I'm still here with some random eats

I'm still here. I'm still alive and kicking. It's coming down to the wire as I'm only days away from shooting a new project. I'm excited, I'm nervous, I'm feeling anxious. I'm ball of mixed emotions right now while trying to get all the final little details in place. I do apologize for my lack of commenting on some your blogs out there. I try to read several when I have some downtime from pre-production.

Anyways...I've been having random eats lately. --

Mini penne pasta with spinach, garlic, tomato mix

I used two large tomatoes and cooked those up with a few garlic cloves, then added some frozen spinach I had in the freezer. You can add this with any kind of pasta.  It a fast ease "go-to" meal.

lumpia, rice, lechon with liver sauce, Filipino style spaghetti, grilled hotdog on a stick

This one is actually from my friend's daughters 1st birthday. It was a rather big celebration with a few Filipino traditions. The delicious lechon and crispy skin. Oh yeah... there was rice, too.
I did have seconds as they also had some sisig and Filipino bbq on a stick. Must not forget to mention the birthday cake. No birthday is complete without the cake, right?

Chinese Chicken Salad from Joan's on Third

I love this place. Located several blocks from the Beverly Center in Los Angeles. This place serves up quality food that would make you come back. My favorite item on the menu is this salad. Fresh, filling and delicious. It's a great place to chill in the afternoon. It's always packed. Not once when I have gone that there was a lull moment. It was a nice break from an afternoon of doing production stuff.

I also love their cupcakes, which I had for dessert. A nice vanilla cupcake. Yum!!

Ground beef mix with potato, onion, red bell pepper

For the life of me, I can't remember the name of this one. But I have my mom to thank to cooking it up. It's slightly Filipino in cooking style and very reminiscent to potato hash in some ways. You generaly eat this with rice, but we decided to go with the lettuce wrap route.

Mmmmmm...

Well...hopefully after this weekend I'll be able to get back into the swing of blogging. I actually miss putting up my daily posts. It's like I'm going through some withdrawal. Hahaha... But I'll be back. And I can't wait to share with you all my new project. I'm excited!

Glad you're alive! haven't had that ground beef & potato dish in forever. I remember liking it more as I got older. I too have been getting back into blogging. It's been tough with so much stuff going on this summer but that's what summer's all about right?

Glad you mentioned Joan's on Third. Great food there, including those pickles!!!!

Eden said...

I LOVE Joan's! I tried to get a job there because i wanted to be around all that good food, ut they had no cooking positions available and I was perhaps "over qualified" to work the counter.
