current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how about Royal Elastics? I must go try some on. I really like the non-sneakeryness of their styles.





the real 'other white meat'

Today was a lunch is fun -kind-of-day because I got to dine out with the vegetarian diva herself, the Jodiverse. (watch her site for the upcoming photos of our entrees!) We went to Curly's Vegetarian Lunch on 14th, and it was yummy. I love a place where you have the full menu at your disposal, where even the meatiest of dishes are made from the friendliest of tofu. We even had soy with our coffee. I unabashedly love tofu. My husband and I always love to tally up the soy at the end of the meal. Four of the six courses we had on New Year's Eve featured tofu in many fabulous forms: soft silken, fried, pressed sheets, and another form made to look like pork inside a pea shoot dumpling.

Anyway, at lunch with Jodi, I had a great dressing on my Tuscan Salad: carrot ginger. Now that is a good idea. I have been looking at recipes for dressings lately, because I recently discovered mesclun for only $1.49 per package at my vegetable stand!! Do you know what I used to pay for that at Whole Foods? No longer! And avocados always seem to stay at 99 cents. Brooklyn is heaven! So I made a great salad for dinner with mesclun, cucumber, hot house tomato, avocado, and roasted broccoli and tofu that I marinated in Indian "dry garlic chutney" and coriander. And then for the dressing, I made a yogurt coriander. It is my new favorite meal. The cost: $4.50 for two people! My neighborhood has great prices.
