Daniel Radcliffe, NYC and Lemon Gnocchi

I spent a wonderful day in New York City on Saturday. Surrounded by friends, I had lunch out and caught a great show starring Daniel Radcliffe ( of Harry Potter fame).

After the show we meandered about the city until finding a good Irish Pub for dinner.

Refreshed, we scrambled to make the train home and once home finished the day with late night snacks, cocktails and some laughter.

What would I do without the women friends in my life who continue to hold me up, scoot me along, hug me when necessary, recount good memories, discount the bad and generally remind me to keep breathing. All of this and a beautiful spring day.

Speaking of spring, it has been almost one year to the day since I last made this recipe: Gnocchi with Lemon Ricotta and Fresh Spring Peas.  Well I happened into my favorite small grocery store today and lo and behold they had the first batch of beautiful fresh English Peas.

Tonight is my night to cook for my women's dinner group and I'm going to make the Gnocchi, I may pronounce it No-Key in honor of TBHITW. More memories, good food and wonderful women to remind me of all life's blessings.

Bon Appetite and Happy Spring.


  1. I suppose that role isn't a very demanding one, if Radcliffe managed to carry it. He's cute, but he can't act his way out of a paper bag.

  2. Glad to know you had such a good time with friends. I hope you have many more.

  3. So nice to have a girls day out! I'm glad you were able to carpe diem (seize the day!), even though it might have taken a wee bit of a push to get going.

    Love your cheery yellow daffys. Can't wait until ours bloom, but we're way behind you. Ours are only just tiny shoots finding their way out of the earth.

  4. I love the daffodils and the lovely peas. I can almost taste them.

  5. No peas here. Hrmph. I'm so glad your friends are there. Just being there means so, so much.

  6. So happy to hear of your nice day in the City. Love this recipe - it practically shouts Spring!

  7. Marie said the play was great! lad you had a good time.

  8. So glad that you had a good day in the city and a dinner group to cook for. I bet they loved the no-key and peas. Happy Spring to you too. Take care.


Wow. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love feedback... what with being a cook and all. I will respond to your comments via email (if you do not have a "noreply" address or here, below your comment) As always, Bon Appetite!
