Breakfast Project

I was afforded a great opportunity recently.  I got to enjoy a wonderful breakfast with Chef Ellie Krieger at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in Beverly Hills and then see the unveiling of the latest Got Milk poster with Salma Hayek.

During breakfast Chef Krieger reminded us about the importance of breakfast everyday and the nutritional benefits of including milk in that breakfast.  She refers to milk as “liquid sunshine” because of the amount of Vitamin D you receive.

For me she was preaching to the choir.  I have never met someone (that I haven’t given birth to) that drinks as much milk as me.  It doesn’t matter what meal, or time of day, milk will always be involved.  When I pack lunches for work, I freeze a water bottle of milk over night so that by lunch time it is defrosted enough that I have a milk slushie to go with my lunch.

During breakfast I tried a Strawberry Banana Smoothie and I have to admit it was pretty good.  I may even venture to make some with the grand twins soon (Caitlyn doesn’t like strawberry).

After our breakfast we headed up to the unveiling where there was a ton of press crowded into a tiny room and us little ol’ bloggers squeezing in where we could to get a shot.  When Salma Hayek came out it was like nothing I had ever seen before.  I have lived in “Hollywood” for 20 years and yet I am oblivious to stars.  More than once someone has had to point out someone famous to me and then I was just kinda huh ok about it.  But these press people were going crazy for poor Ms Hayek “Salma, over here, no Salma over here, Salma right her for the ladies, Salma here for the Milk Drinkers, Salma look up, Salma look down!”  It was insane.

After all the hullabaloo she told us all that she has wanted to do a Got Milk poster for a long time but could never get a response from them.  Now finally that she is playing a cat (Puss in Boots – now available on DVD) they have asked her – coincidence?  Didn’t matter, she was happy to oblige.  She has also starred in the new Got Milk commercials both in English and Spanish.

Arm in arm with Salma Hayek

I received no compensation for this post, but I did receive a lovely gift bag with milk inspired products.

  1. […] year I had the chance to meet Ms. Hayek and see the unveiling of her first Got Milk poster.  I have been an avid milk drinker for all of my life.  Honestly not for the “health” […]
