Sights and Tastes of Boston

Yesterday I had a great time exploring Boston. I started off with a BIG bowl of banana oatmeal that included 1/3 cup of oatmeal, 1/3 cup of milk, 1/3 cup of water, 1/2 of a banana, coconut, a big scoop of raisins, peanut butter, raspberry preserves. I also had some coffee.

Then I proceeded to go on a 2 mile walk around Boston's South End Neighborhood. Here are a few Boston sights along the way......

After a lovely walk I took the bus to Harvard Square to meet my dad for lunch. We went to Henrietta's Table to enjoy another restaurant week lunch.

My dad and I enjoyed our lunch on the patio taking in the sights and tastes of Harvard Square.

I started with the spinach salad with native blackberries, goat cheese and spicy maple pecan vinaigrette.

Next I had the baked scrod with potatoes. This meal was SOOOOOOOO good. One of the freshest yet simplest meals I have had. I felt like I was in the south of France enjoying a lovely lunch!

After lunch I said goodbye to my dad and headed downtown to meet a friend for a little shopping. We had such a great time catching up and trying to find deals. I ended up buying a pair of work pants on sale from $80 for $46 at Ann Taylor Loft! I love finding deals!

After shopping I met Evan for a drink at a local bar and then headed home for dinner which was inspired by my friend Laura: Mexican Bowls.

My bowl included mexican rice, beans, corn, red and green peppers, cheese and salsa! Evan and I enjoyed a glass of Smoking Loon Cabernet Sauvignon with dinner. What a GREAT day enjoying Boston like a tourist. Have a great Saturday and HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY to my brother Jon!!! I will be out celebrating with him tonight.......
