May ur stuffing b tasty
May ur turkey plump,

May ur potatoes & gravy
Have never a lump.

May ur yams b delicious
& ur pies take da prize,

& may ur Thnksgiving dinner
Stay off ur thighs!

Hey, Bacon!

The moon like:

mischievous bacon

crisps its desire


I harbor myself

toward two eggs

over easy.

One of the prettiest places in Los Angeles – The Arboretum

Though the food may not capture your heart at the Peacock Cafe

the beauty just may…

Clifton’s Cafeteria

At Clifton’s Cafeteria magic might not be in the food (okay, I gotta admit, there’s a bit of it in the desserts), however, what most delights is childhood memories and the woodland kitschy setting.

..and served at The Griddle Cafe.

“Red Velvet” panCAKE – swirls and swirls… “The Golden Ticket” – for the dreamers of dreams…

Okay… it’s an indulgence. But hey, I worked hard this week 🙂

Yelp Reviews

Update 07Feb11:  btw, a friend recently asked what the subject line “lassoed the moon and the stars” had to do with pancakes.  Well… nothing really.

But it is about perfect moments. Perfect moments with friends…
