Go to the Chase Community Giving Facebook page and vote for the Humanity Fund. They have a chance to receive $250,000 to help care for thousands of homeless animals around the world. YOU HAVE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 19TH TO VOTE!

The Harmony Fund is on a singular mission to rescue the animals others deem “unreachable”. We have assembled 25 of the most effective and down-right courageous animal protection programs on the planet with the aim of bringing peace to places once absent of hope. Right now we are gearing up for winter and shoring up resources to help rescue teams take animals off the streets in some of the coldest places on earth. We would be honored to have your vote today.

Here are some pictures of adorableness to get you in the mood to vote:

I took a cooking class at Roy’s Hawaiian Restaurant in Pasadena this past weekend. I LOVE Roy’s. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. I was so excited I just kept grinning before class started. We made appetizers at this class. It was my first cooking class at Roy’s, but I’ll definitely take classes there in the future.

This is an acorn squash salad with arugula and pomegranate seeds with a pomegranate dressing. It was really good. It’s vegetarian, and if you brown the squash with olive oil instead of butter it can be vegan.

Here’s a chicken curry salad with apples and mango. I usually don’t like putting fruit with meat, but it was really good. finely diced chicken, apples, and mango, with curry mayonnaise. Yum!

Scallop ceviche. I didn’t try this because I don’t like scallops or avocado.

Here’s some shrimp lumpia (egg rolls) with bean sprouts and diced veggies. They were really good. The sous chef made a sweet and spicy chili sauce to go with them. I wish I had the recipe for that.

Here’s some of Roy’s famous short ribs. We didn’t cook these, because it takes a long time to make, but the sous chef teaching the class made some plus some steamed veggies so we could eat them for lunch along with our appetizers.

Hurray! I just bought tickets to see the Book of Mormon when it comes to Los Angeles in the Fall! This will be the second time I see it, because I saw it when I was in New York at the¬†Eugene O’Neill Theater. I had a big stupid grin on my face the entire time. This time I’m going with my husband, I hope he likes it as much as I do!

I got one of my presents early this year! Appelina and her man JB got me my very own coffee dripper! I’ve already used it three times. It’s very pretty.


And do you know what makes a great cup of coffee even better? Peppermint Mocha Kahlua! Hurray!
