Waffle Sundae on a Friday Night

Got a sneak peek of the Surrogate Valentine sequel last night:


Since the screening in San Francisco will be right after the Yes We’re Open premiere at The Castro, I asked Dave (my director) if I could get a DVD. That way, I can attend the after-party at the W and still make it to the Daylight Savings Q&A without being clueless re: the plot – it’s been a while since we shot it!


Always pretty weird for me to see myself on screen, but especially strange to experience a movie for the first time without an audience present (I guess it doesn’t feel “real” for me) – I invited some friends over to watch with me.


Had to sample this Garlic Spread first – Majestic Garlic said you could eat it straight up, and I was skeptical since it’s raw…


…but they were right! It’s not harsh at all, just creamy and delicious (almost aioli-ish). Wolfed down with a plate of veggies…


…and a few Food Should Taste Good “The Works” (<—Happy Tortilla Chip Day!) while wrapping up a late-afternoon phone meeting.


A larger platter (with hummus) got assembled for our guests…


…I also served waffle sundaes! Used a pre-made pumpkin mix this time.


Toppings: Butter Pecan Brittle ice cream, Fig Syrup, and TJ’s crushed Cinnamon Almonds


I ate two from the second batch…


…one with everything but the almonds…



…the other with nuts (hold the ice cream)


Movie munchies…


…popcorn, of course! Just a handful of the Cheddar and Caramel Corn mix.


Happy to report that Daylight Savings is wonderful (get your tickets now, San Fran and Austin!). Fans of the first movie will not be disappointed (which, if haven’t seen, you can still buy/rent online or add to your netflix queue – it’ll become available even quicker if you rate/review it too).

Also fun to watch with someone else from the cast…


…speaking of my darling Joy, SHE WAS JUST CAST IN A NEW NBC PILOT YESTERDAY!!!!!!


We all had celebrated with her. (Julius “Photobomber” Chenwald too.)

    How do you feel about the waffle iron now?

    Was talking with Kareem and Ernie last night that we want Goh to come back to Miami for the screening of Daylight Savings. You should all come!

        Ha…yes, the waffle iron clean up can be extra fun. They make ones where the panels come out which makes for easier cleaning.

        Hmmm…seriously? Let me see what we can arrange when the time comes. You never know what little tricks I might pull from my hat.

    Congrats to Joy! And yay for waffles. I just got a maker…and I’ve been eating them constantly! Thank you for sharing with me. It brightened my Saturday and inspired me to get back into the kitchen and make something delicious. I hope you have a blessed Sunday!
