I’ve really been enjoying my Saturday. My favorite people in the world came to visit!
My parents! That picture was taken on the Promenade in Brooklyn, where we took a long walk. It was beautiful out!
I’ll back up… We first stopped at Ted & Honey, my favorite local sandwich shop, for a yummy lunch. I’ve been to this place a bunch of times and blogged about it a bunch of times and, man, it did not disappoint! I had an egg, avocado, havarti cheese, and heirloom tomato sandwich on a multi-grain role. I had a delicious iced chai tea with soy milk to drink.
This was the first time my parents had seen me as a “food blogger” in action. They thought it was really funny when I took lots of pictures of our plates!
The sandwich was perfect. I added lots of hot sauce and house-made ketchup!
The iced chai hit the spot- its really well made here.
My dad ordered a carrot cake muffin which he said, and I quote, “Is the best muffin I have ever had in my life.” And he shared bites! It had large pieces of carrot, apple, walnuts, and raisins and was very moist. He ended up ordering another one to go because he loved it so much!
We then walked along the Promenade, with view of the Manhattan skyline…
We sat on some benches to chat and just enjoy the view…
(My mom is behind the camera).
We stopped for treats at Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, under the Brooklyn Bridge. They always have a super long line and we wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
We ordered an ice cream (vanilla chocolate chip) and a berry smoothie. My mom ate most of the ice cream (I had one bite!) and the three of us split the smoothie. It was very refreshing!
The ice cream was rich and creamy! I’m not a huge sweets person, but, for ice cream, it was gooood!
There was a wonderful view of the Brooklyn Bridge from the ice cream shop…
We walked to the Fulton Ferry Landing park under the Manhattan Bridge, with even more spectacular views of the Brooklyn Bridge and skyline…
We walked a ton, and I was starving by the time we got home! I had a snack of carrots, pickles, and hummus.
It was such a perfect day. I love seeing my parents- they live in Florida so I really treasure their visits.
I’m getting hungry again- not sure what we are doing for dinner. Might just be lazy and order in… Will be back with a recap later!
