Night and Market Song - Between Echo Park and Silver Lake


Hungry?  We've got you covered.


Night and Market Song.  Solid, sweet, super fresh, chili-spiked


Thai soul food.


Hot, hot ambiance.


It is likely to expand your gastronomic horizons.


At least by your second visit - which is more or less guaranteed!





Happy Weekend!

I Did Leave the House With My Camera This Summer. A Time or Two


To adventure far-ish afield


to los Jardines de Senor Fish


to Little Tokyo

 (it's actually the "Far Bar" now, though I haven't been in)


cuz  Ebisu is my favorite for cold Sapporo mugs, noodles, tempura, tofu and-and.........all so yummy.


to 'Lette for macarons.....


For a little neighborhood gleaning.


And then, home again.  Where the heart is.  That's been my L.A. summer on not-quite-film!

It's that time of the year again.  

Things are heating up at the Huy Fong Factory in Irwindale.  It's all good!

Mmmmmmm Mmmmmmmm



No shortage of sunshine in L.A. this summer.


I've been using lots of citrus zest to make salads special


Squash blossoms from my Lebanese-Armenian grocery store:  cheap, beautiful and fresh!
(SuperKing I love you!)


We put them on our De Sano neapolitan pizzas after (another!) Home Depot run.

What are you going to eat this weekend?

Otherwise Occupied

of what else

My Dream Life Lately


Though my summer has been about things that are Urgent.  Important.  Necessary.  Useful.


A part of my brain still looks a whole lot like this.


I mean, when I'm able to dream.


Sleep has been fleeting lately.  Short spurts of it.  Not enough.


I need to rest.  To lose myself.


In someone else's landscape.  


After all that's what summer vacation is all about at least for me............What about yours?
