Ice cream time
Time for an ice cream taste test. Max had us try some vanilla ice creams for an upcoming post.
Not the hardest taste test of our lives
Dry ice fun
We received a package of ice cream we'd rather forget about. Sad. But on the upside it came with DRY ICE!!!! AW YEAH!!!!
That dry ice keeps on sublimating
Lunch in the kitchen
Niki brought in a bunch of leftovers from her cooking classes. Just some lobster à l'américaine, filet mignon, sous vide duck breast with foie gras, and potato gratin with duck confit, caramelized onions, and Gruyère. Good ol' light, healthy fare.
Editorial meetings are another reason to gather 'round the kitchen island.
Kenji brought in leftover taco ingredients (failed-but-still-delicious al pastor, chunks of roasted pineapple, and more) from a recipe in progress. We wish every day were taco day.
As part of her Slice duties, Niki is doing a lactose-free frozen pizza taste test. ...Sorry, Niki.
Robyn and her new baby sandwich
Here's Robyn carrying a huge sandwich from Parisi Bakery made of a loaf of lard bread stuffed with eggs and potatoes. Sandwiches made of Parisi's lard bread are good things.
"I need a nap." And with those words, Kenji grappled our giant stuffed bear and felt to the floor with a muffled splat. (Eh, it's Friday. Fridays are weird.)
Kenji getting cozy
Kenji death stare
To ward off anyone who might want to take the bear.
Kenji and bear, BFFs!
Robyn tried out the bear bed, too.
Niki, you're doing it wrong
Niki tried using the bear as a blanket. It did not work well.
Niki has no idea that she is about to be attacked by ultra-plushy, club-like paws.
Erin sent this photo from Ireland, where she's been hanging out with sheep and exploring the food scene. Stay tuned for more on her Irish eating adventures!
