This past weekend was a great one. It’s been really busy moving into a new apartment so it was so nice to get a chance to A – spend some quality time with Colin at the Josh Turner concert at the South Shore Music Circus on Friday night (it was amazing! A new musician, Brent Cobb opened – he was reeeally good; great voice. Even if you don’t like country I think you’d like him…) B – got to spend some quality time with Meg at the Andover farmers market and the Peach Festival at Smolak Farms (my new favorite place) and C – some quality time with one of my best friends, my college roommate, Danielle who I haven’t seen in SO long – it was wonderful to catch up!
One of my favorite Josh Turner songs (*please note – all my favorite dance moves are in the 80’s scene. Gotta love the 80’s people.)
The concert –
Good combo :)
The Farmers Market -
Ummmm a bacon scented candle? Bacon all the time? Yes, please.
One of the most delicious treats in the world. I LOVE FOOD!
Smolak Farms Peach Festival –
Hard little worker
The Jimmy Fund Fantasy Day at Fenway recap coming soon! :)
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.)
Peanut noodles :)
Samples of Caprese Salad with peach
So when we got home tonight we watched Food Inc. It was SO interesting and SO made me never want to eat chicken again. Yay!
Did you see Food Inc? What did you think of it all??
