So, I witnessed a torrential downpour last night that was so wild and windy that water was shooting out from manhole covers like a geyser. It was awesome, but slightly frightening when the tornado watch notifications popped up on my phone. I'd been shopping earlier in the day and I bought a rain coat - talk about good timing. 

The rain started when we were on our way to a jazz set with Chick Corea's trio at the Dakota. Since this is a food blog, I feel I should tell you that I had the weirdest and most interesting cabbage rolls at the show - they were vegetarian and full of cruciferous veggies and mushrooms and then topped in a cream fraiche sauce. I chased it with a root beer float, but let's focus on the fact that I ate a relatively healthy main course! hah. 

Thankfully, by the time we left the rain was just a little drizzle and today the sun is bright, bright, bright. I'm off to go blueberry picking today - hopefully I'll have a bucket or two of blueberries for me and a few photos for you by the end.
