notable snacks – –
Froyo again. Can’t stop, won’t stop.
Plain tart and Nutella yogurts with Nutella, mini peanut butter cups, chocolate-covered pretzels, and rainbow sprinkles.
We bought the new brownie batter Oreos.
Pretty good, especially when you smush two together for a double-stuffed.
Fresh mint in bubbly seltzer is delicious.
Best of all the many, many beverages we enjoyed this weekend. There were also several iced coffees that didn’t make the photos cut.
Long Island City – –
Saturday morning I picked up a very tired husband from a long shift at work,
and we finally hit up LIC Flea and Food.
We got mac and cheese and chicken empanadas.
And a Nutella gelato and macaroon ice cream sandwich from Bakeshop by Woops.
We explored LIC a bit with a walk on the waterfront.
A stop at the gorgeous newest Sweet Leaf location for an intensely creamy Vietnamese iced coffee.
And finally a flight of beers from Rockaway Brewing Co.
#2, 4, 7, & 8. We were very impressed. The cream ale was the best.
Williamsburg – –
Iced matcha on fresh watermelon juice. It was good, but not something I’m dying to go back for again.
On the other hand, lunch at Meatball Shop will be repeated very soon. I need to make an ice cream sandwich.
I got the jello shot special – Jack and Rosé.
And chicken meatballs with pesto.
They were served on an assortment of veggies – fennel, salad with apple, roasted squash, cucumber, and fresh green beans – that were tasty but literally dripping with oil.
a doggy date – –
On Sunday Webster took his first ride on the subway.
We went on a family trip to Central Park!
He was a total trooper for 3 hours of walking around the park. We cooled down with a honey iced tea,
and a double caramel Magnum bar.
And some of us had bowls of water that we stomped in and spilled all over the place.
Webster was beyond tuckered out when we got home and spent most of the rest of the day curled up in my lap!
homemade Korilla knock-off bowls – –
I made knock-off chicken and rice bowls and the husband said I did as good of a job as Korilla!
- brown rice with chopped kimchi and turkey bacon
- roasted broccoli
- quick pickled carrots and cucumber
- chicken that was marinated in Gochujang paste, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, soy sauce, and rice vinegar
- shredded cheese and a fried egg on top
So good. I am excited for the leftovers.
