Day 1. We were on location in downtown Los Angeles, so food and snacks were plenty to keep the cast and crew happy, while we worked long hours on these next two days.
I enjoyed the fire-roasted tomato. Just look at the char on the skin. When sliced open, the juices of the tomato just oozed out. Cut a tiny slice of that with a piece of the roast beef and some rice. Delicious. Probably the best roast beef I've had in a while. There was also some grilled calamari steaks, but the roast beef was just calling my name. How can you not resist that tender piece of meat?
I had it with a side of salad of mixed greens, pomegranates and grape fruit, tossed in a vinaigrette topped with some fresh mushrooms, fresh pineapple slices. For dessert, a delicious fruit tart.
I don't think I need to tell you how much I LOVED the fruit tart, do I?
Day 2. Same location as day 1.
Top clockwise: Grilled yellowfin with tomato sauce, white rice with beans, a slice of pumpernickel bread, lima beans with sauteed mushrooms, pasta with red sauce or what looked like a tomato pesto. I was craving something a little lighter thatn a large piece of a grilled chicken thigh and leg, so I opted for the fish. It was enjoyable. A little cooked through for my taste, but I ate it all up. I did love the lima beans with mushrooms. It was a beany kind of meal.
I had the usual side salad of mixed greens with fresh mushrooms and a balsamic dressing and a couple of pineapple slices. Now the dessert was something to die for. A nice scoop of apple pie with graham cracker crust and a piece rich chocolate fudge cake. Oh yeah!!! I was tempted to get a second slice, but I didn't want to look greedy, so I just savored what I had in front of me. One bite at a time.
Day 3. Working on the 20th Century Fox Studio lot. Since we had a late call time by the time we were released for lunch most of the places to eat on the lot were already closed for the day. Luckily, there was one cafe that was opened late. So I ventured out in the cold with a fellow actor walking through the Fox lot towards some grub.
I had a simple slice of pepperoni pizza with some mixed greens with corn, edamame, topped with some balsamic dressing. A simple satisfying flair. We were also served some chili and chowder as well as fresh made crepes later into the night, I didn't have some of the soup as I was still full from the pizza, but it looked delicious and warm for a cold night. But I did manage to snag some snacks from the craft service table to take home with me. The perks of the craft service table.
