Monday blog love

Happy Monday to everyone!

Hope you all had a lovely long holiday weekend!

We saw two foreign movies, "Nora's Will" (the original Mexican title is "Cinco Dias Sin Nora" - Five days without Nora) and "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest" (original Swedish title "Luftslottet som sprängdes" - literal translation: "the air castle that blew". As in "castles in the air"??? How'd that become a hornet's nest? Too funny.), the third installment in the trilogy of movies, from Stieg Larrson's books. Both movies were very good!

(I don't know why the video isn't loading???!
You can watch it here on YouTube.)

And we ate a lot of good food out ... one of the places we went is the new Culver City location for one of our favorite vegan restaurants, Native Foods. Their regular customers were invited for free lunch or dinner over the weekend, before it officially opens today to the public. We were allowed to have whatever we wanted and dessert too. (I had the Wasabi Bean Burger, the veggie soup and a chocolate cupcake - the hubs had the Reuben, save-the-chicken wings and pumpkin cheesecake. YUM!) They even added our "free" lunches onto our frequent customer cards - our lunch for the two of us was forty five smackers for FREE. And the place was nearly full when we were leaving and look at how full it got later in the day (in the video) so my gosh, what an enormous gift Tanya gave to her customers, huh?! Thank you thank you thank you Tanya!

  1. Thanks for the movie tips...bythe way I love the pic (is that you) with someone reading a book cuddle with the dog on your cozy. I just posted today (finally) and be warned, it is about the Harry POtter series, but I simply can't wait to see it Friday. Have a great week dear Sally.

  2. Hey Sally,
    Sounds like you had a busy weekend. The vegan restaurant sounds good. My son is a vegetarian , so we love those kind of places. Thanks for asking about my Dad-he's much better and back at home now. Hope you have a great week!

  3. Hi Jenny!
    So good to see you! Yup! That's me and my oggie doggie reading a good book. ;) And further down, that's me with my Cocker Spaniel and also my other beloved doggies.
    We cannot wait for the latest Harry movie - we've bought our tickets for Saturday - I so wanted to go on Friday but it's hubby's last day before his Thanksgiving break. WAH! I will come over and visit you later tonight or tomorrow.
    Happy Harry and have a wonderful week!

  4. Hi Leslie!
    Yup, we were running around for three days and then pooped out on Sunday - well, we did go out to breakfast on Sunday but I started getting a migraine at the restaurant. ARGH! So that ended the fun for Sunday. boo hoo.
    Do they have vegetarian options on campus for your son? I know UCLA has quite a few these days - I seem to think that I read that Native Foods offers something there??? I hope your son is adjusting and doing well away at college!
    I'm so glad to hear your dad is so much improved and has been able to return home, that's wonderful news. (my dad will be 92 in a week!)
    Happy week to you!
