Sorry for the lack of a real post today my lovely blog readers, just a few Instagram photos. Last week was such a busy week and I didn't cook anything blog worthy (though I did make some of this delicious Peanut Butter Granola). N was out of town all week, which meant I only made one lazy girl dinner and it basically fed me for the rest of the week (chicken, rice, and the sauce from the Huevos Rancheros). Then I went to NYC for the weekend!! I got to see some of my best friends and had a fantastic time. We did a great girls dinner at 'Inoteca, with a pre-fixe family style menu and copious amounts of red wine. The food was delicious and I don't think anyone left hungry - we had charcuterie, grilled calamari salad, beet salad, polpette, pasta with fresh tomatoes, chicken with sautéed escarole, baked cauliflower, affogato, semifreddo, and mini nutella toasts. The next day, we had some rejuvenating juice from Liqueteria, did a little shopping (see my Glassybaby candle!), and decided to do a spontaneous brunch at Mesa Grill, where I had the most delicious Chile Rellenos. Saturday evening we went to Sons of Essex which has decent cocktails.
