Happy Friday, my sweets! This weekend I have big plans to visit Park Slope and eat tacos and pie (more on that Monday), but for now a quick roundup of things that are on my radar at the moment.
How gorg is this cake? And it’s just a watermelon. Seriously.
Ever heard of fried margaritas? Fried Pop Tarts? Texas Fried Frito Pie? I hate to say “Hey Texas, this is why you’re fat” but well… if the shoe fits…
Have you heard of Eataly? Oooh be still my heart! I can’t wait to go.
Artichoke Basille’s Pizza is opening a second location in Chelsea! The soon-to-open (don’t worry, I’ll give you an exact date when it surfaces) restaurant will be located on West 17th St and 10th Avenue. You can sit down, you can have a glass of wine, and hoover in multiple slices of the spinach artichoke pie all dainty like at a table with a fork and knife. Class-E.
Did you know that Tuesday, August 24 was National Peach Pie Day and yesterday was National Take-A-Shot-At-Lunch Day? Okay, that last one might’ve been a joke but doesn’t that sound like a nice little warm-fuzzy to ease you into an afternoon at the office? I’m thinking of rain-checking and celebrating next week instead.
This week felt like fall, and the Dublin-like weather forced me to eat half a stick of Kerrygold butter. If you enjoy butter, and you have never had Kerrygold, get off your duff right this minute and go to your grocery store and buy some. And then sit back down on your duff, cut yourself a fat slice of brown bread, and go to town (a little cold-weather-weight never killed anyone). It’s hard to describe why this butter is so incredible, but I’m telling you you won’t be sorry.
That’s all for the week, dear readers. Enjoy the sunshine this weekend!
