The Weekend Dish


by Lydia Ellison

T.G.I.F! The fact that it is Friday is making the heat wave in LA a little more bearable.


I had a small dinner party last night, it was about 98 degrees at 7pm yesterday so I served a cold meal…

heirloom tomato gazpacho with crumbled feta

spinach salad with spiced beef fillet, cherry tomatoes and feta with a Dijon vinaigrette

Babycakes cookie sandwich

my guests brought homemade vegan, gluten free ice cream sandwiches from the Baby Cakes Cookbook which was the perfect dessert to beat the heat!


Baggu Bags has new colors and styles, check em out!! These are our favorite reusable grocery sacs, can’t recommend them highly enough. Sarah used them last year as the Welcome Bags which greeted her wedding guests when they entered their hotel room.

The stripped Baggu Bag reminds me of my favorite wardrobe staple, the Breton striped shirt. Like my glassware collection the long sleeve striped shirt is another item Drew says “another one? You have 5 of those!”


I’m not the only one. Happy Weekend y’all!
