MY FAVORITE PERSON

So I've been pretty busy the past several days because my favorite person has been in town and I haven't had a chance to blog. They got here on Thursday and it's been a whirlwind ever since. We went to dinner that night at this Cuban restaurant called Versailles and devoured the oxtail, rice and plantain! For those of you who have never tried oxtail, you are definitely missing out!!

Friday morning, we went to the track for a couple hours, did the workout thing, then had lunch, ran a bunch of errands and then went to the Lakers game. We weren't exactly courtside:(, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!! The Lakers won and so that made it all the better. I can't believe I forgot to take my camera, so there's no photographic evidence.

Yesterday, I had a yard sale and I made $500. Not too shabby for a last minute idea to get rid of waaaay too much athletic gear. Then we went to the movies and saw Doubt with Glenn Close and Philip Seymour Hoffman. This movie was awesome, full of intrigue and....doubt, lol. I give it two thumbs up.

This morning we went to church at my home church here in LA, First AME. As usual, it was an excellent service. I don't usually like it when my pastor doesn't preach but I'm happy to say that the guest pastor delivered a great word. Plus, the choir saaaaang, you know the kinda "sangin'" I mean. And then sadly, my favorite person had to leave to get back to their own life this afternoon. I had such a great few days. The time seemed to just fly by, but you know what they say about time flying when you're having fun!!

I can't wait to see her again, my mother that is.....in just another week or so when I go home for Christmas!!!

Sooooo what is your friends name??? J/k! You had a good time with your friend-that must feel really good. I need a friend that can make me feel that good.

It was my mother! Maybe I didn't do a good enough job at the end of making the reference clear that it was my mom, and that I can't wait to see her again in another weeks or so...

I got that it was your mom and I think that is awesome!! I'd love some time like that with my mom but she just gets so distracted by her grandkids whenever we come to visit! LOL!

I had oxtail in some restaurant in NY years ago and LLLLUUUUVVVVDDDDDEEEDDD IT! But every time I've had it since the oxtail has been long on fat and short on actual meat. Every. Single. Time. And I've been going to what are supposedly top notch island-themed restaurants here in the D.C. urrea. Any recommendtions, short of preparing it myself.?

Anonymousnupe: I'm sorry, I don't know of any authentic Caribbean restaurants in that area. All I can say is that if it's not an actual Jamaican or Cuban restaurant, chances are high that they won't get it right. Oxtail isn't easy to master as far as the preparation is concerned because the meat has to be cooked in a pressure cooker. But aside from that, if the cut of meat isn't right to begin with, then that's a whole 'nother problem.

Eclectik: Lol@ the $50 loan....
