back in new york. and some ice cream sammiches.

i'm back to the city!
and how nice of the weather to warm up just in time...

a few highlights from my weekend at home:

lemon jalapeƱo cookies with chocolate ice cream
chocolate chili cookies with vanilla ice cream


the deep gutty sounds that fireworks make

the echoes of the deep gutty sounds that fireworks make

the car alarms erupting from the fireworks 

{...playing in the pool}


eating schnitzel

puppies and dogs


stilt people at the parade

steve reich's music for 18 musicians in my room by my lonesome with straggling fireworks of neighboring villages periodically exploding in the distance in an otherwise silent and beautiful night

premixed, store-bought margaritas 

more premixed, store-bought margaritas

Brittany said...

I want those ice cream sandwhiches in my mouth pronto.


Aidyn is very scared of the stilt people. He hides behind me and cries.

But he loves fairies.

So it pretty much evens out. :)

Those look so good! I want them more than this cake that's sitting in front of me- and that's saying a lot!

Raquel said...

Hooray for NY, ice cream sandwiches and those bad ass whoopie pies below!

Raquel said...

ps. I have no idea why they're called thai donuts. I tried them elsewhere and they were served with condensed milk as well so I guess that's how they're eaten over there. They're also very light and "airy".

Meghan said...

They look amazing:) I would pair those with the margaritas and call it a meal:)

What About Lunch said...

This chocolate chili combo actually reminded me of a chocolate pepper cookie recipe I have (I think it's Martha Stewart's!) that is really, really good. Good to know, I will just add some chili powder to it!
Thanks for the recipe :-)
