Eating Out


Some people spend their money on fancy clothes and illustrious possessions. The Cute Gardener and I spend our money eating out, at least once a week, and mostly in the never-ending culinary landscape of Los Angeles. But we travel too, and when we do, we eat out a lot in other areas as well. I hope you enjoy our forays here into the restaurant world. I will never blow praise up a restaurant’s flue for a meal. I call it like I see it and hope you appreciate that fact too.
