Well, how's a blogger supposed to follow that?
Before we dive headlong into a year or so of wedding pie selections and whether the lechon should be served at the reception, my week in California included other developments aside from the sparkly-sparkly kind. For one thing, my brother graduated from UCLA.
For another, while we were in town, I was introduced to Westwood's famous Diddy Riese Cookies.
Each time we walked by, there was a line at least fifteen deep that trailed down the street. But if you are patient, at the end you can buy one delicious, freshly made cookie for only 35 cents. Or you can get two cookies with ice cream packed in between them. Yummy.
Or you can get a cookie and a hot dog and have yourself a dinner for about a buck fifty.
