a picnic along the tribeca waterfront.


my gorgeous (and unbelievably talented) friend, erica lives in tribeca with her clark-kent-of-a-husband, chris. (i blogged about their wedding, here).

oh, tribeca! to live in tribeca where the air is fresh and the crowds are sparse! (and the rent is sky-high).

they live there (at a great price, as luck would have it) in a single bedroom (in a hotel). the catch is..
there's no kitchen.

this would deter most.
not erica.
she cooks. without the kitchen.
and when i say cooks, i mean...really cooks.

erica being brilliant (as she is) has created a kitchen-of-sorts in the bathroom and a blog to go along with it.

today we met up in union square which (while i'm not really a fan of because of the huge crowds) has a massive and versatile greenmarket. and from there we headed home and the cooking began.










what i really love about erica's take on food is that she's adventurous about simplicity. and she believes in educating herself about what it is she's eating and why it's good for her.

i'm starting to think there's nothing like a time outdoors, good food, and girl-talk (intelligent girl-talk, at that!).

to see why i gush about this girl check out her very new and very exciting foray into blogdom.

wow! she is so cool! i would cook in the bathroom too if it meant living in tribeca, but i doubt i would end up with a masterpiece like that. or anything even close.

I can barely cook in a kitchen, the fact that Erica is cooking what look like beautiful meals in her bathroom just blows my mind! Amazing.

That's amazing. I can't even imagine not having a kitchen and I don't even like cooking all that much. The fact that she can create all that w/o even having a kitchen just blows my mind. What's my excuse?
