Painfully cheesy title. Yes, Malachi is bailing on this country and taking up residence in France for six months. He’s not leaving for another three weeks, but with my travel schedule for work I wasn’t sure if I’d get another chance to see him. Bon Voyage lunch, it was!
Category Archives: potato salad
We went to Vivian’s Millennium Cafe, a little hole in the wall on Ventura Boulevard in Studio City. To get to the patio, you actually have to walk through the kitchen!
The courtyard is ridiculously cute and cozy. It’s tucked between two buildings and surrounded by plants that block out any traffic sounds. You wouldn’t even know that you were in LA – and that impresses me.
One last candid shot of Malachi before he becomes snobby and too uppity and important to eat day old bread.
(French law prohibits the consumption of bread that is older than two hours.)
I ordered the chicken salad sammich on wheat which was tasty, but the REAL star of the meal was the potato salad! I don’t know what they put in this – smiles, sunshine, shooting stars, warm ocean breeze… but whatever it was, it was INCREDIBLE!!! The most epic potato salad of my life. I’ve been daydreaming about it ever since.
Farewell, Malachi! I look forward to harassing you on the interwebs, and then in person when you return!
This is my 100th post! That happened really fast! I was hoping to do something epic, but I’ll just be going back to my roots: hiking and EATING!
It was beautiful and overcast the entire day!
We had a nice chilly hour-long hike.
The Monstas are back! This one had 6 cups of spinach, 1/4 of a cup of soymilk, 1/2 of a frozen banana, 2 stalks of asparagus and 1/4 of a cup of frozen blueberries.
For lunch today, I went to a local cafe with the roommate and we split a tuna sandwich on toasted rye with a side of potato salad and a piece of dry watermelon that I didn’t touch.
Our lovely lunch needed to be rounded out with chocolate. I had the most ridiculously thick, chocolatel-y brownie I’ve ever had in my entire life, and my roommate got a hot cafe mocha.
I went over to my parental unit’s to meet up with my mom for our Tuesday pottery class :)!
Tonight was glazing! I glazed five pieces and spent the rest of the time trimming one for MY ONLY CONTEST WINNER so far!
There you go, Amanda and Andy! It should be glazed and fired in about 2 or 3 weeks 🙂
My mom hand painted/glazed this! She’s so talented!
I’m not quite as talented. I think they put that sign up after I joined class…
After class, we started heading home but I was distracted by the beautiful bright lights of this place!
BURGERS!!!! This magical land is called Five Guys Burgers and Fries. The lights have a gravitational pull. I tried to avoid it, but I have no control over scientific facts! GRAVITATIONAL PULL!
Hello baby cheeseburger and fries! These fries are awesome! They’re made from actual potatoes with the skins on – magic!
Here’s something new: I tried to make one of those chocolate-cakes-in-a-mug two nights ago. How did it turn out, you ask? Here’s a little photo essay for you.
Looks good so far!
Puffing up, just like it’s supposed to!
And it turned into a baseball. Just like it’s… supposed to?
Yeah, this was a big fail. I microwaved it way too long and it was very dry and tasted like cocoa-scented dirt. I do not recommend.
Post-class, it was pilot night! We watched a new pilot that I was in for – “Raising Hope” – I was up for the role that went to Bijou Phillips. Hilarious show! I hope it gets the viewers and ratings it deserves!
For you guys who haven’t entered to win the last two pieces of pottery, all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog about why you need a piece of pottery, then put a link to my blog on your Twitter!
