Some random eats...

...that fulfilled my hunger.Some misc eats that quenched those hunger pains and satisfied them to the fullest during by every busy schedule. I'm seriously craving to be cooking once again, yet time and life has a way of stomping it foot down and say "bwhahahaha...no cooking for YOU!" I cringe at that thought. I shall cook I tell ya...I shall. Anyway...onto the food!!

 Monte Cristo Sandwich with some onion rings from Telly's in Santa Clarita. One thing I loved about this sandwich is that the bread is fully coated in batter, kind of like french toast. Compared to some places I've had the monte cristo at, where the out layers of the bread are slathered with batter.


Two Sunday's ago my BFF and I went to brunch at the Coffeeshop 101 in the Los Feliz area. I've written about them before on this blog.

 I ordered the omelette once again. This time the fillings were spinach, cheese, muchroom, sausage and bacon. I guess I was pretty hungry. hahaha... Served with a side of hash browns and toast.

My friend orders up some pancakes. Which were pretty tasty, too. with some butter and maple syrup. Somehow there was a lone slice of strawberry underneath all that. How it got there...we don't know.


That very same day I attended a friend's grandmother's 81st birthday party. It was a Filipino gathering...so of course it was the cuisine of choice. I was still slightly full from brunch so I had myself some of the spaghetti, palabok and lumpia with chili sauce. I swear I need to go on a detox after all this eating!!!!!

My mom had accompanied me and she had more of the food there than I did. Aside from the spaghetti and lumpia there was also some herbed salmon, menudo, fried chicken, fresh fruits. 


I always forget what this is called but it's a delicious crunchy treat. It has a consistency of crackers, but it's like a cake with a mocha like filling. I need to ask my mom. Have I mentioned that I love crunchy stuff? 

This past weekend...another friend of mine invited me to a small birthday dinner for her step-daughter. I had nothing else to do since I had been working from home all day, so I figured why not. THe place of choice was at TGIFriday's. Everytime I think of TGIF, I think of the movie Office Space. hahaha...

Appetizer that was shared all around. Spinach dip with tortilla chips. I've been meaning to make some kind of spinach dip on the blog. Anyone know of a good recipe?

 I order the BBLT with a side of fries. BB = a double bacon fix W00T!! I do love my bacon! The bread felt like it was toasted a little too long. Then again what restaurant doesn't do that. I kept referring to them as croutons while eating. 


I'll end this post with a personal sized cup of haagen-dazs vanilla ice cream. Thank goodness they created the single serving cups with attached spoon, otherwise I'd devour the pint sized ones. That wouldn't be a pretty sight. :)
