….and we witnessed it! But first, does it really take one blonde and two brunettes to figure out a parking meter? Apparently so!
You all know how much I love ‘Recess Eatery’ on Brand Blvd. I’ve long admired how Chef Sevan Abdessian built the restaurant slowly and wisely and always deliciously! His lifelong dream of another amazing restaurant that would fully incorporate his vision took two and a half years to come to fruition and we were thrilled to be at the dedication of RECESS in Highland Park on York Blvd. This veteran of the culinary world brings us total East-side organic, gourmet food. Here’s my gals, Lisa Nikka and Amy!
The bar was amazing and it was fascinating to watch the various drinks that were created!
I love Noami, Chef Sevan’s mother. She’s an amazing woman & it’s no surprise that she produced such a creative and visionary son.
We were all so inspired to hear Sevan at the ribbon cutting ceremony…..
O.K., I know, get to the food!
Braised short ribs, horseradish pomme puree, braised kale, romesco
Confit tomatoes, burrata, prosciutto, avocado, recess garden basil, balsamic essence, parmesan crisp
Yummyness on a stick!
You know you want it!
CONGRATULATIONS CHEF! I’m soooo proud of you!
Back to the real world and our sweet puppy who flew out of Trudy’s grasp in the park and killed a poor, innocent SKUNK! This was 7:00 A.M. when Trudy came into the bedroom & asked if I could go outside…….
Dear Liz from ‘Must Love Dogs’ Mobil Grooming came by at 6:30 after working hard all day and gave Kita a double de-skunking bath.
Don’t give me that look…..
Nikka felt so sorry for puppy she stopped and got her a toy which was destroyed faster than the skunk!
The new Landscape series in the studio was wonderful. Joseph T. brought a magnificent Brush Stand he made and we all went crazy over it. Interested? Ask me for a price quote.
I was delighted that everyone learned a lot…...
Dear Lisa came over and we tried to take a Selfie….need a lot more practice but it was fun!
Oh no…not the plumber again! Kita was happy about this…..
What fun making Diane a true Espresso in the Nespresso machine and serving it in a proper British espresso cup!
Time to paint Camelias……..
May you have beautiful days kissed by the sun…….
……and be sure to see all the lovely Camelias in bloom now!
