Zabar’s baby! Oh yeah, oh yeah. NY-deli feast tonight, arrived this a.m., to celebrate round II of John’s birthday. Shrimp and lobster salads, H&H bagels, chive cream cheese, pastrami, corned beef, sour-dough rye, chocolate chip cookies. Basically, all of John’s favs. And mine too – OMG, can’t wait to sink my teeth into a warm pastrami on rye with Russian and a smidge of slaw. YES! I also bought a small jar of whole white truffles, to grate over softly scrambled eggs. Don’t think we’ll get to that tonight, though. We have to pace ourselves.
Moderation, Stephanie, moderation. Slow. Down. Take a few deep breaths. Savor. Enjoy. And then, stop. Remember?
And anyhow, I don’t want to be stuffed and miserable, I’ve got to be spot-on for Hijinx with my minxes tonight! Woo hoo!
Happy Birthday Marge!
Pastrami paradise over here. Prrrr… We had a nice little second birthday celebration for John, with the kids. I made Kosher for Passover brownies for A, and they’re incredible. As good as any brownie. The key is matzo cake meal, very easy to create tasty baked goods when you’ve got it. (Recipe posted in comments, below.)
So I’m off to Suz’s shortly, to tape a new episode of Feminine Hijinx! Woo hoo!
