So my friend M, who actually needs a pseudonym, I think I shall call her Madame, because she has french heritage and I don’t feel like typing out Mademoiselle all the time since I don’t even know how to spell it. Anyway, Madame is knitting me an alligator scarf, which looks something like this:

And while looking at the site where she got the pattern, I found this, which I think Appelina will like:

I just saw these on the Tiffany & Co. website. The Naughty/Nice are actually the opposite sides of a single charm. I think Appelina would love the cupcake charm. Tiffany has some great jewelry, although sometimes it can be expensive. But they are a good company and you can take your silver in any time and for $5 they will clean it for you and it will look like new.

I finally got my car washed yesterday and decided to take pictures while my car was going through the wash. I’ll use the gallery feature to post them, so click on them to see bigger views.

Saturday night my family and I went to Da Pasquale in Beverly Hills for dinner to break the Yom Kippur fast. This restaurant has the best marinated grilled veggie antipasto. Each veggie is marinated in a different way. I love the zucchini, eggplant, and carrots. I could eat them every day. We ate them before I remembered to take a picture. They also have fresh bread that you can dip in olive oil or balsamic vinegar. Here’s a pic:

I also forgot to take a picture of my salad. Here is half my meal. I got the pasta special. Two big sheets of pasta, one stuffed with spinach and cheese, the other with beef and bechamel sauce, then baked.

For dessert Hubby and I shared an Italian style cheesecake, Torta di Ricotta all’Arancio, and my mom had lemon sorbet served in a lemon, which made her very happy:

It was a good dinner.
