But, every now and then you need to change up the routine.
Please don't take this as a complaint. But, for quite a few weeks now my life has been... sleep, cook, eat... sleep, cook, eat...oh, and there was some drinking in there to.
In any case Rob mentioned the idea of a field trip to NYC to visit Eataly, which is a huge Italian Foodporn-fest from the minds of Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich. Awesome products, great food stands, pizza and pasta, raw fish, cured meats, cheeses, espresso, gelato the list goes on and on. And there's a Beer Garden on the top floor with a retractable glass roof! Gather the girls and hit the road.
So, in regard to changing up the routine I thought I would just remove the "cook" portion of my current regimen.
The mantra for the day was eat, drink, sleep...
With the new addition in tow we had all aspects covered.
I bought some fresh pasta and an imported red sauce as well as some olive oil, hand made ricotta, copa and other goodies for dinner. So if you consider boiling water cooking I guess I didn't stray very far from the routine. But, it was pretty tasty.
As far as the day we spent with Rob and Kate, it brought back memories of Vegas. We had a fantastic day.
As far as Eataly...more than one person that I have sent there has said "this place makes me happy"
I couldn't agree more!
