Thursday night burger special at my beloved Dutch’s Wine. That there is a Poutine Burger. You read that correctly. Poutine. ON A BURGER. For the uninitiated, Poutine is a Canadian-born treat of french fries covered in cheese curds and gravy. Its crazy good on its own. Insane on a burger. #loveyouforeverDutchs.

A touch more refined but equally amazing was this starter at Salazar. That would be a GORGEOUS piece of seared foie gras over a pistachio blini with radish and granola garnish. I enjoyed this with a small glass of Sauternes and felt super wicked classy.

On a particularly blustery day, I met a friend for lunch at French Crust Cafe. Hot tea and this ” le casserole le creuset” Macaroni and Cheese with medley of mushrooms, leek and celery warmed up my very soul.  IMG_0893Speaking of warming, I enjoyed my first Hot Apple Cider with bourbon on a recent night out at Igby’s. When the weather turns colder, my drinks turn darker. Bourbon for Vodka and Reds for Rosé (but Champagne? Its 365).

This beautiful tier is the offering of high tea at Bonbonnerie. Celebrating a friend’s birthday in charming style; we enjoyed their beautiful tea service which included savories, sandwiches, scones, breads, fruits and a stunning assortment of pastries. The table was set beautifully and the service was perfect. A fantastic option for holiday celebrating. IMG_0912
Thankful indeed! For the first time in several years, I made my way back to Boston for Thanksgiving. It was just as delicious as always. IMG_1009
Finally, I enjoyed an afternoon espresso with a friend while we caught up on news
(aka gossip). I love that Collective Espresso serves this the traditional way; with a small glass of Pellegrino on the side. Their coffees and espresso are excellent.

What delicious things have you been discovering? What are you making for the holidays? Are you in a holiday haze of eggnog? Can you invite me?
I love eggnog.
