Ohhh what a day! It is raining again here in Boston, and boy did I get soaked on the way home. It was another very busy day, so busy in fact, that I had cake for lunch.
Two of my colleagues are celebrating birthdays tomorrow, and my plan for weeks was to get a cake for our department to celebrate. Of course, I was called into two last minute meetings though, which gave me time to go to Finale to buy the cake, go into a meeting, then come back out in time for it being cut.
They were surprised, and the cake was delicious, though maybe a little too delicious. I could only eat about 1/2 of a piece, which is fine with me. It was Finale’s Chocolate Symphony:
Three tiers of Valrhona chocolate mousse (bittersweet, milk, and white) with chocolate cake
Finale is a beautiful desserterie that also serves lunch, and it is very close my office. They also host a variety of different events; I am dying to attend one soon and hope my schedule allows for it!
I don’t think having cake for lunch every once in awhile is such a bad thing, especially considering all of my great finds at our local produce market today.
I have all the fixins for a great smoothie in the am, plus some apricots, which Foodgal wrote a great article about the other day. They have been so yummy and sweet but apparently will have a very short season.
I was hoping to add my Amazing Grass to my smoothie as it was supposed to arrive today, but the UPS man didn’t leave it, just a slip on the door. I am hoping to work from home tomorrow, so there will be Amazing Grass soon!
Dinner tonight is either burritos from El Triunfo or tempeh and veggie stir fry. I am secretly hoping for burritos so there is no clean up! I am off to do some sort of workout. Have a great evening everyone, and I will be back tomorrow with a review of the lovely new Stephi’s on Tremont.
