A week late and a dollar short

Was Memorial Day really two weeks ago and not yesterday?  How can that be?  Summer has just started and already it's moving too fast.  Let's revisit the list, shall we?

See Bridesmaids. (Um, hysterical.  Really.  Go see it before it's too late.)

Eat Mexican food. (Nope.  More on that later.)

Go for a bike ride. (Yay!  All around LIC.  It was a killer on Sunday, but we went late in the day)

See this exhibit at the Met. (Nope.  Anyone want to go with me?  We can try for a Friday night and maybe have cocktails?)

Make banana bread. (Um, nope.  It was too freakin' hot.  Bananas went in the freezer for another day.)

Maybe the beach? (Yes!!  Riis State Park continues to be a favorite destination.  Best if you have a car, though.)

Instead of Mexican, we went here on Sunday.  I've been dying to go since it opened and there just never seemed to be an opportunity, but on Sunday morning, Little Bunny, the Man and I woke up early and took the train to LIC.  

Queens doesn't have much by the way of fancy or cool restaurants (tons of "authentic" places but that's another post), so M Wells is quite an attraction.  If you go, go early and maybe don't eat a big dinner the night before.  Everything is rich and hearty.... and really yummy.

 And last week was Week 1 of my CSA!  I am so excited about this!  I know everyone's been doing this forever, but I've never been able to do it before now, so I'm psyched.  

We made short work of the spinach and radishes this week.  I still have a huge head of Boston lettuce (you can see it lurking in the background of this pic) that is destined to become this

By the way, this is my 400th post!  I feel like there should be confetti and balloons or something.  And a cake!  There should definitely be a cake! Ah well....
