I went to Chicago for the first time recently! It was a quick trip. I mean, quickity quick quick. Arrived on Friday late afternoon for the opening night screening of “Go Back to China” at FAAAIM. Then left the next morning just in time to celebrate my 16th wedding anniversary back with my husband Abe in LA. I did squeeze in a quick morning walk to play tourist, though.
Speaking of celebrations, I recently threw a little dinner party in honor of Abe’s birthday. Drake on Cake!
I made “The Stew” - Alison Roman’s viral Coconut Chickpea Turmeric concoction. I’ve been meaning to make it for months, since I read about it in the NY Times.
Here’s a video of me cooking it. It’s been forever since I cooked, let alone filmed myself doing it.
Next up is a lot more travel - I’ll be going to San Diego this weekend, followed by Bentonville, AR and San Francisco for more “Go Back to China” film festivals. And we also have an LA Premiere as the Centerpiece Film at LAAPFF on May 4th - tickets just went on sale. I hope to see you there!
