Imorgon tänkte jag göra julgodis. Jag tänkte köra samma koncept som förra julen så jag kopierar helt enkelt det inlägget från 7 december (jag var tidigt ute då också):
Smält 200 g mörk choklad och 200 g mjölkchoklad med 25 g smör (i ett vattenbad står det i receptet, men det är bara trams, mikro går alldeles utmärkt). Blanda i 1 burk kondenserad mjölk, 2 tsk vaniljsocker och rör om. Rör ner 3 dl minimarshmallows och 2,5 dl jordnötter. Nu står den i kylen och väntar på att skäras upp. Efter som det är så mycket fett och socker i smeten så är den inte kletig, bara mjuk och god.
Den är helt vansinnigt god. Jag gör två en med nötter och en utan och den utan är nästan oätlig men ungarna gillar inte jordnötter.
Daph, I'm making Christmas fudge tomorrow with lots of chocolate, mini marshmallows and peanuts. I know you barely finished celebrating Thanksgiving, but since we don't have that I have to start doing Christmassy things now. For First Advent my parents are coming up and mum and the kids are making gingerbread cookies.

Jag köpte alla fyra. Världens bästa svägerska ville förvisso inte ha fler husdjur, men de här kissar åtminstone inte inomhus. Nu är bara frågan vem som ska få vilken. Förra året fick kusinbarnen varsin monchichi som inte var likadana och lilltjejen ville inte ha sin. Nils har redan sagt att han vill ha en brun. Jag gillar den gula (ja, jag har inte köpt nån till mig själv, men jag får ju välja åt Edvin). Så får lilltjejen den vita och stortjejen den grå. Så får det bli. Jag så innerligt nöjd, jag köpte alla barnens julklappar idag. Det enda som saknas är lego till Eddie B.
Jag tänkte lägga ut en önskelista här, men så länge kan jag nämna att till de här hamsterdjuren finns en MASSA tillbehör (som t.ex. farföräldrar och liknande skulle kunna köpa).

On Monday we had lunch at Momofuku Ssäm Bar. India Knight tweeted about how she'd had dinner there two nights in a row a few weeks ago. It was the best. The waiter made great suggestions and we split an order of pork buns and seasonal vegetables for starter and then I orderered brisket as per instructions from waiter and Johan had the spicy rice cakes and they were hot! And I ate more than I should have because it was all so good. Even the dessert which was odd, but the texture of it was sublime, we both had thai iced tea parfait. Very few pictures, we just ate. If you ever go there do have the pork buns.

In the afternoon we went to Alice's Tea Cup Chapter II as it was conveniently on the way to Grand Central Station. We weren't exactly planning on eating anything, we just wanted a cup of tea. So we each had a pot of tea: Johan had Russian caravan, Eva had Lavender earl Grey (best by far, one of the best teas I've had and I've ..., yes, exactly). They didn't have the Chai I wanted or the Cinnamon tea, so I had Birthday tea which seemed fitting. As we were still full from lunch Johan had a platter of cookies, Eva an Oreo cupcake (don't know why the frosting was green) and I ordered two scones (cos that was how you ordered them, not because I thought I should have two), one pumpkin (toffee sauce) and one plain buttermilk. Obviously I got clotted (almost) cream and jam. We ate as much as we could, my pumpkin scone was v. good, but we couldn't finish even half of it. I think we did finish the tea.
I don't think we had dinner. Update: We did have dinner. We went back to the hotel and ordered room service: grilled cheese sandwich for me and a club sandwich for Johan. I ate all my chips/fries. With mayo.
I found out about Alice's Tea Cup from the rockstar diaries and I've been dying to go ever since I first read about it. Now I will go back every time I visit NY; it was that good and they had soy milk and the menu went on forever.

I read about Mama Mexico at Ett annat New York and thought it sounded like a fab place and it was. We went for the one in. We had lovely drinks, Johan had a mojito with a huge pice of raw sugar in it, Eva had a blueberry margarita and I had a coconut margarita. We had to have guacamole (which is prepared by the table) and it was great. For main I had crab between tosatadas, refried beans and rice, Johan had chicken fajitas (his was the best dish) and Eva had trio de chimichangas. We would like to go back some day to have Mexican brunch, I think maybe Jon & Eva will go there and test eat it for us! After lunch we could barely walk due to all the food and we went to the Whitney Museum of American Art and saw thew Georgia O'Keefe exhibition which was a treat, I love her and didn't even know it was on (I did check their website, but it wasn't very clear.) They also have Andy Warhol's coca-cola bottles.

Vi åt frukost på Dunkin Donuts på söndagen; inte donuts utan English muffin med ägg och jättevarmt kaffe. Donutsen köpte vi med hem till Eva, hon beställde de ohåliga med toffeefyllning och pumpaglasyr, jag valde apple cheese Danish. Johan valde de andra pumpaglaserade.
När vi kom fram på lördagen så hämtade Eva oss och vi åkte raka vägen till Taco Bell eftersom vi var jättehungriga och skulle vidare till Stop & Shop (a little bit of heaven on earth) och jag aldrig hade ätit där. (Sorry Daph, I should have written all of this in English, but I think you get the gist). I liked Taco Bell and there I tried Mountain Dew for the first time EVER and I quite liked that as well. Then we went to Stop & Shop and got Oreos (plain and peanut butter) Jell-O (watermelon, wild strawberry and blackberry), cinnamon sugar sprinkles, peppermint sugar spinrkles, American mustard, skittles and a lot more candy, popcorn spices, macaroni & cheese and more. After this we went back to Eva's place had a glass of wine and some guacamole and fell asleep.
