It was a nice, Long Island weekend! We tried several new-to-us spots and went to Farmer’s Markets in Huntington and Port Jefferson.
I kicked off Pumpkin Month with a pumpkin pie soda taste-test at work! We were split 50/50 on liking it or not (not for me but it was fun to try, fyi).
Also new cookies and scream m&m’s. Again, split, my coworkers who really like m&m’s at baseline thought they were great.
And Adam and I kicked off spooky season with a trip to GHOST brewing.
Bougie green juice – pineapple, ginger, lemon, cucumber, kale, and mint.
We made a baby iced matcha with salted maple cold foam.
Blackberry jam stuffed doughnut.
Yogurt bowl with honey, jumbo blueberries, coconut, and sweet and spicy pecans.
Tiny cucumbers with buffalo chicken dip.
Macarons from Crave – Oreo and peanut butter cup.
Ridiculous scrambled eggs with butter, cheddar, gouda, leftover roasted squash, urfa chili, and gochugaru.
Whole Foods hot bar – salmon, cauliflower, broccoli, mac and cheese, and roasted butternut squash.
Chicago dog from Rock City Dogs, with crispy fries.
Plus I got a pumpkin ale with an amazing cinnamon sugar rim.
Best meal of the weekend goes to dinner at Ella’s. Great pizza! Tell All Your Friends – roasted Japanese eggplant, marinara, ricotta, garlic confit, mozzarella, and pickled fennel // Dark Side of the Moon – smoked duck, brie cream, caramelized onions, and mozzarella.
Plus inventive cocktails, I had a cherry coke with vodka, bitters, and fernet and a smoked tequila with coffee and grapefruit.
