Tavern On The Green – New York Restaurant Week 2018

Tavern On The Green is one place I always wanted to check out because it carries so many fames. My friends always recommend me to go there. But as you all know, New York really spoils me because of too many choices.

But I won’t miss the opportunity any more at this time! My parents’ friends are visiting New York, the first welcome lunch – I chose to go Tavern On The Green. Especially I can bring them to try the wonderful deal for the restaurant week. Also the restaurant locates at Central Park, they must feel so happy to enjoy the meal at this amazing park for the first time traveling in New York.

Let’s enjoy the meal now!

Starting from the Appetizers.

As we are a big group, we tried everything!

Everything is very tasty, and my favorite is GRILLED PORTOBELLO MUSHROOM FLATBREAD. But be careful, it is a very big Appetizer!

Let’s go Entrees now~

We also tried everything, but sorry I forgot to take the photo of Risotto. Everyone enjoyed the meal so much. I can’t say which one is better because they are all perfect.

We ordered two extra dessert because we have a kid on the table. He super loves the cheese cake dessert.

About the history of Tavern on the Green:

Originally designed by Calvert Vaux, Tavern on the Green was built as a sheep fold in the 1880’s to house the 700 Southdown sheep that grazed in Central Park’s Sheep Meadow. Robert Moses transformed the building in to a restaurant in 1934, as part of his park renovation. Through the next few decades, Tavern underwent several changes in management, but the iconic view of the park, and the addition of a dance floor, outdoor seating, and lavish menu, kept prominent actors, musicians, and public figures coming back to the restaurant to dine, drink, and celebrate.

After a hiatus starting in 2009, the city searched diligently for a new operator to reopen the iconic restaurant in 2013. The city selected current owners and restauranteurs Jim Caiola and David Salama, previously of Philadelphia, who would bring a fresh, welcoming approach to Tavern. The duo renovated the restaurant with inviting décor and wood paneling reminiscent of the original sheep fold, and, with a seasonal menu more reflective of Greater New York, reopened Tavern on the Green in April 2014.

Your Breast-Friend for Mommy-to-Be!

August as Breast Feeding Awareness Month and before I joined the pack to become a mom, I did not even think about it. I thought it is natural, easy and super straightforward right?

WRONG!  I didn’t realize that breastfeeding could be so challenging that there are actually people called LACTATION consultants that you can hire to help you.

Besides professionals and classes, there are also a lot of great products out there to help you.

No automatic alt text available.

The Lansinoh Breastfeeding pillow is like a pillow arm sleeve that props the baby up to the right position for feeding. It is handy and small enough to take with you in your diaper bag or travel. It has a minky soft fabric inside and a washable soft cotton on the outside. You can buy it here for $24.99

The Lansinoh Nursie Breastfeeding Pillow is comfortable, portable, and helps support proper breastfeeding positioning.

By sliding onto the arm, rather than around the waist, the thoughtful design is perfect for c-section tummies and one size actually fits all, regardless of shape and size. The Nursie allows mom to naturally bring baby up to the breast to nurse rather than leaning over, which is ideal for positioning, latch and avoiding back pain. As a small and lightweight nursing pillow, it is ideal for today’s on-the-go mom. Strollers, diaper bags and airplanes are no match for the small but mighty Nursie!

Upspring Milk Flow – Fenugreek + Blessed Thistle Chai Tea Latte Powder Drink Mix $17.99

A Tea-Riffic Way To Get Your Breast Milk Flowing
For years, moms have been going to great (although oftentimes not-so-great tasting) lengths to boost their breast milk supply, choking down bitter concoctions and making cumbersome cups of tea. UpSpring’s Milkflow Fenugreek + Blessed Thistle Chai Tea Latte, is the first and only chai latte-flavored fenugreek beverage, formulated to help boost breast milk supply.*
Milkflow Fenugreek + Blessed Thistle Chai Tea Latte Drink Mix can help:
  • If you’re trying to establish a sufficient breast milk supply for your baby
  • During baby’s growth spurts, if your milk supply can’t keep up with demand
  • When you want to increase pumping yields
  • When your baby needs more breast milk than you are currently producing
Why UpSpring Milkflow Fenugreek + Blessed Thistle Drink Mix?
  • Helps promote healthy breast milk supply*
  • Contains three known galactagogues (aka breast milk boosters) fenugreek, blessed thistle, and anise
  • Delivers 1,800 mg of fenugreek in each yummy chai tea latte flavored drink
  • Consume only 1-3 times daily
  • All natural, non-GMO, and gluten-free
  • Contains milk
  • Recommended by lactation consultants
More Breast Milk Boosters for Your Buck
Our new Millkflow resealable canister gives you 24 servings and comes with an easy-to-use single serve scoop. Each scoop contains a concentrated 10:1 fenugreek blend, giving you 1,800 mg of fenugreek plus Blessed Thistle and more in each serving.
How To Use Milkflow Chai Tea Latte
Mix one scoop in 8 oz of hot or cold milk, stir vigorously. Pour over ice for a refreshing pick-me-up or enjoy warm cozied up with your favorite mug and beautiful baby. No matter the weather, Milkflow Chai Tea Latte is the perfect companion for breastfeeding moms year-round. Milkflow contains dairy and soy but no gluten or GMO ingredients.

Upspring also makes a product called milkscreen for $19.99. If you ever go out for a drink or dinner and want to make sure it doesn’t get into your baby’s system – this is the best tool you can get that works in 2 minutes.  You can get it here! Drinking while breastfeeding can raise some questions. Are you throwing away breast milk unnecessarily? Are you giving your baby breast milk that has alcohol in it? Don’t guess, test! UpSpring Milkscreen, the first and only test of its kind, is an easy, 2 minute at-home test that detects alcohol in breast milk.
Voted one of the best baby shower gifts, this bottle is very unique and good for extra breastmilk feeding.

These T-Shirts are Raising Money for Celiac Disease Research

Summertime calls for BBQs, dining out, brunch with friends, and more. Summer and food seem to be intertwined, but what can be a fun experience for most can be a daunting experience for those with food allergies.

Meredith started the t-shirt brand Celiac Cutie to bring about fun, laughter and empowerment to those affected by an autoimmune disease, as well as other challenges. A portion of all t-shirt sales goes back to the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, where she personally found help after her diagnosis.

The Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University Medical Center is one of a few centers in the United States that provides comprehensive medical care, including nutrition, for adult and pediatric patients with celiac disease and is diagnosing and treating thousands of patients annually from around the world.

Celiac Disease is not curable, which means those affected by this disease will have to avoid eating gluten their entire lives.

Here are some quick facts about Celiac Disease and why we should all work to give back to those affected by this autoimmune disease:

  • About 1 in 100 people — about 1 percent — have celiac disease
  • It is estimated that 83% of Americans who have celiac disease are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with other conditions
  • A 100% gluten-free diet is the only existing treatment for celiac disease today.

White and Mint Cookie Tank

This shirt is guaranteed to make you smile while making you feel ultra feminine. It has the perfect loose drape for any body type and a slight sheerness. Wear it with your favorite jeans, yoga pants or cute skirt. Ultra soft poly-viscose blend.

Gluten Checklist Muscle Tank

Already a super-hero? This shirt is for you! Our muscle tank is the perfect mix of strong and sexy, with elongated armholes and the slightest curve at the hem. The poly-viscose blend means you’ll never want to take this soft tee off. That’s cool with us.

Celiac Cutie Hat

Get excited, we now have Celiac Cutie hats! Our simple white logo on navy hat will soon become your favorite staple with every outfit!

Dear Gluten, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together

Never ever getting back with gluten? Perfect! Neither are we! Check out our brand new color and style for our MOST popular shirt. Guaranteed to raise awareness and smiles when you wear it.
