It was a very nice weekend. The weather was perfect and we made time to do some activities in the city. Friday evening we went to the Museum of Modern Art to see the Pixar exhibit. Friday evenings you can get into the MOMA for free. It wasn't very big but the pieces they did have were interesting. I also saw two of my three favorite artists Klimt and Van Gogh. But I didn't see any Diego Rivera paintings. We hadn't been to the MOMA in Manhattan in a while. We had been to the temporary MOMA Queens location though. We then came home and had some Chinese food while we relaxed infront of the television. Saturday I had a dentist appointment for a root canal and to put a temporary filling in another tooth. They accidently cut my tongue slightly. It didn't bleed much. It still stings a bit but should heal soon. I couldn't talk all of Saturday because of that and the tooth work. I'm a lot better now though. We also made two Target runs. The second time I had to use the bathroom but both times we got fantastic deals. We also saw Red Eye(riveting) and Valiant(cute for kids). Sunday we went to the Chinese New Year Festival in China Town. That was a lot of fun! Everyone was having a good time, streamers were being thrown all over the place, small fire crackers going off, various colored dragons marching up and down the streets, kids in sweet traditional Chinese clothing. Besides the yummy Chinese food from our local take out place which we enjoyed Friday evening I also made Mexican corn and chicken chowder, corn pudding cakes, and for the first time biscuits and a fritatta. Ok all the recipes were a first time for me making them. All delicious! I was pleased. The food at the Chinese restaurants we ducked into after the festival were also fab. We enjoyed seafood congee, chicken and mushroom dumplings, crispy scallion pancakes, custard(plain, almond, banana, strawberry and honeydew. I liked the plain, strawberry and almond. Niel liked the banana and plain. I wish they had coconut. After lunch we were walking to the train when we stumbled upon the Sur La Table store. What a nice store. So overpriced though. I was gloating about how I found some of the overpriced stuff they sell there at other stores much cheaper. Now for some random thoughts I'm not much of a football follower but would like the Seahawks to win. I am so pissed the Book of Daniel got canceled. Lately I really enjoy Avocado(Haas) and Ginger. And wishing Dave a very happy birthday! Pictures

Just curious...why do you want Seattle to win?

Oh and Webjunk 20 on VH1 is awesome. The guy Patrice who hosts it, is on Opie and Anthony a lot. He's hysterical/

I like the city. Pittsburgh is a pretty city too, but I have fond memories of Seattle. Plus all the history between the Steelers and the Raiders(Niel's favorite team as you know). No major reason.

I've seen Patrice before. Didn't realize he was on Opie and Anthony too.

Sounds like a great weekend-except the dentist part. I would love to see the Chinese Nee Year! I can just imagine all the wonderful foods!

Jessica said...

New Year-oops :)

Jesser said...

Sounds like a nice weekend. I have to admit ... I envy you living in NYC (or so close to). It would be nice to jump on the subway and be there. :) CO is spectacular in its own way tho ...

Everything is showing as uppercase to me ....

Linda Rae said...

now i am starving thanks ;)

foodiechickie said...

Thanks Jessica. You're weekend was neato too.

Thanks Jess. Somedays I love NYC and others get me out. I wouldn't mind moving actually and we don't have a fab NYC weekend every time. By bus and subway it's about 40 mintues depending on traffic and subway conditions.

Hope you have a good lunch LR!

Go into your template and look for the capital commands. What did you change besides your header?

foodiechickie said...

It's ok. Thanks I will look into it! I just changed the header. I think. Now I'm getting all paranoid. LOL.
