    Weekend Wrap-Up

    Well this was such a busy weekend. On top of the studying that I’m trying to accomplish for next week’s finals, Moz was over this weekend. I haven’t seen her in a few months because of school and all so it was a lot of fun. The first event we tackled was the McQueen for a Night event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. My friends and I were all expecting the Met to be closed down for the college group specifically, but that didn’t happen. Dressing up eccentrically was a lot of fun even if we got a lot of odd looks on the way there. I really love…

    Kelvin Slushies

    After hearing about the truck from the Vendys, I was so excited to have spotted the truck near Union Square today after having lunch with Kimmy. I haven’t had a chance up until today to try Kelvin Natural Slush Co. I ended up getting a medium special: Arnold Palmer (1/2 citrus & 1/2 tea slush) with a strawberry mix-in. The citrus is a bit too tart for my liking, but it balanced out quite well with the sweetness of the tea and strawberry. Verdict? Yum. It’s a bit pricey at $4, but this drink would definitely be worth it on a bright, hot summer day.

    momofoku milk bar

    I have a new favorite place for dessert: momofoku milk bar. After planning some places to go for dinner tonight with Moz, we started looking up the various momofoku restaurants. I’ve known about the milk bar for a while now, but I’ve never had a chance to go. After looking at menus for an hour, it became imperative that I go there last night. With the company of Jack, Cindy, and Eric, we braved the cold and walked down to 13th St and 2nd Ave. The trip was worth it. I got to try their famous cereal milk soft serve which tasted a lot like the milk left over after…

    Pre-Thanksgiving Feast

    We had an epic feast this past Sunday at our dorm. Everyone was required to bring something, preferably to cook. I ended up making a dessert: cinnamon apple puff pastry with creme anglaise – a recipe that I learned last year in my culinary elective! I did not think it would take so long to cook, but when cooking for about a dozen people, it ends up taking a while. The creme anglaise I made on Saturday, which took about two hours to make two batches. The puff pastry took a while to make since I had to bake a dozen. With prep and cooking time, it took three hours.…

    H is for Hungarian

    Whoops. I’m a little behind on my blog posts. I got a little lazy last week. We’re also a little behind on our Ethnic Food Nights since  two weeks before, we ended up skipping G for German because we could not find an affordable restaurant, we had Thanksgiving dinner this past Sunday as a group (post to come some time this week), and this weekend we’ll all be gone for Thanksgiving. Anyways, H is for Hungarian at Andre’s Cafe is probably my favorite. I had veal goulash with nokedli, which was some kind of noodle. I was very happy that Patrick, the Hungarian in the group, had picked it out…
