I haven’t really celebrated this holiday since I was a kid (and religious) but it still feels weird being away from home and Abe. I woke up early and took a walk to the Whole Foods in Pacific Heights
The weather was really weird this morning – a mix of sun and drizzle.
By the afternoon it cleared up and got sunny, right before lunch and rehearsal with our director Rich
There was a little wait at Shanghai Dumpling King, and it got even longer after we sat down
There were 4 of us and we each ordered a dish to share.
I picked a veg (of course) – sauteed snow peas with garlic
…with hiding noodles
Beef with Broccoli – and a couple carrots too
The house specialty – Xiao Long Bao
I ate about 3 or 4 of these – filled with pork and soup!
Two platefuls that looked like this
And about three pieces of the crispiest scallion pancakes I’ve ever tasted
Light and fluffy, almost like Puri!
We rehearsed for a few hours, then came back to the hotel and I repeated the first half of my day again – walk, talk on the phone with Abe, and computer work.
No Easter eggs. No chocolate bunnies. No jelly beans. No lamb. No ham. Just some late night snacks.
Along with the mini Chocolate and Coconut Raw Revolution, apple and cocoa, I tried a new product
These instant packets will have to replace my stripped down miso soup habit – cause there’s no fridge here!
Tomorrow is two things – the start of the film shoot and the day Easter candy goes on sale!
Did you celebrate today?
