Back from Boston. Swamped at work. So quick post.
1. Friday night in Boston, checked into Westin lounged on heavenly bed. Had to drag myself off for dinner. Friend and I went for a Guinness at an Irish bar nearby. For some reason, Guinness always tastes a little better in Boston. Then on to a splurge at Abe & Louie's for steaks. I love having a girl friend who isn't afraid to eat steaks with me....and creamed spinach. I had a rib eye which is hard to mess up - and they didn't. The spinach was as good as I have ever had. The grilled asparagus was also good, but as you know creamed vegetables go down a little easier for me. A highlight was the bottle of Flora Springs Cabernet that we split. Delicious, but pretty much everything I've had from this vineyard is great.
2. Saturday went to dinner at cousins in nearby town. Loved the cream cheese, wasabi, and soy sauce hors d'ouvre that she had out. And the "ugly cake" for dessert (her description, not mine) was lemony and sweet and a great topper to a great meal.
3. Sunday I came home to a houseful of football fans just in time to partake in their order of Carl's steaks. I need to buy more Frank's hotsauce - it really is the best for steak sandwiches. As you probably know, this is what makes Buffalo chicken wings taste as fantastic as they do. Which reminds me, I haven't had wings in ages. Who's up for wings this week?
