A Chance to Unwind and Refresh

Like most people, I have my share of acquaintances. When our paths cross there is a kind of easy banter. Exchanging updates as tasks and obligations carry us along through our routines. Yet there are a few people with whom a conversation becomes something more. There is an exchange of ideas, dreams and conflicts and when you part, the world seems a better place. My friend Kathy lives upstate and when she comes to NYC I am always happy when we can find the time to meet. Yesterday we dined at the Bryant Park Grill for a leisurely lunch topped off with a shared (and very delectable) dessert.

Sometimes, in the whirl of keeping it all going forward, I forget the comfort and joy that friendship can bring.


  1. And a good time was had by all! Wonderful seeing you Dorothy......xox k

  2. the dessert looks great. Bananas Foster? Vanilla ice cream? Lemon Ice?
    The yellow stuff in the middle? Indian pudding?

    P.S. Found your blog based on a comment that you made in the NYTimes in the "Married to the Plan" article.

    1. Thanks for taking time to look and for your comments. The dessert is called "Bananas For Bananas" and it's composed of banana brioche pudding, salty peanut ice cream, peanut butter caramel, hot fudge, whipped cream- it was delicious!
