My brother-in-law, Roger, is visiting this weekend. And while I'm documenting all of the things I put in my mouth, I probably won't get around to posting them until after he's left. :)
Yesterday when he first arrived we wandered a bit through Chinatown. I was hoping to find some early Dragonfruit - I was certain I wouldn't but I tried anyway. I did buy a bag full of baby bok choy for only $1 - gotta love that! We met up with keith for a late afternoon snack at Mac Bar in SoHo.
I had the Mac Rueben (just as it sounds...basically a rueben mixed in with mac n cheese!), Roger tried the Mayan Chipotle, and keith had the Mac Quack (one of my favorites - duck confit is the main ingredient). While the photo doesn't do it justice, here's my Mac Rueben and keith's Mac Quack in the background.
We found a happy hour, and then decided that Rosemary martinis at our place sounded much better. A couple of those went down way too easily though. But I did manage to make a fantastic dinner of fried polenta, sauteed baby bok choy and seared lamb rib chops with a pistachio tapenade (more later!).
