It's been a hot hot week hasn't it?
Those of you in the East Coast (and probably most parts of the nation) can commiserate with me. I had the fun job of walking home the other day (about 1 mile) carrying a load of empty boxes.
Don't worry - I'm not moving that far. I'm moving just a couple miles down the road. I'll still be in Cambridge, so the nature of the content of this blog won't really change at all.
A few things I look forward to in the new place:
1. A window in the kitchen! - finally, my cooking shots will look so much better with the benefit of natural sunlight!
2. A bigger (but still small by suburban standards) urban kitchen
3. A tiny urban garden - maybe I can plant some herbs now!
It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks as I've been packing like crazy (sorry if the blog seems to have slowed down a bit). Bryan and I have also been shopping for all sorts of furniture. Honestly, when we first got married, we set a pretty low budget for furniture. When the money ran out, we just stopped buying furniture, even if we didn't have everything yet. This is why we've gone 10 years without even a headboard on our bed. Yah . . so we have a lot of catching up to do!
Please meet my sister, Patricia, the inspiration behind my next series of posts.
My sister's got a TON going on right now! Not only did she complete her Ph.D. this past year, she's also expecting her first baby really soon (hello diapers and cribs!). In a normal year I only see my parents a few times a year (usually during the holidays). This year, I'll be blessed to see my parents a lot more. First, they came to attend my sister's graduation earlier this summer. Later, when my sister has her baby, my mom will come again!
My next food series will feature the various meals we enjoyed throughout Boston with my family while they were here for Patricia's graduation. Here's a sneak peek at the upcoming posts! Can you guess any of the places?
They say the best Vietnamese food in Boston is in Dorchester. I finally had a chance to try one of these places with my family when they came for Patricia's graduation. It was the first time we experienced pho with actual raw beef (served table side) that you just dip into the soup!
We enjoyed a fun barbeque at Patricia's backyard where we tasted the ever-so-delicious Copper River Salmon on the grill.
We had surprisingly solid Cantonese food (this place is one of those "best kept hidden secrets places") at a Chinese restaurant inside of a Days Inn right outside of Boston!
My sister's favorite banh mi shop is also in Dorchester (right on Dorchester Ave). At her baby shower, every single guest got to enjoy one of these flavorful sandwiches. YUM . . .
Here's to you sis! Can't wait to meet the little one!
