Taste of India after Dinner Sweets

Fennel seeds and hard sugar, like bits of sweet crystal, to finish our delicious dinner at Taste of India. I love the taste of licorice.

I looked up the name of these after dinner treats “used as digestive aid. and mouth freshener” Mukhwas

The waiter gave me two little containers to take home.

A six word Saturday.  Maura is reflected in Charlie’s sunglasses.  They were making faces together.  BTW this is the old Batman hat that was a hand-me-down from Michael.  Finished the replacement hat today. See below.

 

Christmas 2011   Jack and Michael received superhero hats from Grandma   I think Michael wished I had bought him LEGO  One of my favorite photos. 

The new Batman hat completed today December 28th

Looking around the walls of Mark and Erika’s home, I see several paintings by Pittsburgh artist William Pfahl.

He has a painting on the wall of the Pittsburgh Mayor’s Office, too. 

Here is the latest addition to their collection of Bill Pfahl’s art.
