It’s been awhile since I posted about the Brooklyn Flea, right? And this time I got (mostly) all new things. So here goes. Above is beets, tomatoes, cucumbers and feta. Probably one of my top five combinations in life. You also could have gotten watermelon and feta which my mom thought was weird but I bet it would have been delicious.

NEXT UP: Porchetta

I mean, it’s not much to look at maybe but I think it’s delicious. I’m a big fan of Porchetta. Those people know what’s up.

Followed by, DOUGH:

These doughnuts are from DOUGH in Bed-Stuy and I’ve got to say they were practically sold out by the time we got there. So if you go to the Brooklyn Flea and that’s what you want, you better make a beeline to their stand. Dulce de leche with almonds next to blood orange. Oh yeah. We went with the dulce de leche which was good. And the doughnut was so doughy and fluffy. I need to get me to their store front in Bed-Stuy immediately.

Here’s the doughnut we shared:

Oh, that was yummy. Doughnuts… Brooklyn Flea.

One of the best things about moving is all the new places attached to the new neighborhood that is attached to your new apartment. It is lovely. Last week, Stacy, Lucy, and I were trying to find a last-minute spot for dinner and we randomly discovered Chesnut – a hole in the wall – literally but not figuratively. It’s basically a cave. And it’s cozy. See all the bottles behind Stacy and Lucy? It makes a really nice feel. Makes you want to sit there and read books and feel nice.

Each table starts off with some bread and olive oil and homemade pickles.  I love pickles.

Lucy started with some beautiful greens.

And Stacy and I started with the gnocchi. I think my personal preference is for a creamier base, but it’s good to try new and different things.

And this, my dears, was the housemade cavetelli. THIS was the winner. It was delicious. Noodles and meat and cheese. Because that is the combination of life. Cheers to you, Chesnut.

I don’t care how many times I’ve posted pictures of this damn salad, it is still the best salad in the entire city. All Chopped Up. At Cowgirl Seahorse. Or Cowgirl Hall of Fame. I just love those two spots, and I like to share them with other people too. They’ve got a fabulous brunch menu, but for some reason I can never get myself to stray from this salad!

Yeah… these pictures are cute. :)

Everybody loves brunch at Cowgirl Seahorse. Who’s coming next time? Also – I can’t wait to sit outside for spring time!

Are you sick of looking at Christmas party food yet? Nope? Good. Soooo I mentioned going to a party Christmas Eve at Jeff’s. Well we returned Christmas Day for round two of food, friends, and festivities. This is part of the spread above. The turkey is from Jive Turkey in Brooklyn which is freaking awesome. They sell all kinds of fried turkeys. We had roasted garlic and jerk turkey. YUM! Apparently you can spend seven or eight hours waiting in line during Thanksgiving.

My contribution was this salad. It’s actually a recipe from my Aunt J and I had to make the dressing and coat almonds with sugar to make it soooo very delicious.

Also there was green bean casserole:

This is before it was done being topped with Frosted Flakes. Yep, FROSTED flakes. Ha.

One of my favorite pictures from the evening comes from when all six of us ladies were sitting on the couches while all the guys were working in the kitchen. AWESOME! And we were all wearing different colored/patterned tights.

Aaand here’s the whole crew:

After we had dinner and dessert we played this game called Quelf which was hilarious and makes you do slightly embarrassing things. It was fun. And I thiiiiink that is my last Christmas post so Merry Christmas one more time. :)

Okay, so maybe Thanksgiving was last week but you’re going to have to get over it for five seconds and look at all this good food!

Thanksgiving is the best. Lots of family and lots of food. And lots of Lions football but I’m not going there this time. :) Always love my Lions!

This year, Thanksgiving was at my cousin’s house in Rochester, Mi and there were 8.5 billion people and 8.5 billion dishes. Above you see turkey and mashed potatoes with green been caserole coming up from the back. There was this guy there I’ve never met before and he was like, “Why are you taking pictures of the food?” Um, hellooooooo! Haha. He was nice. ANYWAY.

Would you like some ham? Sweet potatoes? Carrots? The most amazing salad ever with strawberries and walnuts? Seriously, the salad. My aunt makes it every year and every year I love it. Yay thanksgiving!

Here is an added bonus of my little sister looking completely thrilled. It was during the part when you’ve got your plate all ready but you’re not sure if it’s rude or not to start eating. Ha.

Here is one of the lovely desserts. There were all kinds of pies and mini pies and who knows what but above is some sort of oreo creation and oreos are always so fab.

And here’s a piece of that action. Followed by some homemade pumpkin ice cream!

Pumpkin ice cream! Geeze, looking at these pictures makes me feel so worthless. I’m 25 and all I do is show up! I think my Dad brings a bottle of wine… so there’s that. We definitely weren’t lacking anything at this meal, but still. Maybe next year I’ll bring the wine. Haha.

And here’s one more pictures of my little sister trying to tame one of the thousand dogs that were running around. Oh, and if you’re wondering yes, she is dressed like an elf, and no that’s not a usual thing (someone did ask us that) but we dressed like elves for the Lions game this year. It was fun! We even had little elf hats. I brought mine back to New York just incase, you know, I need it one day or something.

Happy weekend!
