Sweet Potato Cake
May 25, 2011
Hello from Charlotte, South Carolina. This is such a charming area, too bad I just spent the last three hours at the airport. I'm in town for a board meeting and last night our group went to Mert's for Soul Food. Salmon cakes, chicken wings bigger than a newborn, chitlins and black-eyed peas were starring. And, if you ever eat here you must get the sweet potato cake, yes I said cake. You'll want the banana pudding (so good Elvis would have cried), the peach cobbler and red velvet cake too. But trust me, this was one of the best medley of cake I've ever had in my life. In my opinion the sweet stuff was better than the plated fare.
Now I'm back at the airport. It took one hour to get through security and here I sit waiting to return to JFK airport. I wonder where everyone is going at 3:00 PM on a Thursday, it doesn't take this long to get through security in New York. I look at people and wonder where their travels will take them. I see women wearing sandals who are probably beach bound and others in knee high leather boots and trench coats. I'm not sure where they could be off to but the taking off and the putting back on of those boots is probably what's slowing down security.
Its been said that shoes can really "make the woman," but I think they just make her broke. Neiman Marcus in NYC has an entire block dedicated to their shoe department in Manhattan; it even has its own zip code. But mark my word, this weekend the hot shoe will be Old Navy flip flops, they are so reasonably priced many women buy a couple of different pair in fun colors. It tends to be a yearly ritual before beach season officially starts, so start your (plane) engines.
