2013! It's been awhile....

So it's been a while since we've have posted. Since it's a new year, we'll give "The Speed of Life" a new beginning.  We're gonna start slow and we'll try to post everyday with our musings about NYC and living in Manhattan.

First up, it's Friday and we'll off to an early start... 
So we need some filling and warm food for this windy Friday Morning.
We made Grits. I know it's a southern thing but in NYC it's a fast, economical and decadent thing.  It was so easy and so savory for a creamy treat!

We had Grits, Applegate Cheddar Cheese and an avocado.  Boil 1 cup of water for every 1/4 cup of grits.  (1/4 cup of grits serves 2 bowls of grits).  When the water is boiling, pour in grits while stirring.   Lower stove to medium low and keep stirring till it thickens.  But just as it thickens we added 1 slice of cheddar cheese and stir till completely melted into the grits.  Waa la! It's done.  Add salt (we're fancy, so we added kosher or sea salt) and if you like Paprika to taste.  We sliced a avocado and used it to dip and eat with our grits.

Hmmmm so warm and filling on this cold winter day.
