For this week’s What I Ate Wednesday, I decided to morph both the bachelorette party in with the foods I ate while in New York City.
My morning started Saturday at 4:45am, as I had to catch the 7:15 bus in Boston. By 11 am, I was struck with probably the most debilitating case of car sickness I’ve had in a long time. The next hour on the bus was the longest, and I just couldn’t wait to get to the hotel with these 15 fab ladies.
Once settled into the hotel, we headed out to the Chelsea Pier’s for the first attraction of Chelsey’s Bachelorette Weekend!
Since Chelsey and my brother are obsessed with wine, and cheese, we decided to take a wine & cheese tasting cruise along the Hudson.
And crazy wind-inspired updos like this. I’m not a wine drinker, at all, so I let the ladies at my table share the wine I received, and I sipped on my water. I’m also not a huge cheese fan, but the softer cheeses totally won me over
Fromage d’Affinois. A mild, buttery flavored cheese. My FAVORITE. I could have eaten the entire tray of this stuff!
After the cruise, we had about half an hour to kill, so we wandered around The High Line, which I first went to with Jen back in the fall. It made me miss her so much!
At 5:30, all 16 of us ladies headed over to Ovest Pizzoteca for our dinner reservation. It got extremely busy in here shortly after we arrived, as a big crowd of Italian locals came by to watch Italy play in the World Cup. It was loud and so fun!
The ladies ordered probably 6 different pizzas, while a few of us on my end ordered salads, either due to gluten allergies or Paleo preferences. I ordered a regular salad with grilled chicken. They were pretty skimpy with the chicken, but because I was still full from the cheese, I was okay with a small dinner. After dinner, we headed back to our hotel, and we all went to our assigned rooms to get ready for the night. Not to be biased, but I’m pretty sure we had the best room. We were having the time of our lives getting ready, goofing off, talking about underwear issues with our dresses, and of course, taking selfies with Smartfood popcorn. I didn’t have a drink all weekend, but apparently the wine on the cruise, at dinner, and while getting ready, made these girls a riot. I wasn’t extremely hungry on the bus ride home, but when I stopped into a Duane Reade before grabbing my bus, I spotted yogurt parfaits and HAD to purchase one. I think yogurt with granola is easily one of my favorite snacks, and is always my go to for brunch, but I have avoided it for quite some time. Tropical Parfait. Amazing! I wish I could have one every day!
And that was that! Definitely a mix in my meals, and while it was fun to eat out, I’m excited to be back on my favorite meals!
Are you a big fan of parfaits?
