Look What Yam Aunty Spotted Kismet's Shop

Look what Yam Aunty is pointing to.
Kismet has a shop in Nati City
Kismet does not squeal like a stool pigeon!
Why she kept this shop a secret!

Well for all those of you who have e-mailed me about pictures,  my Lee only took two the last day.
Yam Aunty took 87,000 and her visit to my Nati City you will see through her eyes camera lens on her blog.
But I will tell you where Lee took her out to eat. One a upscale chain restaurant.
Cowspotdog loves this restaurant like Lee does.
Maggiano's Little Italy The chef came out and talked to Yam Aunty and prepared a special pasta dish just for her. A fettuccine alfredo without the garlic with fresh asparagus, snow peas, grill red peppers and other seasonal vegetables.

The next night it was a Nati City historic place to dine.
The Rookwood sits atop the hillside in Mt. Adams with panoramic views of the Ohio River and downtown Cincinnati on the deck. Immersed in Cincinnati culture.  Special touches, like Edison light bulbs one of the Cincinnati's great historic landmarks.  We had the dinner salad which was ~         
Heirloom Beets  ~ roast beets, baby arugula, shaved fennel, sheep feta, curried cashews, charred orange vinaigrette . 
You can even eat inside of an original kiln.

The last morning we had a tea party.
We had a  beautiful 3 tiered stand. Each tier was adorned with an assortment of their hand crafted delicacies.
The top had an assortment of their delicate finger sandwiches which were made of cucumber and fresh borsin cheese, veggie cream cheese and egg salad on their homemade buttery dill biscuit.

The middle and most important layer serves up their handcrafted famous desserts from their Bakery.
 It had buttery tea cookies, french macarons (to die for) and their petite double fudge brownies dark chocolate.

The bottom and final tier offers an assortment of mini scones made fresh each morning from their classic English  scone recipe, slices of their specialty French quiche served warm tucked in next to thick slices of fruit dark nut bread and fresh seasonal berries.  The quiche was a spinach and asiago cheese rich and warm.
They have a menu of teas perhaps thirty or more to choose from.  Lee and Janet had Silver Needles and Yam Aunty tried Bengal Tiger Tea blend popular in Nati City because of our Football team The Bengals.
They have a collections of tea pots.  Yam Aunty said the second one from left looked like flat Madi.

We saw over fifty historic sites in Nati City in two and a half days.
So I know Yam Aunty will have many pictures for you.
I, Sweet William The Scot, want to especially thank the Cincinnati Observatory.  Domes were opened especially for her because she has a deep interest in astronomy.
I also want to thank The BonBonerie for opening the tea room early an serving us an early tea.
Yam Aunty loves architecture so Nati City provided her likes.

Thanks for being a  friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of  mine
