Vive la Crepe!

by Ada on January 16, 2012

This evening I met my friend Sarah at our new neighborhood creperie for some dinner. I had just completed a challenging swim set (10x500s) and my depleted body definitely needed food asap.

Sarah selected the chicken, pesto, and gruyere cheese crepe, which she seemed to enjoy

while I went with a spinach, mushroom, and tomato sauce one. As a crepe virgin, I don’t have a baseline comparison, but I certainly did enjoy this and loved the crispy bits around the edges.

During our meal one of the staff came up to us and requested we download the restaurant’s app, which I found a bit off-putting. We are certainly in the year 2012! ┬áPer usual, it was so nice to catch up with Sarah:)

Yesterday I returned home from a difficult swim practice feeling rather ill (still catching up after last week’s terrible stomach virus) and decided to spend the evening at home. I quickly assembled a lamb stew containing onions, garlic, shallots, tomatoes, turnips, and squash, which I left simmering on the stove for two hours.

Served with red wine, the perfect winter meal.

Alrighty, I’m off the investigate the strange sound emanating from my bedroom wall. I can’t decide if my neighbor is birthing an oversized fetus or if a bloodhound is howling. Actually, maybe I don’t want to know.

(For the record, we visited the Upper West Side location, not the one listed below)

Weird, I was at a cafe/my yoga studio right next to the viva la crepe that’s near union square earlier today! I have never eaten there. I had an amazing nutella crepe at this place in France this summer, which was pretty awesome.

I’m a swimmer myself. Just curious how many minutes do you swim each day and do you include a rest day for yourself? :)

Hey Kim, Thanks for reading my blog! I swim anywhere from 90 to 120 minutes per day. I usually swim about 6 days per week, with one day completely off.

WOw, no wonder you’re tired. How do you refuel yourself?

We share the same foods, except for the chocolate. :)

Btw, what’s your preferred water temperature? Do you swim on campus?
