Happy Hanukkah!

I’m not going to lie.  My favorite thing to do these days is play Angry Birds while watching Oprah.

Hollywood’s been shutting down and I’m on vacay mode.  Been going to a lot of parties, eating a lot of sugar…

…and when I’m not stuffing my belly with cake, I’m eating melons, salad, soup and oatmeal.

Actually, when I have control over what’s on the menu, that’s all I really crave…

DSCN7806…even at a place like Tam O’Shanter’s, where they had Xmas Goose on the menu!

I couldn’t say no to Trifle and Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert, though.  Phenomenal.

Helenna’s book came out!  I read an advanced copy and highly recommend it to anyone navigating the entertainment industry…

…though there is no guide in the world to address the absolute madness happening with my friend Randall right now.  My mouth is constantly agape these days.

P.S. We saw the Angela Lansbury play, also on the LA Times cover.  Super fun!

Urban Radish

After visiting The Springs for some Holiday Shopping, I decided to check out Urban Radish nearby.

There’s a little parking lot (with electric charging stations)…

…inside, an oasis of groceries!

Fresh organic and seasonal produce, too.

Didn’t check out the specialty market but was very intrigued.  Next time I find myself downtown, I’ll grab a bite from their deli/menu.

Project Breakfast LA

art/crafts - brunch - food events

Such a thrill to sit my bum at this beautiful table yesterday next to a bunch of my favorite LA bloggers…

…thanks to the brilliance of our talented hosts, Jami Curl, Boo Simms, and Sarah Simms Hendrix.

None of the bubbly stuff for me…

…but I did enjoy the most epic hot chocolate (made from Quin Marshmallows) while we got crafty.

After working on our holiday projects, we gathered to eat.

Sarah’s breakfast skills are no joke.  I’m hoping she’ll post these recipes on her blog soon!

From the mini toast to the brilliant salads…

…every single thing was scrumptious.  Especially this bacon, glazed with Quin’s Maple and Black Pepper Caramel.

Baked Eggs…

…and a perfect passion fruit/pomegranate parfait.

Praying for more Project Breakfasts – a most uplifting way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
