I didn’t watch any of the game, but my weekend sure was super. Saturday morning Adam and I woke up extra early and went into the city to watch the sunrise. We parked in Dumbo, walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, wandered around lower Manhattan, and then walked around Chelsea. Then we took the subway to Park Slope, did a long loop through our old neighborhood, and walked back through Fort Greene to our car in Dumbo. Throughout the day we ended up walking >11 miles.
Of course, the minute the sunrise started getting gorgeous my camera started dying/getting too cold to function.
We punctuated our walk with stops for coffees and desserts, but most of it went unphotographed due to my technical difficulties. Highlights included a dulce de leche iced coffee from Terremoto turned into an affogato with a scoop of goat milk tahini ice cream from Seed + Mill.
I did manage to get a shot of breakfast #1, at the Oculus. We split a “hell of a nerve” from Joe and the Juice – banana, elderflower, and strawberry juice.
Plus pastries and lattes at Eataly (with sips of Italian cola). I got a cream filled croissant; the pastry wasn’t flaky enough for me but the cream was fantastic and I ate it out with a spoon!
And I had to Instagram breakfast #2 at Santina.
I had a fantasmic egg sandwich. Fluffy egg on a soft bun with tons of fontina cheese and green chiles. I pretty much swooned after every bite.
Friday’s breakfast was a smoothie. Frozen strawberries with plain Greek yogurt and chocolate-mint soy milk.
And Sunday I made an egg sandwich at home. Smoked gouda and a fried egg on a brioche bun.
Another highlight was dinner at Pig Beach. We loved their vibe and their great 90’s music playlist <== we listened to “Pony” by Ginuwine! There weren’t a ton of menu options for me so I ordered some sides and then got some from Whole Food’s hot bar later on.
Macaroni and cheese, yummy purple cole slaw, and buckeyes for dessert. Plus a 10/10 vodka soda and an amazing drink with vodka, honey, and rosé.
I may not have watched the Super Bowl, but I definitely spent Sunday making and eating on-themed foods! We had nachos with buffalo chicken on TJ’s honey butter chips.
Muddy Buddies – made with Biscoff cookie butter instead of peanut butter because I’m bringing them into work at there’s a nut allergy.
I used their Blue Cheese Buffalo Wing Sauce – instead of putting in hot sauce and blue cheese separately – and my pasta came out great. P.S. heat haters, this sauce is more tangy than spicy and I recommend it for wimps too.
Have a super week!
