Just over four weeks ago I sent a tube of my spit to the good folks at Ancestry to learn more about my ethnicity. While I was initially told it would take 6-8 weeks for results, it only took a month – wahoo!
Surely, you’ve all seen the commercials by now. People all around the globe are sending in their DNA samples to find out who they really are. The cool folks at AncestryDNA™ were kind enough to gift me not one, but two AncestryDNA test kits!
Alloro. a lovely Italian spot on the Upper East Side.
This deliciousness to your right is eggplant parmigiana – my absolute favorite Italian food! And it was perfect! Yum yum yum. Couldn’t have asked for a better way to start off the meal.
For my entree, I decided on the seafood gnocchi which was indeed equally delicious. A dish filled with mussels, clams and shrimp, it was an excellent choice for a person who loves all things seafood like myself. My parents had me eating mussels and fried calamari at the tender age of 3! They joke that people in restaurants used to do double-takes when they saw little pipsqueak Jackie diving right in to eat these tentacled creatures. How could I resist?!
I had the cannoli for dessert and, being the sweets-addict that I am, failed to take a photo prior to polishing it off – whoops! I can assure you it looked as fancy as the first two dishes and was equally tasty.
Spread kindness and cheer, xo
