Food Dreams.

I don’t have any pictures for this post.  You’ll see why in just a second.

It happened.

I started daydreaming about food.  What would I eat if I was back in Los Angeles?

Melissa’s Food Dreams Tour.

I don’t have pictures of these – because I no longer live in the city of Angels.

(HINT, HINT: Friends, Send me your pictures of the below dishes and I will add to my post! Show some love!)
