Treat Yo Self: A Trip to Los Angeles.

Venice Beach

Sometimes, in the middle of January, you’ve just gotta get out of Dodge.

Plane tickets are cheap this time of year and the weather in LA looked awesome, so I decided to go. It was fantastic.

It was a blitz trip, but I made the most of it. I visited with old friends. I stayed up late (and I slept in late!). I ate a lot of good food. I went to the beach and it was 80 degrees outside and I remembered exactly why people choose to live in Los Angeles.

Oh, and I did get the chance to eat dinner at Animal and it was everything I hoped it would be: it was meaty and indulgent and really, really good. (Oh, and it didn’t hurt that I was literally sitting next to Aziz Anzari. It took everything in my power not to shout “Treat Yo Self!” at him. I love him so much.)

That being said, I’ve been out of town, which means that I haven’t been in the kitchen for awhile. (I miss it!) I do have a few recipes that I plan to share in the coming weeks, but for now I’ll leave you with a few photos I took on my trip.

And last (but certainly not least), a little Tom Haverford for you all.

TREAT. YO. SELF.
