Ice Cream Sandwiches, the Highline & Black Olive Pesto!

by Nicole on August 5, 2011

Yesterday Danny and I both took the day off, well except for blogging and 1 health counseling client, but it basically was the majority of the day off.

We went for a run in the morning and at a cool 68 degrees it was so gorgeous out. I felt like I could actually breathe because there was no humidity. It was SO nice to be out. It’s runs like that, that make me thankful to be running again. I don’t take for granted the fact I’m able to go out and run 5 miles.

Later on in the day we went to the high line in Manhattan. Danny has wanted to see it for awhile. It’s an old railroad track that a non-profit re-did to make it a beautiful walkway filled with greenery, a path to walk on and sights to see.

Plus there was an ice cream truck that had homemade ice cream sandwiches. You pick the type of cookie and ice cream you want and they make it right there! It was DELICIOUS!

I also got to meet up with the beautiful Erica. We chatted, caught up and then I got my inspirational necklace from her. So excited to wear it proudly.

When we got home I was pretty hungry, despite our mid afternoon cool snack. It had to be a quick dinner to calm my hunger beast. I’ve been experimenting with tempeh, so I whipped that out and took out my black olive pesto again. Basically I used it on Wednesday night’s salmon dinner, my lunch yesterday AND dinner. It’s that good.

Lesson: this can be used basically in any meal or dish and taste delicious. Tacos, salmon, salads, anything. Do it!

Next on the agenda in cabinet clean out is to make Angela’s no oil pesto!

Have a wonderful day!

Sounds like an absolutely wonderful day! Love fitting in an outdoor run when it is nice out!

So cool they make homemade ice cream sandwiches!

I agree, Angela’s no oil pesto is calling my name too! Happy weekend!

I’m intrigued by the pesto- I don’t love black olives, but this sounds rich and delicious at the same time. I like to experiment with dips/ spreads like this, you can’t really go wrong!
