With this rain today, one can only wish to stay home by the fireplace sipping hot chocolate or even sipping soup. One soup that gets me every time is Moroccan Harira soup. For those who don’t know, it’s a Moroccan soup filled with lentils, chickpeas, and tomato goodness.Read More
Everyone has favorite things in their life. For me, there are only two things: my home and Maggie. If you didn’t know, my favorite place to be is home. And the only place to spend my day with is Maggie. My life is quite simple other than that.Read More
Went out for lunch, after work, with two of my coworkers. They kept raving about this place “Caliente, the one with the yellow cab.” I had passed it by a lot and, I must admit, the yellow cab did intrigue me.Read More
We had so much fun this past weekend when we went to a family event at Ikea. The day began really early, at 6:30 to be precise. We had to wake up early to get there in time for Ikea’s Swedish American Breakfast. I never had it so I was excited to try it for the first time. They served eggs, sausage, potatoes, and crepe with cranberry jam. I was so happy they had crepe; I loved crepe ever since I first tried it on Bastille Day. I wasn’t so fond of the bitter cranberry jam though.Read More
It’s currently raining here in New York. It’s almost starting to feel like April showers cause of the frequency. But rainy days are always perfect for online shopping especially when the baby is napping. And those times are always perfect to run into something expensive that you have been missing in your life. Of course I ran into something. I ran into my long lost fridge… a Smeg fridge.Read More
Weekends are for grocery shopping. Yes, we go shopping on both days. Seldom, do we have leisure time on weekends. I mean, that’s how it is when you work full time. Unless you get in the habit of shopping everyday after work. That is a smart idea. Except I haven’t got into the groove of it. I will though…eventually.
So yesterday we went to Trader Joe’s for certain groceries. We always go there to get vegetables, bread, and of course their great unripe bananas. We save a lot of money by shopping there for half of the groceries. Five bags of different veggies, four banana bunches, a tub of Honey Greek yogurt, and a loaf of bread would come out to around $50.00. I think it’s a pretty good deal.
We purchase the remainder of the groceries at our local supermarket. The remainder would be meats, cheese, canned foods, and fruits. Below are some pictures of the grocery shopping and a cool red bike that we came across on our way to the supermarket.Read More
We went out to explore the city. First we went to eat at Cowgirl, a restaurant where they sell great quesadillas and Mexican dishes. You must try it! After finishing our quesadillas, it was a stroll from there. You’d be surprised by how many different things you’ll run into. Like the woman chef in the picture above. I wish I could send this awesome picture to her without her looking at me like I might be a stalker. Yikes! No one wants to be called a stalker. Still, it was a delightful night just walking around and snapping pictures of little obscurities. Leave a comment below if you enjoyed the pictures.Read More
We went out to eat Italian! Lasagna Ristorante is located on 196 8th Ave. in the Chelsea neighborhood. I always walked past people laughing and enjoying the restaurant’s food when I went to school in the area.
My favorite was the bread they served before the main course. The taste was similar to garlic bread but way better. I ordered baked ziti while Magdalene had spaghetti. However, we still swap bites here and there. That’s the privilege of having a daughter, you get to taste two dishes.
It turned night pretty quickly cause of the time we arrived. But we still had a great time.Read More
What a fun day this was. It was a long day but we all had fun. I took my niece and daughter to 16 Handles, the frozen yogurt shop that I never heard of. I mean, there are so many frozen yogurt shops I just can’t keep track. But my niece chose it over Pinkberry so there must be something about it.
After 16 Handles, we headed to the park to have some fun. Angie and Maggie had so much fun I couldn’t resist taking pics the whole time.Read More
