Then today, it was off to Clio's for lunch. Clio is by far the best cook I know - she just "throws" things together and they are delicious. She has her sister in law Korisa and Korisa's 9-month-old baby Bella staying with her so it was a little girlie get together.
Clio made a delicious omelet, lemonade and an orange, vanilla cake with orange blossom syrup - aghhhh SOOOOOOO yummy!!
While I was at Clio's I was also lucky enough to get a mail from none other than Barrie Osborne with a recommendation letter attached! I had asked him for one last week but had not heard back so thought that was that but low and behold there it was! I am so chuffed!

Helens boyfriend Viet lives in Burbank so we met at his place and then walked over to IKEA where I saw this gem in a window...
and started our day with a hearty 99c breakfast of Swedish pancakes with elderberry sauce (or as Helen called is Legoberry!) - YUM!
Sadly they did not have the curtains Helen wanted, but I scored well in the candle department (being the good friend Helen is, she talked me out of purchasing a throne for Little Pig that I was convinced I needed)!
We went to the Larchmont Bungalow (out regular hang out) and were fortunate enough to meet one of the cooks there who I jokingly pretended to be disgruntled with over the fact that they never have a vegetarian soup option. He then said, "well what do you want?" to which I said "tomato soup". Low and behold about 15 minutes later 3 large bowls (and by large bowls I can only describe as "buckets") arrived with the most delicious tomato soup!
People kept passing on the street and asking what it was and wanted to order it but were denied (he he he). He then tried to send out free dessert but we were already having a tough time getting up off the bench so politely declined and walked over to Chevalier Books.
Little Pig got his treats (which looked suspiciously like human cookies - so much so that Norman who works there thought they were and helped himself to some??!!). Speaking of Norman, he has what looks to be an AWESOME one-man show coming up on February 25th - 28th at the Noho Arts Center (becomingnorman.tix.com). Anyhow we completely lost track of time so what was originally going to lead to a trip to Target soon became a hightail back home so that Sabrina could go do some volunteer work!
