MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JULY 30–AUGUST 5, 2018! (YAKINIKU GRILLING, COOKBOOK SHOOT, SAND DOGS)

A week revolving around food—cooking and grilling at home and shooting the first recipes for a recent cookbook collaboration project. Enjoy!

Untitled
I inherited Frida over the weekend before and brought her to work with me on Monday.

Untitled
Untitled
Running the trail slash roads around the Getty Center. It’s my new favorite because I can be at work early for good parking, and also see deer sometimes…plus play Pokemon Go as I run. A hero’s move.

Untitled
No meetings day, ultra casual.

Home to Zach whipping up one of his favorites—fajitas.

Tuesday, towel shot baby.

One of those days where I was exhausted and accidentally took the shuttle to the wrong parking lot and then had to get back on the bus to the right lot but was alone in my journey.

Japanese grill night

Untitled
The oil was splashing on me, sometimes you need a splash guard.

I wear these pants too much

Untitled
Grilled cheese and tomato soup, the ideal lunch combo if you have to eat at the cafe.

Untitled
Zach is out of town so I’m on chore duty now

Untitled

Friday night to myself, I whipped up some hot wings…for one.

Had a good Tweedy cuddle

And woke up with him by my side

Made it home! I stopped at the Korean market on the way home. Kiki is back after two weeks away from work and I wanted to welcome her home with some grill.

Untitled
Untitled
Had some relax time with Degrassi Season 1 (yessss) and my puzzle that won’t ever end

Grilling with Tristan, Justin, Kiki and Ders into the evening on Saturday.

Untitled
Sunday morning, we decided to go back to the dog beach this time with Peanut too!

Untitled
I saw some improvement in Tweedy’s skin and since we came here the weekend before I thought maybe it had to do with the salt water when I forced him to swim…so…let’s try again.

Untitled

We started with some beach lounging

Then I took both Tweedy and Sufi into the water. I think Sufi truly thrives at the beach.

Untitled

Untitled
I don’t know if it is the time of year or the heat wave we’ve been in, but the water actually feels GREAT. I never like getting in the ocean, especially because it’s so cloudy and dark and scary…but also because it’s so cold normally. BUT I went in the water for like an hour, it was the best.

This mirror found its way onto the sidewalk. It’s a good mirror. Makes for an atmospheric passage whenever I walk the dogs past it. Hello mirror. Goodnight mirror.

  1. I love that you hold your chopsticks the Asian (read: correct) way! Haha, just something I noticed in the pic of you cooking spam. I always noticed that many Americans tend to hold their chopsticks in a different (read: wrong) way. 😛
