new year, new beginnings

Happy New Year! I love that feeling you get on the first day of the new year. Excitement, hope, renewal, and anticipation. I feel like the slate is clean again, time to refresh and reinvent. Hopefully, 2010 will be great!

I know I've neglected this sad little blog. I'm surprised there are even any readers. Work has been a nightmare , my internet was out of commission at home and I've been keeping myself busy on the weekends.

Here is a few things I've been up too.

A good friend of mine was on an episode of Top Chef America. I was there to cheer him on. It was amazing to see all the elements come together to become the final show you see on tv.

My view. It was no easy feat being in the audience. 6 hours of filming, 2 bathroom breaks and no food. All those delicious smells were almost torturous.

Thanksgiving feels like ages ago. Spent the day cooking with my best friend who joined us this year.

So much food.

My obsession with David Chang of Momofuku fame has deepened. He is planning on opening a new restaurant this year, Ma Peche. For now, it is serving a preview menu at the Chambers Hotel. Spicy popcorn with nori. Now why don't they serve this in movie theaters?!

Fried rice noodles with lemongrass, garlic and pork. Heavenly.

I heart Tim Burton at the MOMA.
