So I live in New York now? That’s kind of weird to think about. I have a really great job, which I love. I get free meals at work, which is super awesome, but it means I rarely get the chance to cook! It’s hard to keep a kitchen stocked when you only have the chance to eat at home 2 days a week, and even then, I’m in New York City! I want to explore!!

Apparently New York has about 24,000 restaurants. I’m starting to keep a list of places I want to go, but so far the only place I’ve eaten besides work and my own apartment is Chipotle…

On one of my first days here, I met up with a friend at a food festival on Ninth Ave. It was pretty cool! It was blocked off for fifteen blocks, and the whole street was packed with people and vendors.

A lot of people were cooking, and the smells attracted plenty of customers.

Lots of fried food, of course, but there was no shortage of desserts either.

There were also booths selling dried fruit, nuts, loose teas, and spices!

I ended up having pad thai for lunch and a candy apple for dessert. I guess things like this happen pretty often during the summer, so I’ll have to check out more of them.

  1. This is a more general comment, but I don’t know where else to put it. I serendipitously discovered your blog while searching “field engineer,” of all things. I went to Carnegie Mellon too (ChemE, 2011)! I am impressed that you are able to blog, bake, and cook so much while studying computer science. Your food photos are soo good; they’ve inspired me to purchase more decorated plateware.
