March on

Cookmaid with fruit and vegetables by Sir Nathaniel Bacon 1620-1627 from the Tate Collection

I have been bedridden with a head cold for 3 days and my older daughter comes home tomorrow for spring break. She is now vegan. So I hauled myself off the couch and went to the library and took out Kathy Freston’s book Veganist and a cookbook too. The NYTs ran a piece on the new vegan Blossom Bakery yesterday so we will check that out.

Besides being panicked about what to cook (or not cook), I have been making a list of things to do with the girls this month. I remember coming home from boarding school one holiday and saw a list my mother had made of things for us to do and thought it was odd. But now I get it.

My girls grew up doing homework under the racks backstage at fashion shows. Now they tag along as we shoot for KiC. Next week we are going to Greenwich to see new pieces from Blair Husain’s jewelry collection (she is an upcoming KiC profile) and have lunch at our favorite Meli Melo creperie. Also next week, my friends are launching a line of handbags called Eponymous that I bet are great and I will take some pics.

Cindy Sherman. Untitled #466. 2008

The Cindy Sherman show at MoMA tops my list of cultural activities, the Whitney Biennial 2012 which opens today is a must-see and we still have not been to the new American wing at the Met. And movies movies movies.

Then we go skiing.

  • Tip: Candle 79 is one of my all-time favorite restaurants -vegan or otherwise. Simply delicious! As is the more casual Candle Cafe, nearby. I also like Babycakes for vegan sweet treats that satisfy. Bon vacances, les filles!

  • Babycakes (on Broome Street) is terrific – the shop is adorable and my children actually prefer it over our local bake shops . Your daughter will love it – bon appetit!
