Here's the Ivy doll and Ivy on the TV show. Can you spot her?
Ivy was also on television when she first debuted. Only, she wasn't with any of the Simpsons, instead Ivy was with Oprah! . . .
But enough about television, let's talk food. My agent, Jodi Reamer, was in town recently. We didn't have time to go to Disneyland, however she did take Dan Santat and me out to dinner. However, just like the last time the three of dined together, Mr. Santat did not wear pants.
Dan was being a prima donna and insisted that we feed him . . .
Things were going well, until he insisted that Jodi try the grilled fish. She developed an immediate aversion to it, claiming it looked like chicken . . .
And if that weren't enough drama, Dan then passed out. Yes, right there on the table . . .
As you might have guessed, I like to eat. Although not stuff like this . . .
My favorite meal of the day, other than dinner, is lunch. (I love breakfast, but an never up in time for it.) Being an author, lunch is an important part of the writing process. Why? Because.
Not too long ago, I had lunch (smoked salmon on sour dough with onions and cream cheese) with YA author/poet/race track bettor, Ron Koertge. He had soup.
On another day, I had lunch with animators/illustrators/writers James Burks and Bob Boyle . . .
They had pizza. I had a salad with avocado, mushrooms, onions, sunflower seeds and feta cheese . . .
Then, there was another time when Dan and I decided to do this new thing, where we try new places. In the past, we usually went to Pho 79 for lunch . . .
Our first new place was Chico's in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles . . .
Look who else was there! Greg Pincus, author/poet/social media expert . . .
Greg had the fish stew and it was delicious. I know. I made him give me some. I had the verde pork and hominy soup. It was scrumptious . . .
Dan had the carnitas platter . . .
The most awesome soda store was nearby. Galco's.
Dan had never been there before, and we both had TONS of work that needed to be done. So, naturally, we had to stop and shop . . .
Here's what I bought!!!
