Saturday evening I worked and then headed up to the shoot location in the Bronx to serve up a very late night meal of Wild Rice and Vegetable Soup and Broccoli, Raisin, Lemon Salad (the snacks out also included some snickerdoodles and beer cheese dip). I stuck around for the rest of the night to clean up and send along breakfast for the early morning shoot: muffin cup frittatas and bagels, and some Box 'o' Joes from Dunkin Donuts. Headed towards home at 7:30am.
Got in a couple of hours of sleep before starting all over again--a little bit of shopping and lots of cooking. Then waiting to load everything up into a car to lug off to the second shoot location in Brooklyn. This was definitely the toughest night for me, still feeling like I had so much to do and going on only about 3-4 hours of sleep. I was completely grumpy and no fun to be around, so after setting everything up for the shoot, I headed home for a bit of food, rest, and a glass of wine that was desperately needed. I admit that I had nothing of my own in the kitchen and there was no way I was cooking, so I ordered myself some delivery pizza. Just what I needed to come back to the set at 2am refreshed and ready to serve that night's meal: Spring Risotto with Asparagus and Sugar Snap Peas; and a side of Pesto/Garlic Cannellini Beans. Again it was time for clean-up and prep for the morning breakfast that would be at Battery Park: Tortilla Espanola and bagels, fruit and iced coffee.
