Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Linner, Dinner, Snack

Saturday was a food fest. I started the morning by making french toast topped with sautéed bananas. The phone rang and I met Kristin for coffee and a croissant for brunch. Then Denny (as in Denise) came by and we went to Divine Design to benefit Project Angel Food. I bought holiday gifts, L.A. Eyeworks glasses and a skirt for myself.

Denny was craving The Counter, so we shared a chocolate malt shake, french fries/fried onion, mini hamburgers. The mini hamburgers were about the size of a half dollar, two inches thick. So cute! We sat at the counter as I started the Saturday crossword puzzle. Denny tapped on my arm and whispered, "Doesn't that look like Owen Wilson?" I craned my neck and there was an unshaven guy in a brown/rainbow ski vest. I whispered back, "It's because it is Owen." We waited for him to come sit next to the empty seat next to Denny, but alas, some other guy did.

Denny dropped me off at Maki & Jen's and we carpooled to Rowe Traver's birthday BBQ. In retrospect, it delivered beyond Rowe's modest invite:

Saturday, December 4th
Herman Travers will rise like a Phoenix, head into his closet to grab a sweat suit, put his headband on, then crank up the Earth, Wind & Fire Greatest Hits CD before he fires up the grill. Yes folks, it's time for another Travers Family Barbecue in Whittier, California. Dad is very proud of his marinade and grillin' style and he loves to show off.

There was more meat there than I've seen in the last four years. We ate and ate then sat by the fire pit. Just as our stomachs were settling, Rowe's parents sang happy birthday (and we jumped in) and brought out desserts: Peach Cobbler, German Chocolate Cake, Carrot Cake.

We had dessert and sat back down around the fire. And before we were able to leave Rowe's parents, we were given to go containers. It was one good time with the very special Rowe and her amazing parents.

We finally got back to L.A. at about nine and I met Gregg for pizza before coming home for a bite of cobbler to end my day.

That's one heck of an eating marathon.

Areth, eating well sucks for my waistline, but who's complaining.

i could definitely get used to eating six times a day. the portions are much smaller, you have more variety, more chances to sit back and socialize, whats not to like?

i'm at two right now-no time for breakfast :(
