My title says it all, I am glad I went for a run this morning! It was a day of lots of walking (my favorite) and fabulous eats (another favorite, obvi)!
After we finished up breakfast A and his sister went for a walk so I could get freshened up from my run. Our apt/bathroom is so small that there is just no way to get naked, shower, and get unnaked in the bathroom with the door shut. They ended up at Starbucks so I met them there once I was gussied. I finally got to try a Vanilla Rooibos Latte.
I ordered a tall, nonfat. This was wonderful. I try not to drink my tea with milk because it takes away the health benefits, but this could definiately be an occasional treat.
From there we headed up into Soho for a foodie tour. Our first stop was Economy Candy.
It was so fun, the place was packed! The walls were filled with *cheap* old-time candy.
Here was what I walked away with.
A Malo Cup, a strawberry yogurt Ritter Sport, and a 1/2lb of fruit slices to mail to my daddy. I tried a fruit slice this evening and it was the best I’ve ever had, if this is one of your favorites go to the site and order them asap!
I also ate 2pieces of A’s Turkish Delight, his favorite candy.
Our next stop was sugar Sweet sunshine,
a cupcake shop that is the antithesis of Magnolia.
A ordered the Ooey Gooey and I got Pistacio.
They were $1.50 each and absolutely yumlicious! I deeply enjoyed mine, as shown here:
And how can you not love a place that gives you 10 reasons to eat a cupcake?
Running on a sugar buzz, we headed back to the train to go uptown to the Peanut Butter Company.
They were giving out free samples so I tasted some pb pretzels.
A and I semi-shared (he is a great taster but not so great at giving tastes!), he ordered a non-pb tuna melt.
I did manage to sneak a few bites and it was very tasty.
I ordered the peanut butter sampler.
The three of us shared; I didn’t eat any of the crackers, but I ate most of the crudites. Obviously we couldn’t finish all the peanut butter so look at the leaning tower of pb I got to take home!
And of course we had to share skim milk with a crazy straw 🙂
Bellies full, we headed back to Park Slope. A and his sister actually split from me at the train and went to see a movie while I ran some more errands. I got home before them and made a beer and cheese dip. I was all excited to post a recipe, but alas, it was a disaster. The dip was chunky/runny so I had to skim/microwave/flour thicken it. I finally got to become dip, but I had used one of A’s random beer and only he liked the flavor!
I ate 2 bites (and one 150calorie serving of chips) but I would not recommend it.
Despite our lack of cheesy-beery goodness, we were in high spirits and we played a rousing game of homemade Scattergories. Finally, it was time for the final meal; Pizza!
I had 2 slices, black olive and eggplant. Look at how frickin good that looks!
All in all it’s been a fabulous foodie day. Night!
By the Way – This post has taken awhile because I’ve taken a few blogger breaks to kick A and L’s butts at studio style beer pong.
What is your favorite drinking game? Inexplicably, even though I’m terrible at everything, I rock at beer pong 🙂
