We are 85% moved to NYC and the move went swimmingly! Plus we had a fantastic time at our friends’ wedding.
Here were the highlights from this week…
These new Trader Joe’s chocolate covered espresso beans are my new favorite thing. They have the perfect ratio of bean to candy and the chocolate coating isn’t waxy at all.
Ridiculously good cake from Marie Bette; chocolate with salted caramel frosting.
This cranberry sour ale was a total winner.
I got a smoked chicken quesadilla from Asado that was shockingly good. Plus fries with queso!
I had an amazing salad bowl from Mezeh. Mixed greens // veggie kefta // tabouleh // olives // red cabbage slaw // cucumber // caramelized eggplant // roasted corn // baba ganoush // harissa and tzatziki dressings.
Plus we made wonderful salads at home. TJ’s cruciferous crunch mix // spicy peanut vinaigrette // sesame honey cashews // hot smoked salmon // hard-boiled eggs. I made the eggs in the oven because we don’t have any pots and they came out great!
Finally, we met my cousin and her fiance for dinner at Maya. I had catfish with sweet potato fries and garlic broccoli. Plus we shared a cheese plate (with pickled apples!) and peanut butter pie.
