You know how they say there’s no better feeling than coming home? I have found that to be especially true this week. I have just been at such peace being back in my own bed, snuggling with my cat children and being able to see my dear friends again.
I actually had Monday off, so I was able to meet my two best friends for lunch and it was so good to catch up. Even though, I was only gone for a week and a half, it felt like months. I’m not exaggerating at all…but I really think when I landed in Augusta over the weekend that everything was in hyper mode. The trees and the grass just looked so vividly green. The sun felt so ridiculously warm. All that to say, I am very much enjoying being home.
The thing that I do miss about Boston? The food. Oh, the food is so good there – specifically, the seafood. Although I didn’t get to really get out and see Boston last week, I was able to go to some of Boston’s best restaurants because a girl’s still gotta eat!
I don’t know what I loved more: the salmon or the sweet potatoes. (Atlantic Fish Co.)
Just one of the many cups of clam chowder I consumed.
I discovered my new favorite type of cheese and it’s name is Gouda. (The Salty Pig)
The absolute best restaurant I ate at while in Boston was Abe & Louie’s. I actually ate there twice. Both times I ordered the Judy Garland, which is my new favorite cocktail ever FYI. As if I needed another reason to love this restaurant, check out their version of bacon:
I don’t know why, but a lot of restaurants in Boston have Brussels Sprouts on their menu. I wasn’t complaining! (Towne Stove)
Dessert Sampler at Mistral
And when in doubt…Godiva chocolates. Always Godiva chocolates.
So, who is hungry? : )
What is your favorite type of cheese?
What is one vegetable you’d like to see on more restaurant menus?
