Hopping Across the Pond

Time to go to London to play with my friends! The last time I was in London was in 2005, when I was studying abroad. My student visa happened to be the first stamp I received in my grown up passport. And now that my passport is due for renewal, this stamp at Heathrow would be my last one in this passport. #memories #nostalgia.

It is March and I am wearing shorts!

I went to LA the first weekend in March to visit Asmi. It was approximately 4pm PST on a Friday, and I was wearing shorts on the beach and riding the ferris wheel (you know, the one that was in the OC). Later that week, back in NYC, there was a blizzard. #unfair.

Perfect Grilled Cheese

Happy March! Does this mean it is spring yet?

Recently, I went to a cool lecture on the history of sandwiches, put on by the Masters of Social Gastronomy.  The presenters, Sarah Lohman of Four Pound Flour, and Jonathan Soma delved into how the sandwich came to be, what creates the subway smell, and, most importantly, the best way to make a grilled cheese sandwich.
