Finally, some quick pics from today…
(1) I did a quick perusal through the Union Square Greenmarket. It’s awesome! When I get my pots and pans and other cooking equipment (like the large vibrating egg slicer), I’ll make my way back here and buy fresh produce to cook with for you all:
(2) Then I made it over to the Strand, a historic giant reduced-price book store with a killer cookbook section. Check it, yo:
I purchased Ruth Reichl’s “Tender At The Bone” for $7 and started reading it today while I did laundry.
(3) New York’s best kept secret? Probably not, because lots of people know that you can get sandwiches at Balthazar for like $7. I did that today with an egg salad sandwich which was, I must confess, pretty standard; but the bread was great.
The pastries, I should add, however, looked mind-bogglingly good. Next time I’ll skip the sandwich.
