A glimpse at life recently through my lens though the photos in this one can probably more accurately be described as what I've recently consumed. Whole Foods had a 4 for $5 sale on avocados the other week and I went to town. One of my absolute favorite things to eat is mashed avocado with lime juice and goat cheese on toast. So tasty!
I've mentioned before that I usually try to stop by Ladurée when I go uptown to see my doctor. I got the special box that Reed Krakoff designed for NYFW but unfortunately they no longer carry the special dark chocolate macarons that came with it. I did get to try the seasonal Marie Antoinette macaron (blue-green one) and it has the most wonderful floral citrus and tea flavor.
The croissants at Francois Payard Patisserie in Tribeca are about closest to the ones in Paris that I've been able to find in NYC. Their pain au chocolat is amazing too. They have shops in Soho and uptown as well.
We bought an electric grill back in December and we've used it mostly for Korean barbecue so far.
Boneless galbi (short ribs) cooking here.
I made inari sushi as a side for one of our bbq sessions. Hubster loves these.
Our favorite dumplings are home made so we mass wrapped some one Sunday afternoon.
The filling is pork, chives & cabbage. The best part was getting to eat them right afterwards.
I always get the Terimayo dog when we visit Japadog on St. Marks Place.
It comes topped with Teriyaki sauce, Japanese mayo and seaweed and it's awesome.
Checked out Go! Go! Curry which opened in the Financial District recently. This is the single size of their Pork Katsu Curry. GoGo means 55 in Japanese and was the jersey number of baseball player Hideki Matsui who used to play for the NY Yankees. They used to give away free toppings when he would hit homeruns. He was one of my fave players.
One non-food pic here. I'm so late to the party on these Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters but I finally bought a few for $4.45 each when there was a 40% off sale on Revlon at RiteAid. L - R : Sugar Plum, Brown Sugar, Red Velvet
What can I say that hasn't been said about these. Decent pigmentation and moisturizing but the wear isn't all that great.
