this week I loved…
Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm. It took me forever to find a balm with both tint and spf but this one fits the bill perfectly!
A blog book review. Dawn Lerman’s My Fat Dad was sent to me free of charge to try/read for the blog. Her chapter on moving to New York City walked the reader through the different cultural food neighborhoods in a way that made my mouth water.
Living in a destination city. I had two different sets of friends visiting NYC for work trips this week. It was fantastic to get to catch up with them! However, I went out after work for dinner and/or drinks multiple times and I am flipping exhausted.
P.S. My favorite bar (Pork Slope in Park Slope) now has $1 jello shots, clearly I backed the right horse!
this week I ate…
Vietnamese-ish iced coffee.
A killer smoothie – with banana, blueberry, and avocado. So creamy.
Poppy seed bagel with olive cream cheese.
Oatmeal bowl. With cookie butter and a pixie tangerine.
Greek yogurt bowl with Cheerios and plums. I also crumbled a brownie in there (see below) and it was pretty fantastic.
Taboule salad from the cafeteria.
Whole Foods hot bar. Lots of veggies, rice with black beans and cheddar, and broccoli mac and cheese.
I needed a 2nd coffee snack more than once.
Best ever brownies. Just this recipe without the fluff.
Baby carrots with great feta dip.
I had Thai food in Williamsburg with Adam and a girlfriend. Drunken noodles with mock duck that were as spicy as they were delicious.
We cooled our mouths down with soft-serve from Milk Bar. Fruity pebble soft-serve(!!) with fudge sauce and sprinkles.
Indian at the Grand Central food court. And yes, I realize that is a lame spot to take an out-of-towner.
Starbucks sandwich for a quick dinner on the train and then I went straight to bed!
I did make dinner at home one night! Whole-wheat vermicelli noodles with ginger and garlic chicken, shredded cabbage, bell pepper, and a tahini lime sauce. With cashews on top plus tons of Sriracha after the picture.
We snacked on a servings’ worth of cashews and sliced bell pepper while we cooked.
Good friends, good eats, it was a good week!
