Cork Cup Sleeves

Saturday, April 26, 2008

Caroline and I stopped in for a coffee break and enjoyed the window seats at Ella Cafe Ella Cafe. They have an outdoor patio in the back and their organic coffee was pretty good. It’s nice and strong, but nothing I would travel for. Oddly, I will travel back for the cork cup sleeves (can […]

I was out apartment hunting in Williamsburg today and one of our appointments canceled last minute. I took this as a sign from a higher power, that I should stop in at Fornino Fornino for some pizza. Lon had heard something about being voted best pizza in NY on Citysearch.
I ordered the small Margarita DOC, […]

It’s That Time of Year

Friday, April 25, 2008

I don’t know if anyone else will find this funny but it was interesting enough for me to pull out my complicated camera (that I don’t really know how to use) to take these pictures. I was walking home on Fifth Ave and realized that there was three ice cream trucks within one block from […]

Lon’s uncle Allan and aunt Heather have been raving about Sevilla Sevilla for a long time. We made plans to try it with our friends Sara and Eric, but it didn’t meet our expectations. The corner space has an old-school charm, with charming old waiters, and possibly the same old customers since the current owners […]

Top Chef – Season 4 – Episode 7

Thursday, April 24, 2008

Lon and I are kind of disappointed that Jennifer got kicked off this time, not because we love her, we don’t, but we thought Antonia or Lisa would get kicked off for basically disregarding the rules of their challenge: They were supposed to make Polish Sausage and just […]

Cafe Grumpy

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

For a place called Cafe Grumpy Cafe Grumpy, the staff is quite friendly, and patient. Thanks for dealing with my questions and indecisiveness. They offer three types of coffees so I tried the Anjilanaka from Caranavi, Bolivia. It had a very nice aroma and rich flavor, but it was a bit acidic, just missing the […]

Hatsuhana Hatsuhana is packed with the business crowd at lunch time, on both floors, and oddly, sushi bar seats are all that is left if you come without reservations. The host in front apologetically asked if we would mind sitting at the sushi bar, and I was glad to take it, but soon realized […]

Asian Style Chimichurri Steak

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

I don’t usually buy London Broil but there was a super good sale going on so I couldn’t resist it for $1.99 per pound. So, I figured I would marinate it and then grill it for dinner tonight.

Spring Soba Salad

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

Lon doesn’t really like soba but sometimes I like a challenge. He gave his thumbs up on this one and I loved it! It’s pretty darn easy too.
