Yesterday was in the 80’s, so Matt and I decided to use a restaurant.com gift certificate for an upscale Irish bar with a fun patio to soak up one last summery night. It seems everyone else had the same idea, because on our walk, there were so many people out enjoying the warm weather.
Cuffs is located in the Back Bay hotel and has a huge selection of appetizers and reasonably priced entrees. Matt and I both started with a Sam Adams Octoberfest, a local staple here in Beantown. It wasn’t quite as good as I remember from last year, but enjoyable nonetheless. Must be all those sweet pumpkin beers I’ve been drinkin’…
If you’ve never used restaurant.com, you should def. check it out. We had to spend $35 to get $25 off. Normally, this would be nooo problem, but the prices were so great at Cuffs, that we had to order four different things to get to $35! Spending money is sooo fun.
We didn’t want the night to end, but we were too tired for more drinks, so we settled for a little ice cream from the grocery store. It’s been a loooong time since I’ve picked out a gallon of ice cream and can I just say that I’m slightly disgusted by some of the ingredients in ice cream these days. I was hoping to find something without soy in it (I’m finding I’m sensitive to soy products) and without transfats, and we must have spent a good 15 minutes trying to find a non-vanilla flavor that met these criteria. We ended up with a Turkey Hill Butter Pecan, which was fab-lu-lous with cinnamon and letter cookies from Trader Joe’s!! I inhaled this ice cream and then fell asleep during a movie promptly at my week-night bedtime of 10:45. Sad, but what can I do? I guess Friday night movies are a bad idea…
Saturday has been wonderful thus far. I went to another cardiosculpt class today, and although I still couldn’t look in the mirror, I really enjoyed it! The sculpting is the best part because we do exercises that I would never do on my own (aka leg lifts and plie squats).
I roasted more carrots for lunch because I had such a positive experience with cooked carrots with last week’s burnt carrots. I cut them into different shapes in an attempt to figure out which shape I like the best. I think the fat discs won….
