1. Halloween decorations make me extremely happy, even when the weather is dreary. They make my walk to work so much more fun.
2. I saw 2 seriously cool carved pumpkins today. Or should I say etched?
They were displayed at the Union Square famer’s market this morning.
Now, that’s art! How incredible are the details?
3. Also found at the farmer’s market, I never knew how brussel sprouts grow. Apparently, they grow clustered together on a giant stem that almost looks like a branch.
How crazy, right? It’s so pretty looking it could almost be a decoration. And not a bad price either for that whole thing.
I forgot my lunch for the very first time today. I had a pasta dish prepared but it’s currently sitting in my unreachable fridge.
I made a quick trip to the D’agostino’s next to my office. I haven’t bought lunch in forever, and I had a lot of fun browsing at all the prepared meals to pick out what I want to eat.
I finally decided on springs rolls, because they looked so good and colorful. The lady working behind the counter had just made it and put it out so I knew they would be fresh.
With some sweet and sour sauce on the side. I haven’t had spring rolls in forever and these were chock full of healthy yummy ingredients: lettuce, shrimp, crab meat, avocado, cucumber, and carrots.
Delish. Lunch was a success. Please ignore that fact that I desperatly need to redo my nails.
Weeee Friday! I’m so excited for Halloween. I actually have no idea what I’m going to be yet. I think it’s going to be have to be one of those costumes thrown together hastily at the last minute. It’s always a fun holiday in NYC though. What are you dressing up as? Give me some easy ideas please!
