Topped with a bit more chard.
I also tried my cousins pizza, which again was incredible. The crust was a nut base with I believe a macadamia nut cheese and plenty of fresh toppings.
My aunt had the curry tempeh with pineapple chutney and the tree fish salad (tried a bit of this seaweed based salad and again delish):
Before leaving for the afternoon, one of the owners took my cousin into the kitchen to show her around and let her create a dish of her own. She came out with zucchini spaghetti topped with tomato sauce and pesto. She was ready to dig in but was convinced to save it for dinner.
I’m back from my trip with my Mom Mom (grandma), a cruise through the Mediterranean Sea, and although I’ve now been up for nearly 24 hours, I can’t quite sleep so I thought I would try to get a start on my backlog of blogging with a picture highlight of our trip!
Hi everyone! I’ve been busy with subbing, looking for jobs, and many other things this week. Sorry for not posting!
I am a huge music fan, but I’m not lucky enough to live in NYC and see cheap performances all the time like Nicole does. I LOVE Glee! It’s a fun show with all kinds of interesting things happening every week. The season finale was Tuesday, and it was a great episode. The team went to regionals, and sang a Journey Medley. That is not really a plot spoiler, because the episode is called “Journey.” I won’t give much else away, you should watch it for yourself! If you go to Glee’s facebook page, you can see their regionals performance.
I have a mulberry tree in my front yard. It was supposed to be ornamental, but it’s not and has a TON of berries on it. I have this crazy idea to try and make mulberry jam. I picked a lot last weekend and froze them. I’ve never actually made jam before, but I think I’ll give it a try!
And have you ever heard of flavored skewers? We have some and they work pretty well for shishkebabs. I soaked the skewers in beer for about 15 minutes, then put spice-rubbed shrimp, onions, and peppers on the skewers, and let them sit for about 20 minutes before grilling. They were great!
Have a nice rest of the weekend!
I’m behind in posting and am leaving tomorrow for Europe so we’ll see how much I can catch up!
Thankfully, getting off the island was not nearly as difficult as getting on, we were back to Manhattan 20-30 minutes after the concert ended. In fact I think we had to wait for the subway longer than for the ferry.
- Boot camp class in Central Park
- Kayak on the Hudson
- Yeasayer concert at Governor’s Island
Ena could definitely have a future in event planning. She spent a majority of her weekends during the last few months helping her future in-laws plan the event, and boy did it pay off, everything was perfect.
So, how was everyone’s weekend? Mine was great!
I spent most of Saturday at the Devon Horse Show in PA. It was junior weekend, so my friend and I watched many kids compete. I’m not the equestrian–my friend is–so this was my first horse show. My two favorite events were lead line, where 3-6-year-olds are lead out on a horse by their trainers (very cute!) and pony hunt teams, where teams of three dress up themselves and their horses and ride to theme music.
That night I went to Famous Dave’s, a chain bbq restaurant. The food was great! My friend and I shared a feast, which included ribs, chicken, brisket, corn bread, corn on the cob, and fries. They have 5 signature sauces which are right on the table to try, and I liked all of them! Out of all the food, I like the ribs the best, they were delicious!
Onto a different subject… free things! I have been getting tons of free things in the mail lately! When I get bored, I google “free samples” and I always find something. Today, in the mail, I recieved 7 coupons for free items! Six of them are from Kraft First Taste, and they are: Ritz Crackerfuls, Kool-Aid Fizz Drink Drops, DiGiorno Deep Dish Pizza, Kraft Homestyle Deluxe Mac N Cheese, Kraft 100 cal packs cheese bites, and Oscar Mayer Deli Meat. The other coupon was from Better Oats. I’ve also recently got free dunkin donuts dark roast coffee and aveeno shampoo and conditioner. It’s great to try new things by getting them for free!
There is so much great music out there lately! One song I like kind of surprises me. Mostly, I don’t like Paramore, but her song “The Only Exception” is actually a very nice song! Kind of more like a ballad than the screaming she usually does. It’s just one opinion, don’t hate me for it!
Have a nice week!
