WIAW #48

And we're back with another WIAW!

Or perhaps I should say WIAINYC? 

Nah, that sounds weird. 

Well whatever - this is What I New York City! (Spoiler alert: nothing healthy! Whoops.)

Delicious mac n cheese from Macbar
Mac Quack w/ duck confit, caramelized onions, fontina cheese, and "fines herbes."

You only have two beer options here: light or dark. I went for light!

The Meatball Shop was fabulous! Great food and super reasonable prices.
Chicken cordon bleu slider, classic meatballs with classic red sauce, cheesy polenta, and a snickerdoodle & brown sugar ice cream sandwich.

Brunch at East L.A. in Hoboken, NJ
Huevos Con Chorizo: chorizo & cheesy scrambled eggs, rice, refried beans, tortilla, side of avocado. And a super strong mango margarita.

Brick oven pizza topped with black olives! <3

Bagels & Schmear (Am I the only one who thinks the word 'schmear' sounds gross?!)
New York-style everything bagel with jalapeno cream cheese. 

Lots of different flavors of Pez from the factory tour in Orange, CT.

More pizza, this time from BAR in New Haven, CT
Mashed potato, bacon, and onion pizza. Heaven!

I was in a serious carb-coma after this weekend. 

Bring on the veggies!


  1. Yum. That brick oven pizza is totally calling my name. When I was kid, my brother and I would fight over whichever pizza slice had the most "bubbles."

    1. Lol love it! My mom and I both love the bubble pieces too :)

  2. The pizza looks incredible...I love black olives. I can't even speak at the sight of the mac n'cheese... ;-)

    1. Me too - they're my favorite pizza topping! I was stunned at how many people don't like 'em!

  3. Wow, what a weekend. It all looks great, and I'd like to jump head first into that bowl of Pez. I used to pop them like there was no tomorrow.

    1. It was definitely a fun throwback eating Pez again! They tasted even better fresh from the factory!

  4. We are nearby in RI. I think my daughter would love the Pez factory tour.

    1. Definitely recommend it! It was a fairly quick stop (about an hour) but it was a lot of fun. Tons of dispensers, a wall of history, view of the factory floor, and of course, candy! So bright and cheerful, too :)

  5. See this is what scares me... how could I ever say no to any of these foods.... I mean seriously I LOVE food... better if I never go to NYC,,, or anywhere really, lol.

    Seriously though, I don't blame you for one second for enjoying your food... CHEERS girl. I am drooling over all your good eats.

    Yes, bring on the veggies, lol.

    So glad I stopped by! Have a great day girl :)
    P.s. After coming back from an extended blogging break, I've started a 40 day challenge to get HEALTHY by my birthday. If you get a chance to check it out, I could sure use the support!
    Hugs, Bella :)
    Bella's 40 Day Challenge

    1. I'm with you on the loving food...hence my epic pig out! Lol whoops! ;)

      And I thank you for coming by! Will definitely be hopping on over to your blog and checking out your challenge - which I'm betting you'll do great with!

  6. I love Grimaldi's—haven't been in ages. I keep meaning to go to the meatball shop but still haven't made it. Your posts makes me want to put it near the top of the list!

    1. It was my 1st visit - definitely some yummy pizza! And you *absolutely* gotta check out the Meatball Shop! SO good and very affordable! I'm hoping to write a post about it in the next week, so head on back if you're interested :)

  7. mmmm it all looks so yummy. Hope you had fun!
