Saturday in the City

Yesterday we spent the day in our favorite place...The City. We love to just go out and wander the city. We didn't get out until later than planned but still made it down to the galleries in Chelsea for about and hour an a half before they closed. Our favorite exhibit was the first one we stepped into at the Gagosian Gallery, 555 W 24th St. The show is from Robert Therrien and I loved it! It was so fun.

We felt like it was our opportunity to look at things from Isabella's perspective. I wasn't allowed to take photographs but the exhibit was much better that the photo above. We walked into this room with HUGE card tables and folding chairs that we could easily walk under. It is something to experience. Absolutely loved it!

The show just opened on May 9th and goes until June 14th.

Milking It

Last Thursday I went with my friend, Ashley, to the Greenmarket at Columbia (our closest farmers market). Ashley had been telling me all the wonderful things about organic milk. She had started buying Ronnybrook's milk from the market. I decided to give it a try. It is quite pricey, but I have all sorts of reasons for wanting to try least once.
1--Buying local is ideal.
2--The glass jugs are returned and reused=no waste.
3--I swear it tastes better out of a glass jug--it is chilled so perfectly.
5--Family history--My Grandpa Larsen owned and operated a dairy.
6--Their chocolate milk is the best I've ever had. It is amazing!
7--I'm buying directly from the dairy so there are no distributors or excessive use of fuel. And the dairy gets all the money. I like supporting that.
8--It is organic and about the same cost as buying organic milk in the grocery stores (if you return the milk jugs @ $1/each).
9--The milk I buy in NYC is sometimes bad within two days. I don't think the stores keep it chilled properly.
