6. Attend a free concert
I woke up at the crack of dawn and headed to Rockefeller Center to see Enrique Iglesias perform at The Today Show! It was so much fun and I'm really glad I went.

We had dinner at the Bonfire Grill and it was absolutely delicious! There are few places in NYC where you can get a steak dinner and a martini for less than $30...and seriously it was one of the best steak dinners I've ever had. If you ever stop by, order the Sliced Steak Frites and shell out the extra $2 for the sweet potato fries...delish!
Melissa and I hit up Parked! Food Truck Festival. Soooo much fun and such a great way to try out a bunch of different food trucks.

Teriyaki Balls was nothing to write home about but other than that, all the food was delicious! The ice cream sandwich from Melt Bakery pretty much changed my life. It was the best ice cream sandwich I've ever had!!
After our feast we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge.
The very end of the night took an unexpected turn when we stumbled upon the weekly Salsa Party at the South Street Seaport. I've never ever danced salsa before but one of the men there asked me if I'd like to be his dance partner. I said yes and ended up dancing for over an hour! I was terrible at first but by the end I had really caught on. Sooooo much fun!
I had a lazy day but I did cook this for dinner:
the recipe here. I made a double batch so I could have left overs for lunch this week. The recipe makes about half the amount pictured.
I hope you all have happy Mondays!
