Day 59: Time Flies When You Are Having Fun!

I spent the early part of the weekend at my friend Devorah's apartment on the Upper West Side. We had a chilled out lunch there with our friends Lisa and Sarah. In addition to the customary wine (Jeunesse, one of my current favorites) and challah (traditional Jewish bread, this time from Zaydies) to start the meal, we ate chicken, roasted cauliflower and roasted squash. Everything was very tasty - props to the chefs. Devorah was very proud that I ate the squash, because I am usually averse to trying new food, and she has prepared it in a way that I had never eaten it before. But it looked good, so I tasted it, and it was. Later, we used the leftover squash to concoct fruit fly traps. These surprisingly provide hours of entertainment and I recommend that you try one yourself some day.
