Weekend Diet

On Friday, Ken and I had a pretty laid back night because we were both tired from our long week of work. We decided to do a no fuss dinner and ended up ordering sushi from Nomado 33, one of our favorite take out places these days. We ordered an eel and avocado roll, spicy tuna roll, a pizza roll that came with spicy tuna, eel, avocado, snow crab with eel sauce, 3 color tobiko and spicy mayo eel sauce, and another crazy roll that filled us up while we watched a marathon of DC Cupcakes at Ken’s place.

On Saturday, we woke up at the crack of dawn (or 5:30) to get ready for our ski trip to Hunter with Laura and David. Laura picked up bagels on Friday night so we had bagels with lox and green onion spread and then the organizers of the ski trip picked up bagels as well. The trip up to Hunter ended up being a carb fest and I think I hate 2 and a half bagels, a lot of cream cheese, and a couple strips of lox. It was a perfect day for skiing and when we went in for lunch, we ordered a ton of bad food – macaroni and cheese, clam chowder, tacos, and a large turkey sandwich on foccacia. The sandwich and mac and cheese were really bad (overcooked noodles and the sandwich was just…not good). We ended up having a lot of fun skiing in the afternoon and then took the longest bus ride home ever (four hours because the bus driver had no idea where he was going). When we got dropped off, Ken and I decided to grab a pizza at John’s Pizzeria on Bleecker – we ordered a pitcher of diet coke and drank it all, a pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms, and peppers, and a salad for good measure.

On Sunday, we spent the morning at Per Se, one of my favorite restaurants in the world. So the background story: when Ken and I first met, he asked me about my favorite restaurants. I listed Per Se, Le Bernardin, and Marea (hey, they are my favorites!) He said he wanted to take me there for our first date and I told him it was a four hour meal that was probably best to be saved for a later date. We ended up going to Corton on our first date (practically the same as Per Se!) and decided to visit Per Se for a late Valentine’s day celebration. We had a wonderful meal starting with my favorite salmon cone with creme fraiche:


And ended with so many desserts (the desserts from the lunch tasting was actually not that good but the extra desserts were awesome) – coffee:


And fresh brioche doughnuts:


I think that sums it up for my hedonistic weekend…Ken and I are heading to St. Maarten at the end of the week – maybe I can top this weekend diet!
