Exciting Vacation News!!!


The hubby and I booked a trip on Friday night!! On Good Friday (April 2nd) we will be boarding a plane and heading to:



NEW YORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This will be our first time in the Big Apple, and I cannot wait!!

Last night we went out to celebrate our friend Brian's B-Day. We had dinner at an authentic Thai restaurant called Siam. The hubby and I shared the shrimp parcels (I had 2):



Then we shared some Jungle Curry soup with another couple:





It was SPICY!!

My main course was a yellow chicken curry served with rice:



Throughout the entire evening I enjoyed 3 glasses of wine:



We had a wonderful night with a bunch of great friends!

This morning we went for brunch with my family. I had a southwestern skillet, and java of course:





We were tired this afternoon because we got home super late last night ... we spent the afternoon lounging on the couch and watching "I Love You Man." So funny!!

Dinner was at the in-law's house. We were having the hubby's favourite meal - sausages and perogies. The spread included perogies, sausage, potatoes, and cabbage rolls:









This was my serving:



Dessert was a small bowl of warm apple crisp with 1/2 cup of vanilla ice-cream on top:



Have you ever been to New York?

New York is great - you'll have an awesome time! I grew up in upstate New York and so my parents would take my brother and I around Christmas time every year to see the Christmas Show at Radio City as well as the big tree and all of the lights. Its so fun - make sure you do some window shopping at Tiffany's! :)

Oh I adore New York!! My last trip wasn't so great, but it's still quite the amazing city!! Make sure you plan ahead though...at some places (ahem, Times Square) you won't ever find a good place to eat!

Mmmm perogies!! I would LOVE to try them!

Yum! That crisp looks so tasty! I'm kind of jealous of your NY trip. I lived two hours away form the city for over a year yet never managed to make the trip. Now I'm kicking myself, however I have decided it WILL happen one of these days!

I have been to New York -- usually to see several Broadway shows. If you don't have tickets, go to TKTS for half-price tickets in Times Square. I'm not sure what I'd eat there now that I'm vegan, but we always went to Carmine's -- fabulous eggplant dishes.
