To Eat or Not to Eat.. I EAT

I must have mentioned how much I love to eat, especially good food. Who wouldn't?! I think I actually did quite a bit of eating while in Philadelphia. Met up with my Godfather that day, Mark, Grams and I went to Midtown Continental. Loved the decor of the place and the food was simple, but very good. It wasn't too expensive either. Cannot say why I like this page so much; it looks really busy. But I love the many colors and as busy as it may look, it feels complete.

Not a Chocolate Fan

You'd be surprise to know that I do not like chocolate. YES! GASP! Someone who doesn't like chocolate. It happens. But I do love my hot chocolate (and white chocolate, which is not really chocolate). When Mark and I went to Philadelphia, we went to a chocolate cafe called Naked Chocolate Cafe. I am not too picky when it comes to the quality of my hot chocolate, but I remember that the hot chocolate here was super thick. I could barely drink it. However, their chocolates are an exquisite site. Don't think I will be going there anytime soon again, but there are surely many more chocolate shops I would love to see and visit. I think New York City has more than enough for me to visit in my lifetime. I have been to more chocolate shops in two years than the twenty-one years prior 2008 : Max Brenner, Jacque Torres & many more that I cannot even remember the name of.

What I love to do is collect items from all these places and put them in my scrapbook. The bag and menu from Naked Chocolate Cafe are on the page.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love to eat? When I was a sophomore, Grams and I asked Mr. Brodman to go have dinner with us and share his travel story. Since then, it has been tradition. Mr. Brodman and Grams has started recommending better and better places to have dinner. Trust me our visits have been divine. While Grams being in Philly, she did a great job scoping out the amazing restaurants in her area. Especially the Stephen Starr ones. But this page isn't a memory of our occasional dinners.

Mark and I went to Philadelphia for a weekend, and for two nights in a row, we tried some well-known restaurants in Philadelphia. Parc was still relatively new so I was super excited that I was trying before Grams did. The food was super good, I have had better but it satisfied my hungry appetite.

What I love to do is also collect a bunch of memorabilia from these restaurants, I think it was a Grams thing; but I use them to scrapbook. I think it brings great color to the page, and I love how I brought out the green in Parc's lettering.
