It's that time of year again... December 3rd

Hard to believe the holidays are already upon us... Hanukkah is already underway and Christmas is coming... Yesterday I went up to Rockefeller Center to see the tree!

(It looks better at night when you can see all the lights!)

But not before stopping to see the tree they put up in my building's lobby!

Earlier this week I had lunch with Melissa at our usual spot, Sea Thai.

I got the spring rolls and broad rice noodle with tofu.

After lunch I stopped in the Chelsea Market and picked up some rainbow cookies at a bakery there. (I had been craving these for a while!!)

Wednesday morning I stopped in Elephant and Castle for breakfast... It was SO rainy out, but they decorated the restaurant nice for the holidays!

I got their "California" breakfast... which included eggs, french toast, hash browns, tea (or coffee), orange juice, and I substituted the bacon for fruit.

This is truly the BEST breakfast in Manhattan... you get all this for only $10 and their food is really good too!!!

When I was uptown visiting the tree, I stopped in Saks because I had a gift card to use there. Remarkably I didn't buy anything (everything was SO overpriced!!!). But I did stop in SnAKS (their cafe) for lunch.

I got their grilled cheese with potato strings. Despite the small portion, this was filling.

And finally, Peanut has been cuddling up on the blankets in this cold weather!!

In his usual position that we call "the duddy," where he "duddies" his arms about up over his head! lol

I watched the show on T.V. where they turned the lights on that tree on. I'd love to be able to see it one day in person!
