homemade strawberry jam-filled doughnuts from Doughnut Plant on West 23rd, right next door to the Chelsea Hotel. yumyumyum. honestly, I thought maybe I could just kept eating doughnuts for 2 days.
yummy fried chicken, kale, mac and cheese and watermelon lemonade at Dirty Bird on west 14th. delicious food. and not-so-dirty (humanely raised) chicken.
a flight of beers along with part of the Brazil/Mexico game at 508 Gastrobrewery on a hot afternoon
yummy, greasy, very likely 'dirty' food in Chinatown.
a decent apple in June? say what? yes, this crisp and juicy beauty was purchased from a Hudson Valley apple grower selling at the Union Square market, and it was delicious. stored in a very very cold room with no moisture, they keep quite well it seems. this was my pre-breakfast, and it tasted like an October day.
and then lunch. pie for lunch (not after lunch, oh no- it was the main event) at four and twenty blackbirds. one slice chamomile buttermilk custard, one slice salted caramel apple. one coffee, one cold brewed iced coffee. oh my. yes please all over again.
wedding ice cream
bagels and coffee, and yogurt on nana's back deck
and then home, where the raspberries are really coming in~
the peas and potatoes, too~
we had a great time away, but as always, it's good to be home~
also, because it's our ninth wedding anniversary....
and...... I have a guest post (about shifting into a summer state of mind) up over at Gypsy Forest today~ Stephinie is up in Alaska and has a handful of bloggers filling up her space for the next couple of weeks. I'm excited to become acquainted with some new (to me) bloggers and see what everyone has to share about summer.
and..... I will soon be organizing a second blog swap (thinking having list together in the next week or two and having things go out end of July). be sure to let me know as soon as you can whether or not you'll be interested, as I'm thinking about capping it off around 40 or 50 this time around. links to the first blog swap here and here.
