Hola. Miguel and my sister have gone back to Spain! We had one last dinner with the folks before they left. We all met up in Astoria at a Greek seafood restaurant, which meant a lot of side dishes for me. It was fine, and I understand that my parents wanted to make sure Miguel really experienced all the diversity of the city.
On the way over, there was a rainbow and an amazing sunset:
Once we all got there, we started with bread and a big salad for everyone to share. And white wine.
Then some grilled vegetables: eggplant, zucchini, pepper.
Liz with the plate of veggies.
Everyone ordered some fish. I ate more salad, plus some of these lemony roasted potatoes. They were very good.
Here Liz is showing the onesie Miguel bought for his niece! Too cute.
We finished the meal with ouzo with ice water. Liz, Miguel, and I went into Manhattan to meet up with some of her friends at a bar. I stayed for a couple more beers and that was that! It was so nice to see her after so long and so nice to meet miguel. I hope to make it to Spain sometime to visit them.
Also, sorry I have not been posting as much as I'd like to. I have been busy, though not always in friend or food ways. I want to make it to 20 posts for the MoFo month. I'll have another post up later today, and hopefully one tomorrow.
