With a schedule in hand, my mom and I embarked on an adventure in New York. While I was set to start the day, my mom was ready to start on her first cup of coffee.
We found a neat cafe nearby called Nectar Cafe. My mom really wanted something with smoked salmon, so we ordered a lox eggs bennie. What we received was something different than your typical eggs benedict and a much larger portion than anticipated. Served in a deep dish bowl, eggs and salmon were layered on a bed of croissants with an accompaniment of hashbrowns. I have a weird tendency to drown my hashbrowns in syrup; I think it tastes better.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is huge. We were there for several hours; each room leading into another and another room. I was disappointed that some of the exhibits I had wanted to see where no longer running, but even so, it was a great visit.
