WIAW #3

Another random What I Ate Wednesday!

A random dinner that consisted of chicken cooked in Mrs. Dash’s poultry seasoning, lemon pepper, and garlic powder, and roasted asparagus. Simple but so yummy. Paired with Guinness (which I’m starting to like…) for St. Patrick’s Day!

I finally tried sweetgreen! I had the day off of work so I met my boyfriend for lunch and we checked out their Back Bay location. (That’s his blurry hand in the pic.) I had their March salad, and it was AMAZING. Anything with bacon and blue cheese is a sure winner.

My coworkers and I had to try the cookie dough Oreos. They were really good- but I think I like the birthday cake ones better!

My boyfriend surprised me with champagne after I received some exciting news at my job! It was delicious.

I also tried Machu Picchu restaurant this weekend with my boyfriend and his family. Having been to Peru, I was excited to see what Peruvian food in Boston is like. I didn’t get any pictures (bad blogger!) but the ceviche was to die for. I will definitely go back!

Last night I had an amazing meal and cocktail at Temple Bar. Temple Bar is one of my favorite restaurants and I really enjoy all their sister restaurants as well. They had a great prix fixe menu for Dine Out Boston (restaurant week), and I ordered rabbit pate and a seafood risotto. I didn’t take any pictures again, but it was so yummy.

Have you had any extra-special meals lately?

My second WIAW post is here! I haven’t captured a full day of eating because I always forget to take a picture and then usually forget what I even ate. So instead I will just provide you with the highlights of the last week or so!

My sister spent the weekend with me and we ordered pizza from Stone Hearth Pizza Co. She was exhausted from midterms, it was freezing, and it was the perfect night to order pizza and watch a movie.

I FINALLY tried cauliflower crust pizza. I thought it was delicious and it got the boyfriend seal of approval! I used this recipe, but there are so many recipes out there and now I want to try them all. We topped ours with spinach and mushrooms, and it was SO GOOD.

I had an amazing burger and beer at Cambridge Brewing Company with a few friends from college. I have no pictures, but I ordered the CBC Burger and tried their Regatta Golden beer which was really yummy. I loved it- I will definitely be going back!

I also tried baking espresso banana bread from Food52. It turned out really yummy! My boyfriend helped by making me espresso in our stovetop espresso maker. I didn’t include instant espresso granules because I didn’t have them, but next time I might to amp up the espresso flavor- but the bread was still delicious.

For St. Patrick’s Day, I made these cupcakes. I don’t have any pictures of them, which is probably for the best as my frosting looks like it was done by a 5 year old. I know St. Patrick’s Day is over, but you should make them. I don’t even really like Bailey’s and have only just started to like Guinness, but I LOVED these cupcakes.

Happy Wednesday!

First WIAW!

Many of the blogs I read participate in What I Ate Wednesday and I think it looks like such a fun link up! I haven’t captured a full day of what I ate, unfortunately, because I can never remember to do that. Instead I just have a few recent, delicious things I have been eating to share with you.

I have been loving green smoothies for breakfast! I usually make a fruit smoothie with almond milk, a banana, and whatever frozen fruit I have on hand, and then just throw a handful of spinach in on top. Its a good way to make sure I get a few extra veggies in that day- and you can’t even taste the spinach! 😉

A delicious almond milk latte at dwelltime, a great little coffee shop in Cambridge. My boyfriend, quite the coffee snob, really enjoyed their black coffee as well.

A delicious sandwich from Darwin’s, one of my favorite sandwich places in Cambridge. All of their sandwiches are so good- you really can’t go wrong.

I made How Sweet It Is garlic brown sugar flank steak with chimichurri for our Valentine’s day dinner. Here’s my food processor filled with fresh herbs

All dressed up for Valentine’s day dinner- any date where you can be in PJs is one that I’m okay with.

The chimichurri was delicious, and steak is always a winner in my book. We used the leftover chimichurri sauce the rest of the week on EVERYTHING.

Hope you enjoyed reading about some of the food I enjoyed this past month. I am going to be much better at documenting next week!
