A new “favorites” series might be the answer for weeks where I don’t have it together to photograph most things. Weeks like this week, where terrible bedtime choices rendered me unable to do anything productive outside of 9-5.
I had a ton of fun and I ate a lot of things (all of the things!), and now I’ll share my five favorites with you guys…
1: Pineapple Noosa with multi-colored grapes.
This new flavor was lovely. P.S. I also snagged a Target-exclusive, pumpkin Noosa that I am quite excited about.
2: Salads from Chipotle.
Actually, I made Adam get Chipotle with me two nights in a row, so this actually may be more of an addiction than a favorite.
Lettuce / pinto beans / grilled veggies / chicken / cheese / sour cream / corn salsa / mild salsa. Plus the ridiculously delicious, lime-y, salty chips.
3: Shredded chicken Bahn Mi and Thai tea with boba from Bahnmigos.
I went to a stand-up show with a friend on Wednesday so I *had* to get dinner in Brooklyn. These guys make the best Bahn Mi; they have the perfect balance of flavors and ingredients (spicy Sriracha and tangy pickled veggies, crunchy baguette and silky mayo). That’s Mindy Kaling’s memoir in the background. It was also fabulous.
4: Brown sugar seaweed snack with TJ’s turkey jerky.
Another good balance of salty to sweet. This was a nice mid-afternoon snack.
5: Amazing flavors from Chinatown Ice Cream Factory.
Adam and I split Thai tea and black sesame. This was the husband’s first visit but now he is as obsessed as I am. The flavors are so true to life!
Bonus: These hard candies are still rocking my world.
If I had known how good they were going to be I would have bought multiple bags. I still can’t decide what flavor they are though, because there is a lot of coffee roast for creme brulee.
Note: my favorite meal of the week was technically a romantic (poorly lit) dinner at Freeman’s. We shared Coho salmon with mustard sauce and five cheese mac and cheese. Plus chamomile infused scotch with grapefruit and honey. swoon
