Los Angeles...

Isn't one of the best parts about traveling the food? Eating all those favorites you have been missing while away. We started out on friday having Zankou chicken, our favorite fast food; Middle-Eastern spit roasted chicken with hummus, tomatoes, pita bread, garlic sauce and bright pink pickled turnips, YUMMM! This is the restaurant we miss most since we moved to Chicago, it's healthy fast food!

Our next great meal was Armenian marinated grilled beef, chicken, eggplant, whole tomatoes, peppers, rice and lahvash.

Today we headed to another old favorite, SeƱior Fish where we had ceviche tostadas, carnitas and chicken tacos washed down with large cold horchatas.

I am really enjoying being away from home because there are always too many things to do and I never really relax.
This morning I thoroughly enjoyed having a cup of tea, in a cup that I made years ago and had forgotten about, reading a good book on my Kindle (Olive Kitteridge) while sitting on my mother in laws patio. This is my view from the sofa

and this is what I listen too.

Believe it or not, these are standard pet shop gold fish that are usually sold 2 for a dollar. My kids won these 3 fish at a carnival in little glass bowls about 5 years ago. Since they have had plenty of space to swim around in they have grown to be about 10 inches long.


  1. Enjoy! Enjoy!! Enjoy!!! Take pleny pictures when you can and have a great/safe time.

  2. So lovely. And I must say... your hair looks great. I can see that the gray has grown in beautifully!

  3. You are making me hungry! Hmmm...time to go visit my son in Southern Cal again. I miss the food too!
