We were still recuperating from New Years Eve when we were invited to go to Il Fornaio. It looks delicious, doesn't it?
The restaurant itself is gorgeous! To see all of the delicious food, including the Pappardelle Gialla ai Funghi I ordered, see the post here on The Episodic Eater.
I was in the area, so I went to Mitsuwa Marketplace to do a little shopping! I have a sweet tooth, so it's pretty hard for me not to stock up. :)
Also, there are tons of authentic Japanese items and so many options, like these soy sauces. To see the entire tour, including the most perfect little mochi cake I have ever seen, click here on The Episodic Eater!
In a second post, I shared all of the delicious treats I bought! The Sweet Potato Tart, Curry Donut, and Crispy Creme are just three of the beautiful pastries I bought.
Here is a close-up of the Sweet Potato Tart, and you'll want to see the rest of the pastries plus the other goodies I couldn't help buying here!
During the week, we went to Christy's on Broadway for a quick dinner.
A salad day keeps the pounds away! Well, maybe if I could avoid eating the Chocolate Bread Pudding! Check it out right here. :)
Now, this is sad because we said goodbye to a faithful friend this week. My guy's childhood dog was put to sleep on Saturday. He was 17 years old and was happy every time I saw him, acting like a puppy almost until the end. Never having a dog myself, he was so friendly that I finally understood the phrase "man's best friend" after spending time with the little guy. He was notoriously good at avoiding cameras and phones for pictures, so this is the best that I could find on short notice. He will be missed.
