"The Chew" and More Chew Random Five Friday

After a busy, busy week it's happily time for Random 5 Friday, always a favorite part of my week. Without further ado...

1) I started Wednesday morning with an early on-time to see the "Katie Couric Show." I got there before my scheduled time, but the other people with tickets got there much earlier than I did and all the seats were taken. I was offered a ticket to "The Chew,"  and I happily took it. Sarah Evans cooked chicken with Chef Michael Symon. I sat in the row in back of the guests who got to sample the food and everything looked delicious.

2) Wednesday morning was an almost spring day and as I was walking on West 66th Street after the taping I saw someone who looked very familiar. All I could think was, "There goes the 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air,' and yes, in that moment I realized I was looking at Will Smith. It took place in the blink of an eye and I was too stunned to get my phone out for a picture.

3) I was filled with energy on Wednesday. I had just about forgotten how much more energized I am in nice weather. It was much easier to be up and out and around town on an almost spring day. Yesterday was twenty degrees and all I wanted to do was take a nap and drink tea.

4) I am in a spring cleaning and clearing mode and this weekend it's my shoes and boots. I'm dreaming of a neat closet floor.

5) I've gotten an idea to photograph food I see around New York City. I'm thinking of calling my food pictures, Delish in the City (#delishintheCity.) My inspiration were these pretty containers of all things, vegetable yogurt. I didn't buy them -- $2.99 a container -- but I did take pictures.

Blue Hill Tomato Yogurt and...

 ...Butternut Squash and Parsnip Yogurt. I did a double take at the flavors on the containers. 

Not bad for one week..."The Chew," Will Smith and Parsnip yogurt. What will next week bring?

As always, thanks for stopping by. Take very good care and have a great weekend.

It's always fun to go behind the scenes at the taping of a show. I never in my life would have dreamed of parsnip yogurt.

You had an eventful week. Very interesting yogurt!

My goodness - what an unusual five! My life is very ordinary compared to yours - no tv or film stars here, for sure - and no tomato yogurt. You've got to buy one of those flavors and report back - they don't sound too yummy to me.

Love the idea of Delish in the City but must pass on the veggie yogurt; just doesn't sound delish! Too bad about not getting the photo of Wil Smith but you have the moment to remember.

The yoghurt flavours are so interesting! I had to think about it, but I came to the conclusion that it may be tasty :)

I've watched the chew a few times on TV and have enjoyed it. That's as close as I'll ever come. Anyway glad you got to go . Too bad you missed the food tasting. I'll turn down those flavors of yogurt I like the fruity ones. Blueberry and Strawberry are my favorites.

Pricey yogurt! One time, years ago, we saw Mama Cass in Nashville! Such a surprise! One tends to forget how to photograph quickly.:)

You HAVE had a great week, Carol... Sorry that you couldn't get in at the Katie Couric Show--but I'm sure you enjoyed The Chew....

AND---getting to see Will Smith had to have been special...

Glad your weather is improving and that we all hopefully will have a marvelous spring.

Hugs,
Betsy

You're always having so much fun! My grandson Andrew loves Will Smith. In fact his son is Jayden too! LOL! I never see celebs anywhere! But you are always having a great sight seeing time in your fun city. Hugs, Anne

Spring cleaning and getting rid of things makes me feel lighter. I feel good when I can see space on the shelves and draws.
