My parents got in on time Monday night and we’ve had a great time showing them around. They visited us in the city the years we lived in Brooklyn, but Long Island is a new family destination. And two sets of aunts and uncles get here tomorrow morning! Since I knew I’d have lots of good food to share with visitors in town I decided to post in smaller mid-week wrap ups this week.
Here’s some of what my mouth’s been up to…
Coffee from 7-11 with Cinnabon creamer.
I’ve been wanting to try that damn creamer for months and I ended up hating it so much that I threw out my whole coffee halfway though. Boo. But at least I can stop pestering Adam to walk to 7-11 with me.
A gingerbread lunch feast.
We went to Great Neck for my parents’ first night’s dinner. Bareburger, of course, because that’s our go-to spot for out-of-towners. We shared the fried zucchini to start.
For their 2nd dinner we went our favorite Italian spot, Luigi’s.
We all shared some fresh mozzarella too.
I did have enough room left over to dole out a round of RumChata after dinner.
I don’t know what the plan is for tomorrow (with 10 people for dinner) but the next day’s Thanksgiving, whee!
