This week I had worked on three shows. Heroes, Parks and Recreations, and The Forgotten. The first two were short days, so there wasn't any meals for that. I did have a nice tasty Chinese Chicken Salad with Teriyaki dressing from TJ's. After we were released early from Parks and Recreations. I love the ready made meals from there.
An upside from working the first two, I was happy to work in a scene with Amy Poehler on Parks and Recs. I've been a fan since she was on Upright Citizens Brigade. The latter show, The Forgotten, stars Christian Slater. *heart fluttering* Amazingly enough he still looks the same after 20 years. Remember Heathers, Pump Up the Volume, Billie Jean? Anyway, onto the food.
First, some mixed greens with kidney beans, garbonzo beans and peppers. The dressing was a vinaigrette on some kind. I couldn't really make put what it was, but the heat from the peppers helped give the salad a nice little kick to it.
The main dish
Clock wise from top: Angel hair pasta with pesto, a meatball with marinara sauce, sauteed veggies, a dinner roll, spaghetti, chicken cacciatore with mushrooms.
I enjoyed the meatball and angel hair pasta. I'm a sucker for pesto, so that was a given that I would like it. The dinner rolls was alright though it tasted a bit mushy, so I sandwiched it with the meatball I did enjoy the mushrooms from the chicken cacciatore, too. Overall is was an average meal nothing special.
Also, this past Tuesday I attended a small birthday dinner for a good friend of mine. The celebration was at Fuddruckers in Burbank, CA. It's a chain to restaurants that sort of reminds me of a T.G.I.F in decor with memorabellia stuck to the walls and games area for the kiddies. It's a place where you order you burger and side or whatever you prefer. They cook the meat the way you like it and you basically put in whatever condiment you want to your liking from the condiment bar. Simple.
I had a crispy chicken sandwich with some American cheddar on top. I piled on some tomato slices pickles and lettuce. I ordered the meal so mine came with a side of thick cut fries that i dipped in some honey mustard sauce. That thing was huge! Luckily, I had saved up my appetite for that night, so I had no problem finishing off my meal.
A few others had ordered the ostrich burger, a regular beef cheeseburgers, and veggies burgers.
To end off the night, we headed off to Yogurtland just down the street and had ourselves some froyo (frozen yogurt) for dessert. I always get the plain tart flavor because I like to taste the toppings when I mix them in. My toppings for the night: some fresh strawberries and granola topped with an animal cracker cookie. I didn't want to over do it as I was already stuffed from dinner. Seeing good friends and having good conversations. All in all it was a fun time.
Lastly for your enjoyment I give you little toy robots walking aimlessly. It was a "sci-fi"-theme kind of night.
