Now typing this out makes it seem a lot more productive than it felt at the time, so I am going to give myself a little pat on the back, as I sit here contemplating what I will do for a run today.
On to dinner...my group of friends try to do at least 1 dinner together a month. Last year, a couple of them decided it would be a great idea to host a Passover dinner, to share their culture - the food, the prayers, the wine! We all hands down agreed this was a must, and why hadn't it happened earlier!
|Take two on the shot...good looking group|
Last night was year 2 of passover with friends, but we were missing a key participant - he is Tripp's sailing partner, so inevitably he got Tripp and Wendy's, I got a great group of friends, food and wine), so we refrained from the prayers and steps involved with eating dinner/drinking your wine (which is a nice touch, because you not only learn a little about the religion/holiday, but you also really slow down your food intake, which is healthy right?) Anyways....back to the food! We had a chicken baked with soup nuts and apricot marmalade, salmon baked in white wine, sweet potato fries (can't have bread, so this was our starch - and a personal fave), brocolli and a mixed salad. All in all a great meal - that was only complete with the fantastic flourless chocolate torte (with homemade choc mousse - wish i took a pic!) and vanilla ice cream to top it off (oh yeah, there was some fruit on the side). This was all washed down by some delicious white wine and a small taster of dessert red (4 glasses = some, right?).
So after a bottle of wine in my gut, more torte than I thought I could consume at that point, and a T to catch before it turned into a pumpkin at midnight (yes Boston public transport) - I just receieved the icing on the cake - a whole, unopened box, of Almond NutThins!!!! Although I do not follow a Gluten Free diet (should probably look into incorporating that in at some point) - these are one of my FAVORITE crackers, next to Triscuits of course!
I would give my night, after scaring my roommate and slightly embarassing myself, an A+...I had my friends, wine, and amazing food - plus I fit in a little sweat in the process - and, as it is Earth Day and all, I took the T and stayed green :)
Traveling back to Greenfield (home) tonight for Easter weekend - so hopefully I will cook up something good to chat about and share! Stay tuned...
