Yesterday was our Wild Ginger blogger meet-up, which I will get to in a moment, but I have other eats to post as well, so let's get started!
When I was down in Soho late last week, I stopped in Peep again.
I started off with their amazing spring rolls in a sweet carrot sauce.
For something different I tried their turmeric saffron fried rice. It came with egg, carrots, and a whole lot of other veggies, and I chose to get it with tofu. This was definitely a different fried rice from what I was normally used to, but it was good and I'd get it again.
Yesterday was the highly anticipated blogger meet-up at Wild Ginger! It was so great meeting Gabriela and Caronae for the first time, and seeing my friend Missy again! We were going to have a bigger group, but it was hard to get everyone together at one day and time as it was! Still, I almost prefer the smaller blogger meet-ups, so you really get a chance to talk to everyone and get to know people on a more personal level.
I got the spring rolls....
If you notice, they look different. While they were still good, I feel like Wild Ginger has greatly "cheapened down" their spring rolls! Now you get 3 mini ones instead of 2 big ones. They are still tasty, but their other ones were the BEST. Why must people mess with perfection?!?! Luckily the sauce was still the same. :)
I also got my favorite, their pineapple fried rice. Which thankfully, they did not change!
We forgot to take a group photo while we were still inside the restaurant, but Caronae asked someone to take a pic of all of us outside the restaurant (which again proves how NICE New Yorkers are!).

Afterwards I went to the Bowery Whole Foods like I usually do, and I found this amazing dessert that I had later that night.
A chocolate chip cheesecake blondie!
Earlier today I was up by the Herald Square area of Manhattan and stopped for lunch at Macy's Cellar Bar & Grill. The service is still not that great there, but the food is. I love the scenery in the restaurant too... they have different floats and artifacts from past Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade's.
In front of my table was this rocking horse float from a 1967 Thanksgiving Day Parade.
I got the penne caprese (which is basically penne in a tomato sauce with mozzarella).
And lets not forget who this blog is really about!
Now that he's a big boy now, notice that the little orange patch that he has on his chin has gotten darker? His coloring is more of a rich, ginger orange instead of a baby yellow-orange. :)
Here he is playing in my room today...
That's all for now! xo
