Weekend Eats in the Arctic
When it's 7 degrees outside (Fahrenheit), there aren't many activities that can drag me outdoors. Cross country skiing is out, because the bitter cold would whip me in the face and just taking a walk hurts the skin.
Basically, it's drink hot coffee in the a.m., drink hot chocolate in the afternoon and drink red wine in the evening, in between cooking, baking, eating and going to the movies.
We saw The Wrestler this weekend with Mickey Rourke. FANTASTIC movie. Loved it. He deserves to win an Oscar.
We had some amazing New Jersey pizza at Conte's Bar in Princeton. An old institution that hasn't changed its decor since the 50's. You have to order your pie while waiting in line. No menus, so know what you want. It's worth the wait and they sell package goods too...........
I did a little cooking, which will be posted this week, and had some great Greek food at Kefi in NYC, thanks to Peter from Kalofagas Greek Blog, who recommended this fantastic restaurant on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
Made some spaghetti and meatballs for lunch, which were better than the cover of Gourmet (if I do say so myself, the paper cover tasted funny).
