Field Access!

24 Aug

The past several days have been a whirlwind to say the least!

There have been crazy thunderstorms, an earthquake, a Dragon Boat Race and, to top off the excitement, I got to meet the Yankees!

This past Saturday the Candlewood Lake Authority held their 3rd annual Dragon Boat Race in CT and I was part of 1 of the 18 teams to take part! It was a fun day of food, fundraising and rowing.  You’ll notice too in the picture below that Boat 1 is in first place… That was my team!!


Then on Tuesday, my family came to NY to visit and through a wonderful foundation called Project Sunshine we won the auction for Field Access tickets to Yankee Stadium. Growing up in New Jersey and my parents being from Queens, we are life long Yankee fans! To have Field Access was like a dream come true! I was able to meet my FAVORITE Yankee Nick Swisher who signed my shirt and gave me a hug! I was also able to meet, Joe Girardi and Francisco Cervelli and I even had the privilege to try on the 1996 World Series ring!!

And that was only Tuesday…

Now, to get back to the real reason you’re visiting, my baking!

A couple of weeks ago I made a Crumb Cake for my colleague Joe’s birthday at work. Well, my Dad’s two favorite things are Baklava and Crumb Cake and when he saw my post that week he was hoping for some left overs, but I have a pretty hungry office so unfortunately he didn’t get a piece. I felt pretty bad, so when I found out my family would be coming into the city for a couple of days I decided to surprise him with his very own tray of crumb cake!

I’m thinking my next treat will be salty, sweet and savory and I’m not even going to use an oven! Can anyone guess what it’ll be?? Check back soon!

    Yon – That’s crazy! The Dragon Boat Race was a lot of fun! Tiring, but fun! I did try her watermelon balls and they were fabulous! They’re along the same lines as my chocolate truffles which are in a previous blog entry. It looks like your trip to Iceland went really well!! Hope I get to see you soon!
