Paul Newman Was Here!

Two weeks ago, I arrived home to a gigantic box sitting on my doorstep. Naturally I assumed it was for my roommate, since he gets all of his business equipment delivered in the same manner on a daily basis. Then I saw MY NAME!

I opened it in a true foodie manner.
I began pulling out jars of Newman’s Own marinara and bottles of Newman’s Own salad dressing.
Then I realized, “Wait, if Newman’s Own is sending me this, then that means…”
YES!!! (Oh wait, you still don’t understand, do you?)
I received three jars of Newman’s Own marinara, three bottles of Newman’s Own salad dressing, two coupons for Newman’s Own pizza and… A FLIP HD CAM!!!
I wasn’t excited at all.
Pardon the nose stud – it’s not real, I had an audition that day.

I submit a recipe idea for a contest sponsored by Foodbuzz and Newman’s Own, and was lucky enough to be chosen to receive all this amazing free stuff, and FILM the recipe! And so, without further ado, I present to you my video recipe: Macadamia and Coconut Encrusted Mahi Mahi with White Wine and Pineapple-infused Balsamic Reduction featuring Newman’s Own Chardonnay.

Or, since that’s a ridiculously long name, Tropical Fishsticks!

Here and Now

     Exercise of the day: Squatting down, lifting heavy boxes, and speed walking at work. That counts!

     I have nothing to enthrall you with for today. My camera was kidnapped by my roommate for the day, and nothing out of the ordinary happened except for a lovely visit from my mum who took me to a wonderful lunch at Lazy Dog Cafe. Thanks, mom!!! I had half of the chicken walnut salad sandwich and a cup of the tortilla soup.

     This is my here. This is my now.

Paul Newman’s Cabernet Sauvignon and a script.
Side note: Paul Newman is one of my all-time favorite actors. And those EYES!!!
     Tomorrey begins day one of eight on set of the short film I’m starring in. I’ll be leaving the house at 5:30am tomorrow morning with a large mug of coffee and a Monster on hand! Right now I’m running laundry, charging cell phones and cameras, and packing up my car for the long haul. The next time I’ll be home will be Monday night (if I’m lucky), but I’ll have all my blogging materials with me to do some quick posts, if nothing else.
     I’ll also be tweeting from set! Follow me here!
Happy weekend!
