After popping all those Benadryl… I can finally breath on my own and am not sneezing and coughing and blowing my nose every five seconds.

We woke up to Potomac, Maryland sun shining through the skylights and warmer temperatures. Mikes son had a friend over, so we woke up and made some breakfast… I had a craving for French Toast(but didn’t eat). I instead I cut up some Oranges and ate those with a little Persian Bread and a small Cube of Fete Cheese. I know not good!!!!

We relaxed a little bit and got our bags unpacked and made piles for laundry… and decided to go out and explore some of the Washington D.C. area. Mike had been craving Shishkabobs for a long time, so we went to a local place called Moby Dicks for his food. There I had a Green Salad and some Roasted Onions, and Tomatoes. Mike ordered a dish which his mother made in California.. the Vegetable Stew(Ashareshde) and it was nothing like Mike’s moms dish. We had some flat bread and enjoyed the meal.

It was nearing nearing sundown, so Mike brought out the candles and after lighting one at a time, we read the story of Chanukah. It’s an amazing story of miracles!!!!!

Woke up with a stuffed up nose and fealing lathargic…. spent the whole day in house taking vitamin c and sleeping.
It wasn’t such a bad thing though, the weather in California was overcast.
After some lunch of Homemade Noodle Soup I felt better… but dinner is another story.

I made a Green Salad with Romaine Lettuce, Small Cucumbers, Tomatoes and some Orange Bell Peppers Mike got from the .99 cent store. I also ate some left over Vegetable Stew.. and I’m not feeling too good. I hope the Peppers weren’t bad!!!!

Tomorrow we push off for our journey back to the east coast… so I hope my tummy gets better!!!!

Dinner @ CPK After Nutcracker

One End of Table

Nutcracker Post Production

Me w/Snow Ferry-Mike's Niece

Nutcracker Production

Cast Taking Bows

We didn’t eat much Saturaday, I did however drink a bit more than usual! So we were, needless to say, hungry.

At 10:30 Sunday Morning, we had some of Mike’s moms Vegetable Stew(Asha Reshde) in Persian. That stuff, no matter how many days later, is still unbelievably fantastic.!!! So that carried us through our performance of the Nutcracker. I’ve never seen a production of the Nutcracker, so it was great to see one of Mike’s nieces in a production of the famous holiday production.

For dinner, we all met up at the California Pizza Kitchen. I ordered, for the first time a Vegetable Pizza without the Cheese!!! And they had no problem making it for me. Plus, I had a Chinese Chicken Salad without the Chicken.

I have been slacking on the Juice though!!!! Can’t seem to remember drinking the Carrot Juice I bought at Costco… Will have to work on that!!!

Braving Cold

Saturday we decided to take a drive to San Diego with Mike’s cousins. We woke up early at 6AM, and started getting ready. I had planned on wearing my SKINNY JEANS I bought in Colorado and was pleasantly surprised when they fit.

Yeah!!!! I was on cloud 9 all day and I looked hot in my jeans. So I got a little crazy and drank a Marguarita with lunch, and two Bombay & Tonics later on and Montage Hotel Restaurant Studio.

But before we even got there, on the way down the 5 we stopped at a park and had a picnic of breakfast foods. I tried Mike’s cousins Bean Stew. It was like Mike’s moms Vegetable Stew!! Yum Yum!.. Then I also ate really well with a Salad, Couscous, and Beets.

LA Car Show

New Lincoln

LA Car Show

New Lexus

Friday Morning we got up with plans to hit the first day of the Los Angeles car show. We walked through Ford, Lincoln, Lexus, Mercedes, BMW, and Honda.

That was just one building of cars…. we still had three more showrooms to go!!! It was a whirlwind of chrome, muscle, flash and innovation and spent hours looking, sitting and oowing and ahhing.

We saved ourselves for Mike’s moms home cooking and ended up eating her Vegetable Stew again!!!! That stuff is sooooo good. I got the recipe and will be making it myself.!

For dinner we had Mike’s sister and daughter come over and they made a Rice, Raisin meal which was great.!

At 9AM this morning, we had a meeting with our real estate agent here in Santa Monica, and I got up later than I anticipated so I didn’t have time for a workout. But instead we rushed over the Fairmont Hotel to me Petra. When we got there, she was waiting for us on the sidewalk in front of the Fig Restaurant entrance. It was great to see her, we had been e-mailing back and forth about properties this year, but it was still nice to meet face to face with her.

It so happens, Petra is from Hungary(she was born there, I’m 1st generation American/Hungarian born in the U.S.) and it’s nice to meet up with people from my nationality. It’s not often I get to do so, so it’s nice when it happens. Plus, Petra is very pleasant and I found out this morning she also just recently went Raw too. After several days of people questioning my position to not eat meat, it was a relief to find someone who’s been getting the same flack from everyone too. Petra’s been getting flack from her mother, friends, and other family members for her decision, but like me, she agrees it just feels good to Eat Raw! She exclaims she has more energy then before and she just feels better, physically and mentally. And I agree with her on all those points. So why can’t everyone else see that and just be happy and try it for themselves.????

After we parted ways with Petra, Mike and I continued to do some running around until 1 in the afternoon… And by that time, I was famished. We raced home to eat a special dish Mike’s mom cooked for us yesterday. It’s a Vegetable based stew with Noodles… Mike actually made the same thing for me once in Florida, but this was 100 times better. While we were out, we stopped into Costco, where I picked up some Whole Grain Wheat Bread to go along with this afternoons dish. Perfect pairing!!!

But now, as we sit around the house visiting with Mike’s other sister and waiting for his brother to stop by, I can feel the bread weighing on my stomach. Tonight after dinner, will be reason for another walk around Santa Monica. Speaking of dinner, I hope we have some more of the Vegetable Stew…. or we could have left overs from other meals we’ve have this week already. Mike’s mom is keeping us in suspense.!!!
