Banana Dessert!

One of my favorite and quick desserts to make. Lightly fry 1 banana in Olive or Coconut Oil. Place the bananas on top of your favorite ice cream. I had some leftover walnuts and syrup that I just drizzled over. Be creative and add your favorite toppings,YUM!!!!!!!

Happy Mother's Day!!!! MOLOS RESTAURANT

For Mother's Day I wanted to take my mom out to eat something good and different. Molos Restaurant is a high end Greek restaurant that sits on the water overlooking NYC in Weehawken. The views were amazing and the food was so good, I was stuffed and tipsy when we left. 

My cocktail called burnt orange was very very good, because it was very very strong. 

My mom orders the Lamb Shank with tomato herb orzo and I ordered the Snapper Filet which had potatoes, feta cheese and tomatos on the bottom (which made it very filing). I tasted my mothers lamb and it was so delicious, the meat was so tender it was falling off the bone. 

For our appetizer we both orders stuff shrimp with Maryland Crabmeat, it was scrumptious! 

For dessert my mom had the honey walnut cake with gelato and fruit! The Gelato was my favorite, it tasted like cream cheese ice cream. I literally had a small bite of the cake and fruit because I was so stuffed from my meal. 

Overall Molo's was great, expensive but I would definitely go again and I would recommend anyone looking for a delicious Greek cuisine

Snack: Cheese Spread

I hadn't seen my BFF in a long time so I wanted to make us a nice spread with some wine. I got grapes, crackers, cheese, turkey and hummus. Everything was bought from Trader Joes. P.S. I'm totally obsessed with Trader Joes Fig and Olive Crackers, they are just addictive, delicious and they go with anything. 

Restaurant: Lips Drag Queen Show

Dessert: Banana Dumplings

I'm obsessed with bananas! This day I saw a similar recipe for banana spring rolls. I did not have the spring roll paper so I opted to make dumplings instead. I just put sliced bananas, cinnamon and a dash of sugar inside these small square dough sheets, fry until brown on both sides, then serve with ice cream! So so good!!!!!!

Dinner: Chicken Pasta and Veggies

Had s taste for spaghetti, but wanted protein and veggies too. I made sort of a chicken parm mix (without the cheese) and steamed some fresh Brussels yummy and quick! 

Thai: Duck Pad Thai

Decided to try a new spot near Penn Station. I hadn't had Duck in a very long time, decides to treat myself and it was yummy!
