And the Grammy Goes To…

It’s so nice to have a fellow food blogger in the neighborhood! This morning I met up with Angela (who you may have heard on APM’s “The Splendid Table“) and we hit the Larchmont Farmer’s Market


She picked through leaves, I picked up some flowers…


…and then we started sampling!


Tapenades from Domenico’s Foods

Apple and Peach Pie shots from Cutie Pie That



And as usual, tons o fruit

I tried jujubes this time! They taste very apple-esque and crisp – not too sweet


After parting ways, I headed downtown with Abe


(Can you believe the side of a major highway looks like the set of a high school play?)


We checked out the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live. No pix to share, unfortunately.


Living Social Deal = 1/2 price


It’s a small museum but we had fun…the weekend’s a good time to go – it was pretty empty so all the recording booths were free. That’s right, we laid down some tracks!

But seriously, if you want to hear some music Abe and I did a long time ago (in a galaxy far far away) check out our band’s ancient myspace page.

    I use those sample cups like shot cups too. I haven’t done a shot since my 21st birthday and don’t plan on doing any more. But it’s funny to pretend…and they taste much better. :-)

    I went to Nokia Live recently and saw some sort of (music related) museum but I’m not sure this was it.

    Too bad you couldn’t take pictures, I would love to see the inside of it.

    Oh man…I don’t think I can remember my log-in for my MySpace account anymore.

    Apple and Peach Pie shots = I’ll take more than one, please :)

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      thanks, elise! i still FEEL 16…

  • Andrea@WellnessNotes

    Farmers’ markets are so much fun! And going with someone who enjoys food (and photographing it) just as much as you is even more fun…

    Glad you had fun recording at the museum!

  • Oats n’ Bows

    Those flowers are so pretty that they don’t even look real!

    Ancient is right. I don’t think I’ve seen the word “myspace” in 5 years. But it’s still rockin’ regardless :)

    You make me miss Cali like WHOA…altho Korea has some street food…I haven’t found an amazing farmer’s market in Seoul yet! I’ll have to live bi-cariously through you and your Cali eats for the next few years….

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      jealous you’re in seoul! i just watched “the kimchi chronicles” on pbs and saw so much good-looking food there. check it out for some ideas:
