hippie audrey

hello! happy friday! it's my first of two days off, and i have been enjoying it to the fullest - i slept until noon, made a very decadent breakfast, and have spent the rest of the day cleaning and baking. tonight it's homemade banh mi sandwiches, so i've got baguettes rising as we speak and thought i'd take the time to do a quick post.

starting wednesday: work, then i did my best to re-create my favorite dish from a sushi restaurant in chicago where i used to work. their carrot-king crab soup is absolutely delectable, and one of the best things i've ever eaten, but i don't live in chicago anymore, and the restaurant is actually not open anymore, and regardless, even when it was, they served it in a tiny espresso cup and it was never enough to satiate my hunger for it. so i made sam and i big old bowls of it, along with some scallion pancakes that we cut open and stuffed them with fake chicken, cilantro, and carrots. we ate the scallion pancakes too fast for photos, but the carrot soup: (recipe soon to come. it wasn't a perfect replica, but pretty damn good.)

next, thursday. i have a pretty constant ramen craving. ippudo, near NYU campus, is delicious, but a little pricey and the wait is always insane; so sam made us drinks and i made us some ramen, cheating a little by using some pre-made noodles, but i added mushrooms, bok choy, corn, cabbage, soft boiled eggs, and fake steak. it was DELICIOUS. definitely a make-again.

and that brings us to today. the decadent breakfast. eggs on a motorcycle, chive-asiago cream, skillet fried potatoes, and fake canadian bacon. for the record, i am not a vegetarian but seem to have been tricked into almost becoming one.

i compensate by cooking everything in lots of butter. tomorrow i have big plans for french toast with homemade blackberry syrup, fresh strawberries, and creme anglais.

anyway! lots of home improvement to return to, and as i do so, i wear:

tunic: thrifted
slip: thrifted
headband: tiny fabric store in south brooklyn
necklace: blue beri
pants: anthropologie
shoes: 80%20

i am absolutely in love with this tunic. i never get to wear white, since i cook so much and i'm a pretty messy/clumsy person by nature, but if i'm being honest with you guys i've worn this thing after coming home from work for the last three days. i feel ethereal in it. i feel like it gives me the illusion of a less pale person. i love it.

with that, i'll leave you to your weekend. i will be bake with an etsy update and all that jazz tomorrow. be well!

  1. i love your posts about food + perfect together!


  2. The tunic is beautiful! It looks so delicate!

    Also, which sushi resturant?? I want to see if it is my sushi resturant (which is Coast on Damen although Triad in the south loop follows closely behind).

    I also love the comment on being a sort-of vegetarian. This would explain me as well!

  3. i can see why you love the tunic, it is absolutely darling.

    Living in a house with my vegan sister often I find things will have been changed and with out noticing I tend not to eat a lot of meat, i love my cheese and eggs though so those are staying!

  4. so many yummy foods! i love ramen and eggs on a motorcycle (my mom called it toad in the hole, but i like that too!). jeez you eat good! i need to do up some good ramen like that. and the carrot soup sounds yummy too!
