Forage Silverlake

We’re going to start this off with a dessert photo because why not?  Dessert is my fave-town.  Forage in Silverlake displays all of their goodies right up front under a glass display.  I’m sorry but I have no resistance to dessert.  Especially when it’s all up in my face.  So I got a gooey, fresh chocolate chip cookie and a chocolate tart.  Yes, just for m’self.

But let’s go back in time (before I ordered the dessert) to set this scenario up a little better.  After the Renegade craft fair, mister boyfriend and I decided to push our Carmageddon luck a little further and drive over to Silverlake (mere minutes from downtown but across the universe from West LA) for some lunch at Forage.  Now Forage is boyfriend’s favorite so he was one happy camper.  The food was unbelievably good, so that made me a happy camper as well.

Forage changes their menu daily but you can always expect it to be fresh, seasonal, and unique.  From white bean couscous to beet, egg, and potato salad, they offer delicious combinations of all my favorite things.

I had the jidori chicken, fattoush salad (consisting of cucumber, tomato, cauliflower, radish, mint, cilantro, and pita chips), and lime creamed corn.  I don’t mess around when it comes to Saturday lunches.  Oh, and of course, I went back in line for round 2 to grab my cookie and tart.

hammer museum

This photo was taken last night at the Hammer Museum in Westwood.  See, they have the right idea about string lights!
Every Thursday evening in the month of July, Hammer is hosting a free show with our local public radio station, KCRW.  Besides the fact that I love anything free, lots of real good up-and-coming bands are playing on these nights.
Like last night for instance, boyfriend and I specifically went to the event to see a Brit band called Graffiti6.  They have become recent favorites so I was super excited to see them live and boy oh boy is their lead singer dreamy/handsome/amazing.  He’s going to be a star, I can already tell!

Anyway, what are your plans for this weekend?
We’re heading over to Silverlake to visit Broome St. General Store and eat at Forage,
finding some cheap frames for recent art prints I bought on Etsy (this one and this one),
rearranging the bedroom and moving things around a bit,
possibly visiting the beach,
and getting a visit from my cousin Kelsie.

Enjoy the sun!  By the way, what the hell happened to the week?  I completely forgot I owned and operated a blog, that’s how fast it went.
