Waffle Sammiches and ADR!

     Have you ever tried a sandwich where waffles are used as the bread? You have? Oh. 
Well anyway, I never had before today. 
Drool over that for a minute. I’ll post this same picture gratuitously at the end again for emphasis.
I drove down to Orange today for some ADR work on a short film I did last August.
Fancy sound booth!
We had to re-record a few lines that had background noises that were drowning them out: aka AIRPLANES!!!
So much technology!
Co-star David, Vogue-ing for the camera.
After a little over three hours of ADR, the director, producer and I went for lunch at a typical sandwich shop.
Bruxie, a little corner restaurant in Orange.
They have a savory selection and a sweet selection. I hadn’t eaten since breakfast, so as loudly as the S’Mores sandwich with rich Belgian chocolate, graham cracker and toasted marshmallow was calling me, I went for the sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese sandwich with fresh basil, arugula and balsamic reduction.
There are no words.
The waffle that encased this happiness-stuffed filling was light and fluffy with a slight hint of sweetness. With the first bite, you get a tangy yet fresh taste of goat cheese infused with basil, the crisp crunch of arugula, the chewy sweetness of the sun-dried tomatoes and to top it off, a whisper of sweet balsamic reduction that swirls around your taste buds, dancing a happy waltz.
Okay, maybe there are a few words…

Summer Filming: Day 8

     Yesterday was my last day on set. So sad!!! We had a 9am call, had to wait while camera got set up and after shooting a few scenes in a musty basement, had lunch.

Spinach salad with strawberries, corn with zucchini, linguini mac and cheese and some kind of chicken.
     It’s been a long haul, but we wrapped around 7pm. Crew had to clean up and get everything packed away in the truck, then we all went out to Haven Gastropub in Orange.
Pulled pork sandwich with pommes frites and housemade ketchup!
Warm apple-cabbage slaw on top of the pulled pork. Happiness!
Chelsea and Coco.
Scott (with his awesome new haircut ala Jenny) and the Chelsmeister.
Boa, Jenny and Ryan.
Malachi, deep in thought after some deep, introspective film talk.
     The past nine days have been some of the most incredible of my life. I’ve made amazing friendships that WILL continue, and I have fallen in love with these people. 
     For now, I’m back to work and taping auditions, but I’ll be keeping these people and memories in my heart and mind to keep myself going through my retail days. Either way, I’m LOVING my life!
Best nine days. EVER!

Summer Filming: Day 7

     One more day left of this craziness! I will be incredibly sad to see it all go. These past 9 days have been the most fun I’ve ever had on set. Sniff.

     We filmed in Toluca Lake today, in the kitchen of one of the houses. There was nothing too crazy, except for all the stunts I had to do. My elbow and knee are a little banged up, and I am proud! Lunch was from one of my all-time favorite restaurants, Porto’s!

Ham, cheese, tomato, lettuce sandwich on their freshly made bread, a chicken empanada and some kind of pastry filled with ground beef. Guess whose appetite is back!
I asked for a quarter of a cupcake, but Jenny MADE me eat the entire half!
     We filmed a few slow motion bike sequences, which look AMAZING, then headed out for dinner before we had to meet up for some night pickups. I headed over to my costar’s house and we got all chef-y!
Ahhh, I’ve missed chopping things!
We made a stir-fry with onions, yellow squash, mushrooms, steak and white wine with LOTS of HdP 🙂
And since the wine was opened, we figured we shouldn’t let it go bad!
     After dinner, we headed back for our pickups and walked down dark streets in the middle of Burbank. Thankfully, we wrapped and I headed down to Orange, where we’ll be filming our final day tomorrey. 
Time to crash!
