Sliding with Sliders: Emergency Meal

You've probably noticed that many of my dishes are either seafood or vegetarian in nature. Well I break with this tradition here. The truth is that , while I am not a huge fan of meat, if I see a good or interesting cut, it will sometimes end up in my shopping cart.

Walking the aisles earlier today , I came across some very fresh looking, small trays of ground meat, already modeled into well-formed slider sized burgers. That inspired me. I knew  the fan club had to eat, and knew that there were extra mouths to feed as well.

Dinner therefore became:

Mini burgers, topped with white cheddar 
Pickled Okra, Tomato salsa
Mesclun salad with white balsamic vinaigrette 

Slider Plate

Tomato Okra Salsa

Washed a few of these down with a nice Belgian beer.

Good eats, my friends.

But my highlight for the day  was for me and my Queen to head down to Chinatown in NYC.  Our plans: do some food shopping , correction some "window" food shopping and course,  just take in as much we could of the Chinatown scene. Given that Little Italy is also right next door to Chinatown, we would stop there too. If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown  nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors.  Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.

The plan worked out. So do read on.
