holiday cheer

Tomorrow I’m going home for Thanksgiving break! Yaaaaaaaaaay! My train is BRIGHT and early at 6:20 a.m. Good times x_x

I got a head start on the holiday goodness when my aunt and uncle passed through town and took me out to dinner in the NORTH END. Heavenly pasta and eggplant followed by, of course, Mike’s pastry.

Oh. Em. Gee. The one on the left was a layer of pastry, a layer of marzipan, a layer of apricot jam, and nuts on top. HEAVEN. On the right was a chocolate-dipped Florentine.

I always fail to properly convey delicious pastries…

Cause yknow, my camera sucks…

Oh well, use your imaginations!

Also had a marker of the holiday season:

My first red cup. A one-pump peppermint mocha. Seriously, I’m so glad I got it cause it was PLENTY chocolatey and minty. Any more I think would frankly have been kind of gross.

Interesting how Bucks and its peppermint mocha can bring on the holiday spirit. I look forward to their seasonal mugs, Christmas designs are my favorite.

I don't know why, but I just don't love Mike's Pastrys that much. We took my roommate there to show them the city and they ordered a cannoli but forgot to get a ricotta filling. Amateurs

That's the cookie I was trying to remember the name of: Florentine. The Nutridel cookies kinda taste like those (but healthy and not chocolate-dipped, unfortunately). Can't wait to read more of you bloggy!
