Today seems to be the “middle” point for many birthdays: David, Talia, Olivia, Helene (and Dennis, who we celebrated last week)! Happy birthday, all you Junies!
Snack at the Office:
Office Birthdays Celebration:
Lots of sweets! The chocolate cake was a good amount of sweetness (since I influenced the initial amount of sugar added, Sylvia and Jeannette had to add more sugar), and the chocolate was quite rich. I personally cannot make sugar cookies — all that butter and sugar! — but do occasionally enjoy one with a cup of tea or coffee. This was sweet, as expected, and should have been paired with a hot beverage. I don’t know how the sago pudding tasted (the office seemed to really like it!) but the fruit and tapioca were good.
Dinner at Banh Mi Saigon, Northampton, MA:
Very sweet coffee, but at least the profile was strong. The sandwich could have used less mayo but was still flavourful. Some jalapeno would have helped as well — I definitely added a lot of sriracha sauce. I can’t decide if I like the banh mi or pho better, so I guess it depends on what I’m feeling that day.
Late Night Snack:
