HARINA ARTISAN BAKERY CAFE : NEW DELICIOUS ON THE BLOCK

Admittedly, I’m an adult who still feeds myself like a child. Sigh.   I like sampling a volume of foods in considerable minute amounts to satisfy my taste buds and my always-hungry-appetite.  I never lose that wonder and usually smile my widest when delightful dishes pass my palates.

PAYDAY CASUAL DINNER DATE

It was supposed to be a spur-of-the-moment-dinner date with Tina that she thought of, just after we received our pay last month.
