DINNER: The colossal taco salad from vegan hotspot by CHLOE. Yep, there’s “soy chorizo” in there and nope, I don’t know what that is.

Life Lately (25).

I can’t really believe how bad I’ve been about posting. I guess real life (or something like it) gets in the way sometimes. Alas, here are some of my moments lately.

A trip to Rockaway for a sunset stand up paddle boarding lesson was all kinds of new to me. An empty, clean beach? In Queens? Surfboards? What is happening here?

I got to take a moment to revel in the sheer sweetness of the summer eve…

…but quickly ditched the reflection for this refuel. All the goodies at Rockaway Beach Surf Club, a must must must try if you’re in NYC–and willing to make the lengthy trip. Expect stellar tacos, watermelon margs, and the coolest clientele you could ever imagine.

A little bit of the Greek islands in NYC, thanks to Souvlaki GR.

BREAKFAST: Creature of habit. Classic combo of 0% Fage Greek yogurt mixed with unsweet vanilla almond milk, frozen bluebs, and homemade granola from my fave recipe ever.

(Breakfast for) LUNCH: A seriously satisfying + balanced breakfast sammy (for lunch) from downtown hotspot Egg Shop NYC. “The Reformer” consisted of lots o’ egg whites scrambled with super salty (in the best way) feta cheese, fresh tomatoes + spinach, and mashed avo on toasted multigrain. The sea salt flakes on top weren’t a bad touch, either.

DINNER: Anyone else thoroughly intimidated by the prospect of cooking meat? I always have been, but this nutty easy recipe from Delish made me less of a chicken (humor me…please?).  Like most recipes I’m partial to, this one for crispy oven-baked chicken + an arugula Caesar side salad was ready in less than 30 minutes.

Summer in Full Swing.

Summer is starting to feel like it’s in full effect around here and I couldn’t be happier. Unfortunately my follow-through to post on here has suffered because of it. Nevertheless, I’m back after an unusually long respite for me (13 whole days). Here are some of my favorite summer scenes so far.

A recent evening spent at Rockaway Beach for a work event made me feel like I was California Dreamin’ a little bit. More pics to come soon — because the night deserves more than just a minor mention — but spoiler alert I SUP’ed (aka stand up paddle board-ed), then sipped on watermelon margs. ‘Twas magical.

An oh-so appropriate meal for when you have Monday off: lobsta rolls enjoyed al fresco on Memorial Day Weekend.

A.M. walks along the Hudson River are my thing. This one made me feel like I was by the bay, rather than the West Side Highway.

My mother saw this photo and asked me where in Europe it was taken. I told her it was about 15 blocks from where we live in NYC. You learn something new every day.

I was so taken with these radishes that I somehow dropped 40$ on the street while I paid for them. By the time I realized and returned to the stand, the cash was gone. It was a really sad day. The end.

Thanks for the memories May // June. More summer moments to come soon.
