To be honest my latest trip to LA wasn’t very food oriented.
I know…and no I’m not sick.
I made it a point to try a few “firsts” starting with a trip to Spitz for their unbelievable falafel. I’d walk to LA just to eat that ball of fried chickpea goodness again. Plus I got to stuff my face while meeting new people. This girl is a gem.
As for the treats (aka life as I know it,) the only planned pit stop was a visit to a bakery, and ohhh boy did I visit. Erin Mckenna’s Bakery was formerly known as Babycakes, which I had a negative experience with many moons ago. I’m not one to hold grudges, so I gave them a second chance.
This was a good move on my part.
I got chocolate all over my face with those treats, I had zero shame.
Another local discovery was a post run acai bowl, $11 worth of fruity goodness. I’m glad the bowl was good, because my interaction with the cashier was less than stellar.
“Does your granola have nuts?”
“We have gluten free oats.”
“OK, but does it have nuts?”
“It’s gluten free.”
“NUTS ARE NOT GLUTEN SHOW ME THE GRANOLA!”
I spent more time making food than I did exploring new to me places, and I was OK with that. After a trip to a California pumpkin patch (which is nothing more than a plot of land with hot sun beating on your face and pumpkins placed atop hay, sorry CA, WA has you beat here) a new recipe was created with a white pumpkin.
I also found my future tiny home, which was cool.
In all reality I didn’t eat out a lot because I spent all my money on one banana at Disneyland. It’s OK Disney, I forgive you for your overpriced produce.
I then spent 1/3 of that on a banana twice the size the very next day.
Gotta love amusement park prices. Hanger makes you do crazy things.
Q: Would you pay $2 for a small banana? I’m not proud of this.
