Kale, Drinks, and Dinner

A typical Friday. Summer Fridays leave me toting around bags of kale, herbs, and lettuce wherever I go, thanks to the gorgeousness of the Copley Farmer’s Market. It’s a really awesome look that goes great with most outfits ;) Carrying a large bag of greens is also a great conversation starter. Do you know that none of the ladies that I was out with has had a green monster smoothie?! I think I need to convert them!

Work was uneventful, and with my computer virus disaster from earlier in the week, I was glad. I snuck out for lunch and spent the time wandering the farmer’s market, wishing I could work there instead. How fun would that be for the summer?!

This week I checked out the baked goods at the Tatte Bakery booth. Everything looked full of buttery deliciousness.

I still need to get myself to the actual Tatte Bakery in Brookline.

I stopped to smell many, many flowers.

My heart was once again captured by the booth from Sofra and Siena Farms.

Fun rainbow beets and garlic scapes caught my eye. I love watching each week to see what new veggie or herb is growing in New England.

I left with several huge bunches of purple and green kale for salads along with some dill for a pasta dish I am making this weekend. It’s an old favorite, and I am really excited to share.

My after work fun began at Splash where I went to attend the Boston Sports Woman event. Before the event, I wandered around a little. Splash is definitely an interesting space with a Miami-like roof deck. If I wasn’t there for specific event, I would say maybe it’s not my scene.

The inside is spacious and modern. Our group had its own room and bartender.

There were some delicious bites available including this lobster salad in phyllo pastry shells.I had many of these!

I didn’t sample this prosciutto, but I thought it made a nice photo!

I DID have some of these tuna tartare and seaweed cups. I love eating seaweed!

I paired it all with a Roederer Estates Brut. A little bubbly is the perfect way to kick off a weekend! This Brut had a nice crisp pear flavor with a bit of nuttiness, almond maybe? It is from the Anderson Valley where I wish I was right now ;)

I had a great time meeting up with Kathy from Boston Sports Woman and the other ladies in attendance at the event. I think that Boston Sports Woman is going to do some really fun things for women writers in Boston, and I love that they also pair up with charities for women and girls like Glamour Gone Good.

Dinner at Les Zygomates post to follow. . . I think this recap of Friday afternoon is long enough!
