Fast Food ... New York Style

So, my dear friend Samantha was marvelling at how us "Northern girls" could put up with the cold. How? By living in a city like New York.

So today, after a not-so-pleasant trip to the doctor (trust me, you don't want to know!) I headed back to the West Side for some comfort food. For me, that's Zabar's.

If you have never heard of Zabar's, let me educate you.

Imagine aisle after crowded aisle of all the wonderful food you can imagine - knishes, cheeses, strudels, salami, breads, fresh pastas, homemade soups, two zillion kinds of coffees and teas. Sounds great, huh?

But wait, the best part is still coming. Then there's the whole "prepared foods" section ... cause you know most of us NYers don't cook. We assemble and we heat. So, what's for dinner? How about a beautiful piece of salmon with wild rice and a vegetable souffle for ... $8.55. Just put in the micro for 2 minutes and you're done. Now, THIS is fast food!

So ... that is how we survive in the North!

P.S. And if you're not hungry for food, keep this in mind ... we have a yummy resident rock star.
