Highlights from the weekend…
We went in to Manhattan early Saturday morning to check out the SNL line. <– never going to happen, people had been camped out for at least 24 hours On the plus side, we got to check out the leftover Easter decorations in Rockefeller Plaza.
We spent the day with a Buffalo friend who is living in the city for a year for fellowship. We took him to two of our favorite porcine named restaurants and on a long walk from Lower East Side to Tribeca and back.
Pig Bleeker for lunch. Smoked fried chicken sandwich with mayo, mustard sauce, hot sauce, and pickles, plus the crispiest fries.
Pig and Khao for dinner. I ordered the half hainanese duck, which came with duck fat fried rice which is apparently my favorite thing.
We had birthday cake croissants at Union Fare. Can sprinkle dust be a part of my everyday life?
We had a variety of cinematic favorite tributes this weekend. 90’s throwback snacks while we watched Empire Records on Rex Manning Day!
And a Thackery Binx inspired Daiquiri Binx cocktail – apple cinnamon infused white rum, simple syrup, fresh lime, egg white.
Eggcellent dinners using up our Easter leftovers.
Egg salad – with mayo, dijon, smoked paprika, and red and yellow bell pepper. Plus roasted broccoli. We scooped the salad with Trader Joe’s honey butter potato chips which was pretty fantastic.
Salad salad with a mango kombucha.
Romaine / cilantro salad dressing / blue cheese / smoked almonds / fried tofu / hard-boiled eggs.
Have a great week!
