This week in Production Eats

I've been asked many times how an I able to work, cook, blog and still do other things. Well, sorry to disappoint anyone, but there's no secret or magic power or voodoo that I do. Whoa...that last part rhymed. I feel fortunate in what I do because I'm able to work on-set and from home. On days when I am on-set, I don't cook as the long hours sometimes takes a lot out of me. All other days, I cook and/or bake, while taking care of other business. Give or take. Unless I'm working on a big production that requires my full attention for a certain amount of time, then that would be a whole other thing altogether.  But aside from that, you would find me in the kitchen cooking up something delicious with my little pocket notebook off to the side in case I have a story idea that may come up. The kitchen is my second office, if you haven't guessed yet. Once in a long while, I'll eat out and have a lazy day. It's just very much like a big balancing act. It's a bit of a struggle at times, but I love it. I really do. I say that in the most honest and sincere way that I can. So, there you go. That's the short version.  

With that said, I give you this week's production eats. This week I worked on the comedy The Big Bang Theory. It's a show on CBS on Monday nights. It's interesting as this is the first sitcom I've worked on. It's a live audience taping, so we really didn't shoot anything until probably 8pm. But I was there all day in wardrobe. It was a bit odd, but really fun. My call time was right before lunch so a meal was served. I was partially starving as I barely had a piece of toast that morning.

 The first meal were just some simple carne asada tacos. I piled on the lettuce, tomato, avocado and sour cream into the flour tortillas rather than meat because I knew they be giving us another meal later. Take the veggies now is what I say. I like it. It's been a while since I've had myself some tacos.  It was pretty good. Along with a lovely slices of German chocolate cake. It was either that or carrot cake. There's no choosing with me. Chocolate wins hands down! Boo-yah!!

For lunch (dinner), we had eaten at the Warner Brother Studios Commissary. I ordered myself some fresh fish and chips. Cooked to order. Deep-fried, but oh-so-tender cod. The fries were cooked just right. Not too soggy with a nice crisp to it. They served with a side of tartare sauce.

From the salad bar, I put together some mixed greens with fresh mushroom with a good drizzle honey mustard dressing.  For dessert was a gigantic brownie. How big? It was bigger than the size of my fist. Yeah, it was that big. I saved that, took it home and ate it for breakfast the next day.
