Non-food things I’ve been loving lately —
Seinfeld! I obviously quite enjoyed it in the ’90’s as well but we’ve been doing a rewatch on Hulu. I can’t tolerate any TV that isn’t light/funny lately so old sitcoms are perfect for me.
“Adore” by Amy Shark has been played at least once on every one of my runs recently. I heard it on an episode of Schitt’s Creek, which I’m also completely obsessed with but had to stop watching in the middle because the final season isn’t out on Netflix yet.
Dave Chapelle’s new special, “8:46,” should be required reading for any white person who still isn’t clear on why the Black Lives Matter protests are happening/necessary.
We spent Sunday getting take-out and picnicing around Greenpoint and it was a perfect day. I love everything about how the businesses in that neighborhood brand themselves, it’s such a delight just to walk around and admire stuff.
Edible highlights this weekend —
Quad shot iced Americano with skim milk from Maman. Plus an absolutely divine double chocolate cookie with oat milk ganache.
Toasted coconut almonds. I’ve been having a real love affair with nuts lately and these were a perfect blend of salty and sweet.
Take-out cocktails and a cheeseburger from Elder Greene was obviously our best lunch of the year so far.
Plus we got cocktails from Ramona – frozen painkiller!! – for dessert.
Our long-time favorite pizza spot recently reopened so we got a giant buffalo chicken pie.
I made spicy salmon roll fries. With Kewpie, Furikaki, Sriracha, rice vinegar, and smoked salmon.
