I hope everyone had a great week. For me this week started on the chilly side wearing a hat and a coat to the store, while it ended sitting on the roof in short sleeves basking in the glory of the sun. Speaking of the sun, I always forget to bring my sunglasses to the roof and then I can’t see for the next few hours. I have sensitive eyes, you blue eyed people know what I’m talking about. I bought these super cute sunglasses in Disney World in 2011 that I fell in love with and wore them every minute outside, but last summer they took a fall and cracked in the middle. In the next few weeks a friend is visiting Disney so I have her on the lookout for them, if she finds them I will cry.
For lunch one day I got a slice of pizza from Vinnie’s. Vinnie’s is known for making crazy and creative pizza. They sell everything from BBQ chicken/bacon pizza, Macaroni and cheese pizza, pico de gallo/spicy chicken/tortilla chips pizza, black beans/avocado/feta pizza, eggplant/marinara/ricota pizza. They sell lots of kinds of pizza! On this specific day their special is “Greenpoints Finest” and since Greenpoint is the Polish community of Brooklyn it’s cheese and potato pierogie, caramelized onions, cheddar and sour cream pizza. All 3 friends I was with got this slice but I can’t deal with sour cream so instead I got a garlic/pesto/tomato slice which was super delicious.
Matthew has been begging for fried ice cream the last few weeks. He ate it at Chi-Chi’s as a child growing up and has been craving it, so I found a copycat recipe and made it. He loved it. I loved it. We ate this in about 1 minute. I plan on making a full post on this delicious dessert soon.
I made chocolate chip granola bars. We ate them all. I’m making more tomorrow. I’m also making some for friends and am going to wrap them real pretty.
My beautiful friend Jessie was visiting from Florida so we spent a afternoon eating dumplings, trying on rompers at a vintage store and just gossiping. I’ve missed her dearly. She should move back to NYC!
I woke up for one minute, came back to sleep and this is what I saw. Xanadu already stole my side of the bed.
We went to the first playoff game in Brooklyn as we’re big Nets fans. We’re season ticket holders for the Nets and the games have been really fun this year but there was amazing playoff energy. Unfortunately the Nets are currently down 2-1, so hoping they come back so we can go to more games. I’m not ready for my nightly chocolate/caramel/cheddar popcorn to end.
