Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 36)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan Week 36

It has been a hot, humid and busy week here in NY.  I had a video shoot in Manhattan for my upcoming cook book, which was awesome but a little nerve wracking! I even did a mini “staycation” day in NYC with family that included a double decker bus tour, Little Italy, and an amazing tour of the Freedom Tower. And I hit the Hampton’s this weekend for an event with TastingTable.com. This week will be another scorcher, so lots of grilling planned this week as well as some slow cooker meals.
