Casablanca, Smolak Farms & Food Inc.

This week, my sister Kelly and her wonderful boyfriend Brian have been visiting – it’s been so great getting to hang with them!

Last night we all went out to dinner at Casablanca in Andover. A – I friggin love Mexican food and B – I friggin love Casablanca. Excellent place, excellent service. We really enjoyed our meal and also enjoyed a ton of laughs – Meg was crying from laughing so hard most of the meal. She didn’t laugh hard enough to pee her pants though, which is good, because we were out at a restaurant.

Anyway, we decided to get these:

because Brian just celebrated his 21st birthday!!! Happy birthday BEM! :)

They were delicious! They were also HUGE. I felt like I could’ve dove right in and done a few laps.

Spicy habanero sauce oooweeee

Fun little fiesta!

Tonight, we went to the last Summer Chef Series at Smolak Farms in North Andover.  Chef Samuel Hunt of 15 Walnut was the featured chef – he did an amazing job! Even though it was raining, the event was still really great! There was a huge tent for everyone to hang out under and watch the food demo. We got a free sampling of a red wine (Clayhouse Vineyards Adobe Red, only $8.99, and very good!) thanks to the Wine Connection in North Andover. We also bought some food to munch on – I had the vegetarian minestrone and then peanut noodles and some of a lobster roll (which is funny because at work yesterday I was writing about Mexican food and had Mexican for dinner and then today at work I was writing about lobster and I had lobster for dinner.)

Pretty!

Heading in!
