Hey guys! Quick post – got a shoot this weekend and am scrambling around to get stuff done before tomorrow…

…we had a pre-production meeting over lunch in the Brentwood Country Mart. I’ve been here a few times since living in Los Angeles, but apparently not in three years -since I’ve never blogged about it!

Do NOT come during lunch time if you can help it.   Parking is a nightmare!!!

Grateful to have power in the house – our blackout only lasted 1/2 a day. There’s 3 loads of laundry calling my name!

TGI Thursday

breakfast - restaurant - snacks - vegan

So glad you guys liked my video with Dave Coulier! It was “Surreal” meeting him in person, having grown up on ABC’s TGIF. Between that and my Q&A with Candace Cameron Bure, this blog is well on its way to reaching a “Full House” of interviews!

Last night, Abe and I split a bag of Korean Banana puffs on the drive over to Dave’s. They taste like…well, banana-flavored puffs.

During the taping, I sampled some of the goodies he made – grilled peppers…

…and salmon pizza….

Recipes and the video can be viewed on this post!

Since we were in the Valley, Abe and I stopped at Vegan Factory for dinner. We split two dishes – Papaya Salad with “Shrimp”

Noodles with “Chicken” and Crushed Peanuts

I still wanted something sweet but Abe was not in the mood for any of their options…

…so I made do with grapes in the car

Today I fixed myself a Baked Apple French Toast for brunch at noon:

This time I added a couple extra drops of Liquid Stevia and used the toaster oven for 15 minutes. It wasn’t as dry/bland and didn’t need any jam or syrup. I also remembered to spray the ramekin first, so clean up was a breeze!

Happy Thursday! There’s 2 more days to enter my Vegan Cupcake Giveaway if you haven’t already.
