Day in Malibu

Quick post on yesterday as we had a full day in Malibu starting at 7AM and ending the day at 5PM.  Lots of adventures with great friends by the beach and in the canyons.  L.A. offers such a variety of things to see and explore which is why so many of us live here, but Malibu has it's own culture.  People run into friends on daily errands and coffee breaks.  There is a more relaxed attitude here. 

At one point we needed to make a stop at a restroom and we walked threw the camp grounds at Malibu State Park.  No one there except the fallen leaves of autumn and me and Heather traipsing in our sandals to the restroom.  After we made sure that there were no creatures lurking in the restroom we ran in and out as quickly as possible.

 Zuma beach was lovely.

Malibu Kitchen for quick breakfast.

 I guess we need to be Bob's friend if we want to park here.

 Clouds were amazing this day.

Canyon's were so quiet and beautiful.

Take a ride thru Malibu Canyon and Enjoy!

New song I'm kind of obsessed with, and well it's the kind of word that describes my week:

Perhaps you like a few other Mad related songs:

How about the remake of the above song:

Or how bout a little Prince Buster:

Oh, I could go on and on.  Anyone else have some goodies?

Milo & Olive

Milo and Olive, a neighborhood bakery and pizzeria, opened almost a year ago in November 2011. I've been hearing great local buzz about this place and have passed it many times on Wilshire Blvd in Santa Monica. It's run by the team of Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan who are also behind 
Rustic Canyon, Huckleberry and Sweet Rose Creamery
The menu includes fresh baked morning pastries and bread, wood fired pizzas, farmers market inspired salads and small plates in a hip and warm environment.  

Seats are readily available in the morning at the counter. This is always a fun place to sit and watch the tattooed cooks. I like to guess what they are making. At lunch, counter and communal tables are available. The pastries in front look mouth watering.  First trip there I had a latte, eggs and bacon (a no carb day), so I'll have to go back to try what looked like the best sticky pecan roll ever.

Simple exterior

Cool simple interior.  I like the no fuss.

Next time round I shared a lovely fresh salad and a few pizzas. The crust was divine, and I'm a huge mushroom fan, so this, with the melted fontina cheese, was delish.

Prosciutto, Burrata, Arugula mouth watering.

These desserts were entering the room while we ate our lunch, I was dying.

Zoe Nathan has stated that she's using different grains to enrich the flavor of her breads.  Well if this is any indication, it's working.  It's a cornmeal cake with a blueberry jam, topped with a vanilla bean cream cheese frosting and fresh farmer market blueberries, your going to die happy.

Please stop by and visit this place, you'll not be disappointed.  Enjoy!
