It's time. Since I've last posted - I've gotten married, I moved to New York, I started a new job, and of course, I've abandoned this blog.
I thought about having this be more about my life, but realized, my life revolves around food - so the blog remains the same. This time, I'll hopefully be armed with a better camera.
So the mantra remains the same: Live. Love. Eat.
2 weeks ago I hosted my first Fatkidathon: How to be a Fat Kid 101, which was a eating/drinking tour of the new city I call home: Astoria, NY.
Lesson 1: Cheese + Meat = Delicious Snack
Lesson 2: If you're going to drink beers outdoors, you need sausages and fries to munch on.
Lesson 3: Tapas are great for sharing with friends.
Lesson 4: Flan and fruit tarts are great desserts.
The flan is from New York Bakery cafe on 30th Ave in Astoria. Nothing else I've tried there is any good, but the flan is delicious. It's smooth but firm with a delicious caramel flavor. I always get at least two and always ask for extra sauce.
Overall I'd say the inaugural year of Fatkidathon was a success. One of my best friends from college, Tiffany, depicted it best:
Who knew Astoria had so much fun and food to offer?
