We got a shipment of ice cream from Florida-based Southern Craft Ice Cream this week. Expect a full report on it soon, but the short story is we really, really like it.

Few pizza parties are as good as a Prince Street Pizza party. The vegan, cheese-less, super-sauced pizza (for Kenji's sake) in the front was awesome.

The latest cat action from Erin Jackson!

"Here's Pixel supervising an ice cream photo shoot from her perch. My husband caught her in what looks like a moment of silent judgment, but she's probably just patiently waiting for her daily allotment of Greenies."

Kenji did some vegan waffling today, starting with falafel balls from Taim. ...They did not waffle well.

While walking around the Lower East Side today, I spotted these pizzas on the corner of Rivington and Essex Streets. And now I bring the sadness to you.
