My life is still filled with end of school year and just because it’s June obligations. Here’s a little review of my week:
Kate Spade. This crushed me just a little. The Kate Spade style is one that my Daughter and I embraced. We don’t own anything from when she was actually running the company, the her aesthetic of clean lines and fun bold colors remained. There’s a Kate Spade store not far from my house and it will be with renewed sadness every time I pass it. RIP
Anthony Bourdain. My Daughter and I had the pleasure of seeing him live when we attended a taping of “The Chew”. I also was a frequent visitor of Les Halles back in the days before he was famous. The original Les Halles is also in my neighborhood and I walked past it earlier this week, before this tragic event. RIP
Where I went:
ICP (International Center of Photography) You know I am a frequent visitor to this museum! Wonderful Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibit, as well as RFK Funeral Train: The People’s View, Multiply, Identify, Her (about female photographers and female subjects) and Elliot Erwitt: Pittsburgh 1950. My Husband hates this museum because he finds it too Avant garde, so I took him to a great brunch before.
Celebration of National Iced Tea Day with my Tea Society. We tried delicious very berry, tropical green and black rose teas from Brooklyn Tea, a small local business, but doing some very inventive things with tea.
What I watched:
It’s Haley Dean Mystery Month on Hallmark Mystery Channel, and I love a good cozy mystery!!
I haven’t found a good summer show yet. Everything looks blah…
What I listened to:
This week was really ALL over the place, with a very long playlist. My standouts were:
- “Don’t Matter” Lauv
- “Clarity” Courtney Barnett
- “Increase” David Lang
- “How it Can Be” Cut Worms
- Every Time The Feeling” Nap Eyes
- Beethoven Concerto No. 5 in E flat major Op.73 Allegro
- “Nights in White Satin” Moody Blues
- “Feeling Good” Nina Simone
- “Sign of the Times” Harry Styles (no- I can’t believe I’m obsessed by a Harry Styles song, and I listed it after Nina Simone
- Sinking Sands” Sunflower Bean
What I’m Reading”
“The Ever After” Sarah Pekkanen
“The Dark Angel” Elly Griffiths
Have you ever jumped out of a plane?
No. That’s why they make landing gear, so the plane lands on the ground and you step out the door with only your carry-on strapped to your back.
Last week I talked about amazing quiche that I made and Cynthia asked for the recipe, but I figured you would all want it! Thought this was delicious! I did make two changes though- instead of bacon I sautéed spinach, and I used emmental as the cheese because it looked better when I was shopping. The recipe is from the March 2018 edition of Rebook magazine. Hoping you can see on the picture because I couldn’t find the link. The time for the recipe to cook is 20-25 minutes.
