Portland & Lonesome Pie

    While cabbing it back to our "hlittle house," that we rented for the long weekend, we made a phone call, a very important phone call...to Lonesome Pie.  We ordered the #10, "Bridgette Nelson vs. a fanny pack full of pit vipers vs. whatever it was that killed grandpa."  I'm not lying.  That was the name of the pie!  See for yourself!

    It arrived about twenty minutes after we settled in.  As you can see in the picture they decorate the inside of the box and gift you with a cd.  (Not sure what happened to that.)  The pie had fresh mint, bits of braised lamb, artichoke and goat cheese.  The flavors were amazing!  My only criticism was that the crust was lacking char and some crunch, but that is to be expected I guess when you order delivery pizza.  This is the second time Erich and I have ordered from Lonesome after a long plane ride, which I guess makes it a new wonderful tradition.

p.s. Have you visited Bottomless Pie recently?  We have some new exciting recipes!

Spring/summer prints

(block print version)

Paisley version

    A few printed sweaters that I worked on for Anthropologie's spring/summer collection.  Go get one now!  Spring is certainly a bit chilly this year, and one of these will brighten your day while providing you with an extra layer to keep warm!  My personal favorite is the mint print pullover. The colors are nice and vibrant, and pair it with some white cropped jeans, a jean jacket and a pair of wedges or flats and you are good to go!

Happy Monday!

    I came home one night from work and Erich announced as I entered the living room that he had made reservations for Valentine's day dinner.  When I asked where, he said it was a surprise.  He kindly escorted me from the subway to our secret spot, Bistro Petit in Williamsburg.  The space was indeed petit!  As you can see in the picture below there is a small counter space and a table in the window across from the counter, and then a table for two in the right window where we dined for the evening.  The atmosphere was intimate and very french.  J'adore.


   Since it was Valentine's day they offered a pre-fix menu in which you had to share each course, which was a bit of a bummer for this girl because I do not like to share food especially dessert!  We had mushroom toasts and a quinoa salad with fruit and cucumber to start.  For our main course we had filet mignon with foie gras, bok choy, and truffle mashed potatoes.  Yum!  Lastly, we had a molten chocolate cake with a cherry sorbet and sauce?  Not sure exactly, but it was all delish!  I definitely want to go back and order from their regular menu.


   The evening ended with a more lovely surprise.  Erich asked me to marry him and I said I do!  Not yes, but I do.
