This was a short week for me on the work front, I was off Monday from the weekend (with Adam!!) and off Thursday for a doctor’s appointment. Wear your sunblock, kids – I have to have two moles surgically removed, one on my chest and one on my back, complete with stitches, giant gross scars, and a month straight of no gym and no normal showers. At least I got a good lunch in Manhattan out of the deal?
We finally made it to Doughnut Project! The Malter White was great, malted milk chocolate with a malted chocolate chip mini cookie and cookie crumble.
We got a gift certificate to the Russian Tea Room for Christmas this year and we enjoyed a super fancy lunch. We had vodka, of course.
And I had delicious Kulebiaka for my entree – salmon with slow cooked onions, mushrooms, and vegetables wrapped in pastry, served with braised caraway cabbage and mustard beurre blanc.
Yogurt bowl wins. Greek with fresh strawberries and caramel almond butter.
Strawberry Icelandic style with a fancy tangerine.
Chicken quesadilla from La Esquina.
Best ever ice cream from Ice & Vice. Malted vanilla with sea salt caramel.
Dessert at Vanilla Bean. Banoffee tart for me and a crazy good iced latte.
It was sandwich week for dinners! Croque Madame – rye bread, smoked turkey, sharp cheddar, strawberry jam, french toasted – with roasted broccoli and shishitos.
Jalopeño popper turkey burgers with smoked gouda and roasted green beans. We didn’t have buns but I’m still counting this as a sandwich.
Asian-style turkey reubens – with gojuchang mayo and kimchi – with roasted shredded brussel sprouts.
