What’s New Pussycat

body image/beauty - giveaway

Who caught The World Dog Awards?  I don’t make goals/resolutions – but my only wish for 2015 is that Julius and I attend next year.


Speaking of awards, I’m actually getting one!  Kearny Street Workshop in San Francisco is honoring Thick Dumpling Skin at this year’s Celebrate Your Body.  They’re gearing up for the January 31st event with a social media campaign – feel free to participate!


I will not be there to give an acceptance speech in person, because I’m busy working on a few top-secret things…that require me to eat a lot of salads (below are raw brussels sprouts, and salmon/veggie leftovers from Deluca)…


….and NOT massive amounts of cookies.  So I’m giving away my ticket to the sold-out LA Cookie Con in Pasadena, January 25th.  If you want to win, leave a comment and tell me your favorite cookie! (Update: Winner has been picked.)

Thanksgiving 2014

dessert - dinner - holidays

This was our first year volunteering


…didn’t take any pix while we were in the kitchen, but I did snap a few in the donation room…



…really wish I had taken a “before” photo – look at this organization! #SoSatisfying


We wound up being done a lot earlier than I had anticipated, so we crashed Mark/Jen’s Thanksgiving just as it was beginning…


IMG_1635…every single thing was perfect – from the turkey to all the sides – creamed corn, brussels sprouts, stuffing, candied yams, salad, cranberry sauce…

…and a slice of Momofuku Crack Pie to go.


More followed!  Scott/McKenna hosted a dessert party that went past midnight. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving; if you’re struggling with body image this morning because you overate (like me) check out #thx4support.
