Ahhhh move-in day is over and a success!
If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably sick of seeing shots of Lu lugging boxes, trips to Target, and pictures of our view.
We’re almost done — and so happy to be in a new space with a fresh start!
Today, a round 4-person dining table arrives for our cute breakfast nook that’s off to the left of the kitchen. I can’t wait to have a proper meal, sitting down with Lu! Brunch on the weekend at a table, imagine at that!
We’re in love with the apartment – it’s much more spacious, I have my own walk-in pantry (!!!), room for TWO dining tables, and I no longer have to walk sideways to slither out of my bed – I can just get up and walk around the bed like a normal person. #apartmentliving
It’s also refreshing and liberating to sleep with the windows open, not worried someone can see you in your bed (and if they can see all the way into our Jersey City windows from the west side of Manhattan, that’s impressive – enjoy the show!) We woke up this morning to the sun around 6:30am, it was amazing. There’s nothing like natural light waking you up.
Setting up the kitchen was probably the hardest part.
It’s back to work and for now, night-time unpacking and Target runs (when will they end?!) will have to suffice. We still have a lot to do – wall decor and frames to hang. The next big project: the baby’s nursery!!
Pictures and a recap coming soon, probably on inspiralizedali!
Today, I’m sharing another fun way to make a fritter: with spiralized cabbage! I used red cabbage, so these fritters look a little darker, but you could also use a green cabbage and make them lighter in color.
These cabbage fritters are flavored with ground ginger, garlic, and scallions, giving them a bit of Asian flare, sauteed in coconut oil. They’re flavor-rich, easy to make, and work well as a side dish or even as a breakfast, topped with an avocado! If you’re into the smoked salmon and cream cheese combo, use these fritters for that!

Spiralized Cabbage and Scallion Fritters
- 3 cups spiralized red cabbage
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup diced scallions
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- In a large mixing bowl, add the cabbage, eggs, almond flour, scallions, garlic powder, and season with salt and pepper. Toss to mix well.
- Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add about 1/3 cup of cabbage mixture. Repeat as many times as fit in the skillet (I fit about 3-4.) Cook for 4 minutes, flip, and cook another 2-3 minutes, flattening with the spatula.
- Transfer the finished fritters to a plate and continue with the remaining oil and cabbage mixture.
