Though it scared us for decades, after 32 years on this planet that we call home, we finally did it – we ate White Castle for the first time!
Thoughts… We were expecting something that would make us run to the restroom. What we got was delicious tiny cheeseburgers and amazing fries that rested well inside of our belly. Today we officially declare, White Castle > all other fast food options.
With the slight touch of snow that we got in the New York City area yesterday, we finally had a chance to test out our Yaktrax traction attachments to see if they actually do any good and help make walking in the snow an easier task.
Shortest answer: Yes, they make walking in the snow much easier. The only downside to them is that they are not that widely used yet, so we got the stink eye from several folks as we put them on our sneakers while riding the subway.
Each year, while gathered around the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner table, families often ponder what the world’s best tasting cranberry sauce is. Well, that’s easy, it’s the one with the lines on it.
Farm fresh cranberries, bleh!
We don’t know where this was bought, but our home is now home to the world’s perviest looking baby bottle brush.
It looks like this product’s Amazon reviews should go something like this, “This brush fits snug and gives good pressure.” “Once taken out of a dirtiest orifice, this brush can easily be cleaned and used to clean baby bottles.”
Yes, this baby bottle brush looks like it does the nasty, plain and simple.
Since Hurricane Sandy hasn’t yet begun to do much of anything in our neck of the woods of Brooklyn, we decided to go out for some delicious lunch with the expectation of our destination being closed.
To our shock, we found that Dunkin’ Donuts is open, despite Starbucks having closed its stores down. DD is never a destination of ours.
We learned that the local Foodtown of Bay Ridge supermarket is closed and that the person making the signs does not appreciate the use of an apostrophe, so the signs read “Sorry were closed.” We are sad to not have been able to go inside to see if the insane pre-storm shoppers bought all of the horseradish off the shelves.
The local Irish bar O’Sullivan’s is open, because who doesn’t love alcohol and being drunk when one might need to duck out of the way from a falling tree.
And here it is, finally! Delicious lox and cream cheese from H & L Bagels.
It was well worth the journey on foot through a wimpy and mediocre storm at best.* Hopefully it will not actually get bad where we are.
*Wimpy and mediocre being used since we’ve seen only minimal rain and winds so far and are approximately 70′ above sea level and not at risk of storm surge and enjoy using run on sentences at times and, yes it has come to this, stir crazy and posting about food.
