“The Apothecary” is a new Young Adult novel written by Maile Meloy that’s getting rave reviews. Abe’s already read (and loved) it – think “Harry Potter” meets John le Carré.
We celebrated the book’s release yesterday – couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw who was there:
Been wanting to try Cool Haus Ice Cream Sandwiches for years, but have never caught up with the truck. They gave me samples of every flavor!!!
I shared a heavenly Potato Chip and Skor Bar cookie with 3 friends, before hitting the dinner buffet.
Heirloom LA did a tremendous job catering – every single bite was wonderful!
Pizzas, grilled veggies, charcuterie…
…delectable passed hors d’oeuvres
My favorite bite was the chicken n waffles with a blueberry/whipped cream topping. I ate seconds of those, along with another plate from the Crostini Station…
…then hit the Taco Buffet.
Stuffed one tortilla with beef shortrib, salsa, and guac; on the side – halibut, chicken, and caponata.
Pretended to be a kid for these gluten-free chicken fingers.
Ready to burst at this point, but there was one more thing on the menu – Mac and Cheese Lasagna Cupcakes.
My Cool Haus creation – Blackberry Ginger Sorbet sandwiched between a Maple Waffle and Vegan Ginger Cookie.
Epic. Sooooo epic.
I dominated the entire dessert, but just a taste of the paper it came wrapped in.
Yup, that’s right. Edible. Tasted like communion wafer.
Hope the kiddies don’t try nibbling the pages out of this book – I want to read them!
