I stupidly went to New York City for a whole week without my camera. And I made a lot of food, so I ended up resorting to take pictures with my Blackberry, which is disgraceful, but some actually came out pretty cool.
Union Square Farmers’ Markets bounty
Tomatillos, corn and roasted poblanos, which all ended up in a green soup
More market bounty
Avocado, tomato and grapefruit salad
Gnocchi for Naamah
Panfried cod for Naamah
Berries with Creme Fraiche and honey
And finally, some salsa verde eggs on a tortilla with avocados and tomato for breakfast. Best composite leftover meal in the book.
One of my favorite food blogs is Last Night’s Dinner, where once a week blogger Jennifer Hess posts a visual record of her weekend’s eats (and drinks). No silly write ups, just awesome pictures which make you envy her culinary existence.
Jason Hibner and I went to the farmers market early Sunday morning. And so, with that, here is a visual record of one fantastic weekend breakfast. (These were taken with Jason’s awesome new camera).
You heard right. We had a meni/pedi/french toast brunch. Here’s some evidence:
For the first time in my life, I’ve successfully flipped a Spanish tortilla this week. It didn’t break, and while it wasn’t quite as thick as it should be, the confetti potatoes were pretty awesome. It also had some red onions. It makes for the easiest and most comforting dinner.

And into my belly (with some salad)
This week has been like the good old days– so much cooking! Here are some highlights:
Spice Pumpkin Pancakes from Joy the Baker
Cranberry Cream Scones from Smitten Kitchen
These were joined by a delicious fruit salad, and some carrot muffins which my friends made, and then we had the best brunch of all times:
Finally, some impromptu red Daal
Applying to grad school means eating very poorly. Hopefully going to grad school won’t mean the same. In the mean time here are some thing I’ve been cooking (and eating).
Pre Post-GRE feast

Tomato, Spinach and White Bean soup
Chicken and Avocado Salad
