@PennyAroundTheWorld,
Thanks for the extended tour, Penny.
Almost like being there with you! Smile
Fascinating.

And keep an eye on your waistline, hear?
I fear the tsar could be leading you astray, gastronomically I mean. Wink

Ok, now I'm very hungry (currently simmering some ravioli in a previously made braised meat sauce).
Penny, such a good cook you are!

Sorry for the seeming lack of activity for the past couple of weeks or so.

Tsarstepan has been too laxed in uploading the photos.

Yesterday we went to the movies after work.

More photographs of the past couple weeks will be coming soon.

@PennyAroundTheWorld,
Penny, I finally learned how to control the slide show speed. For others who don't know, look to the top of the screen and click on options. I changed mine to Slow and am much relieved. Now I'm going to go back and re-look at some of the other Penny in New York series, so I can stare at them longer.

@PennyAroundTheWorld,
Last week, Tsarstepan and me went to a Japanese BBQ restaurant with a few coworkers.
http://i51.tinypic.com/o9hgs9.jpg
Here, I am studying the menu.
http://i51.tinypic.com/2dhsgow.jpg
At the restaurant, the gimmick is that the customer cooks his or her meat at the table. I have to study the grill at the table. Safety first!

I take a turn at cooking a piece of steak.

Tsarstepan and me walk home after going to the movies after dinner. I noticed a new ice cream shop along the walking route.

We end the day with a big bowl of blueberry crumbcake ice cream.

@ossobuco,
Ossobuco, it was quite fun to cook and equally delicious to eat.

Below is our trip to the park on July 6. Went to Pier 63 on the Hudson River to an outdoor screening of The Social Network:
http://s1190.photobucket.com/albums/z455/tsarstepan/Social%20Network%20July%206/?albumview=slideshow

Sorry guys but photobucket like the rest of the slideshows has a mind of its own and once again, throws the order of the photographs out of order. Still, enjoy them. Quite a fun afternoon and evening for a picnic and movie.

@Roberta,
Penny, we had a gathering in Boston yesterday and we met some new friends for you (the zombies are friendly; just don't let them too close to your brains!)

First, a pic from the back:

Then a hand came over (which belonged to RP) and helped them turn to face me.

And here they are facing me!

@Barry The Mod,
I believe that no one should travel around the world sans passport or Red Sox cap.

On close inspection the Penster has lost her whistle and some of her whiskers.The whistle can be replaced.
She awakened early and soaked up the morning sun on the balcony....
