Instagram Weekend: Doughnut Plant & the Met

Gooood morning! Happy Wednesday. We’re mid-way through the week, and it only seems to be getting warmer here in New York. I enjoyed some relaxing, semi-outside, but mostly-inside, time off this past weekend. My sweet tooth priorities were in line on Saturday — I FINALLY stopped at the Doughnut Plant in Chelsea. Oh my goodness. I can’t believe I had waited that long!

I ordered the carrot cake doughnut. Verdict? It’s a WIN!! Probably one of the best doughnuts I’ve ever had. I’m not usually a doughnut person, but compared to all the rest I’ve tasted, these are pretty top-notch. The size was decent — but not excessive. The center was filled with rich cream cheese — the perfect amount — and the outside was glazed with frosting and pieces of *real* carrots. It was just the right kind of sweet, too. I’ll definitely be back. On my way out, I noticed that they sell churros, too (another one of my weaknesses…)!

On Sunday, I spent an art-filled afternoon at the Met.

I spent a good portion of the afternoon admiring the Monet paintings. He’s always been one of my favorite artists ever since I first learned about him in second grade! :-D

I am also happy to report my first sighting of beautiful spring flowers — right outside my apartment. Yellow daffodils! I won’t mind passing by these on my way to work this week…

  • Question: How about you — what are your favorite spring flowers? Have you been noticing any near your house, in the park or near your office lately?
