Out and About: Ohio Wrap Up

First I should apologize for my lack of posting since I have gotten back from Ohio. I’m not really sure whats going on in my head but I’m feeling a little cloudy and uninspired.  You would think that I would have all the time in the world to cook and bake but to be honest I don’t want to even set foot in the kitchen.  Oh well I guess. There is one exciting thing going on in New York. It’s apple season and I can’t wait to go pick some McIntosh.  In fact the other night my boyfriend and I were laying in bed and he said to me “man I want a McIntosh really bad” and I said “well I could get some apples at the store for you” and then he looked at me and said “red delicious are disgusting I only eat McIntosh”…haha I never knew he had such strong feelings about apples, but I have to agree that red delicious are not that….well delicious. Ok now onto my Ohio wrap up. It’s just a little bit of everything else I did while on my trip back home.

The full meal. You can't eat a dinner like this without a nice cold beer. This evening we were enjoying a classic Little King.

This was my drawing trying to explain the difference between American and Canadian football. Needless to say people were still confused.

    What a gorgeous meal! The salad with watermelon and goat cheese sounds incredible, I think I may try to recreate it at home. 🙂 The scallop and shrimp dish looks great too — cooked to perfection! Mike would go crazy for the rack of lamb. 😀

    P.S. French press = LOVE.

    Looks yummy! Were you ALLOWED to be in those other rooms or did you break in? lol I’m sure Mr. NN appreciated the gift you gave him. 🙂 I’ll have to try the CIA some day.

    Isn’t the CIA an awesome place. I’ve been to two of their bootcamps, and eaten in the restaurants. What an experience! Thanks for sharing; it brings back fond memories.

    A fun dinner and experience! We need to go back to CIA – we had two lunches there but no dinners as our daughter was only 1 at that time. During our tour, the pastry students gave her some cookies – so those CIA cookies were the first cookies she ever had 🙂
