We love our local one Station #92 on Pico and Prosser but the Beverly Hills station pulls out all the stops!
From 1pm to 4 pm the Beverly Hills station will have live fire demonstrations, fire engine rides, educational programs, displays, and a special visit from the one-and-only Sparky the Fire Dog! Complimentary hot dogs and refreshments will be served by the Beverly Hills firefighters. The event will be held at the Civic Center Headquarters Fire Station.
I went to the Grand Opening of Sprouts and it was CRAZY busy but super efficient. I could have gone crazy there but didn’t…walked out buying just what I needed for $33. Here are some of my favorite things:
I am LOVING Pamela Salzman’s food lately. I made her version of her Butternut Squash and Chickpea Stew, not too different from my Hearty Chicken Stew I love; but this had a more of a Moroccan feel to it. I baked some chicken while this was cooking and voila, I had two meals in one. One vegetarian and one not (for hubby). Enjoy the recipe.
