As soon as we got back home from our travels, I hit the kitchen. The first recipe recreation I'd like to share is the Spinach and Chickpea Cazuela we had at Barcelona Wine Bar. With fall just around the corner, this is the PERFECT side to serve as a snack, appetizer, or side dish. It is warm, filling, and the cumin adds a smokey flavor. The roasted garlic and shallot contributes a sweet flavor that definitely plays well with the savory taste of cumin. There are only about nine ingredients involved (not including, water, salt, and pepper!). Most of them are pantry staples, so you probably have them all in your house right now! Except for the cumin seeds, maybe!
We came. We saw. We conquered. In total, we walked 13 miles on the hottest day of September in NYC for years. From Little Italy, to Nolita, through Chinatown, to Brooklyn, back to Grand Central Station, by Gramercy Park, through Chelsea, and back to The High Line! Plus - a map of all of my favorite spots in New York City, including destinations for our next visits!
Eating healthy is definitely a priority to me so setting aside time to plan out or prepare food is necessary. My favorite meal of the day is breakfast, I actually require two of them. Since I’ve been working during this time I had to come up with something easy, satiating, delicious, AND mobile.
I have decided to start my first series ever! I shall call it, 'The Grateful Plate'. This series is dedicated to everyone who has shown us love and support during Lainee’s journey! Whether it is in the form of comments on Instagram, text messages, emails, visits, cards, or donating to Lainee’s gofundme account, we can’t thank you enough for making us feel so loved and cared for, and for helping to ease the burden of this journey!
