Mike is in love with the food truck scene in New York City. His co-workers ask for advice and reviews of the various trucks inhabiting Midtown during the week. He has memorized the schedule of most of these trucks.
But the Street Sweets Truck, which I also love, is parked outside Mike's building almost everyday of the week.
The owner - a pretty, petite, friendly Italian woman - bakes amazing Macarellas, a layer of Nutella sandwiched between two thin coconut cookies. They are divine.
Mike also thinks they are divine. I don't necessarily feel threatened, but I don't want to take any chances when it comes to olive-skinned ladies who can make delicious baked goods.
So when Mike came home Friday evening, a long week of work and studying behind him and more studying on tap for the weekend, he was welcomed with my version of a chocolate coconut macaroon, complete with a fresh pot of French-press coffee.
