MIMM Heaven On A Plate

by naneraday on March 2, 2015

Friiiiiends!  Let’s rewind a few things MIMM style, shall we?  Its been a minute and Ive got a lot of yumminess to share.

-Last Tuesday

I hopped on the train to the city to spend the day with Nat, Jackson, and her mom, Patty, and as soon as they scooped me up from the train we headed to The Little Goat Diner

seriously heaven

Holy hell that place is good.  Nat and I each got the tuna melt and it was seriously unlike any other tuna melt I’ve ever had before, so many layers of flavor I was in heaven.

After bumming with them for awhile, I had to get ready to head to an event at the Fairmont Hotel.  They have a completely kosher menu that was the star of the show and I completely forgot how gorgeous the hotel is.  The event was held in the penthouse suite of the hotel which warranted absolutely breathtaking views of the city. All of the food was fabulous but I particularly loved the sushi rolling station.

talk about freshly rolled

I’m not a total fan of raw fish so I went with a veggie roll consisting of cucumber, jalapeño, avocado and mango.  Loved the sweet mango especially when I drenched in it with spicy wasabi and soy sauce.  So good.  Fun Fact: When Mike and I first started dating he always wanted to order sushi and I would basically just gag it down.  LOL growing up in the country sushi wasn’t something I’d ever had and heaven forbid I be uncool and tell him.

Of course I can never pass up a sweets table either.

plate of heaven

-Oyster Season

I have always been a big time fan of oysters rockafeller but Parkers took my have dish to a whole new level with these plump, in season beauties.

Migs and I couldn’t get enough and I think its safe to say we will be popping back in over there before the season is done.  Definitely go if you are local!


He’s quite the snuggler minus when he’s rolling around on his back like a maniac.



Eats and Treats

by naneraday on February 25, 2015

Today was a good day my friends.  I was the first Wednesday in a long time that I didn’t have to wake up and go, go, go.  I have sadly made the decision to call it quits with my nanny peeps and tomorrow is my last day.  As much as I’m sad because I know I will miss the entire family, I am so excited to finally be able to focus all my time and energy on yoga and writing.  I am so excited to dive back into this little blog of mine.  Well enough about that, let’s take a look at my eats today shall we?


Breakfast came two parts.  First up, a super sweet cara cara while I waited for Jojo to pick me up to make a coffee run

hey little cutie

Followed by a sesame and shallot bagel that I toasted and topped with grass fed butter.  I couldn’t resist these beauts at yesterdays visit to Little Goat Diner and Bakery.  

full of fresh flava

So so good.


One on my faves was today’s snack of choice which was clearly eaten in my jammies

baby you're so classic

An organic golden delicious apple topped with cinnamon with a side of crunchy peanut butter.


dilla dilla baby

Leftover sauteed chicken, onion and peppers stuffed into a quesadilla.  I nabbed some spelt flour tortillas at Whole Foods and they were fab!  Inside the dilla was stuffed with cheese, the chicken mixture and avocado slices.  I dipped the beast in a throw together of a scoop of full fat greek yogurt and some salsa.  So so good.


Post yoga snacks was an unpictured yogurt parfait.  Vanilla yogurt topped with blackberries, naner slices, and some of my homemade granola.


I can not even tell you the last time I made fish but I saw some wild caught cod on sale at Whole Foods so I went with it.  I cooked it in a sea of melted butter, lemon, fresh chopped garlic, black pepper, and capers.  Some spicy maple glazed carrots on the side.  Yumcity!


Migs randomly texted me with a few cupcake options early today some a vanilla cupcake topped with chocolate frosting went down the chute while we caught up on DVR.

Time to get ready for bed!

Recipe Rundown: Eggoats

January 29, 2015

As if I didn’t think I could love oatmeal more, I discovered eggoats. Simply adding an egg to your oatmeal adds so much staying power not to mention  a rich, creamy texture.  I highly recommend you make it on the stovetop but its so much creamier but I do it on the fly in the [...]

Tell It All Tuesday: DIY Fails

January 13, 2015

Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news but my super brilliant idea to spray paint the kitchen cabinet knobs at Brunos has decided to back fire on me. Now I haven’t seen the damage with my own two eyes but Migs crushed my soul when he told me that it was starting [...]
