Highlights from this week…
Whole Foods’ Spring latte special is brown butter cookie – good but not excellent.
Meanwhile, Partners‘ Spring latte special is mojito and it is a 10/10.
I added butterfly peaflower tea to this smoothie (with frozen peaches, banana, soursop, and vanilla almond milk) to make it pretty and ended up with greige.
I was much more successful with frozen blueberries, banana, almond milk, and butterfly peaflower tea.
BelliWelli birthday cake flavored probiotic bar.
I feel like I should give another shout-out to this rapidly dwindling bag of Zapp’s Voodoo seasoned pretzels.
Passion fruit sips; hard seltzer and kombucha.
I had a day off this week and I walked 7 miles roundtrip from Penn Station to the Seaport for this burger and fries. The signature smashburger with gojuchang aioli, American, miso-caramelized onions, and garlic parmesan butter and waffle fries with red miso cheese sauce.
Monday I hadn’t gone to the grocery store for the week yet but we cobbled together a pretty good dinner. Chips and guacamole from our local burrito place.
Bitchin dip with mini sweet peppers (and cucumber slices).
And these Fillo’s walking tamales – Adam liked them, I thought they were underseasoned.
Tuesday I went to the fish counter and whipped up this Southern feast. Fried catfish (breaded in a mix of flour and cornmeal with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika); collard greens sauteed with green onion, lemon, and garlic; and hushpuppies. Then I doused my plate in honey, lemon, and Crystal hot sauce.
And Wednesday I made a giant batch of soup. With evoo, salt and pepper, garlic, yellow onion, celery, zucchini, carrot, potato, diced tomato, harissa, chicken broth, and chicken breast.
