Happy Monday, Noshers! I know I’ve been a bit MIA lately – things have been a little hectic in the NoshGirl world! But I am SUPER excited to be attending New York Taste 2013 this evening – I’m totally going to stop by Dominque Ansel’s table tonight and ask for my cronut (ha! a girl can dream). I’ll be live-tweeting and posting photos from the event, so if you’re not following me on twitter or instagram yet, what are you waiting for?
Today’s post is a bit random – recently a Nosher asked me via twitter what I eat for lunch every day. I wish I could tell you I have fantabulous five-course lunches every day, but a rushed (hopefully delicious) meal, eaten at my desk anywhere between 12pm and 4:30pm is more the reality. I’m not the only one, right? But Noshers ask, and NoshGirl delivers – below is a photo-summary of a work-week of lunches:
Pret-a-Manger sent me a few gift cards to check out their fall soups – so of course I had to try their Mac & Cheese with Sausage. Okay…that’s not really a soup….at all. But it was found in the soup section, so that counts right? Aaaaanyway, I’m sticking with it – with cheddar, Monterey jack, Gouda, and Italian sausage, this mac & cheese was hearty and filling. Supplemented with a yogurt and granola pot because I loooove yogurt and granola. Crisp clear photo courtesy of the HTC One I’m trying out for a few weeks, on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network!

As you likely know by now, I had a simply FABULOUS time at the New York City Wine & Food Festival, especially as a Progresso Artisan Ambassador. (Check out my recap here). Today I’m sharing my experience sampling the actual Progresso Artisan soups – there are five varieties so far, and I heard from my Progresso sources that there may be more in the works. (My vote: mushroom bisque, mushroom bisque!). The soups are great for those weeknights where I come home late and just need to spend some quality time on the couch – I know I’m not the only one, right?? I just heat them on the stove for a few minutes and they are good to go. You have to give me credit for using the stovetop instead of my microwave – I’m classy like that.
Aaaaanyway, on to the soups!
The first variety I sampled was the Smoky White Bean and Winter Vegetable: Continue reading »
TGIF, Noshers! I’m so glad it’s Friday – I just love the weekends! (Who doesn’t, right?). I have some appropriately autumn-y weekend plans ahead of me, and I will also be attending the last day of the NYC Food Film Fest! What do you have on the agenda this weekend?
Today’s Fun Fact is full of guilty pleasure:

Today is National Greasy Foods Day.
What?? I didn’t even know that was a thing. Apparently it is. What will you be eating to celebrate?
I’m not a supermarket extraordinaire, I just play one on tv.
Not that I’m complaining, but I can’t believe it’s Thursday already – this week flew by for me! I’m still living off the excitement of attending the NYC Wine & Food Festival this past weekend (check out my Chicken Coupe recap from yesterday). While I’m super exhausted and see a long weekend nap in my future, it was SO MUCH fun. What made it the most fun of all was attending the festival as a Progresso Artisan Ambassador as well as courtesy of Buick! I had some great chef celebrity sightings, met some truly fabulous fellow Ambassador/bloggers (hello Food And the City, Beauty and the Feast, Nutmeg Nanny, and NYC Talon!), and made some silly faces for random giveaways. While I might not have won a trip to Napa, I ate a ton – so almost even Stevens…right? For a few highlights, keep reading… Continue reading »
Phew! But can I make the title of this post any longer, that’s the real question.
PB&J drumsticks?? Yes, please.
Happy Hump Day, Noshers! Today I’m super excited to share my re-cap of the New York City Wine & Food Festival event I attended last Friday – the Chicken Coupe presented by Time Warner Cable! This delicious event was hosted by Whoopi Goldberg and featured a private (and I later learned from attendees – surprise) performance by JOHN LEGEND! The event featured drumsticks upon wings of friiied chicken, plus tons of dessert dishes, non-chicken sides and a free-flow of beverages. In addition to PB&J wings and talking chicken with Whoopi, I admit one of the high points of the evening was being right near the stage during John’s performance and actually having to lean back to take a photo. Is this real life??
For some highlights, including my Whoopi and John sightings, keep reading. Continue reading »
