Fun things from this weekend – we early voted and it only took a couple of minutes! The weather was gorgeous and we took a bunch of long, beautiful walks.
Food highlights included…
In a fit of out-of-season joy I bought and loved a peppermint mocha ice latte.
Brunch at Emilia’s Bakehouse in Melville. We had great lattes.
And a preztel croissant.
Loved this Aura Bora flavor. They have two new seasonal flavors I am dying to get my hands on.
I also tried and loved two new boozy seltzer cans. The June Shine passion fruit vodka soda has all my favorite things!
Great new flavor from Chip – a brown sugar cookie made with apple butter, stuffed with a caramel apple filling, and topped with cinnamon sugar.
Desserts in Astoria. Baklava and Knafeh.
Thai food in Astoria. I got extra-spicy drunken noodles with extra veggies and mock duck.
Plus we shared great crab rangoon.
Trader Joe’s pumpkin-shaped pasta with homemade meat sauce (pizza sauce with ground turkey and ground chicken, garlic, salt, pepper, urfa pepper, smoked paprika, and three cheese blend). Plus rainbow cauliflower.
