Sicilian Grilled Swordfish and Arugula - Trip to Philly Part 1

Our Trip to Philly was incredible! James and Katy were amazing hosts. They had something fun planned for every minute of the trip. Here are some pictures for you to see our fun!

The city is beautiful. We spent the first day on foot walking all over. The first hospital, the constitution center, the liberty goes on!
Here is the constitution center tour.
The room where it was signed. Hard to believe!

The lobby, isn't it a beautiful shade of blue!
This is where we tried our first Philly Cheesesteak. "With wiz and onions please!" J was scared at first, but we LOVED it! I was craving another after this one. It was soooo good!
Day 2 we took the train to NYC! It was an hour and a half away. We had a blast!
First stop..walking the High Line. I loved the high line so much during our trip last May so I was glad to be back. The Popsicle stand wasn't there this time so I was a little disappointed. 


I was rushed during our trip to Eataly last year. This time we had time to eat lunch there and walk around. I could have stayed for hours, LOVE this market!

I really wanted to buy some of their homemade pasta. Isn't it neat!
We saw the Tony award winning musical Once. The music was beautiful. Such a treat!
Our attempt at a Christmas card photo in Central Park...sorry Mommasita, I don't think this one turned out...More on the rest of our trip in the next post.

Our 2nd night there Katy made us this incredible swordfish dinner. I was so excited to photograph it for the blog. Thank you for introducing me to swordfish Katy! It is not fishy at all. It kinda of has the texture of a steak. YUM!
