Laid Back

Thank you Presidents for a great long weekend! It's so nice to be able to have a low key long weekend with Ben around. The weather in New York has been wonderful this winter and this weekend proved to be the same. If you need a quick weekend getaway, come up to the city since this coming weekend the temperatures might even get to 60 degrees. Not to mention that plane tickets are cheap. And if you make the trip make sure and go see the Broadway play How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying!  We saw it with some friends on Saturday night and it was great! It was surprisingly funny and for all you Jonas Brothers fans out there, Nick Jonas is the main character. (He took over Daniel Radcliffe's role after his few months were up.) There's singing, dancing, romance, and laughter. What more do you want in a play?

Besides getting dressed up for the show, we laid low this weekend. We ran by the Union Square farmer's market and picked up some veggies for a yummy veggie and polenta soup I made, taken from Giada De Laurentiis. I added a couple of ingredients and we haven't stopped eating it since. Here's her recipe. (I added sausage and mushrooms.)
Look at all those veggies! This is taken before the simmering begun so it hadn't thickened yet.
