…over breakfast at Go Get Em Tiger.  No coffee for me, but there were eggs, a biscuit, and a shot of salsa.

We’ll probably be going-and-getting-em less, now that we received some coffee grounds from Groundwork

…and a gorgeous Thermos from Camelbak to put it in.  This little mama is SPILL PROOF and I’m in love.   Almost cried the other day when I left it at The Bungalow.

Went to see Birdman with Sam and John; mind blowing, as were these onion rings from The Oinkster afterwards.  (Their chili was solid as well.)

Been doing a little cooking!  What do you know?  On Halloween night I made a big batch of BBQ Jackfruit and shoved it into Toasted Bavarian Pretzel Rolls with coleslaw.  Glorious.

New headshots!  Taken by the multi-talented Violeta Meyners.  You can see more of the pictures on my imdb page.

Have you heard of the minimalist fashion site un-fancy?  It’s been inspiring me to de-clutter, get rid of things we don’t use, upgrade items.  Simplify.  It feels good to change with the seasons.

Hot Red Bus

restaurant - sandwich

We discovered Hot Red Bus via the BuzzFeed Sandwiches Around the World Video, and I’m so glad we did!

DSCN6619 “LA’s first British Indian Chip Shop” has great fries, as I tasted in the “Chip Butty” seen in the video

…another sandwich I sampled (which didn’t make the final edit) was the “Full English” – as in a Full English Breakfast…

…Sausage, Bacon, Beans, Mushrooms, Onions, Tomato, Cheddar, and a Runny Egg.  Bloody marvelous.

Usually, when I’m in Alhambra I get Chinese Food; next time, I think I’ll stop by for some Fish n Chips.

Olson’s Scandinavian Delicatessen

restaurant - sandwich

Our BuzzFeed sandwich adventure has been getting some great press online!

The shoot brought us to some new places; one gem I couldn’t wait to share is Olson’s Scandinavian Delicatessen.

The shop has been around since 1948 but Christian Kneedler took over and gave it an update.

I fell in love with the shop, the space…

…THE CANDY!DSCN6695

Must admit, I did not care for this salty black licorice…

DSCN6713…but I DID gobble up the rest of the gummy/sour treats.  I also LOVED the shrimp sandwich (aka Skagen) you see in the video.  Their breakfast sandwich recently made LA Weekly’s list too!

P.S. – My favorite places to eat in LA are being featured on The Rex App’s blog – Olson’s would’ve definitely been on the list, but I did the interview before the sandwich shoot!
