Farmer and the cook/Ojai and Tallyrand/Burbank


beautiful downtown ojaiThese two restaurants could not be more different but we enjoyed both. Farmer and the Cook is a vegetarian hippie dippie outpost in Ojai, a laid back town about 1.5 hours northwest of LA where we had a hip version of huevos rancheros. At the Tallyrand restaurant, a 1959 institution in Burbank, we had a fresh roasted turkey sandwich slathered with yellow gravy, served with all the fixins — mashed potatoes, dressing and homemade cranberry sauce.

On Saturday night! we had very good takeout from Seoul Korean BBQ in downtown Burbank. Needless to say, we are sad to be leaving LA and our adorable 21 month old niece, my brother and sister in law. On yet another glorious day — sun, breeze, blah, blah, blah —  we walked over to the Rancheros neighborhood where people actually board horses in their backyards (and ride down city streets to nearby Griffith Park) and found a perfect playground where my niece quickly mastered the toddler slide!
