Boston Restaurant Week: Gaslight

I wasn’t impressed with Gaslight‘s restaurant week menu. But before I get to that, let me tell you about the first half of my Tuesday. Instant oatmeal for breakfast, a little on the watery side, but I did add extra raisins for flavor and to up the filling-factor. Homemade ice coffee! Dried apples slices for […]

A Mixed Up Monday

So this post is going to be a big mix up of foods.  From dinner Sunday night all the way until breakfast this morning. Typical Sunday night =Sushi + the Amazing Race I ordered Sweet Potato Tempura rolls and Kappa Maki rolls.  Jared’s fishy fish rolls were squeezed in between my nice veggie rolls. Mmm, […]

Boston Common Coffee Co. Sample #1

Costa Rica LaMinita Roast profile: A central American single-origin varietal from Bill McAlpin’s LaMinita estate.  Considered a premium coffee, it is meant to be roasted light to light-medium to accentuate its characteristics, which are a pleasant acidity, sweetness, and nice body.  A very clean coffee with a smooth finish! To properly test these beans, they […]

Drink Coffee…

“…Do Stupid Things Faster With More Energy” For the past 2 months, I’ve been e-mailing back and forth with Patrick Maloney, the roastmaster at Boston Common Coffee Co. I’ve been learning some great facts about coffee, different growing regions and coffee varieties, etc. etc.  I think about coffee as something I sip on in the […]

We celebrated the […]

Haunted Gingerbread House

Last night, I dedicated a large portion of my time to decorating my Halloween-themed gingerbread house.  I accidentally added too much water to the icing so it was too runny.  I had a hard time preventing it from dripping down the front of the house.  Eventually, I just went nuts and drizzled orange and purple […]

Recovering and Recapping

After shedding a few tears of frustration and attending the Shecky’s Girl’s Night Out event, I am starting to get over my bad mood from yesterday.  I have a meeting at 10:15 to discuss whether or not I need to take the prerequisite undergrad computer course before I can get a diploma.  Thanks for the […]

Start Your Engines

Jared brewed our new Pecan Rum coffee. It made the whole apartment smell yummy. When I went outside with the dog, I found the world’s tiniest snail crawling on our deck. Aww! Look at the little guy! I made French Toast for breakfast. I mixed 1 egg, milk, and a bit of cinnamon together, and […]
