The week since I last posted included – a 6 am-start work day with a blissful 3 pm return home // a limp, due to a minor biopsy on one of my toes // a free trip to the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum thanks to a Smithsonian “Museum Day” promotion // a one day weekend with a Sunday at work // two trips to the Gotham West Market // the return of most of my fall tv shows! // dessert once a day at a minimum // tons of cuddle time with Webster // etc, etc.
My current coffee favorite – espresso on ice with a chocolate milk carton.
Maple brown sugar Peeps. I know I’m disgusting but I kind of loved these, they are gritty in the best possible way.
Iced hibiscus apple cider at Argo Tea. I was limping through Manhattan on an especially hot day at this hit the spot.
Sushi burrito. Stuffed with brown rice, tofu, spicy tobanjan mayo, carrot and daikon pickles, seaweed salad, and red pepper. Their marinated silky tofu is the best tofu I’ve ever tasted.
Hail Mary. Root beer and rum for Adam and housemade cherry cola with whisky for me.
We shared two veggies – fried green tomatoes,
and fantastic charred greens (with anchovy crumbs, plum molasses, and buttermilk).
Mostly we were there for dessert.
“Mile-high” funfetti cake with salted caramel buttercream and giant housemade sprinkles!
Bareburger. I got a collard greens Caesar salad and buffalo chicken bites.
Last night we made a Southern-flavors-inspired buttermilk-laced feast. Apple cider for cooking fuel.
Oven-fried buttermilk chicken tenders and roasted green beans with homemade honey mustard.
Buttermilk pie in a Biscoff cookie crust.
