Have you ever wondered what the best way is to beat the heat on a day that is plus-100 degrees? Well, NCIS: Los Angeles star Daniela Ruah has got you covered.
Fans of NCIS: Los Angeles know and love Daniela Ruah for playing NCIS Special Agent Kensi Blye. The popular CBS police series first premiered back in September of 2009, and Ruah has been there since the very beginning.
But where can we find her when she isn’t on the set of the hit show? Well, the star actress is a mother of two. Ruah welcomed a son with her husband David Olsen — the brother and stunt double of Ruah’s NCIS: Los Angeles co-star Eric Christian Olsen — back in December of 2013. His name is River Isaac Ruah Olsen. Then in September of 2016, the happy couple welcomed a second child. They have a daughter named Sierra Esther Ruah Olsen.
And it is with her kids where she was spending time earlier this week. Even on a day that reached an astonishing 107 degrees, Daniela Ruah and her kiddos were able to beat the heat with a delicious Ratatouille-themed snack.
“What do you do when it’s 107 [degrees] outside?” Ruah poses to her followers. “You make your kids stack veggies for ratatouille to keep ’em busy. First time and turned out DELICIOUS.”
Even Ruah’s co-star, Eric Christian Olsen, who plays Detective Marty Deeks on the show, stopped by the comments for good measure. Sounds like he is trying to get his brother, sister-in-law, and their family to move closer to him.
“Or just move to Malibu?” Olsen commented.
‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Star Talks Ratatouille Versus Tian
When you first see Daniela Ruah’s most recent photo, your mind definitely thinks of the 2007 Disney film, Ratatouille. You may remember that the main characters in the popular movie were Remy the rat and Linguine the human chef. And in one of the most climactic scenes of the entire movie, Remy and his animal buddies work to prepare a dish full of fresh veggies. They call it Ratatouille in the movie, and it looks an awful lot like what Ruah and her kids made.
But it turns out that the beautiful vegetarian dish scene in the movie isn’t actually called ratatouille. As a matter of fact, it’s called Tian. And the NCIS: Los Angeles star thanked those in her post who taught her the difference between the two dishes.
“PS Thank you all who taught me this is actually called a Tian, similar ingredients to Ratatouille!” Ruah said.
It’s easy to get confused over the two, however. They both share a lot of similarities — the main one being the use of summertime veggies like squash, eggplant, and tomato.
