I used to grab food from this place when it was across the street from The Arclight. Now that it’s moved to Highland, I rarely have an excuse to visit…
…but there was a Scoutmob deal that was expiring!
Not hungry enough for a full on meal…
…I gravitated towards the bake goods instead.
A piece of cake might’ve been the obvious choice for my blog’s birthday, but given my passion for figs, this Oat Bar turned out to be a more appropriate celebratory snack.
There’s a lovely seating area outside…
…I chose to use my car/lap instead.
Heaven. Like a Fig Newton married a piece of Coffee Cake. I was covered in crumbs by the time I got home.
Already knew what was for dinner – the leftovers I made for Abe on Sunday.
You may wonder what he eats on evenings while I’m devouring my melons as meals? Weird stuff like this. I turn into a mad scientist and experiment on him.
The sauce was made of Kimlan Soy Paste, and Chocolate/Raspberry PB Crave. RAAAAANDOM. Plus rice wine vinegar and salty/starchy cooking water from the pasta. All tossed together with brussels sprouts that had been roasted in the toaster oven with garlic oil, dill, garlic/onion salt.
And as if this dish wasn’t already completely bonkers, I added fake bacon for crunch.
Surprisingly, there was NO traffic on the freeway. Monday at 6:00pm is the perfect time to head west!
After a little walk to the top…
…we unpacked dinner and ate. I brought a blanket, but it was too cold and windy to sit on the beach.
Still a nice view though!
Woah – random pasta was tasty. Couldn’t discern any ONE of those ingredients I put in, but it was all good together!
Garlic Parmesan Pretzel Crisps parked between us…
…I had a handful with a small scoop of seconds – Abe said this combo tasted like Combos!
For dessert, I ate a small Dandy Dapple Pluot.
This was so much more fun than a fancy dinner out! (A lot cheaper too.)
As the sun went down, and we drove home, the soundtrack couldn’t have been more perfect.
Who knew eating in my car all day would be so much fun?
