Yep, another visit to Mister Nice Guy’s Bake Shop! Â Because today is New Years Eve and well, they had the babkas. Â And I’ve always wanted to try a babka ever since I saw that Seinfeld babka episode years ago. Â And if I didn’t go and try the babka I’d be wearing this face for all of 2013, because my grandmother used to say that whatever face you made on New Years Eve would stay with you for the following year:
On our way to the bake shop:
I enjoyed watching the animated conversation of this woman and man, who appeared to be neighbours. Â I could make out a little of their conversation in Italian. Â I love where I live, we have a great community of senior citizens with marvellous stories to tell. Â I thought this woman was adorable in her knee high pantyhose. Â Lame hack attempt at an artsy photo:
Union Road, Ascot Vale. Â I love the older buildings:
Arthur got his usual cinnamon bun. Â I asked if he’d ever get sick of these and he said NO WAY. Â Clearly, he won’t get sick of sticking his fork in the bun when I’m taking photos. Â He said today’s cinnamon bun “is one thousand billion out of 100, which is technically not correct but these are really good and deserve an impossible rating”:
And I tried the chocolate babka (yum!):
Demolition! Â With finesse:
The weather was gorgeous. Â When we got home we just relaxed a bit and Arthur got stuck in to his library books. Â He saved some of his cinnamon bun for DeeW.
We’ll spend a quiet new years eve at home. Â I have to prepare something for dessert as we’re heading to lunch tomorrow. Â I think I’ll make some chocolate cashew cream. Â I’m also hoping to make a Vasilopita. Â Stay tuned if you want to know what that is Â 🙂
Have a great new years, wherever you are!
