Circle Line Boat Trip to Bear Mountain

We passed the Riverside Cathedral and Grant's Tomb...
 We took a Circle Line boat up the Hudson to Bear Mountain last weekend.  We passed some beautiful scenery and even though the weather wasn't great, it was nice to get out of the city and be in a nature.

and the little red light house under the GW Bridge.

Boating in the Park

I have been wanting to go on the row boats in Central Park for a couple of years now.  We finally went on Sunday, and it was a blast.  There was a bit of a line, but we only stood in it for about 20 minutes before we got a boat.  It was $15 for an hour and we paid $35 up front with a refund of $20 after we returned the boat.

Goodbye August...We had some good meals didn't we?

Goodbye August, we've had some good food together.
We got a Birch Coffee near us and it's adorable.  I love good coffee.

I had Indian takeout the other night - butter chicken... so good.
I've been trying to take advantage of my lunch breaks.  The other day I had a slice of New York pizza outside while finishing the new Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling) book The Silkworm.  It was extremely enjoyable.  Nature, a good book, and pizza = nice mid-day break.
I threw together a fresh summer salad the other day that included poached eggs and fresh baguette.
I hope September holds all good things for us all. xoxo

Trader Joe's Karat Cake

The frozen section of Trader Joe's is a problem.  Here is our latest Trader Joe's taste test:

Beautiful cake that looks only slightly different from the box.

We each want one piece/an eighth of the cake; so we cut it up and let one fourth thaw... did that make sense?
Here's what the box looks like for your hunter gatherer skills the next time your at Trader Joe's.
Side angle of dense carrot cake goodness.
HIGHLY recommend the carrot cake from Trader Joe's.

Trader Joe's Kouigns Amann

We were very intrigued by the newest addition to Trader Joe's frozen pastry line: Kouigns Amann.

The bottom is super sugary and carmelized.
We liked it, but I think I'll stick to the pain au chocolat and croissants aux amandes.

Egg Roll Craving

I was craving an egg roll today, and instead of having self control, I went ahead and got an egg roll with chicken friend rice for dinner.

Dinner Tonight: Chicken Fried Rice, Egg Roll, and Sauvignon Blanc

My Fortune: The best angle from which to approach any problem is the TRYangle.  Fine, I'll try.
