I bookended this week with two weekends in a row at work which meant I had Tuesday-Wednesday off and it was just lovely. New York has been too cold for venturing into the city to sound appealing but I did read two books and finish watching Schitt’s Creek!
Food highlights included…
We tried two new apple varieties. Evercrisp > Cosmic Crisp.
We also tried two great, new-to-us gummy candies. The Sour Patch Kids are officially my all-time-favorite cola candy.
An Irish-cream cold brew (enjoyed this far more I was expecting too!) plus espresso-spiked s’mores.
A sweet and spicy mango cocktail.
We found our new favorite Chinese take-out spot and tried a bunch of dishes. Garlic baby bok choy / spicy crispy chicken / rice cakes with cabbage and shredded chicken / scallion pancakes.
One set of ingredients cooked two different ways. First eggs soft-scrambled with maple-smoked cheddar with chicken breakfast sausages and kale sautéed with tons of garlic and gojuchang.
Then all of the above baked into an egg casserole. Plus leftover scallion pancakes. This was the best meal of the week!
