Editor Notes: July Favorites

uly was a whirlwind of work and desserts. True to my word on Instagram (follow me on @theupstateedit), I started an #icecreamseries. This has basically involved me driving around Hudson Valley in search of local creameries.

The funny thing is that when you’ve made it your job to eat dessert, you become quickly sick of it. Even though I’ve kept it to a minimum of one scoop per week (which really means 3 scoops in creamery speak), I’ve crave healthy food something fierce the rest of the time.

I also made it a priority to shop my food locally, visiting Barb’s Butchery in Beacon to make my BF meatloaf and the Overlook Farmers Market in Newburgh to pick up some gorgeous product to make my vegetable pasta (gluten free with faux beef).
