I’ve been eating piles of cherries the last few weeks and was trying to think of ways to incorporate them into a salad. I had some pea shoots and goat cheese in the fridge, so I gave this a try. There’s a lot of ways to mix this up – arugula, some toasted nuts, different dressing. So many possibilities!
This was a rather low key weekend – Greenpoint’s been quiet the last few weeks! I spent a lot of time in the sun and made a trip to the Goodwill Outlet in Long Island City this afternoon. I’m always on the hunt for new dishes, and I found some awesome ceramic mugs and plates that totaled about $3. I also picked up a white ceramic gravy boat that I’m going to convert into a herb planter.
In the meantime, more Coney Island pics and some from around my neighborhood today.
