In January my family(me, my wife and 2 kids) are moving to NJ from DC, and we are looking for some good local places to try out.
We don't have the area finalized yet, but we are looking at Montclair or Florham Park.
We've never been to NJ before and only have been to NYC a couple of times.
We'd like to find good Thai, Chinese, Japanse, Indian and breakfast places. And ideally places that are good for young kids(5 year old and 1 year old). We don't care about Italian(I'm Italian and do all the cooking :P) or Filipino(that would be her ;)).
Also if anybody knows of a good Italian market and a good Asian market in those NJ areas that would be super!
My wife just found out she is pregnant with our 2nd(yay!).
Because diabetes runs in her family, both parents and 3 outta 4 grandparents, her Dr wants her to be on a low carb and high calorie diet. I think her calorie total is 2300-2400 I think.
Right now, she has eggs with guacamole for breakfast, almonds during the day, sometimes yogurt and a grilled chicken breast with salsa, cheese and guacamole for lunch.
Because I'm Italian and she is Asian we used to use a lot of rice and pastas with our meals which I am going to have to cut back on. I'll still make them, just not as much. So I'm trying to find some new meals that will be good for her.
I told my wife the other day I wanted to get some graham crackers so I can have them as a snack with a little butter spread on them.
She immediately recoiled and expressed her disgust at such a horrible idea in her mind.
When I was growing up this was a popular snack in our house. Am I just weird, or has anybody else heard of this? (and enjoys it)
