I swear I didn't eat this whole thing...but I wish :)
My mom and brother came into the city on a whim (definitely a perk to having my family close by!) and we all went out to lunch! If you are ever in New York and are having a hard time deciding what/where to eat, Chelsea Market is a no-fail solution. There is sooo much going on in there! After perusing the mutliple options available, we ended up at Friedman's deli. I was seriously in the mood for a sandwich, so I got the Vegetable with Turkey on sourdough bread.
It was HUGE and delicious and messy. Just perfect :) Oh and a side of sweet potato fries. If they're on the menu, they are being ordered, let's be serious.
I also was able to make myself a little quick and easy dinner on friday by following this recipe from Nourish Network with a few tweaks to suit my needs:
White Bean and Kale Ragout with Sweet Potato and Sausage
1 T olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 Chicken sausage (roasted red pepper but choose whatever flavor you like)
2 sweet potatoes (cut into cubes)
3 minced garlic cloves
4 cups of de-stemmed and chopped kale
1/2 cup of vegetable stock
1 can of cannellini beans, drained
1/2 can diced tomatoes, undrained
sea salt and pepper
Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Saute onion and sweet potato until bronzed. Sprinkle with S&P and then add the sausage and garlic. Cook for 2 more minutes, add kale and remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until kale is tender. Finito!
