UCLA & Food
This morning I made a second trip down to Target to pick up a few more groceries. They have small shelf meals that you can microwave and others you can add water to and then microwave so I decided to try a couple and see what I think. There is a refrigerator in each room but it is very small with almost no freezer space, so you can’t buy freezer meals to store. It has to be something that sits on a shelf and needs no refrigeration.
I also began thinking about food if I have surgery and there is a really good place that sells tasty Italian food that you can walk to, called Italian Express. They will also deliver. This is their details.
Phone 310-208-5572 http://www.italianexpressinwestwood.com They have a reasonably priced menu and my daughter fell in love with their Cheese Calzone for $6.99 and we both loved their spaghetti.
There is a Dominos Pizza Delivery in this area and you can check out their menu here http://www.dominos.com and call them locally 310-824-5000
I stopped by the hotel check in and asked if they have menus for some of the local restaurants and they handed me a packet that I will be returning to them when I am done so ask to borrow it.
You can also go to a site called www.LAbite.com which will give you all kinds of restaurants that will deliver. UCLA is in Westwood Village, so look for restaurants in that section because they will be close by the Tiverton Hotel and you should receive your food within a short space of time.
Looking through the packet they have just about everything you can think of but I know price is very important to mesh women, because our continuing costs are non-stop and we need to save money.
Ralph’s Grocery has all kind of salad bowls and soup bowls to take away and as I told you in yesterday’s blog it is very close by this hotel. If someone is going to be with you, check out the food beforehand and send them for what you would like after your surgery. At least you will know what looks tasty to you. This is the details of the store near here.
RALPHS 10861 Le Conte Los Angeles, CA 90024 Store: (310) 824-5994
You can go to their grocery store ad on line and see what they have on special. You will need the zip code 90024, and the ad site is here. http://services.ralphs.com/StoreLocator/StoreLocatorWeeklyAdSearch.aspx
There are a million types of places that you can go and eat, but I just thought I would give you a couple of ideas that may help. It is hard to think about what to eat after surgery, and a little preparation can go a long way.
This is not a lot of information but I hope this is helpful to you as you take this journey………………
