Well this was such a busy weekend. On top of the studying that I’m trying to accomplish for next week’s finals, Moz was over this weekend. I haven’t seen her in a few months because of school and all so it was a lot of fun.

The first event we tackled was the McQueen for a Night event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. My friends and I were all expecting the Met to be closed down for the college group specifically, but that didn’t happen. Dressing up eccentrically was a lot of fun even if we got a lot of odd looks on the way there. I really love playing dress up and putting on an obscene amount of make-up. There were loads of people there for the Met event and it really could have been more enjoyable if there were less people. Oh well.

The highlight of the night would have to be the Digital Photobooth that they set up. Of course we all took a bunch of silly pictures!

I have a new favorite place for dessert: momofoku milk bar.

After planning some places to go for dinner tonight with Moz, we started looking up the various momofoku restaurants. I’ve known about the milk bar for a while now, but I’ve never had a chance to go. After looking at menus for an hour, it became imperative that I go there last night.

With the company of Jack, Cindy, and Eric, we braved the cold and walked down to 13th St and 2nd Ave. The trip was worth it. I got to try their famous cereal milk soft serve which tasted a lot like the milk left over after you eat a bowl of cornflakes. For me, it could have been sweeter, but it was a very yummy experience nonetheless.

I got a compost cookie to go and it is fantastic. While typing away on this blog post, I am devouring said cookie (along with milk stolen from the community fridge; I sincerely hope it isn’t poisoned). The combination of potato chips, coffee, oats, pretzels, butterscotch and chocolate chips sounded like it could taste really disgusting or taste heavenly. Well, in this case, this is the best cookie I’ve ever had the chance of eating (Jacques Torres’s chocolate chip cookie may be a close second; we’ll have to go for a head-to-head competition to figure it out, I think).

I will be savoring every last bite of my cookie, but I may have to come back again tonight just for more.

We had an epic feast this past Sunday at our dorm. Everyone was required to bring something, preferably to cook. I ended up making a dessert: cinnamon apple puff pastry with creme anglaise – a recipe that I learned last year in my culinary elective! I did not think it would take so long to cook, but when cooking for about a dozen people, it ends up taking a while. The creme anglaise I made on Saturday, which took about two hours to make two batches. The puff pastry took a while to make since I had to bake a dozen. With prep and cooking time, it took three hours. But you know what? All the effort was worth it because dinner was amazing.

Gold stars to Patrick & Kelly, the floor chefs, who made a wonderful turkey for us to feast on.
