New York turns perfectly ordinary people into food snobs -- --simply because everything you could ever desire and then some is available to you almost every minute of the day.
Blogging turns perfectly ordinary people into the sort of weirdos who take pictures of their lunch.
Smoked salmon tartine at La Pain Quotitien.
New lunch special at the same place. Tuscan white beans, bread soaked in olive oil, frissee, parma ham. Yum.
Now for the really good stuff.
To cut to the chase.
Chelsea Market. Brownies, blondies, brownies of every flavor you could dream of (mocha, white chocolate, caramel etc etc) in big sizes and tiny. People say, "I don't really do sweet things but just a taste....." Ha!
Pat invites me behind the scenes at the Fat Witch bakery. This is my lucky day.
Such a cheery, plump contented witch who now pops up all over the place even on tea.
Middle aged women giggle. A fat witch they say: ah that's me.
I think green tea is meant to be good for you.
ps. My favorite is the white chocolate brownie.
