Today I woke up to an atmosphere very different then Jamie did. You now know why I am thankful Phil saw his shadow. (Chuck from Long Island did, too!) Things are looking up here, people. Until then…
Regardless, I didn’t let the weather put a damper on my day!
Since I was lazy today, lunch was had at Schnipper’s. Schinpper’s has great mac & cheese so it was a gigantic step for me to go with the fig salad: Marinated dried figs, blue cheese, apples, toasted walnuts, croutons, vinaigrette. It was tastyyyy! I apologize for the lack of picture. I also had a few sweet potato fries with maple dipping sauce. Loved the sauce. Some reviews complain it was too sweet, but with this sweet tooth, I have no idea what that means… 😀
After work, I wound up in the West Village with my friend and we decided on a tiny Italian place (Zucca) for dinner (Mostly because it felt like it was below 0 and we were standing in front of it.)
I got the gnocchi & butternut squash dumplings without pancetta. I didn’t taste the butternut squash, but I just rolled with the punches because it still tasted amazing and handmade. Love fresh food. Our waiter seemed more like the owner, and he was such a sweet old Italian man so I totally can’t hate, even though I was incredibly excited for that squash. 🙂
Time to get some rest as Lululemon says, “Keep your eyes peeled on www.lululemon.com tomorrow morning. Online only products will be arriving soon!” Oh, how convenient Lulu, as I planned on waking up for an early morning run anyway. 😉
PS, Just a reminder that I need to start using my free gym passes asap, especially Equinox. If you know anything about Equinox, you’ll know why this gym may come first, and I am sure you are just as excited as I am. 🙂 Can’t wait to start reviewing different gym classes in the city!!
