We spent a great deal of our time whilst in Philly *eating*!
Spent a fun morning in Reading Terminal Market. The food offerings there were wide and diverse -
- from homey, Amish fare -
- to the humorous and bizarre. I had a bacon-egg-spinach crepe there for breakfast. And fresh filled cannolis for dessert. :-)
We made our annual pilgrimage to the Italian Market -
(my husband's favorite Italian bakery. We've been visiting for years. More award winning cannolis!)
Spent a lovely evening at a tiny, hole-in-the-wall, awesome Mediterranean restaurant called Dmitri's - (Chocolate Pot de' creme? Oh.My.Goodness! Never tasted anything that yummy before I don't think...)
-made even better by good company (the lovely Christina Hess and fabulous Dominick Saponaro. Thanks for chauffeuring me around all day!) -
Made a special trip to Brusters - a gazillion-flavored ice cream franchise that Seattle is sadly lacking...
And then there is my husband's regional mecca of cheese-steaky goodness - Pat's (of Rocky's fame) -
(If you are ever there and needing to order - make sure you read the directions first!)
...happy, happy man!
There were also authentic sub sandwiches (with extra extra sweet peppers), Chinese buffets and Korean BBQ's.
I think I gained 10 lb.s, but it was certainly fun! I've really missed some of those things.
