Blogger issues...

Heads up... all of my photos are missing. I believe it is because I disabled photo sharing in Google+ not knowing it would strip them all from the blog. Hoping they will come back automatically and I do not have to manually apply them all... which would take forever.

It's things like this that make we want to just give up and not bother with things anymore. I just want to crawl under the covers right now... here's what my face looked like when I went on the blog today.

If I've learned anything from this I think it will be that I need to simplify how and what I post. Whether that be just uploading from Instagram or something else, I do not know. But I have to figure out something. In the meantime... I'll be replacing as many missing photos as I can. :o(

ABC Kitchen Review

We had the pleasure of dining at ABC Kitchen over the weekend. A little bit about them:


ABC Kitchen with Jean-Georges
We are passionately committed to offering the freshest, safest ingredients, presenting a seasonal menu, that is locally focused and globally artistic, and  cultivating a healthy relationship on our tables and for the planet. ABC Kitchen & Michelin star Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten invite you to enjoy our award-winning cuisine, curated in alignment with the farm-to-table movement.  Our menu is free of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, insecticides, antibiotics, hormones, is GMO-free, and naturally and humanely sourced from regional farmers and fair trade cooperatives, celebrating community and the future of the slow food movement. Our atmospheric elements, under ABC Home curation, feature environmentally conscious stories, honoring the preservation of the arts and global sustainability.

I looked at this meal as a last supper in a way, because I will be embarking on a 60-day Summer "Get Fit" challenge starting TODAY. It was a great way to go out with a bang!

All of the food was incredibly fresh. My red snapper literally tasted like the ocean. The vegetables were perfectly cooked. For a decedent meal it all tasted very fresh, light, and nourishing.
