As much as I’ve enjoyed living in NYC for the past year, I still love brief jaunts away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. This weekend, The Huz and I disappeared yet again; this time to Connecticut! Rather than hosting another blogger and her significant other, we were hosted by Miss Diana and her Boyf. In very un-food-blogger-like fashion, we did absolutely no cooking while were in CT. Instead, our travels consisted of adventures like driving to neighboring states in search of a certain vino
playing card games, watching Miracle (congratulations to Team Canada on their gold medal and CONGRATS to Sidney Crosby! Even though you played for CA, you’re a Penguin first in my heart!), and enjoying the culinary masterpieces of our surroundings.
Dinner on Saturday was at a Japanese restaurant and we had a blast! My bottle of sake got a front row seat to the show, which included a volcano (exploding)
This morning, I took Bodhi for a 45 minute walk and then we were off to breakfast. We opted for traditional diner fare and loved every bite. Diana and I both had omelets with home fries (hers: mediterranean, mine: broccoli and cheddar with egg whites). We also shared two pancakes.
The Huz ordered quite a bit more, which he continued to enjoy for lunch AND dinner! Here is his monte cristo on challah french toast and there’s a plate of gyro strips with scrambled eggs and tzatziki sauce in the background.
Back home in NYC, we spent Sunday evening making one last Happy Herbivore recipe and watching the closing ceremonies of the Olympics. All in all, this weekend was indulgent in many ways. We indulged in food and wine, obviously. But, more importantly, we indulged in relaxation, quiet appreciation of winter and nature, and lots of laughs with great friends.
