Simple Turkey

I made a sandwich and realized that it’s almost been a year since I started this blog. I could try eating lettuce and leafy greens again. But on the other hand my reactions to foods have been all over the place I’m not sure I want to try. So I made my turkey sandwich without lettuce and had strawberries on the side. Simple and reaction free!


Crepes and Thai

Labor I hung out with Rosie and friends. We shared good wine, and then decided we needed cupcakes. But the cupcake store was closed so we settled for the crepe place. I got the berry crepe, which was full of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. It was yummy.

For dinner we had so much Thai food. I got my usual pad thai and then ordered some samosas and spring rolls. Emma got pineapple rice which came in a pineapple! We then played Cards Against Humanity until two am.


Total Eclipse of the Food

On the day of the eclipse I was out with my aunt. It was super cool because while we didn’t have glasses someone had welder glass that we could look through.  Any way my Aunt and I had breakfast/lunch at the Americana. I got the BBQ chicken panini and some chocolate cake. We tried to find glasses at the local library but they were all out.  The eclipse wasn’t what I thought it’d be: I thought it was going to get darker and what not. It got a little dimmer and cooler at the peak time but that was it. We got 79% coverage in NJ. My other Aunt lives in South Carolina and got to see the total eclipse.

The day before my Aunt and I hung out too. I got a Asian style ginger chicken stir fry. It was good though I took most of it home. I wanted to eat the broccoli and not worry about a reaction I might have. The apple crisp was good too! Though next time I’ll remember to ask them to hold the caramel- not a fan of it on ace-cream or in liquid form. We had dinner then looked around for the prefect planner, 2018 is so close! It was a nice visit!

Nugget Time

I made chicken nuggets. It was fast, easy and simple. I was tired. I used panko bread crumbs since they were the only plain ones we had around. I always get confused if you’re suppose to dip egg, flour, egg, bread crumbs or flour, egg, bread crumb. I did flour, which I seasoned with some pepper, garlic and paprika, egg and then bread crumb. I would have fried then baked but I was tired. So I just took them on a baking sheet and put them in the oven. They were good, a little bland. Next time I know I need to season them more. I ate with a side of apple sauce because I didn’t feel like making fries.

Windmill Love

The Windmill is a staple of a beach day. The Windmill, the Lighthouse and Bagel Masters all in one day is a perfect day. The Windmill sells many things but they’re known for their hot dogs and cheese fries. I can’t tell you how good they are unless you’ve been there. Bagel Masters makes the bagels as you’re buying them, warm in your mouth as you bite into them and Lighthouse is a Italian ice place. I’ve had all three so summer has officially started.
