My Day in New York City

March 25, 2013

For the past two weeks I have been crocheting this granny square blanket for a friend of mine. She is collecting baby blankets for a charity that she is running for women who need handmade baby blankets. I decided to participate and this is the blanket I made for her charity.  I was happy to help out because I know it is for a good cause.

Yesterday we decided to meet some friends in New York City for a late lunch. We went to the Meatpacking District to a restaurant called Spice Market. Their menu is inspired by the street food Jean-Georges Vongerichten enjoyed while traveling in Asia. We had Vietnamese Spring Roll, Crispy Pork Dumplings with Chili and Lime, Cod with Malaysian Chile Sauce and Thai Basil, Onion and Chili Crusted Short Ribs with Egg Noodles and Pea Shoots, and a Salmon Salad.  For dessert we shared a Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble.  I had Vietnamese coffee.

After lunch I went into one of my favorite stores called Anthropologie and looked around. Here are some pictures of some of the things that I found interesting in the store.

I hope you all like my pictures of NYC and I'm looking forward to the Spring.

Thanks everyone and enjoy.
