I am going there. With Manuela. In October.
Tickets are officially booked! I’m hoping soreness from my marathon two weeks before will at that point be non-existent, because we’re already planning out our days.
If anyone has any suggestions for good vegan/vegetarian (or any at all, actually) restaurants in the city, send them my way!
Also! I’m having a 4th of July party and inviting all my European (and a Kiwi) work friends over to celebrate America’s birthday 🙂 I had a few of them over for Thanksgiving and it was a good time!
We’re definitely going to play this game:
I’ve been looking through Pinterest and Foodgawker for fun party food ideas, or USA-themed food ideas. If anyone has any suggestions for this, I’m all ears!
So far I have one idea. I’m thinking about making a fruit pizza. Pastry base, thin layer of sweetened cream cheese, then stripes of blueberries and strawberries.
I saw a hideous American flag dress at Camden Market a few weeks ago, and it looked so ridiculous it might be worth buying for the party. Or I could buy this dress from Mango, because I really, really want it. Like, bad. Reeeall bad.
I was working this weekend so I missed out on the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. (This post is turning out to be really random.)
I made some good food, but once again only had my iPhone to photograph.
Strawberry basil pesto with whole wheat pasta and rocket.
Diced potatoes with olive oil, garlic, fresh oregano + basil, cherry tomatoes.
I’ll leave you with two more random pictures.
The cutest cat in the entire world, Harris. He lives in Ohio, so I have to be a mom from far away.
A guy at the pub last week. Wtf is he doing. He had his hands deep down his pants for about five minutes while we just sat there laughing. Loudly.
