Mimi is officially 2 months old today, and while she has not had much of a presence on the blog, rest assured she is very present in our every day happenings. Perhaps when I get a handle on this two-kids-bit, I will upload photos of her.
Now on to the real business. This woman. This woman here is my mom.
She arrived 10 days after Mimi was born and stayed a full month. Seriously, she's the best. While most of our excitement took place at home, mama wanted to visit a place introduced to her by her good friend Guy Fieri. And how could I deny such a simple (and delicious) request from a woman who traveled 1600 miles to clean my bathrooms and make me dinner?
Having worked in a real East Coast deli in her youth, my mom's heart palpitated for corned beef--pickled on site, chopped liver, and any nosh involving lox. And boy, did she have her options. The menu was enormous.
Oh this is getting ridiculous; it's as big as my daughter.
The menu's size could only be matched by its Reuben,
its Tuna Melt,
And most importantly, its cheesecake topped with chocolate mousse (which the 4 of us shared).
We even got to meet Ziggy while we were there and did a little (unsuccessful) pacifier-training.
The food and experience were well-worth the price. Thanks K&Z for bringing our family together for a yummy meal and an invaluable lesson that, like everything else, family photos with two children are infinitely more difficult than family photos with one.
