Say hello to classic chocolate chip cookies with walnuts!
Misson: East Village Cheese Shop. They have a great selection of fine cheeses at unbelievably low prices.
This was yesterday’s drive through the city. It took 1 1/2 hours from Pleasantville, and it was worth every minute!
Last night`s Iftar and
this mornings Suhoor!
We went to Aux Epices last night for iftar. It is a French Malaysian Fusion restaurant in Chinatown, that boasts of tasty cheapeats. Malaysian cuisine is remenicient of Indonesian cuisine, so Dexter and I were excited to try it. http://auxepicesnyc.com
I was very impressed by the decor, food presentation and ambiance! I ordered Chicken Curry and Dexter ordered Chicken Rendang. The spices and flavors were excellent, but both meals were over salted. The coconut rice had excellent flavor, but was a bit too soft/over cooked.
I would give Aux Epices one more chance to “wow” me. Everyone deserves a second chance, don`t they?
We then went to Cha Chan Tang for tasty tea! http://chachantangnyc.com
For Suhoor we had grapes, pear, cheese, multi grain and seed bread and Brambleberry Tazo Tea.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Clafoutis is a French dessert of fruit, but this variation features a brunch twist. This cherry tomato clafoutis is similar to a quiche.
mmmmm gonna try this!

A birds song
and the flutter of wings
I look out of the window
three blue birds sit in the same tree
I am enchanted by their beauty!
Why would anyone want to put her
in a cage?
Her wings were meant to fly!
Beauty lies within that freedom.
So, spread your wings wide,
I do hope that you will visit again, someday.
