Chinese food at Christmas time because that’s what Jewish people do. It’s a fact.

While passing (actually, being passed) in city traffic by the horse-drawn carriages of Central Park, I realized I have never actually taken one of these buggy rides and I really don’t think I ever will. I feel bad for the horsies.

I pondered where I will park my car the morning of the Fred Lebow half marathon (east side or west side of the park?)  as I stared up at these buildings overlooking Central Park.

I am obsessed right now with Arman’s grain free english muffin recipe which means I have been making one every single day and I don’t see the trend stopping.

He has a few versions of grain free english muffin recipes but here’s the one I have been making which is included in his latest recipe round-up.

The best part about having Red Mango on Saturday was the fresh berries in my cup, especially the fresh blueberries.

I was not disappointed though because this is the best whole wheat veggie pizza ever created. (Villa Monte for local readers).

My running path is usually covered in snow by now but not this year and I am not complaining.

I noticed this New York City Marathon poster hanging in my parents’ basement yesterday which I don’t think I had ever noticed before but maybe that’s because I didn’t really care about my dad’s marathons when I was younger.

Sunday dinner with the fam is becoming a regular thing although yesterday was more about my dad’s birthday so I brought an ice cream party in a bag for dessert.

Can I just tell you that this simple vanilla/chocolate/strawberry ice cream combo from Breyer’s is one of my favorites right now?

When we got home last night, I started putting our stuff together for our little trip to Boston and made sure to remember my Hello Kitty shower cap. I never travel without it.

    Even Michigan didnt have snow on the ground this year, which was crazy! Every time I have been there the ground is covered with snow and ice.
    I am sad I didnt get any NY pizza this year! There’s nothing like it:)
    I am working today and probably tomorrow and then taking the rest of the week off. I hope you have a great trip!

    Seriously. I want them all.
    Don’t get me started on the horses pulling the carriages in CP. It is a real sore spot for me.
    But on a happy note–YUM

    I am working but it will be quiet so lots of time to catch up on fun blogs 🙂 Thanks for that English Muffin link – that DOES look like a game-changer. (btw and completely random- I agree with Michele’s post about you being so creative with your run workouts. definitely inspiring me to change it up in order to keep things interesting!).

    My favorite thing I ate over the weekend was leftover Syrian food my Grammy made during Christmas. I can’t get enough of it. Favorite ice cream flavor would have to be cookies n cream. I actually kept up with my runs last week but wasn’t able to fit in a longer run since we’ve been running all over Maryland to visit family. I’ve been enjoying the warmer temps for my runs, but I wish it had been a little cooler on Christmas Day! recently posted…I Ate Too MuchMy Profile

    The best thing I ate over the weekend was a mozzarella chicken pasta I made for dinner last night. I also feel bad for the horses you see in the city doing those things. I hope you have a fun time in Boston! We are getting snow toady here in WI. I knew the unseasonably warm weather wouldn’t last forever

    I’m with you on the horse carriage thing! I saw them riding around in downtown Chicago last week and they looked so sad.

    Best thing I ate over the weekend was this chickpea/lentil stew thing my friend cooked up in her crockpot. She used a Whole Foods recipe and added a bunch of spices to give it an extra kick. Perfect for the cold weather we’ve finally been getting!

    I seriously can’t believe that you guys don’t have any snow! That’s insanity. We’re buried here, although I feel like we do have a little bit less than usual. And I’m totally taking it easy this week. Real life doesn’t start again until after New Year’s 😛

    Confession- Part of the reason why I wasn’t in NYC for Christmas was because of the infamous ‘cold’ I’d experienced over the years but now I’m kicking myself!

    I was VERY envious of your instagram picture featuring all the fix-ins the other day :p Glad you liked the muffin 😀 You tried one out with chia seeds right? Gah, that feels like forever ago!
