Book Signing

Last week my friend Dianne aka VeggieGirl headed into NYC to attend a book signing for Chloe Coscarelli’s new vegan dessert book. It was held at the Natural Gourmet. It was weird sitting in the same room that I took my cooking exams in when I was a student in their Chef’s Training Program. The small space was packed. We were lucky to get a seat right up front. Chloe came in. Answered some questions. Gave away a few gift bags (I WON ONE OF THEM!) and then signed some books. We got to nibble on some recipes from her new book. The donut was my favorite!  I can’t wait to get to my hands dirty baking from this new book. Everything looks wonderful.

Thai Chicken Wrap, Butterfinger Shake

Before the book signing we went straight to Terri, which is a few blocks away from the school. Dianne and I both chose the Thai Chicken Wrap which is made with vegan chicken, mixed peppers and a peanut sauce. The peanut sauce was really good but had a slow burn to it. It didn’t notice it until you were halfway done. I kinda like when that happens. Dianne was smart and bought a pressed juice to drink. I was crazy and ordered my favorite Butterfinger Shake. I ended up tossing it on the way to the signing. It was too cold out to be drinking a milkshake! I’ll just wait until it warms up again before ordering one again.

Eddie Izzard was amazing tonight! Best show of his I've been too!

Tickets to a show!

On Friday I had tickets to see Eddie Izzard in NYC. VeggieGirl and VeggieGuy were going and my husband and I were suppose to go. Peter ended up staying home with the kids because of the rare occasion that we didn’t have family members available to watch the kids. I ended up bringing my sister with me which worked out for the best anyway since she is a much bigger Eddie Izzard fan then my husband is. It was a tiny theater and it was amazing. This is the 3rd time I’ve seen him and the 1st in such a small setting. It was definitely the best show of his I’ve been to.
