:-D Graciela’s visit, with the additional company of Muffin the pomeranian. (Appreciated food shots were from her phone.) Grilled a phat ribeye, branzino, and some veg. Her birthday dessert features a neat blackberry corn cake from Dominique Ansel Bakery, along with two failed quenelles of my homemade pistachio and masala chai ice cream…

Man, am I getting lazy with opting for the phone camera… Losing some self-respect by sacrificing quality…

Anyway, this was a Sunday morning at Billy’s Bakery. $2.25 for coffee and $5.50 for a slice of their icebox cake, which apparently is a kind of cake that’s OD in cream & sweetness for me. Still a very lovely way to enjoy a quiet weekend morning in the city. :-)
