77 with a summer drink

Cooking Ramblings

It felt like summer today – Boston reached 77!!!

Yet, I still wore my pea coat over a flannel shirt this afternoon because I’m thawing out. When I was at the park, I actually overheard a girl talking about me to another, saying “I always check the weather in the morning…I feel so sorry for the people who have on wool sweaters and coats today.” Hey, I check the weather every morning too, but Boston is unpredictable and I was cozy in my coat, thank you.

Anywho, the weather was amazing and it allowed me to slow down a bit and appreciate being outside instead of running to and from my T stop like I usually do. Weather affects the pace of the day soo much.

In celebration of life, I poured myself a teeny tiny whiskey sour made with TJ’s sparking lemonade and a hint of lime. Perfect.

Dinner was quesadillas made with leftover pineapple pork from Sunday.


The pork was fabulous in a cheesy tortilla.

This week is flying by and, for once, I actually want it to slow down. When the weather is warm in Boston, it’s such an amazing city.


I hope you guys are having a great week filled with good weather, wherever you may be.

    I always check the weather in the mornings too but I always like to layer. 🙂
    Weather is sunny/cloudy but in the mid 60’s here in Northern CA. I wish it would heat up to 77, that would be so nice.
    This week is totally flying by!

    I sat outside on the Boston harbor today with some vino, it was lovely. SUCH a better city in the warmer weather 🙂
