New York, Chicago, New York?

Union Square Greenmarket

Sorry for the unannounced disappearance but I have been traveling like crazy! I’ve been New York, Baltimore, Chicago and now I’m back in New York! I was supposed to fly to San Francisco from Chicago but missed my flight (actually I missed the entire airport since I accidentally went to the wrong one!). I was going to be stuck in Chicago overnight because all the San Francisco flights were booked up so I hopped on a plane back to New York City instead! Might not make much sense to some but made perfect sense to me. I am now in New York and having a great time wandering the city alone once again! Did I mention I love this city??

The above photo was taken at the Union Square Greenmarket which I discovered on my very first day in New York. I will be writing more about the Greenmarket as well as all of the rest of my adventures (including the foodblogging class by Matt Armendariz and Blogher conference) in a series of posts starting soon. Once I get to California, I will have use of a kitchen again which means new recipes and food photos. Stay tuned!

    How completely fun. I wish I was in New York too! Very fun hanging out with you in Chicago. Remember, Salt Lake is between New York and California and I have a sofa bed.

    Welcome back to New York! It is indeed a fantastic city. It was terrific having dim sum with you a couple of weeks ago–if you’re here for a while and would like to go chowhounding drop me a line!

    It’s good to have you back! I was getting very hungry waiting for your next recipe. Will you (and spouse) be posted back in the USA? I am also a great fan of NYC, but as a California native,here is where good food begins!

    I keep checking in, I’m glad to see a note about your travels! My wife and I wandered through the same Union Square Greenmarket just earlier this year. (While it was nice and frosty, still open though!) It’s hard not to love NYC! 🙂

    Just for a change of pace, you should head down here to Hotlanta!

    Now that is a market! Our hometown had an awesome farmer’s market every weekend, took up half of the main street. (can we say small town?) I really miss having all the fresh yummy good stuff as the produce section in the local grocery stores where we’ve moved to kind of stinks.

    Welcome back, Nicole! It was great to meet you, however briefly, at the food bloggers dinner in Chicago. I’m looking forward to hearing about the Union Square Greenmarket. The farmers markets in Chicago unfortunately have a ways to go.

    Amanda: I’ll get something posted about BlogHer one of these days! I have so much to write about that I don’t even know where to begin now!

    Kalyn: It was great to meet you and hang out in Chicago! I’d love to come visit Salt Lake sometime and of course you’re welcome to visit me wherever I end up!

    Lisa: I had so much fun sharing Dim Sum with you guys! Sorry we didn’t get a chance to hook up again but I think I’ll be back in New York soon! I’d love to keep in touch and get together sometime soon!

    Susan: We’ll be back in the states sometime this winter. I’ll be sad to leave Sicily but looking forward to some things!

    Brian: I’d love to visit Atlanta someday but I think I’ll try another time of year 😉 I don’t do humidity.

    Katiez: Can’t touch the vegetables?? I would have a problem with that 🙂 I’m having a blast flying around but I’m getting tired of living out of a suitcase!

    Loretta: Maybe a farmer’s market will pop up in your area soon. It seems like they are becoming more and more popular

    Peter: Thanks, it’s nice to be missed! Where are you now?

    Amy: It was cool to meet up with you in NYC. How crazy was that??

    Genie: I had a lot of fun hanging out at BlogHer! New York was great the second time around, too! I keep thinking I want to go to Iowa now for corn dogs though!

    Butters: Unfortunately I didn’t get to see a whole lot in Baltimore because it was a quick visit. I did have crabcakes though and I also ate at a really fun and yummy southwestern restaurant called Gecko’s (I think). Great food and great margaritas!

    Terry B: It was great to meet you guys and I LOVED the restaurant you picked! I wish we would have had more time to chat but I know I’ll be back in Chicago someday because I loved the city and didn’t get to spend nearly enough time exploring!

    Emon: It was great hanging out! If it weren’t for you, I probably wouldn’t have any photos of myself in New York!

    Shivapriya: Sorry we haven’t been able to meet up yet! I’m sure I’ll be back on the east coast soon!

    Cynthia: I’ve done so much in the last few weeks that when I sit down to write about it, I don’t even know where to begin! I think it will just come out in bits and pieces here and there 🙂

    Gemma: Thanks, it was great to meet you too!
