Found a taker for the Otaku South tickets. Thanks, Bites!
Hope it's OK to post this; if not, apologies - would anyone be interested in two tickets to the Otaku South ramen event at the Stone Fox next Saturday (1/12)? They're for two seats at the 7-8 pm serving, which is sold out, and Brendan Canning from Broken Social Scene will be DJing.
Maybe you've never consciously thought, "Hey, I'd love to eat some well-made ramen while listening to music from a founding member of one of Canada's great indie rock bands" (or maybe you have?) but I'm guessing it'll be a really good event, and I'm very disappointed I can't go myself. I bought the tickets last month, but it turns out I have to be out of town next weekend.
Anyway, I guess my new New Year's resolution (ha) is to find someone who would be interested in buying the tickets. I paid $36 for them (fees included), but I'd definitely take less than that - email me at jnp310 at gmail dot com and name a price if you're interested. Thanks!
I saw a mention of the Whole30 Challenge, which centers around Paleo Diet ideas, on a blog a couple days ago, so I was reading up on it. (I think I have a knee-jerk negative opinion of the Paleo Diet because of its seeming trendiness - plus, the name "Paleo" bugs me for whatever reason - but I was attracted to the description of the challenge because I get weird stomach pains occasionally, and the description mentioned the challenge helping with that.)
If I'm being realistic, it wouldn't work for me, since I try to eat vegetarian as much as I can, plus, totally with you on the cheese, Jack. Still, I'm of the opinion that it might be good to incorporate at least some of the principles into what I eat, like the focus on vegetables that delaneymae mentions.
Mine aren't really *New Year's* resolutions, in that I've been trying to stick to them for the last couple of months, but I'm hoping for some sort of motivation boost by posting them online here. Don't know if it'll actually work like that, ha...
1) More meal-planning, especially for weekday lunches at work (and especially high-protein/high-fiber/preferably vegetarian meals that won't leave me feeling sleepy in the afternoon) (incidentally, anyone got any go-to ideas that fall under those categories? I'd love to hear them!)
2) More vegetables and fruits - I currently stick to a rule to eat at minimum one fresh piece of fruit per day, but I need to raise my standards
3) More one-pot meals - not having a dishwasher means that recipes that result in a bunch of dirty dishes make me cranky and less likely to want to cook regularly
4) Fewer impulse purchases at the grocery store/more list-making ahead of time
@ Wallace, Lesley, and Dana:
Thanks so much, you guys! I'm really excited to look into these. I'm feeling hungry just reading the descriptions.
And @Lesley: I'm still working out my accommodations, but I know there are sites I'll be visiting in midtown, Greenwich Village, and on the Upper West Side. I'll be there for a few days, though, so I'm hoping to have enough time to branch out a little more than that as well.
Also, my condolences to Chef Wilson.
I have a general question for Bites readers: I might get the chance to go to New York City in a few weeks, and I've never been before. Any places I should definitely seek out for food? I'll be by myself for most of the trip, so I'm especially interested in good lunch and/or casual places. I'm also keeping an eye out for good "green" restaurants as well as dessert places. But I'd love any general recommendations, really!
