Javits Center here in NYC hosted the Green Festival Expo last weekend. While Zoe and I went to a birthday party, Ezra got to try Kombucha, various flavors of gluten and dairy free ice cream and test out some pretty slick kitchen knives. I’m not really sure where the bubble full of money comes in on all this but Ezra definitely had a great time scrambling to collect as many dollars as he could over a wind machine!

yessss, has a fruity bouquet!

With all that’s been going on here, I’ve been slow to put photos on the blog (sorry, neglected you again blog!) A couple of weekends ago we had a night of snow that trapped us behind a couple feet building up on our back door. After a LOT of shoveling, the kids got out and ran around a winter wonderland of an alley. It all melted quickly but it’s now flurrying again! Hope your weekend is white – or at least wonderful – too.

When the weather gets this cold, there’s nothing better than something hot and brothy. After Sunday School we love exploring the food shops around Flushing’s Chinatown and someone at our synagogue recommended Sentosa. What a find! Their shrimp and green bean dish along with noodles in broth is amazing, and we loved the ‘Indian pancake’ in a chicken coconut broth. I’m already having a craving for more!

Some images from our long holiday weekend from instagram: we used my cousin’s lovely china for our thanksgiving meal, and outside (finally! at the end of November!) our Japanese Maple turned a fire engine red. The weather was so balmy on the day after Thanksgiving that we took our cousins to Flushing Meadow Park – where we rode the Cobra-coaster and ran around the World’s Fair Globe. Then a reprieve from turkey: some tacos from Tortilleria Nixtamal in Corona! (I’m only regretful that I didn’t get a shot of the perfect turkey meal that my husband spearheaded… it was so tasty).

Our synagogue is in the middle of what is now a large, thriving Chinatown. We love going to the New World Mall which has at least 3 floors of all the possible Asian foods you could possibly want. Just near our table we found Korean-Chinese, Japanese, and Vietnamese dishes to choose from. Check out the choices here. I hope to make this a regular habit ..

The nicest thing about our friends coming in from London (aside from playing all day) is that they force us to look at parts of the city that we haven’t seen in awhile. For example: Chinatown in Manhattan (instead of the one in Queens) and Little Italy. I had no idea there was so much great art painted on the lamp posts and outdoor areas in lower Manhattan lately! And of course we love exposing Tessa to all our favorite eats – including one real close to home at the farmer’s market. We miss you guys already!

Remember this fun place? We were back at it… trying on the amusement park rides and checking out adorable baby pigs (and trying real hard to avoid all the deep fried food in the summer heat.) But we definitely brought home some blue ribbon pies to test!
