SKETCHES from my Dining Table

I am running out of space on my dining table………pencils taking over……..and I just ordered 200 more.


CLICK on the HONEY POT…………..

I am making “20 minute” sketches of whatever lands on the table in front of me.

DOUGHNUT PLANT nyc

If you are in or near the CHELSEA HOTEL…………the DOUGHNUT PLANT in the lobby will treat you to celestial delights…..ie,  DOUGHNUTS!

You may need more than one…….maybe the creme brulee…….. or the

tres leches.

$50 a dozen………but worth every bite!

Shopping for a TURKEY on Arthur Avenue

We schlepped up to the BRONX..……to the Italian Markets…….looking for an Italian Turkey……….NO TURKEY……..but a lot of cute Italians.

Arthur Avenue is the place to get your Proscuitto.

I passed on the oysters but got a whole salami……….peppered.

The price for the whole proscuitto was $299……not bad.

Where did we end up??  WHITE CASTLE.  It has been 60 years since I ate one of those……back then they were 12 for a dollar.  Today it tasted just as yukky as it did in 1960.

MY TABLE SETTING FOR TURKEY DAY

IT is not yet written in stone.  I may change it tomorrow. BUT I will do a pumpkin soup made with pomegranate juice……..heavy cream and a dash of sherry.

I will definately change out the flatware……….this stuff is ugly.  Only sterling will do.

TURKEY DAY IS HERE

But….if we eat HAM  then we have to murder a PIG. Maybe we should just eat a cabbage and give thanks.

BARBIE and KEN serve up a Turkey

All my friends know that I love doll houses and room settings too.

Barbie and Ken  and a turkey too.

SUGAR FACTORY • a fix for your SWEET TOOTH

 

The SUGAR FACTORY [at 1991 Broadway] occupies a PUBLIC SPACE………….which means you can sit here all day long…………with your phone or your laptop or your ipad…….maybe a book…..and you don’t have to buy anything.



You can even bring your own food and eat it in this pleasant surrounding.

I couldn’t resist this $4 donut……..Creme Brulee……….and I ordered one more!

Coffee, espresso, tea, ice cream………  and a YELLOW RUBBER DUCKIE.

Fill a little bucket [very little] with your candy selection……….pay $14……….and satisfy your craving [a little one at that].
