(Almost) every year we go to The Little Bar for a Halloween party hosted by our friends Mary and Dee

My favorite “non costume” yet…

…very similar to one of my outfits from Nice Girls Crew Season 2…

…which launches on demand today! If you have Comcast go to “On Demand” –> “Movies” –> “Movie Collections” –> “Cinema Asian America.” I, unfortunately, have Time Warner Cable, so I’ve no idea if this actually works…

Rita’s La Canada

dessert

We met up with Ari and Betsy this morning at the Larchmont Farmers Market

IMG_0579

…where their son tried a persimmon for the first time! I filled up on a few cups of samples, as well.

Later in the day, Abe and I took a little drive out to La Canada Flintridge

…to ANOTHER Rita’s Water Ice! Redondo Beach, Santa Monica…hoping this means one will open closer to us soon.

DSCN4005

I had a sample of the new Dulce de Leche flavor – which was actually too sweet for me (shocking)…

DSCN3987

…wound up with a small S’mores, Light Vanilla Custard…

DSCN4003

…Brownie water ice too.

A bite of Abe’s Mint Combo + Chocolate Custard…

…they carry the Prospect Philly-style Soft Pretzels too. I didn’t have any, but Abe was pretty happy…

….though they ran out of mustard!!!

Before Sunset

salads - vegetarian

Going to be sad when it starts getting dark early.

DSCN3069

These were the remnants from the Greek Chicken-free Salad – no more “chicken,” obviously – but cherry tomatoes, cucumber, feta, olives…

DSCN3079

…and parsley.

DSCN3094

I didn’t season it right away, since we weren’t eating for a while and I didn’t want it to get too liquid-y. But I did make the dressing, with this Cherry Balsamic Vinegar

DSCN3097

…a little bit of olive oil, mustard, and Smoked Sea Salt.

DSCN3105

After an Epsom Salt soak (so helpful for back aches!) I mixed them all together; divided the meal…

DSCN3112

…and the Rita’s Pretzel too.

So delicious. So simple. So was this dessert.

When the sun went down, we went out, restocked our freezer, and refilled our bowls.

May make it my mission to go through the entire Ben and Jerry’s Greek collection.

Mannequin

breakfast - dogs

I usually prefer my melon first thing in the morning, but now that I’m on meds, I’ve switched to yogurt.

DSCN3032

This was plain/nonfat/Greek Stonyfield, with Stevia and a handful of Kashi Go Lean Crunch

DSCN3026

…then another sprinkle of Cracklin Oat Bran.

DSCN3041

We all had to leave the house for a few hours while it got cleaned – so Julius came with us to The Grove

…the line for a new iPhone was a bit too long/hot so we wound up driving to Santa Monica for Rita’s instead.

Didn’t have any water ice, but finally ate my honeydew half, and am saving the Soft Pretzel for later!
