Slim Tuesday

Big day in the food world – Mardi Gras AND National Pancake Day!!! I’m happy to report that the birthday bacon sundae from my NOLA trip was featured on CNN’s “Best Bites in the Big Easy,” but unfortunately my morning has been too crazy for any King Cake, or even to whip up a batch of instant oatmeal pancakes!


Breakfast to go – a baggie filled with TJ’s Frosted Shredded Wheats, plus a blood orange, which got pretty messy in the car…


…when I got back from 50 minutes of rush hour traffic, I took Julius for a walk and admired the neighborhood art…




…then ate the other half of yesterday’s melon before a Skype meeting.


Now I’m off again, to see my “Daylight Savings” director (and “Yes We’re Open” co-star) Dave – the San Diego Asian Film Festival just posted this video of us from the red carpet + the Q&A after our “Surrogate Valentine” screening last October.

Any Mardi Gras (or pancake) celebrations going on with you guys?

    Thanks for mentioning Mardi Gras! I was thinking everyone had forgotten about it. I enjoyed your post from this day last year, it got me thinking about green yellow purple frosting on cinnamon cake on the way home from work tonight!

    Here in Hawaii, you gotta have Malasada’s. Deep fried dough. Crunchy on the outside fluffy on the inside and rolled in sugar. Oh… so Ono (delicious). And yes I picked up a dozen. On the way home from work.

    I love the neighborhood art (“You signed the cast around my heart” melted my heart) and the SDAFF interview…Chad’s Christopher Walken impersonation is priceless!

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      • Mina Riazi
