fruit and cheese

Last night, after I saw 'Adam' at Angelika Film Center, we went to Whole Foods on Bowery. I claimed I wasn't hungry, but then I saw a legion of fruits.

I am afraid of produce people at Farmer's Markets, because I know I should be starting an old fashioned dialogue about their food growing practices, but I am much less afraid of getting produce in a store this large.

That is a mini cheese. They sell mini cheese testers and its an amazing thing.

Can you even tell what that is? Its the view from our upstairs sitting location. It is a metal jungle- I would expect an orangutan to swing by on a beam any moment.

Then I met up with my freshman roommate- and we all went to .

I used to draw things like this when I was 5 and alone in my room to freak myself out.

On the other hand, how is this a food-related epiphany?

It is not.

cafe orlin

I go to Cafe Orlin probably about.... 4 times a week. And often with Alex.

We keep track of all the waiters and often comment to each other, "Wow, she is looking very skinny these days, hope she is ok." And, "tranvestite changed his hair!".

Also, it isn't overpriced - it is right around the corner - and the food is fantastic.

I normally get one of their omelettes but today I was feeling like being even more boring: 2 eggs any style.

The food is middle easterny influenced. (They have a lot of hummus/pita/falafel options.) But they also have less exotic options.

And they have amazing brunch. And Pumpkin Pancakes- but it is August and so completely inappropriate to order those yet.

But The Fall Is Coming.

That is a Merguez Lamb Sausage. Yes, it Does look like a turd. Alex called it musky.

My normal eggs. Over Medium. Exciting.

Her halloumi salad

I decided to focus very hard on the lighting fixture while she took my picture below as if it was a candid, but instead I just look ridiculous.

And yes, we drank rose wine. I'm not surprised.

little pickles

This is my snack tonight. I am thankfully going out right now to get a real snack and wine. But this little pickle was good. I think its funnier than it is interesting.

But they kind of taste like fish. And they kind of taste like little pickles.

They are called cornichons.

end of story.

I want to do this

One day I will make pancakes- who cares who eats them- and make them into a stack like this:

And then take my own, triumphant picture.

I will.

I have goals.
