4:50pm strawberry cheesecake

05-18 strawberry cheesecake

It's going to be a glorious weekend, followed by showers on Monday, so I hope everyone has plans to be outside. Some things we have been talking about here at LUNCH over the past week:

Neither of our mother tongues is English, which may explain our fascination with language and translation, or we're just funny that way. If only we could learn these 25 handy words that don't exist in English, how helpful that would be in expressing ourselves.

Sometimes when I need a pick me up, we take a walk up the street to McNally Jackson. M. peruses books and I smell them. Though, as much as I love the scent of books, I'm not sure the "In the Library" perfume by CB I Hate Perfume is going to do it, though I'm tempted to try.

I'm a sucker for New York stories, like this brief one by Montea on cowbird or this long one about 5 girls in the late 50s starting in the publishing industry, The Best of Everything, by Rona Jaffe.

What will happen to us when the old grandmothers making varenykys in the basement depart this world? Who will fill us up with dumplings and stuffed cabbage?

There is only one week left to the Whitney Biennial so do put it on your list! We're trying to fit a visit and a meal at Untitled for sometime next week.

Have a fabulously sunny weekend!
