Food Improvement

Pain Perdu at Bistro de la Gare

It happens almost the moment I land in Los Angeles: my diet improves. And by diet, I in no ways mean an eating regime in which I lose weight. I am strictly referring to the quality of food which enters my mouth. Gone are the lousy dining hall "entrees," gone are the plates of pasta with canned tomato sauce. It's all tasty home cookin' and nice restaurant meals while I'm back at home.

OJ

This morning, my dad and I went out for breakfast at Bistro de la Gare, and I got the Pain Perdu. It was real good, but admittedly, nothing to write home about (and yes, I realize that expression doesn't really work in this situation, since I'm already at home...). But, point is: the atmosphere was fancy and the food was prepared pretty-like and I loved it. Oh, and fresh OJ was a nice change from the crap that the machines at the dining halls spew out.

And the weather's pretty sweet too...

did you run into the waiters that served us last time? did they recite all of the day's specials in a cheesy french accent, twice? when do you leave? Taylor and I get back Saturday (I get back in the morning, she gets back probably around 8 at night) and I think if you, Taylor, Emily, and I can coordinate a VERY short but VERY AMAZING/EPIC spring break catch-up "sesh."
