Walking With Our Mouths Full

Short Rib Taco at La Verdad

I blame all this lovely spring weather that we’ve been having, it seems we can’t get enough of walking around our fair city and stopping to try out some local spots as we go. Last week we took a 10 mile walk and this week two 5 mile walks – we’ve gotta find some way to stay in shape, after all! There’s just been so many places that we want to try and we’ve found that it’s the best and most enjoyable way to both get some fresh air and exercise, while having fun and sampling some local eats. Armed with my iPhone and trusty Instagram, here’s some pictures from the past two weeks’ walks…

Pig Intestines at China King

We had some good food (China King), some that wasn’t our favorite (Villa Mexico, Griddlers) and then some exceptionally good food from La VerdadRead the rest of this entry »

One busy weekend..

I wish we had more pictures from this weekend to share with you but it was a non-stop marathon of cooking and running all over town, we barely had time to pause and take a breath. Our weekend really started on Thursday, when we went shopping for the weekend and planning out, as best we could, how the weekend would go. Friday morning we began prepping for another one of our big Harvard dinner parties. On the menu: Mixed greens with Gorganzola crostini, apple matchsticks and a bacon vinaigrette, Classic Beef Bourguignon served over Potato puree and homemade Peanut Butter Cookies drizzled with chocolate for dessert. By Saturday, we were up, bright and early with a large cup of coffee in hand,  and we headed back to Harvard to accomplish as much as we could before heading to the South End to teach a three-hour burger class at the BCAE.
