Happy Friday, everyone! I’m currently en route to Montauk for Saturday’s triathlon, but I want to share some escapades from my mommy’s visit last week.
We polished off some guac, chips, and one pitcher of red sangria, plus our delicious chicken enchilada entrees. (She totally copied me.) Everything tasted so delicious, but not going to lie, my stomach was not happy the next few days. You win some, you lose some.
Fourteen people comprised our three-hour long tour, and our guide Darryl was hilarious. He’s an actor, so he’d randomly start singing and dancing. Anyway, our first stop of the day was Eleni’s, a bakery that fuses sweet treats with graphic art.
The Chelsea Market shop was huge and had a ton of delicious looking cookies.
Nothing like a mini-red velvet cupcake at 10 a.m. And I know Tim O’Donnell and Mirinda Carfrae would approve!
Next, we took a quick peek inside Chelsea Wine Vault, and I loved seeing a few CNY bottles.
Woohoo for hometown pride! No tastings unfortunately, but the store does offer classes, and my mom and I decided we’ll do one next time—with my dad, too, of course.
You’re not a healthy living blogging unless you photograph various nutbutters, right?
We visited Lucy’s Whey for cheddar cheese and a sinful grilled cheese panini.
I’m not a huge cheese person (so weird, I know), but I easily polished off this comfort food favorite.
During our break, we had time to browse a bit, and I found this chipotle extra virgin olive oil at The Filling Station.
Yes, chipotle EVOO. How good does that sound?
Farther into this store area, there was a book exchange.
Our final stop in Chelsea Market was Sarabeth’s where we tasted a scone with jam and marmalade.
And later that night, my mom and I saw The Book of Mormon on Broadway.
Two words: hilariously obscene!
