I didn’t know this but I guess it is kind of hard to get a cab sometimes (for example: after a race with 47,000 runners and 2 millions spectators). SR and I wondered around the city waving our marathon blankets at taxi drivers to get them to stop and pick us up but I think they didn’t want to drive 2 girls high on endorphins around and have us ruin their leather seats with all of our sweat.
We finally got a taxi to stop for us and save my tired legs from exhaustion to go and get 6 lbs of cupcakes.
A few of us shared the PB Cup and White Chocolate Blondie cupcakes. I also tried some of Cat’s apple cobbler cupcake and it was the best one. If you are sad and you want to be happy within 4 seconds: Go to their website and stare at their cupcakes. Instant good mood or maybe you will actually experience instense feelings of jealousy instead of happiness.
After talking for a while with these amazing girls, I hurried and attempted to get ready and put on real people clothes for our next stop.
The reason why I needed your opinion about anchovies……
We went to PATSY’S pizza with some friends of ours for dinner post-marathon. I cut out fiber completely for a few days prior to the race and so all I could think about was salad (along with half a pizza). I looked at the menu and the above salad stood out to me. I asked the waitress about the anchovies (never had them before) and she said they were salty……remember how I lost 2 cups of salt over the course of the race…..I went with my gut instinct that I NEEDED to refill my salt levels and ordered the salad:
Green Salad with Mozzarella, Roasted Peppers, Capers, Anchovies, Carrots, Tomatoes, and Artichokes with Homemade Italian Dressing
I thought it was ridiculously good (I think you may realize by now that I love any and all food so maybe don’t always take my advice).
When I was telling my sis about the salad and describing in full detail how much I loved the anchovies she went silent and said she lost a lot of respect for me because of my new love for those little fishies. That is why I asked the question and it turns out a lot of you think they are gross too:(
We also ordered a mushroom and pepporoni pizza.
After dinner we walked around for a while and our friend got this from a WAFFLE TRUCK. A truck that makes fresh waffles? I am officially trading my car in for one of these ‘trucks.’ I tried doing this earlier in the year for an ice cream truck but Billy stopped me.
We knew we were going to gelato with my cousin soon and so we decided to hold off on waffles for this cup of heaven.
My cousin lives in the city and so we had a little family reunion. It was so great to see you Aaron and thanks for the gelato!!!
Did you really think I would stop with just two desserts that day…come on…..we only had a few more hours to live it up.
Liz from the best BAKING BLOG EVER treated us for more ice cream. I had raspberry sorbet with gummy bears mixed in.
One of my most favorite things ever was to be able to finally meet these people (that I have been stalking for so long) in real life!
This may have happened at approximately 1 a.m. after my cousin and I walked up and down Times Square 500 times…..
I do have one major regret from my trip……
We kept walking by that place and never ate there even though we heard from everyone how amazing it is. I guess I will just have to try it next time I am in town.
Do you have cupcake shops near you? What kind do you normally order? Have you ever been to Crumbs?
What was your workout today?
-I did 15 on the elliptical and 45 on the spin bike. Oh, how could I forget the 2.5 minutes of weights.
Ever eaten from a food truck?
-One time from a taco truck and it was really good.
What type of transportation do you take daily? Cabs, trains, cars, busses?
-I drive in Utah but it was fun to take a bus, cab and train all in the same day!
