New York Style Food Porn

My life has been ever so slightly busy the past 4 months!!!
I have spent at least 3 weeks offshore per month since July and I cant remember what dry land looks like!! In the last 92 days, I have spent 7 in my own bed... How's that for crazy?! So when I do get some time at home there will be more healthy tastiness coming your way I promise :)
So until then:
I went to New York for the first time ever in September, with my cousin Jake who's a chef, and fellow foodlover. Now I normally live on a really healthy clean diet. but the sole purpose of this trip was to eat EVERYTHING in sight. We went for 5 days, Friday-Tuesday.
Jake and I rockin' our kilts!
I have never felt so disgusting and squidgy in my life...
Yet surprisingly proud of just how much I ate. Haha!
I wrote down everything I ate over the four days (What I ate... not 'we') and when you read it, you wont beleive me. But its true...
