Abe has been crazy with his Huffington Post Live launches TOMORROW) in Los Angeles so this afternoon I had the next best thing – his parents!
Jou Jou Cafe…
…so glad we did! I think this is my new go-to place while my Dad’s in the hospital.
When I lived in NYC, these make-your-own salad places were everywhere. Weirdly, they don’t survive in Los Angeles. The only one I’ve ever been to closed within a year, despite their celebrity connection.
Essentially, you choose your lettuce…
…and they finely chop/toss it for you.
I got mixed greens, Cajun Chicken, Feta, Carrot, Tomato, Dried Cranberries, Broccoli, and Peas with Balsamic Vinaigrette.
My Aunt/Uncle brought us more fresh veggies from their garden too.
We all shared a beautiful banana bread brought by my mother’s friend Kathleen. Funny, it was actually from Pennsylvania also.
It was really helpful to have both David/Wendy here with us, not only because they’re close family, but because they’re both professional psychotherapists. Every single day has been a roller coaster. Today has been particularly difficult.
I’m putting together a collection of inspirational photos for my father (and myself). If you have any, please email them to actorsdiet(at)gmail.com
