Adventure update & a foodie presentation of B's handiwork!

Part I:

I think I am going to add something else to my adventure to-do-list.

To be totally honest, I had never even heard about the High Line until very recently.
According to the website, the High Line:
"The High Line was originally constructed in the 1930s, to lift dangerous freight trains off Manhattan's streets. Section 1 of the High Line is open as a public park..[w]hen all sections are complete, the High Line will be a mile-and-a-half long elevated park..."

Neat, right?
An elevated park with views of NYC.

(And yes, I borrowed this picture from the official website)
Also, there's a neat/kooky lady who serenades high line park goers with songs from musicals and operas from her balcony.
I think it sounds like an awesome place for some meandering on a nice night!

Part II:

B made himself an awesome impromptu dinner last night!

Most nights I cook us both dinner after I get back from the gym.

But I was feeling lazy, and B was feeling creative.

So I lounged on the couch while he taught himself how to poach eggs!

I think they came out really nicely!

He completed his poached egg experiment with some bacon, toasted bagel, and a very cute green salad on the side.

Doesn't it look awesome??

I was so impressed by his cooking skills that I ended up feeling kitchen I made a huge batch of spicy eggplant and lentil stew.
I'll post pictures of that creation tomorrow.
I'm also thinking that it might make a really fabulous Thanksgiving side dish for my mom. High in protein & low in meat (ok, 0 meat actually..but low in meat sounded cooler).
It's also really good cold, as I discovered today during my lunch break.
Anyway, now that B has a new egg-related cooking skill I think he's going to have to figure out hollandaise sauce.
Then he can make us eggs benedict on the weekend!!
