That night I met Ma' (Jay's Mom) and "AliBop" (Jay's niece). Afterwards, Lyphe, Jay, Crystal and I headed out to a bar in White Plains to meet people from a social group that Lyphe belonged to. I had the best calamari there! The sauce was tangy, yet light. Mmmmm!
The next day it was off to meet Jay's Dad and step mom, Jenny. Wow, can Jenny cook! She made the best chicken, rice and pigeons peas this side of town (or I guess it would be that side of town). Jay and I tried to recreate the meal last night, but it just wasn't the same! As you can imagine, I did a lot of eating in NY! Roy, Jay's Dad, gave me some Jamaican wine. I must say I am not a fan of wine, but this was so delicious. It didn't have that bitter taste that I am used to. It was sweet and had a kick to it. It was cool hanging with Jay's Dad. There are things he would say that reminded me so much of my Dad, which was comforting.
We made it off to Jay's aunt's house and met more family!
But before we went, I had to have a picture with the family, too!
That evening we went to "Squeaky's" (Jay's brother) house and meet more family. Their dog gave us a welcome... he got so comfortable that he passed out and tooted! Man, that dog can clear a room! We decided to walk back to Ma's house and as you can see we were COLD!
Now, being from the West Coast, we don't have all the same dinning options as the East Coast. Those of you with White Castles in your area might be shock to know that I never have enjoyed one of there burgers until now!
