(I started writing this post SO long ago…where does the time go?)
eating an AMAZING dinner at Republique. I think it was one of the best meals of my life.
really wanting to send out Christmas cards. It seemed like the adult thing to do. But we just couldn’t get our act together so I made a “virtual” one and shared it on facebook instead. Next year?
celebrating New Year’s Eve with an old-school dinner with friends: standing rib roast + roasted fingerlings + mushroom sherry sauce
making some 2014 resolutions/goals. Some are really cool like a big trip and others are…wearing lipstick + perfume every day.
reading and seeing The Wolf of Wall Street. (Thoughts?!)
baking these oatmeal scones
eating at L & E Oyster Bar in Silverlake with friends who were visiting.
picking up a copy of kinfolk. Have you seen these magazine/books? Motto: Discover things to cook, make and do. They come out quarterly and are simply stunning. (Recommended by same friend.)
seeing James Turrell exhibit at LACMA. (Also, with same friends…it was a great weekend!)
subsequently deciding that an annual pass to LACMA was necessary.
taking a tour of the LA Times. This tour was FANTASTIC. (Did you know that the LA Times is one of the only papers in the country that has a test kitchen?)
on a total smoothie kick. (How to make a green smoothie.)
visiting the Getty Villa. No words.
drinking overpriced wine and mediocre food at Moonshadows in Malibu. (At least the sunset was amazing.)
really busy at work. It’s Spring newsletter season!
loving this lunch: veggie burger (Qrunch and Hilary’s Eat Well are my faves!) + a slice of melted goat cheese + fresh avocado. OBSESSED! I add baby carrots and deli turkey or chicken on the side for a prep-free meal that is SO satisfying and delicious.
