I've been meaning to report on this past weekend. It was a great weekend. My friend, Mandy came to visit from Washington D.C. and we had so much fun together. Saturday we spent the day in the city. Some food highlights included picking up sandwiches and desserts at Bouchon Bakery (a Thomas Keller) in the Time Warner Center and heading over to Central Park for a picnic. I had an amazing Tuna Nicoise Sandwich on a ciabatta roll, Roxcy ordered a white mint chocolate mousse that was so good. The middle oozed dark chocolate. The linzer cookies were also yummy. We topped off the day with 2nd dessert from pinkberry (shave ice, their house syrup, frozen yogurt, scoops of pineapple, strawberries, bananas and kiwi, sweetened rice cakes). Here we are in Central Park. Look what cute BF we are, we even wore the same outfit without any planning!
On Monday we went to Long Beach. It was cool and rainy at times, but it was great to be there and feel the sand and the salt air. The kids had the most fun burying each other.
We also enjoyed shish-ka-bobs, pasta salad, homemade ice cream and mint brownies on Sunday evening. And loved BBQing with the Blairs Monday. That Ben B. makes a MEAN burger. (Not that the ENTIRE weekend was about food, but the best parts really were).
Thanks to Mandy for the great pictures!
