Food glorious food
Imagine you’re arriving in New York. What’s the first thing you would do? Visit Times Square? Go shopping? Stroll round Central Park?
Mitch and I went to New York in 2015. “Mel, what did you and Mitch do when you arrived in New York?” I hear you cry.
Then got on a train to Hoboken in New Jersey. For one reason and one reason only. Not to visit the United Synagogue of Hoboken. Nor to visit the Hoboken Historical Museum. But to visit one of my dream places. Somewhere to tick off my bucket list.
For those of you who have watched Cake Boss will understand why. Or simply if you have an appreciation for delicious baked goods. Travelling all that way meant that it was only right to sample a selection of sweet treats; Cupcakes. Cookies. Brownies. Cannoli’s. Carlo’s famous lobster tails (not actual lobster). There is a Carlo’s Bakery on Times Square which would have been easier, quicker and arguably a much more sensible option. But of course I had to visit the original bakery. We did also pay the Times Square bakery a visit (Read: several visits).
I would be lying if I said this one wasn’t of the main reasons I wanted to go to New York…
I am a massive foodie. I love food. Luckily Mitch loves food just as much as I do — a recipe for a happy relationship!
