Happy Birthday, BAMOLA!

In Foodie, New York City, Restaurants, The Good Life on 5 September 2010 at 12:59 am

Yes, yes, my lil blog turned one today. For so long I have wanted to just post things that I ate and enjoyed. I have found that in creating and keeping this wonderful blog that I have come to appreciate many establishments in my city and in New York. I have come to settle for higher quality of foods going in my system as well as learn more and more about the restaurant business.

Also, my photography skills have inched up another level and I am very pleased with that. Some of the shots I have taken (and will eventually post) I am amazed with because the food wasn’t just food anymore. It became art and not just to my eyes but to others who observed my pictures as well.

Anyway, as one should do when celebrating, I’d like to thank my readers for coming by and scoping my shots and my quirkiness. I enjoy sharing my thoughts and humor with others because they usually get a good laugh or see something in a new light. I’d also like to thank BigHache for all the encouragement, camera techniques, and the nom. Without him I think my knowledge and taste buds would still be roaming around in the dark ages. I’d also like to thank 3M because without him at times I just wouldn’t be inspired to write or share my heart and passions. It has been my pleasure to crack him up! THANK YOU, guys!!!

Time for hearty soups!

Olive Garden Soup

Fall is rolling in and to me that means a couple of things: crisp air, hoodies, hot chocolate, and one pot meals! Mom usually starts making her organic chili filled with dark red beans, gorgeous stewed tomatoes, seared steak or ground beef, tons of Vidalia  onions, and maybe fresh celery. Man that sounds savory! She also fixes some buttered- up Jiffy cornbread!  Whoo yeah! I know, how “southern” of me. Whatever! We eats down here in da south!

The above is (er… was) an excellent bowl of Minestrone soup from Olive Garden. I rarely get to go there but when I do I usually order their Soup, Salad and Bread sticks deal. Seems the price went up but no matter! I know I will be full after downing two bowls of hot and yummy soup, four soft bread sticks and a bowl of salad with a couple of salty, black olives. Full to the max! I just took a peek at their menu, too. They have Pumpkin Cheesecake! Oh, baby! Maybe it is time to make a visit!

Do you have any traditions for the fall? What do you like to eat during this season? I want to try my hand at some nabe this year but we shall see.
