It’s been gorgeous in NYC this weekend, and I’ve enjoyed the chance to recharge my batteries and spend time outside.
Saturday morning, I did an easy workout (aka-used the elliptical machine as an excuse to read fiction) and then had breakfast while reading the paper.
After getting my hair cut (finally)…
I rambled around Central Park. It was quite the people-watching excursion. Clearly, I wasn’t the only one seeking some green space.
I found a few more excuses to get outside, but eventually came in to paint my nails and experiment with a new veggie burger recipe. I worked loosely off this recipe from Mama Pea, but I worked the food processor a little too hard. So I poured the too-thin batter into into a muffin tin. What the hell? White bean burger muffin things could work…
And they did, quite well. Seriously, why do I not use basil more often in things? I had one of the muffin burger things (I have no idea what to call them) with whole wheat pita, hummus, roasted brussels sprouts, and salad in miso-tahini dressing for dinner.
While looking for a line, I opened up my copy of Joan Didion’s Slouching Towards Bethlehem and found a dollar bill (with extra “0”s drawn on after the 1) I’d taped inside the front cover some years ago. My younger self really cracks me up sometimes. Gotta love the positive thinking, though I wish I could remember why I chose that book. I’m glad, at least, that I didn’t put my money on/in, say, Bukowski’s Love is a Dog from Hell.
How’s your weekend been? Do anything fun?
