    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Wow @ProfessionalHobbit I wish I had visited that restaurant when I was in town 2 weeks ago! Something to look forward to. Happy birthday to your husband.

    Miso soup always calms my stomach and this purchase has been pretty awesome

    Cake Memories

    My mother was and is a good baker and Home cook. That said, my birthday is on St. Patrick’s Day. I loooved Carvel ice cream as a kid. I was scared of the owner of the local store for some reason but Carvel ice cream cakes are a thing in NJ. Instead of getting a Cookie Puss or Fudgy the Whale cake, I got a “Cookie O Puss” for my birthday. I favored the frosting and vanilla/ mint chocolate ice cream parts with the cookie crunchies. I told my husband all about this. I hope he listened!
  4. Am I crazy or does anyone else see a bunny’s side profile by the pup’s ear? 😂
  5. @dcarch you said you’ve eaten at Bourdain’s restaurants. I missing something? AFAIK his only true executive chef job was Les Halles decades ago and the restaurant in NYC closed in March 2016.

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Lunch on the water in SF at Greens Restaurant. Gorgeous views, good wine and the Meyer lemon fettuccine was good too.

    How green is your kitchen?

    A bit bewildered by the recycling in CA having to be in a bag. Seems like more waste.
  8. United has done a lot to upgrade the service from SFO and EWR. That said, I flew first/business/ whatever class it is that has the fully reclining seats from SFO to EWR a week and a half ago and will do the return trip in a few days. The meals were ok. They did offer a lot of snacks. You can kind of make out the menu from this picture. The bedding was nice— from Saks. They always serve a sundae as a dessert. That’s gotten old, IMO.
  9. Yea, Les Halles closed over two years ago. I’m a bit surprised they still have their signage up.

    The fruit back at home in NJ isn’t local yet. But I’m in Northern CA for a bit and the strawberries are fantastic!! The corn is decent too.

    Sonic Drive-In

    I would too— I don’t get why one hasn’t come to Morris County yet. I almost want to franchise one.
  12. Cold sesame noodles are a favorite. Especially in the warmer months.

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    This looks like Dominos to me... am I wrong? @robinstx I live in Northern NJ and can get great pizza from local places within an hour.
  14. I am SO jealous. I have a raised bed from the former home owners but between the chipmunks and rabbits (which aren’t scared of my dopey dog as she ignores them) and the deer it seems like I’d be wasting time unless I got a professional in to help me start.
