Happy Sunday Funday everyone! Apart from Hillsong NYC on Sunday, I love nothing more than spending time with people I love around a table eating food. Before heading to church last Sunday, I gathered a bunch of ladies together for a bite to eat a Le Pain Quotidien near Bryant Park. I've feature Le Pain before, but I am again because it truly is the best casual place in the city to show up with a big group of people, not have to wait, and to get quality healthy food at a decent price.
Sometimes, when I'm out to eat with large groups of people, I love to just sit back and listen to the chatter of conversation and the joy of laughter. This is part of what life is about...living in community, encouraging and celebrating others, finding humor in the bits and pieces, and comforting when things are a struggle.
I ordered the Tuscan White Bean & Prosciutto salad filled with arugula, diced tomatoes, scallions, shaved Parmesan & basil croutons. It is so so so good.
We then played "pass the camera", and I forced the ladies to take pictures of their food. They all did a beautiful job, I'm salivating looks at these pictures!
This was a frittata special. All frittatas and quiches come with bread and a side mesclun salad.
Smoked Salmon Tartine with avocado, scallions and dill.
Small Green Salad - organic mesclun or arugula with seasonal vegetables (not so small).
Curried Chicken Salad Tartine with diced tomatoes and scallions with a side of harissa-cranberry chutney.
Soup of the Day.
Grilled Chicken & Mozzarella di Buffala Tartine with diced tomatoes, arugula, herb dressings and a tomato salsa.
After lunch we stepped outside to snap a few shots in Bryant Park.
If you didn't already notice, we are rocking our matching sunglasses. Obviously we are ready for sunshine and warmer weather!
A little #ootd.
I love to mix and match patterns and textures with clothing. I'm a huge fan of things just having to "go", not necessarily having to "match". Have fun with your fashion and always do you!
What did you do this Sunday? I'd love to hear, and get some ideas for places to eat and things to do!
