{food, yoga} Kabocha & Yoga Love, aka Labor Day Weekend

This weekend was a lot of fun, so here are a few highlights. The number one highlight, of course, included my favorite food:

That is Penang Curry with Beef on a Bed of Pumpkin. Would you believe that I saw other restaurant goers leaving the kabocha squash (“pumpkin”) as though it was a garnish? I wanted to 1) take it for myself or 2) tell them to try it out. I did neither, and Bobby laughed at me all the way home about my passion for kabocha. (The dish in back is Bobby’s Pineapple Fried Rice, also delicious.) I really liked the curry and I want to get it again (soon). The restaurant was called Yum Yum Too (Hell’s Kitchen). It’s a Thai restaurant, and we went here for lunch yesterday.

The second highlight was that I bought a 1-month pass for unlimited yoga at Yoga Vida this month. I’ve been every day since I got the pass.

(Psst – If any NYC bloggers want to go for yoga together just shoot me an email: maggie (at) thesaladgirl (dot) com.)

Lastly, here is a Mooncake. My coworker brought some in for us all in celebration of a Chinese holiday/season. I don’t remember exactly what she said they were for – anyone know? This Mooncake has a red bean filling which is one of my favorite flavors. She also brought ones filled with green bean. I started eating this and then thought it might be an interesting item to share.

How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

  1. Yum! I love panang curry, but I’ve never seen a restaurant have kabocha squash in it, only green curry. Sounds delicious (and it looks good, too!)

    Hope you feel better soon!

  2. The food looks delicious! Mooncake, yum! I like the ones without any filling since I’ve never been a filling kind of girl πŸ˜‰ It’s for the Mid-Autumn Festival which is next Monday. As for the story, I never remember whenever I ask my mom about it πŸ˜› Nothing interesting happened this weekend for me except some running, (bad and uncomfy) yoga, and finished reading a book in my backyard (I rarely go out there).

  3. I would be saying the exactly thing it that happens to me with kabocha… you know… I’m all for kabocha as the main dish!!!
    hope you feel better soon!
    I miss you Maggie! πŸ˜‰

  4. i was still away on vacay over the weekend so i enjoyed the sun and sand πŸ™‚ i’ve eaten 3 lil kabochas and went through 2 big cans of pumpkin already and it’s only the first week of sept. i’m going to be orange soon haha

  5. that is the coolest shape of rice ever!

    i ate two varieties of kabocha this week so far, both from my garden. one was a delica and the other a speckled pup. the pup is very “green” tasting, and the delica is drier and harder. delish.

  6. OMG Maggie, this cracks me up. I took a huge break from regular blog reading and have found my way back to your blog again, and what post do I see but Kabocha! I swear the last post I read on your blog was kabocha. It’s like I never left πŸ™‚ Looks fabulous as always and I love a good peanut stew.
