My Life According to Me

Here's what's going on in my life....according to yours truly :)

Newest literary conquest - a recommendation from Simon. I'm about...9 pages in. It's dense.

View of downtown on one of my walks

Flowers make me oh so happy

I love the contrast between the flowering tree and the house color

Wine and Cheese Party! 

Christie's place is beautiful (and she hosts a mean party)

Oh my goodness - SO GOOD.

There must have been 15 different kinds of cheese there

This honey is DIVINE - apparently there's a honey store near Harvard Square and they sell this Tasmanian honey. I'll let you know when I visit the store on my own :)

Take 1 (Ambra and Emily) - Candid

Take 2 - Surprise

Take 3 - *cheese!*

It was a wonderful evening - we'll have to do it again soon!

I broke down and ate one of my remaining Kinder Eggs - this little guy was inside

On Tuesday I was traveling for work and stopped at O'Connor's for lunch

Got to try the Scotch Egg


Guinness Stew Pot Pie

I was traveling with a coworker who was familiar with the area and we took a quick walk - lovely bench under a tree...

...overlooking this meadow...

...on this country lane

And I found a beautiful buttercup

We stopped at Bolton Orchards where there was this gem - FRESH cider for 5 cents a cup


So excited! 

On to the beautiful Bolton Public Library for more work

Gorgeous - I could spend a lot of time working there

Rounded out the day with a Buffalo Chicken Calzone at Classic's (the only thing that should ever be ordered there)

Gorgeous flowers at Hope's house

The community group ladies

Crepes for breakfast with CJ after we had a sleepover :)

Tea Party at CJ's!

Lisa made a *wonderful* key lime tarte

Blue Steel


Tea Party Ladies

Jean Jacket Ladies (gangsta pose)

Polished off my jar of European Nutella

First time making fiddleheads - so easy (and tasty)! Blanch the fiddleheads and then saute them in vegetable oil with fresh garlic and some artisan salt (see photo below)

I visited Pemberton Farms for the first time (how is this possible?! I've lived near it for 2 years!) and they had a small business owner showcasing his product - these wonderful artisan salts. The Hot Habanero Blend from Beyond the Shaker is awesome - a slow burning heat (but not too hot!). 

On to cooking dinner... :)

  1. Oh, My Goodness--I'm off to make tea. Right now. And I need more info about the fiddleheads!
