Random Thoughts- Debate, Farmer's Markets, Zane's Hermosa Beach...

So yeah- that's a pretty random title, I know. I'm pretty excited for the debate tonight....it's rare that an event like this holds so much entertainment value but if it's anything like Palin's recent interviews with Katie Couric, I see many LOLs in my evening tonight! If you missed Letterman's Top 10 Things Heard at Palin Debate Camp last night, be sure to check it out. Hi-la-ri-ous!

Anyway, back to food. For any Los Angeles locals, tonight is the South Pasadena Farmer's Market which happens every Thursday. Although the debate will likely keep a lot of people home, try and check it out beforehand if you get a chance. In addition to a wonderful array of produce, there are lots of food stands (corn, pupsas, chilaquiles, etc) and stuff to do for kids. Here are some snaps I took with my cell phone camera last week:


Yummy Middle Eastern eats.........

Sweet treats......

...all served with pride and a smile!


This past weekend I found myself in Hermosa Beach, at a little Italian place called Zane's, getting cocktails with friends. I believe it used to be something else but it's now a charming little restaurant serving thin crust pizzas (which looked soooo good) and other Italian delights. Since we had made reservations elsewhere, we only had drinks but we'll be sure to try it for dinner next time. The warm, fluffy bread and trio of tapanades you see here were complimentary and delicious enough to keep us coming back.







So that's a short update for now. Anyone have plans to view the debate at a favorite bar? Do you have viewing party plans tonight? Guess it'd be pretty easy to have a Palin-themed menu for a viewing party.....salmon.....crab......Baked Alaska....whole roasted pig with lipstick...ok, I'll quit blabbing now.
