The Crazy Suburban Mom: I'm home!

I'm home!

It took me a day to post because I had to unpack.  Okay.  Lie. Lie. Lie.  Big Lie.  It took me a day to post because I had to nap for,  like 24 hours.  I was exhausted!  Going to New York was very exciting.

Times Square, Intercontinental Hotel View

The view from my room was exciting....

The Intercontinental New York Hotel, Times Square...

Intercontinental Hotel Times sqaure Lobby


And amazingly lovely.  More on that later.

The food?  Well look....


If you are ever in New York and can stand the excitement, the Wild Striped Bass at Bar Americain is so good I'm going to have to describe it in French because English pales for me so here goes, c'est magnifique, et...le mieux est formidable.

Okay.  I'm tapped for French superlatives. Many pardons to anyone who speaks French.  I assume you know what I was trying to say even though I'm sure I said it grammatically um ...pas bien.


Exciting, plus wow.   That's a wall they have.  Sort of consumer clunker's over the years, behind glass. A, hmmm....wall of shame time line.  I did not tell them how many of the clunkers I own, and I'm not even kidding.

I did tell them I had NO IDEA how much research they did and would be reading Good Housekeeping from now on.

The Unilever Test Kitchens were just amazing and that has to be a whole separate post.  I can't believe I cooked there.  And near as I could tell there were no garbage disposals in case what I made needed to go down one of them.

Like happens at home. Frequently.

Maybe there were disposals around but I couldn't bring myself to ask in front of the test kitcheners and the other bloggers I went with who clearly were fine with cooking there and had no need for garbage disposals.

Those ladies were amazing! They put on their aprons and started cooking and it involved no sweating or wondering where to throw the failures or anything.  I was awed; just awed by them.

The other really exciting thing was there was a bathrobe in my hotel closet...


and this is me an hour after check in.

Now that's exciting.

Too funny, you in the bathrobe as soon as you locked the door!

I would've napped for a long time too to restore and recoup from all the excitement!

I grew up on the Good Housekeeping, it was a 3 generation thing in my family. Every time my mom made a good recipe, it was from the latest GH issue.
I can't wait to read about you cooking in the Unilever test kitchens. Have a great evening
