I'm sorry I've been neglecting this blog a little. This week was a big one at 30 Before 30 with two things getting knocked off my list. I also had Spanish finals, started running, and have just been all over the place basically. But today I have something yummy for y'all. Yesterday was my first day back on meat, which was quite a change for me. I had some butter chicken for lunch, which I wasn't too keen on, reinforcing the idea that I should really just eat meat when I know for sure that what I'm having is good and stay veggie otherwise. But this was totally worth going back to meat for. Hello my darlings, how I've missed you!
I got a little too excited and asked for 3 orders of Joe's Shanghai's crab and pork soup dumplings. For a party of 6. Whoops. We ate it all though. As well as all of this:
I had the greens (for old time's sake hehe), loooads of yang chow fried rice (oh juicy shrimp, I missed you!), and some of the fried shrimp (below). But I passed on the salt & pepper pork. I actually did not feel like eating it at all, which just goes to show how going veg changes your eating habits.
My friends did some insane food tripping while I was on my vegetarian diet, which I was very sad to miss. So I'm making them go back to a lot of these places. I'm really excited to go to Sik Gaek Chun Ha, that Korean restaurant in Flushing where Anthony Bourdain ate still-moving octopus. Check out my friend Pattie's blog post on their experience. I'm all for consuming still moving food, as you may already know from reading this blog.
I may never go back to consuming meat at a pace rivaling a T-Rex. But I have to say, it feels good to be eating some of my favorite things again!
