Scrumptious Weekend

Shane was in Philadelphia for a week on business and decided to extend his trip to include a three day vacation in NYC. He got back last Tuesday. This is why I went to my friend Jenn's for a week. I didn't really want to be alone with the kids that long. I tend to go a little nutty. I support his occasional romps to the big apple because:

A. If I was the one doing business in the area, I would hope Shane would be cool if I took a private vacation.

B. He really does work hard and needs to decompress.

C. I am planning my own NYC trip later this fall and I want to do it guilt free. I've never seen the leaves change in New York and that's sad.

While Shane was was dining out, I was dining in. Jenn made the most scrumptious lamb burgers. I know, sounds weird, but they were wonderful. Served with soft pita, tomatoes and tzatziki sauce. Make them! You won't be sorry.

Also, I finally got around to reading Garlic and Sapphires - Ruth Reichl's account of her 6 years as the New York Times food critic. LOVED IT!!! If you are looking for a good summer read, go pick this up. Funny and surprisingly thoughtful, it will make you want to buy your ticket to NYC just to taste the fois gras. And ban restaurants like Golden Corral forever.

Hi to all you lucky ladies at BlogHer. Wishing I was there too....

Maybe next year? No, next year for sure.
