Heat and Fun

This past weekend has been very HOT. On the news, it was record breaking 100 deg in L.A.
but that did not stop us from having a fun weekend. The boys went swimming at my brother's and had a blast. For movie night we saw Raiders of the Lost Ark. J.T liked it.

Jinky and I met at Hedda's for a girls night out

We met Sharon and Karen.
It was nice to finally see our pregnant
friend Sharon.
We went to a nice dinner at
This restaurant is so small and private.
It is A Moroccan Cuisine
We feasted on their "Tasting Menu"
with 8 yummy different courses
Tagine Platter
yummy hummus, olives,eggplant and beets
then chopped salad with feta cheese

Baked Salmon stacked with persian figs
and couscous.
There is a yummy pastry on the side that I cannot remember.

pastry of saffron chicken, almond, powdered sugar and cinnamon.

Fried white fish with cauliflower

More food came and I did not take any more pictures.
The last course was a rack of lamb, of which I am not a fan.
It was good though, and did not have the gameyness odor.

Then the Baklava and strawberries with a candle for Hedda's Birthday.
This was served with a Moroccan Mint tea, which my friends said
was very good and a nice way to end a " yummy 8 course meal".
We were expecting to see some celebs, but not even one of the owners Ryan Gosling
was there. We don't know maybe there were celebs and
we didn't notice. We were too busy chatting
eating and laughing.

After dinner we were planning to go to
Sweet Lady Jane
on Melrose,
but someone had a bad fall outside the restaurant
and we helped the man for awhile who had a bad cut.
Jinky tried calling 9-1-1 and she was put on hold for awhile.
Can you believe that? Is it because we're in L.A or the heat?
They said BOTH!
Anyway, 5 minutes later, and both Jinky and another man
were able to get thru and the firemen and paramedics came.

We skipped Sweet Lady Jane and went to
The Grove to catch
the last show time for the
SATC Movie


We had all seen the movie except for Jinky and
she was pretty excited. So are we!

We are always grateful for our dear husbands
and boyfriends. Or as what Carrie Bradshaw said "Manfriend"
for letting us have a fun girls night out. I was so tired we stayed up til 230am.
And I still made it to Church at 9am.
