Pam Jam came down from the Bay Area and we went to the Hollywood Farmer's Market on Sunday. I picked up my usual kettle corn popcorn, Ha's apples and we both had some Thai sticky rice with banana wrapped in banana leaf. They are total works of art! We ate at the Corn Maiden tamale stand (ate the tamales too fast & forgot to photograph them!) The secret to Corn Maiden: Ask them to fully remove the husk and get extra sauce...serious yum.
Although we usually get a pupusa from the pupusa lady...this time we went for the Korean stand's yummy pancake with kim chee. Pam also got a fresh coconut!
On Monday, I met some co-workers and their family for lunch at La Dijonaise in Culver City (Helm's Bakery). Lunch was good (Note to HCG: Jambon sandwich, of course!) but dessert was wonderful. If only I could make desserts like this!!!
The prices at La Dijonaise are very reasonable and everything on the menu is great. And...since it is right next door to Surfas, I just had to go visit!
P.S. Confession. I tried to make a few baked goods but they didn't turn out...and although I took a zillion photos of the disaster, I didn't feel like posting them until I try the recipes again...and can post a success! :)
