This is a longer wrap-up (Monday through Sunday) and I ate too many yummy things to chose a single favorite for my post title. I’ve got my top three – 1) Thai-style crab fried rice, 2) roasted garlic bread, and 3) black sesame shaved ice.
Here were the highlights…
Killer coffee combo – Volcanic roast with chocolate milk.
Usually I just have coffee for breakfast or eat something on my train, but this week the cafeteria sounded amazing first thing in the morning. Eggs and hashbrowns, with humus.
Cafeteria lunch, a spicy chicken sandwich on ridiculously cheesy bread with mustard, lettuce, and bell pepper.
Last weekend I spent forever trying to make coconut curd. I didn’t make jam, but I did filthy every last inch of my stovetop. My experiment didn’t work, at all, but I did kind of like the end result – a vaguely sweet, egg, cake.
I enjoyed my “jam” in lunches all week. Like with vanilla bean yogurt and blackberries.
And plain yogurt, berries, maple quinoa granola, and black sesame seeds.
Whole Foods hot bar lunch.
Sesame broccoli, turkey salad, and cole slaw.
Plus a maple soda that was not as exciting as I was expecting it to be; it had an off-putting aftertaste.
Snack time. Ice cream = maple walnut and a white chocolate vanilla marshmallow flavor.
Crème brulee milk stout.
My workweek dinners were on point! Like crab fried rice with roasted broccoli and sliced cucumber.
I loosely followed this recipe, except I used brown rice and waaaay more crab. It was fantastic.
Vampire killer, I roasted three whole heads of garlic for this recipe.
Garlic turkey meatballs with red sauce and roasted zucchini.
And amazing homemade garlic bread – I mashed butter and roasted garlic and then slathered it on sliced sourdough and baked until delicious.
Even our leftovers meal was tasty. Cheese tortellini with meatballs, peas, roasted garlic, and red sauce.
One night I had dinner out with a coworker. We checked out the new Brooklyn MŏkBar location. They have a liquor license now, and I got a yummy vodka “cloudsicle.”
Plus chicken ramen with kimchi and poached egg.
And the new Brooklyn Snowdays location was right next door! Black sesame shaved ice with oreo, mochi, and condensed milk.
Plus a dinner date with the husband. Brinkley’s has Genesee Cream Ale on draught!
We got pimento cheese dip and duck fat fries to start and I dipped my fries in the pimento cheese and pretty much died of
heart failure happiness.
Plus fish tacos with mahi, guacamole, and pineapple salsa.
The other two dinners were decidedly less exciting. Like Chipotle take out. And more hot bar. Yes, I went to Whole Foods two different days, it was an exciting week. I was too busy at work yesterday to break for lunch so by the time I got dinner I ate a giant plate of all of the things.
Now it’s two days of work before a break on Wednesday.
Have a great week!
