Alex achieved the almost impossible today with a little help from George. He cleared out enough space in my sainted Aunt's basement to fit all of our boxes and unloaded the truck Except for a few bookshelves which are parked in her living room, our lives are basically stored in Forest Hills until we establish our next permanent location. Miracles do happen. Thanks Al! Last I heard he was waiting for Chinese food and putting his feet up for a well-deserved rest. I can only imagine how the vast amounts of Chinese he's consumed in the last few days will affect our next couple of menus.
In answer to the many questions we've received lately, we are continuing the blog. We will be cooking in New York and we will also be eating out, so that element of our writing will be revived. Hopefully things will only get better here in the new year as we plan on having many exciting adventures to chronicle, both in the kitchen and beyond. Our priorities once we've finished up here are finding a new venue for our food and preparing for our cruise with Holland America in February. Neither of us has ever been to Australia or New Zealand and we look forward to expanding our horizons. There are only a few more evenings at Keyah Grande and they will be bittersweet. The nice thing about ending on New Year's Eve is that that entire staff will be there with us. It will be our last hurrah and then we hit the road and it's all about new beginnings, although we won't forget the lessons learned or the fond memories that we'll carry with us to our future destinations.
