Home Sweet Home
After Chicago, Scott & I drove 700+ miles to my birthplace of Scranton, PA to surprise my entire maternal family. Last Saturday was the annual Family Reunion. For the last four years we've been unable to attend and this year we expected to still be traveling. The look on everyone's faces was priceless and it was great to see everyone, especially my younger cousins who have grown so much!
Anyway, we're officially back in the City & loving it. After one awful day of apartment hunting (now I truly understand what Carrie & Mr. Big went through!) the first place we checked out on day #2 was the one! We now have a great home on the UES and it's close to everything we need and want (including a natural/health store that loves vegans!) I still haven't unpacked my kitchen. but I'll be sure to whip up some great recipes for you soon and I'll have an awesome giveaway next week -- so keep checkin' back. In the meantime, check out some of the food we've been feasting on:
Mmm.. Vegan Pizza @ Slice. (Click the link for my past review)
Vegan Joe from Healthalicious
Daily Special @ Candle Cafe (BBQ Plate)
Cajun Sandwich @ Candle Cafe
Spicy Mock Duck @ Sala Thai
Scott & I would like to thank everyone who took the time to meet up with us during our travels as well as those who wanted to meet up with us and couldn't. We would also like to send electronic hugs and thanks to the many kind souls on twitter who listened to our rants and raves, answered our questions and provided insight. We also want to thank all of you who kept us in your thoughts and prayers and wished us a safe travel across. Additionally, to my beloved twitter friends who gave me Slice's address (which not only kept me fed but also prevented an insane meltdown during the torrid apartment hunt in Manhattan), I OWE YOU ONE. Lastly, for everyone who kept your fingers crossed for us so we would get the apartment we wanted and when we got the apartment, danced the happy dance with us, words cannot express our gratitude. Thank you.
