HAPPY WORLD CUP EVERYONE!

Holy crap, I cannot believe these photos were taken four years ago, right after I’d just started this blog, actually.

Like a proper newly obsessed samba fanatic, I’d dragged my friends to a Sushi Samba restaurant in the Flatiron District to watch the final game, between Brazil and … I don’t even remember :) I think we had a lot of caipirinhas… But we also tasted for the first time Feijoada, Brazil’s national dish. It was like comfort food to me, having grown up on Mexican, and I couldn’t get enough of it.

Alyssa and Kathy were very excited about the farofa, which we sprinkled over it. It looked like parmesan cheese but tasted like very buttery, finely-ground cous-cous. Delicious.

These shoes were, and probably ridiculously, remain, the only item of clothing I own that is either green or yellow (Brazil’s colors). I seem to wear all black and red… and it’s funny how in some ways you don’t change.

Anyway … how does four years go so fast?… That was really a blast though. This year, I think I’m going to try to get friends together and do the same — whoever wins, celebrate that country with … what else – food!

Will be hard to take a break from watching my Yankees, but that’s the way it’s going to have to be unless I want to watch them on my home TV which really just doesn’t appeal…

  3. Hi Liz – I’m so mad at myself. I hate watching the auditions but had wanted to watch Thursday night, when it officially started but totally forgot until I was at the ballet and by then it was too late. I’m trying to find repeats of it online because I heard the Pasha Anya routine was rather hilarious. But yeah, I do intend to start watching it next week when the competition begins.
