So a few more days and it’ll be Christmas and I have so much to do. Besides the gifts I have to go food shopping. I don’t mind food shopping but I have NO idea what to cook during this holiday season. IDEAS??? Let me just say I do not want to cook Turkey, Ham or Pork Shoulder. I want to cook something new, not to time consuming and not to expensive. And now for some new cookbooks!
So I’m in search of a bowl for my Secret Santa. The name I picked out of a brown paper bag has dropped hints that she wants a pasta bowl. I’m planing on getting the bowl and filling it up with pasta, pasta sauce, an apron, kitchen towels and anything else I can find. Sounds like a fun gift right? I hope she likes it.
This weekend I took a walk and ended up at Eataly. I had my camera ready to take pictures but I was to overwhelmed with all there was to see that I forgot to take my camera out from my pocket 😦 But let me just say I will be back and pictures will be taken. If you haven’t heard of Eataly, it just everything Italy. Eataly has a mixture of imported items and locally made items, all good. I bought an artisan bread that was so tasty. Tune in for pics at a later date 😉
I just had a Bobby Flay Burger with fries. It was very filling! I ate most of the burger but left more than half of the fries. I must admit the burger was just a little salty but I’m just sensitive to salt since I don’t really use that much salt when I cook. But overall it was enjoyable.
This weekend we had a great time in Lake George, NY. There were so many places to eat and so many things to do but not enough time 😦 We did go to a really good restaurant for lunch, The Lobster Pot. I ordered Oysters, OMG Delicious! And the hubby had Surf and Turf which tasted so good. I would love to go back and eat there again. If you’re in the area try to make it part of your lunch/dinner destination.
The other day I went to a Greek Restaurant and ate a wonderfully tasty arugula and fig salad. I was eating figs and it didn’t even taste like it I thought it was a grilled eggplant. I went online looking for a similar recipe and I found a bunch but they all seem to be much different than what I had 😦 I guess I’ll have to improvise.
