Top 10 bites this week…
Pastries and coffees at Lilia. An espresso-cream filled doughnut and something that tasted like a fancy funnel cake.
Egg and cheese on a whole-wheat roll. With an iced latte and a tangerine.
Candy oats bowl. Rolled oats with chia seeds, mini chocolate chips, and a few caramel M&M’s. (<– they are so good! Adam and I are both obsessed and we mailed a bag to my parents who flipped over them as well.)
Nectarine yogurt and red cherries. So excited that it’s cherry season.
Cafeteria came through with a fancy pasta bar. Tortelini with peas, pesto, and shrimp.
Best meal of the week was a midweek lunch date at Sauvage. The service was impeccable and the space was beautiful.
I love a good tiled floor!
We started with the seeded Kouign Amann which was buttery good. Plus an unpictured cocktail that was fizzy and citrusy but that I’m not finding on the online menu.
Adam ordered mind-blowingly good hen of the woods mushrooms with poached eggs. I just got a salad — with oranges, za’atar, and duck confit!! <– 2nd best duck I’ve ever eaten
It is disgustingly warm in NYC and I had ice cream in some form every day this week. Best = Van Leeuwen‘s honeycomb and black sesame and ash flavors.
Yummy cola flavored hard candies. Cola is our favorite candy flavor, hard, gummy, sour, or otherwise.
Trader Joe’s frozen lemongrass chicken sticks with a side of baby carrots.
2nd best meal of the week was this homemade masterpiece. I know that chicken looks awful and raw but it was actually perfectly cooked. I baked chicken thighs that marinated in miso, brown sugar, rice vinegar, ginger, and fish sauce all morning.
Paired with roasted broccoli and kimchi and turkey bacon fried rice.
Enjoy your weekend!
