it was a perfect new york city weekend
went to robertas with the bf for pizza on friday
went to brown for baked eggs on saturday
court and i wandered the lower east side
stopped into schillers for a bloody mary
stopped into babycakes for a donut
watched movies and drank green juice from organic avenue
took the subway up to midtown to see a friend in the young new york chorus sing in an amazing old church
saw the tree at rockefeller
ate at an old favorite thai restaurant
bought a new coat for the first time in four years
roasted brisket and made potato latkes in honor of chanukah

a weekend to be remembered!

i have lived in new york for three years
and three years it has taken to get me to the tree at Rockefeller Center
it was dreamy and i felt like a tourist
but i gotta say, i thought it would be bigger?


Roberta's in Bushwick is the best pizza in New York
(this is not an exaggeration)
I love this place, even though there's always an hour wait and hipsters everywhere
I had an apple salad with burrata cheese and the Cheeses H Christ pizza with tallegio, honey, and lots of ground pepper
also, it doesn't get any better than when I'm at a restaurant and its as though they are playing my ipod
feels like home

November 11th was our one year anniversary of dinner parties
it all started with a pot of stew
this week we made a green chili pork and potato stew
and of course, lots of wine was to be had
these people are near and dear to my heart

saturday = productivity

today is about productivity
sure, its been great being busy all the time, traveling, being with friends
but my cozy room now feels like a bomb went off
and i'm nearly out of laundry
and i think its time to rearrange my furniture
so today is deep cleaning day
and of course, a power breakfast in bed would be the only way to start
baked eggs/tomato sauce/parmesan + tea

There is a new vendor at my farmers market.
I picked up these lovely Raaka chocolates today:
dark chocolate with Himalayan pink sea salt
lavender blueberry dark chocolate
And the bars are wrapped in the loveliest paper which you can find at loop.

sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name

we did it. it took over two years. but we did it.
we became regulars.
practically every weekend we wake up, sleepy-eyed and yawning (hence the photo above)
and we head down to Get Fresh for a cappuccino and truffled eggs.
this place is fantastic and they know us!

having fresh flowers at home is the best.
right now we've got these pretty little babies on our dining table.
so perty.

fall weekend

This weekend we hopped on a train and went to the Jets Stadium to watch Notre Dame play the Navy. We lost (understatement) and Ben was not a happy camper but I was happy because this is probably the first weekend that it really feels like fall. It smells like fall, it looks like fall. I just feel alive with fall.

Last night my roommate threw a rooftop gathering and I made Butter Bourbon Cider. I recommend this recipe to all of you for your fall cookout's, bonfires, rooftop parties, etc. It is quick and easy and when you drink it you feel warm all over.

Now we are resting up and watching football (okay I'm not watching football I am listening to this fall mix instead). But today is beautiful and I could not be happier.

You could not possibly regret it.
