Rainy Day Weekend

This week/weekend was one of the best I've had in a very long time. Mostly because of the company I kept, but also because of the dining I got to experience.

Wednesday: Had a friend over to make a kale and lentil stew. One friend turned into three friends and one bottle of wine turned into three bottles. Needless to say it was a memorable evening and a ton of fun.

Friday: Had a huge helping of amazing Indian food brought to my coworkers and I by one of our SoHo neighbors. Then I spent a lowkey night out at I Tre Merli Bistro for drinks and catching best friends.

Saturday: Had brunch at Cafe Gitane (Cucumber Mint Juice and Baked Eggs with Salmon, Potatoes, and Cream pictured above) which is one of my favorite places in the city and also the prototype for the restaurant I will own and run someday (shhh.... one can dream). The day also led to drinks and mini pbj sandwiches with coworkers at Botanica Bar after work.

Sunday: Worked all day, sipped fantastic coffee and prepared for my new job which I start TOMORROW!!!!!

Today I am incredibly grateful for:

- lowkey nights with good friends
- a city of unlimited restaurants
- keeping busy
- a fabulous new job
