Friday Fortune

This fortune cookie fortune made me chuckle.

"About Time I Got Out of that Cookie


Monday, March 20, 2017


It's hard for me to walk by an Epicerie Boulud without stopping in to get a snack. Yesterday, after seeing Paul Taylor Dance Company at Lincoln Center, I picked up this pack of two chocolate chip madeleines and ate one on the walk back to the subway. The other became today's snack. They were fresh and moist and had a bit of lemony tang. So yummy.

BTW Bakery

Chocolate Chip Cookie
I found this bakery on Manhattan's Upper East Side, called "by the way Bakery." BTW Bakery advertises itself as gluten free, dairy free, and kosher. It uses really good chocolate, too. They had small samples of fudge and I gave that a try. So chocolatey rich. I bought a couple of chocolate chip cookies to eat at home, though I ate one while walking and taking photos in that neighborhood. The cookies were very tasty and chewy, but not more chewy than others I've had that were made with the usual ingredients. No delivery or mail order, but I'll definitely make some return visits.

Chocolicious Wisdom

Dove Chocolate Wrappers
The wrappers on the Dove Valentine's Day Chocolate Hearts each had a bit of wisdom typed inside. Here are the ones I saved, in no particular order.

  • "Love is the only true adventure."
  • "Celebrate family and friends."
  • "Get swept away by love."
  • "Hug someone today."
  • "Be happy, be you."
  • "Love without regrets."
  • "Believe in those you love."
  • "Trust with your heart, not your head."
  • "Life is too short to wait."
  • "Love is closer than you think."
  • "Chocolate is a way of life."
  • "The best things in life are chocolate."
  • "Something delicious is about to happen."
  • "Be your own valentine."
  • "Laugh until your heart overflows."
  • "Real friends share chocolate."

Political Graffiti

Avenue M Station
Graffiti Seen at Brooklyn, NY Train Station
This graffiti sums up my mood these days. I need to get back to writing about chocolate, sharing fun links, but life hasn't been much fun lately.
