Meredith James: Land Lock, Club Sandwiches, & Why I Use Fresh Direct.

20140416-151202.jpg

Thought it was apropos to wear my Miss Marc flats to the Meredith James Exhibit. In other news, one lazy Sunday morning, as I was flipping through the channels, I came upon The Pioneer Woman’s show on The Food Network. I always loved her food blog – for some crazy reason, every time I Google a recipe, hers is always at the top of the search results! She happened to be making club sandwiches that day on her show and I thought, “Do people really need a recipe for this?!” I mean, I get it – the mayo has pesto and her chips are home made but still, it’s a sandwich. That’s like if I had a cooking show and I shared my recipe for nachos. Do people really not know how to make nachos? Don’t answer that.

Sacre bleu, what is this? How on earth could I miss such a sweet little succulent crab!

Now that it’s slightly warmer, soft-shell crabs are in season (YAY!) Now, if you’re unfamiliar, soft-shell crab isn’t a specific type of crab but an actual stage of a crab’s life if that even makes sense. It’s the time after the crab sheds it’s old shell to reveal a softer one that’s yet to be hardened. Luckily for me (and sadly for the crab), this means that I can pretty much nosh on the whole thing. Scroll down for my fave recipe that I used last night to prepare dinner!

All The Way, John Cusack, & Cheese Porn.

I forgot to tell you guys how awesome The Grand Budapest Hotel was. I enjoyed it so much, I’m probably going to go watch it again.

In other news, I’m going to see All The Way tonight. Hope Bryan Cranston doesn’t disappoint as LBJ even though my knowledge about the former president is pretty comparable to what I know about professional football. (Elementary at best). Still, if the pace is as riveting as House of Cards, I won’t mind a refresher course in American History.

In other other news, I was wearing this outfit last week when I was out having drinks at The Ace Hotel. In the lobby on my way out, I accidentally dropped my stuff on the floor. As I was huffing and puffing while picking up my stuff, I glaced up to see John Cusack staring at me. Oh, New York. Your sense of humor kills me. Continue reading

Tex Mex Mondays?

When the first photo was taken, some woman rushing to Penn Station scoffed at me because I was acting like a noob. What can I say, I’m an intrepid tourist in my own city.

Also, last night I made delicious nachos out of leftovers. You don’t really need a recipe for nachos but scroll below if you want to see some melty cheese porn.

Not a Milk Steak recipe.

I had plans from Thursday through the weekend so on Wednesday, when I had the pleasure of having the apartment all to myself, I decided to make steak, play couch potato, and watch old episodes of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Of course, I could have gone ahead and made Milk Steak a la Charlie Kelly but I honestly don’t even know what that consists of.
