New Essex Market - great suggestion Mitch. 

found some interesting stuff - confectioners closed today though  

 

Glad you got to see it. We've been looking at, and walking past, parking lots for the past 15 years (well, like 50 years actually). It's going to get even more interesting when the Market Line (downstairs from the market, running the entire length of the 2 blocks) opens.

 

Sorry about those bums taking a day off!

Don't think I showed you what I got from JB Prince. A raplette (bit of a break on the price because it's the floor model), a pair of tiny tongs. Wish I'd gotten a couple actually - all the places I keep tongs would benefit from a pair. And they threw in a branded marker pen!

 

We took another smelly Lyft back towards home (what is it with these vehicles that have a million little smelly trees hanging from the mirror or 15 of the air fresheners in the vents. I nearly wheezed myself to death. It's hard not to breath for several dozen blocks. We stopped in a Chick-fil-A at  @Alleguede's request. He noticed one yesterday and hasn't stopped begging since.

 

Dragged it all back to the room to eat.

Deluxe for @Alleguede and Bianca.

 

IMG_5695.thumb.jpg.fb1bb5e49989933354aa5857a5039031.jpg

 

Not so deluxe for me.

 

 

After we ate - we had to weigh and test the Kouign Aman from Dominique Ansel and try out the canelle. (and of course critique). @Alleguede's Kouign aman still lead the pack.

I'm just joking, teasing people who fall in love in that way is one of my favourite passtimes.

While we were out and about this afternoon we saw this fellow on the street - watching the goings on down one of those sets of stairs from the street to the basement.

Tonight we were invited out to Hoboken to one of Maricel Precilla's restaurants Cucharamama. Maricel was presenting the International Chocolate Awards for the Americas.

Plantain chips with salsas

May I just mention how hot this salsa was?

 

IMG_5704.thumb.jpg.f47d725105e1a377b506e55b53fce1a7.jpg

 

Empanada's were spinach and meat versions.

 

IMG_5705.thumb.jpg.a4f32928c221fb715d2babb02faa9bf8.jpg

 

Chicken croquettes.

Yucca sticks with green mayo of some sort. 

 

IMG_5708.thumb.jpg.154d307999fd7ae0d643a7a1c39376fa.jpg

 

White sangria and mojitos were free flowing.

 

IMG_5710.thumb.jpg.abf7bdc9a546089a8d0b8fdca0f87c81.jpg

 

A tasty shrimp with some veg and plantain chips.

 

There was quite a crowd and after the awards had gone on for a while - it became rather warm and required escape to the cooler outside.

Maricel seems have have earned herself a James Beard Award for that very restaurant. As well as a Beard award among others for her book on Latin cuisine. A true high achiever!

After a little difficult negotiation the 3 of us are ensconced in the brand new LaGuardia Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge. 

 

It’s the breakfast/lunch turnover so we are waiting!

 

I was muttering about no ‘plain’ tea while I headed back to my purse to get tea bags - was told they had plain - “we have a Earl Grey and camomile” - I don’t think he believes me that that is not plain tea.

So with Manitoulin coming up on Friday - I need to start building my alcohol dehydrogenase enzymes. Apparently this fancy lounge has two variations of beer glasses but no cocktail glasses. They do however have a lot of bottles.

 

So I mixed myself equal parts Tanqueray, sweet vermouth and grand mariner.
