Weekend Basics

This weekend was spent cooking, packing, driving and touring — in that order. We even had room to squeeze in one little home project which we've got a little teaser for below.

In the kitchen, smells of curry and chipotle were simmering all Saturday in the form of 2 new dishes — broccoli raab green curry lentil soup and a spicy take on stuffed poblanos:


Look for the full recipes coming up this week on E.A.T. and Lot18.

We printed out and played around with a host of our Instagram photos in yet another little home updating project — more details to come:


Early Sunday we packed up the car and hit the road for the upcoming week in NYC. When I say early, I mean the type of early that you get to watch the sun rise while crossing over the Delaware bridge early (3 1/2 hours from RVA):


It was a beautiful thing. A lot of people think we are crazy for driving up to the city at o'dark thirty, but it's something we swear by as far as beating the traffic and getting a full day in the city goes. For anyone wondering, NYC sleeps on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Here's a view of the nearly empty streets just after 10am yesterday:


We've both got a busy and fun week planned ahead. Mary will be working in the Brooklyn Etsy offices and I've got a full schedule on the food side of things. Yesterday we got a chance to just be tourists in one of our favorite towns — we're looking forward to sharing more from all the sites.
