Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Parmesan Kale

Sometimes after I finish working out at the gym, I’ll eat out rather than eat at home. Tender Greens is just down Sunset Boulevard from the gym and on the way home for me.

This was some time ago. The buttermilk fried chicken was good, but the thinness of the crust prevents me from proclaiming it great.

Kale and Parmesan complement one another well. It’s upscale cafeteria food and I would go more often were it not so dark inside.

I haven’t updated this blog in ages. I have been writing, at least.

In late May I had a job interview which went well as I got that job. After the interview I went to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, which was nearby. 

The cafeteria has good food! This pork cutlet, served with polenta, fried rice (double order of carbs, I know. I was the first customer and I was too hungry to wait for their vegetables to be cooked. There were peas and carrots in the rice) and a lemon butter sauce was the best cafeteria meal I’ve had in many many moons. 

I barely touched the rice, but I devoured the crispy cutlet and the creamy polenta.

The LACMA has a surprisingly good collection. I’d never heard much about it prior, but having visited the place I would highly recommend it. 

What compelled me to go, other than my love of museums was this piece from ancient Bactria, in what is now Afghanistan.

It is 3,500 to 4,000 years old.

There’s a small but interesting collection of antiquities. The impressionist collection is impressive.
