Jumble of thoughts, plus a nudge about RRC#7

RRC#7's deadline for submission is in two weeks (Sunday, June 3 at 11:59pm EST); I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!

We're in NYC right now, and visited L&B's Spumoni Gardens yesterday with my cousin Matt, his wife Catherine, and their new daughter Fiona (who is just adorable. I know everyone says that about babies, but let's face it, not all babies are - in fact, a lot aren't - but Fiona really is adorable.)

Anyway, the pizza is good, but the highlight was the spumoni: perfect little scoops of flavorful, creamy goodness piled into flexible paper cups. We ordered the rainbow spumoni (chocolate, vanilla, pistachio) but if we go back (it's kind of a schlepp), I'd just get a scoop of the chocolate and a scoop of the pistachio -- really, really great stuff.
Also, the people watching can not be beat.

So that's it: this will be the last post for a while (two weeks?) as Shane & I are flying to Moscow this afternoon for the tour. Wish us luck!

Have fun on the trip Laura! We'll miss you around here while we plod along in our boring little lives.

I'm jealous, really I am...

Have, take lots of pix, and bring back some Russian recipes.
