2012, Week Forty-Four
Last Sunday feels like ages ago. This was a busy week. And I already feel like I’m sliding head first into the holiday season. I love it!
Oct 28 – Last weekend I made Halal-Cart Style Chicken and Rice from a recipe on Serious Eats. It was tasty, but the very best part is the garlic sauce I picked up at Whole Foods to go along with it. I want to put this stuff on everything.
It was kind of crazy being in New York right after the hurricane. It was still nearly impossible to get in and out of Manhattan, the subways were running very limited routes, and venturing south of 34th was not an option. But for all that, people were friendly and welcoming. We managed to see the Empire State Building and F.A.O. Schwartz. Central Park was closed but we could still wander along the outskirts, peering in. New York is always one of my favorite places to visit. There’s always something to look at, something to marvel at. I don’t even care if I look like a tourist anymore. Hell, I am a tourist.
The only thing that bummed me out about this trip is that we had such a limited amount of time in New York City. The Hudson River Valley is beautiful, but I didn’t get a chance to visit with friends and family living in Brooklyn. I guess that just gives me more of a reason to go back.
Thanks to Stephanie for throwing an amazing party, and congratulations to Audrey! We love you guys!
