If you didn’t tune in on Friday afternoon to QVC I wanted to share our results. We sold out of the 1300 cases they ordered as a test in sevan minutes. 289 people also ordered into the auto-delivery buying the Chicken NoOodle Soup every 60 days. The sales were a total of $154,320 at retail which it was great for the debut. After our airing on Friday at QVC John and I took a train from Phili to NYC. First stop was to my best friend growing up, Cassie’s house . On the train, I was thinking how hard it would be to stick to my diet when I am in NYC. The temptation will be at it’s peak for me in NYC. The New York bagels, the New York pizza, Zabars which is my favorite food store in NY and on and on and on. We arrived in Penn Station and I immediately realized why I absolutely love NY. It is the new yorkers that I love and who make me feel like I am home. Walking thru Penn Station I saw at least five major displays of public affection. Couples loving each other without a care in the world about who was watching them. We arrived at Cassie and Michaels house on seventy first and Amsterdam. At midnight we went out to get a slice of New York style pizza. John ordered two slices, one for me and one for him. I didn’t eat it, my desire to stick to my diet was stronger than the urge to cheat with that yummy slice of Pizza. The next morning we went to one of my favorite places, The Luxenberg Cafe. I normally get the egg’s benedict, however, this time I ordered the chicken Pallard ( grilled chicken). It was good and healthy. We spent the day walking up and down amsterdam ave on the upper west side. We stopped into Zabars to pick up a bag of Goodies for my sister Lisa which was our next stop on our weekend in New York. At about 4 we headed to grand central station and took a train to RYE, new york where my sister and her family live. Saturday night they took us out to a fish restaurant called Morgans. They came out with bread, cornbread and butter and I refrained from eating any of it. I also did not have any cocktails at dinner and I stuck to ice water. For dinner I ordered blackened swordfish which was good. For dessert I had a coffee without sugar. This morning I woke up to the unbelievable smell of fresh NY bagels. We had smoked salmon and pickled herring, white fish salad and sliced tomatoes. I did not have any bagels just the fish and the tomatoes. We went to lunch at a cute Japanese restaurant and I had a miso soup and chicken lettuce wraps. Tonight we are headed to a big party for the superbowl. It should be a great time and another temptation for me to drink & eat some of my favorites beer, nachos, chili and chicken wings. YUM! So far, so good sticking to my gluten free NoOodle diet in my favorite food city in the world… New York.
Cheers to your health & wellness,
