Enjoying some sweet treats

I hope you have a wonderful and safe Halloween everyone!

 

 

 

Before my friend went on vacation, we promised to hang out, but things became hectic.  I gave her a call on Monday to visit her, get a haircut, and then enjoy some lunch.  It was really nice seeing her again.  Her friend was with her and the friend's daughter was so cute.  She always smiled at me when I smiled and waved at her.  After the haircut, we headed to Sophie's for Cuban cuisine.  She had the salmon, rice, and maduros (sweet plantains) while I had the Cubano (Cuban sandwich).  The food was really good!  I don't frequent the Financial District like I used to, but it brought back a lot of memories of the places I had lunch at with my former co-workers.

 

It was such a great conversation and we shared a lot of stories about family and what's been going on in our lives.  She's planning on going to California with her grandchildren for Thanksgiving so it was nice to hear about her vacation plans with the family.  Since family already visited me during the summer and early fall, I might just stay local for Thanksgiving.

 

After I had my late lunch with my friend, I met up with my brother at St. Mark's Place since he had just finished an appointment.  He also had to meet up with his friend after we met so we decided to just have something light like dessert while we talked.  My friend had previously recommended Spot Dessert Bar so I asked him if he was up for it.  He said sure and laughed.

 

The atmosphere was very clean and bright.  We were quickly seated by the server near the windows (it was nice looking outside) and we settled down for a few minutes.  My brother ordered the Kabocha Brulee Cake (warm Japanese pumpkin cake, walnut soil, and condensed milk ice cream) and Chamomile tea.  I ordered the Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake (warm soft dark chocolate cake, green tea ganache, green tea ice cream, and walnut soil) and Thai Iced Bubble Tea.

 

 

Doesn't that look good? :)

 

It was nice.  I always love meeting up and talking with my brother.  I just updated him on what was going on with me (basically a lot of what I covered in my last entry).  After we had our dessert we shared jokes outside and talked about Halloween plans.  Since Halloween has been on a weekday for the past few years, it's tough to really stay up late.  But I do enjoy the festive mood of the holiday months.  I gave him a hug so that I could catch my train (and he could meet with his friend for dinner) and wished him the best.  I was pretty stuffed when I got home so I just had some yogurt, water, and a bag of chips before I went to bed.

 

I've been watching Top Chef and it's been somewhat interesting.  It's already in its 11th season so it doesn't have as much spark as it did a couple of seasons ago.  Granted it would be difficult to really keep things fresh and interesting for this long, but they've been doing well so far.  The drama hasn't been as crazy as some other seasons or the first season of Top Chef Just Desserts, so it's been easier for me to focus on their cooking.

 

My website turned 1 on October 28th!  I just got a message from the website server people that my account was updated and renewed for the next year.  I can't believe it's been that fast already.

 

I won't make this entry too long since it's Halloween and it should be a time to have fun.  I'll save some other topics that I wanted to discuss for the November entries :)  I'll also update all of you on how my court stuff has been going.  I got delivery confirmation that they received the affidavit (hopefully they did haha) last week.  I've done everything on my part and now everything will be decided "on the papers." I feel like I'm waiting for my college or grad school acceptances again!

 

In the meantime, enjoy your sweets and I'll have a big entry for all of you in November!
