Summer's End

Someone else's summers looked like this.

Lucky all of you.

Could it be they were the best moments of the year?

 (Posie Gets Cosy these last two pics)

Well some of the year's best, surely.

When you really think about it

 (These last two: Junkaholique)

It's all about sunshine, the tastes of sunshine

And those little moments of perfection.  Thanks to all for sharing theirs.

Night and Market Song - Between Echo Park and Silver Lake

Hungry?  We've got you covered.

Night and Market Song.  Solid, sweet, super fresh, chili-spiked

Thai soul food.

Hot, hot ambiance.

It is likely to expand your gastronomic horizons.

At least by your second visit - which is more or less guaranteed!

Happy Weekend!

I Did Leave the House With My Camera This Summer. A Time or Two

To adventure far-ish afield

to los Jardines de Senor Fish

to Little Tokyo

 (it's actually the "Far Bar" now, though I haven't been in)

cuz  Ebisu is my favorite for cold Sapporo mugs, noodles, tempura, tofu and-and.........all so yummy.

to 'Lette for macarons.....

For a little neighborhood gleaning.

And then, home again.  Where the heart is.  That's been my L.A. summer on not-quite-film!

Time to Make the Sriracha!

It's that time of the year again.  

Things are heating up at the Huy Fong Factory in Irwindale.  It's all good!

Mmmmmmm Mmmmmmmm

No shortage of sunshine in L.A. this summer.

I've been using lots of citrus zest to make salads special

Squash blossoms from my Lebanese-Armenian grocery store:  cheap, beautiful and fresh!
(SuperKing I love you!)

We put them on our De Sano neapolitan pizzas after (another!) Home Depot run.

What are you going to eat this weekend?

Otherwise Occupied

Here's a little

of what else

is keeping me away

from the blog.  I have a painting commission

that I'm supposed to complete in September.  Wish me luck!
