a busy day
DH suggested that I serve the cake in single layers which was inspired. Usually, people ask for half a slice of cake, and this way, it was just the top half. Some of the ladies cut the slices in half anyway. Then, to my very great delight, they went back for the second half. Maybe even a third half? And everyone asked for the recipe. Yayyyy!! The meringues were tough, but I think that had something to do with the lemon juice I flavored them with. And the oven was a bit too warm. I will improve with practice.
DH came home and declared that he was jonesing for pastrami, so we decided to try a deli we've never been to before. On the way, we passed this bush. The purple buds are berries. Does anyone have any idea what this bush is? I want one!
The deli was a delight and we stuffed ourselves. We will need to return soon so I can try the matzoh-ball soup. I had a tongue sandwich and OMG it was yummy!
Then we had to stop in at the LUSH bubble bath store, since it was a party day - the Gold Ticket promotion kick-off. All the staff were wearing gold and sparkle and festive attire.
Good Lord, am I really that stout? Well, I'm still beautiful on the inside. Pretty is as pretty does, and I do pretty well.
