This morning i woke up in brooklyn, in my old apartment, on my old couch. i had coffee in my old kitchen as memories of my 23-year-old self with a pre-eggboy eggboy came hurling back all projectile-like: sitting at the counter and giggling uncontrollably when he accidentally called me his girlfriend for the first time, making roasted squash pizza in the wee hours of the morning after a bike ride over the brooklyn bridge, having scrambled eggs and soft boiled eggs and a lot a lot of kale and eggs. it's all so very weird being back in this place! everything here is pretty much the same, although my successors appear to be much cleaner than i was, and they have cool things like milk glass mixing bowls and fishs eddy salt shakers. 

i've yet to venture out. the hum of the falafel truck kept me up (or maybe that was jet lag), so i'm getting a late start to my morning, which is now the afternoon. i forget how to dress in new york... are birkenstocks at all ok? as long as i call them normcore? i need a bagel. and i think it's rather warm out this week, which is a good time to segue into my recipe for the day...

matcha mochi yogurt pops!

for popsicle week! you could say these little guys are like an inside out version of mochi ice cream balls. they've got cynthia's mochi bits scattered about within, which make for a texturally exciting and deliciously chewy experience. and the fact that they're made with yogurt makes them a perfectly acceptable breakfast (of course, an ice cream or any other kind of pop is also an acceptable breakfast, especially during popsicle week). i like my yogurt on the tart side, so i've only added a teensy bit of honey, but you can certainly add more if you please. 

be sure to check out the other popsicles that are being posted throughout this tasty week! and three cheers for billy for organizing this and three more cheers for the official unofficial spokesperson, mariah carey.
