More Than a Few Reasons the Scale Isn't Cooperative

Try and I do, reaching lifetime goal in Weight Watchers some days seems a very distant dream. There seems to be a yummy temptation around every corner of New York City. Please take a walk down Broadway with me and I'll give you a few examples.  

Only five blocks from my building was this temptation. I love the color and the menu was even more irresistible. Although I resisted the praline croissants sounded delicious. 

Everything looked as good as it sounds on the menu.

I turned around and this fun facade greeted me. I had never heard of the company, but the website said they specialize in "bite-sized stuffed cupcakes." The little cupcakes are about the size of a quarter and look so good. In the interest of journalism I will be paying a visit as soon as they open. I need to get pictures to share with you and I will have to do a few taste tests so that I can report on the product. The things we do for our blogs and blog friends! 
   Reviews to follow!

On my way back home it was street fair time and that always has food temptations. This booth looked yummy. But something a little more exotic caught my eye and I decided to try some Thai food. The chicken satay with peanut sauce tasted great, though the Thai iced coffee was a little too sweet for my taste.

Hope you enjoyed our walk. As always, I wish all of my blog buddies could join me!

MMmm deliciousness on every corner, your blog budies have the same wish!!




I would have had to spring for the lobster and then praline croissants for dessert. Food on every corner sounds too good to be true. Did I hear you mention chicken satay with peanut sauce. My flight leaves within the hour. I'm coming for a visit, Buttercup.

My scales hardly ever balance. After all there is so much good food out there. Street fairs are wonderful things, but one can only do so much. It would have been nice to try one of each they all look so good. Hope your Friday is a wonderful one!

I don't know about this Gourmet Street Food thing- Now you don't even have to open the door to the restaurant to get those delicious calories. And I don't even need a flight the Number 7 train will do!

I always remember the smell of hot pretzels and chestnuts from the street vendors around Christmas time in NYC. That was about 40 years ago. Do they still sell the hot chestnuts?
