Sweet Relief

I’m back from my short stint of constant work and travel, and I’m DELIGHTED to report that the Whole Foods at 24th and 7th is now stocking Pumpkin Spice Gelato. Thank you thank you thank you. Right now I’m torn between buying 5,000 pints to stock up for the pumkinless winter ahead, or exercising moderation in an attempt to preserve its special seasonal status in my heart.

In other news, my work schedule just changed (more days, fewer nights) and, starting on Sunday, I’ll have lots more time to cook at home and update this blog. Between now and Sunday you’ll probably be able to find me in the Whole Foods freezer aisle.

Starting to Panic

Where is my Ciao Bella Pumpkin Spice Gelato?

(Photo from last year.)

I keep making up excuses to go to Whole Foods and it keeps on not being there. Yesterday I broke down and went to Cones for some pumpkin gelato. It filled the immediate need but it certainly doesn’t help me at 2am when I get home from work and need some festive pumpkin asap. Anyone in the New York area seen it?

Coney Island

Although I’ve lived in New York for seven years, I’d never been to Coney Island.
Last week I went on a little field trip. It was pretty deserted.

But the weather was beautiful.

The water was a bit chilly.

Fortunately Nathan’s is open during the off-season.
