Today is Yves’ birthday! Happy Birthday sweetheart! We’ve already started celebrating! On Sunday my parents took us out for dim sum in the neighborhood and we came back and had carrot cake. That is one of Yves’ favorite cakes. It was good but way too much cream cheese icing. They layered the cake with cream cheese icing in the middle, we never had it that way before. I guess they made it special for birthday cakes.


On Monday, Yves took off work (since he had to work on Saturday) so I took him out to lunch to the Mill Basin Kosher Deli. The reviews were good and they said it’s Brooklyn’s best kept secret. It was good, I wouldn’t say it was great. Yves got pastrami on rye and I got stuffed cabbage and pierogies. We also shared a side of french fries as they looked interesting when the waitress brought them out for another table. I wanted to try their pierogies to see if there was a more local place I can get my fix. They don’t have anything on Raymund’s!
Yves’ classic look of ‘what the hell is that? And why did you order it at a Kosher Deli?’
Not exactly what we would call overstuffed. Guess we’re just pigs!
I liked the fried onions with it but I could have used sour cream!
These must have been some big potatoes!
