frozen Mango chunks
