First of all, I want to say “Hi!” and send some love to my grandma. She asked me last night for the address to my blog, because she’d tried to find it on her own, but had no luck. I assume she has been here since I saw that someone had entered my exact blog address into Google to find me (It’s all about the Google with the Nana). So, keep it clean, people (I’m talking to YOU, Kasha).
Today’s going to be a bit of weird blogging day (but, Jenny, you say, everyday is a weird blogging day with you! Well, thanks.). Last night I got a little caught up in making jewelry and by the time I looked at the clock it was 12:00 a.m.! Of course, I had to finish up what I was working on because God only knows when I’ll have the patience to wire wrap that intensely again. I have about as much patience as a 3 year- old on a cross country road trip.
Anyway, I digress. Let’s take a look at my eats for the day, starting with lunch, since I…er…didn’t exactly eat breakfast.
Dinner was a bit of an unexpected treat. I had no idea what I was going to do and I was exhausted after a long day, but on my way home, I came across a lovely surprise! I took a meandering route home, which must have been fate- there’s a new store in town and it’s called “Brookline Fine Wine and Gourmet.” Of course, like a good little foodie I had to go in and explore and I wasn’t disappointed! I knew it was going to be good when I stepped in and there was bread from Clear Flour Bakery! This is quite possibly one of the BEST bakeries in the city and there are tons of really upscale restaurants that use their bread.
There was a small but really interesting and varied selection of cheeses (chocolate chevre, anyone?), crackers, tea, chocolates, pasta, olive oil, honey, and various other goods. There were some local and New England products and then there were the imported goods. They were mostly French, Italian and Spanish imports and while some things were a little pricier, it was still completely within reason.
What I REALLY want to talk about is the domestic, and international beer and wine selection- I didn’t have time to really look too hard, but I can’t wait to go back. They had what looked like a nice little craft beer section and a terrific wine selection. Too bad Meghan can’t shop with me- I don’t know where to start. If you’re in the Brookline area, definitely check them out!
I didn’t want to go too crazy, so I ended up with three items (Sadly, no wine. I was too overwhelmed and the pressure got to me.):
I can’t say I’ve ever had brie in a tin can before, but that’s what it was. It was really delicious. Truffle oil has become harder and harder for me to find and I absolutely LOVE it. Dinner was a mish mash:
I treated myself to a couple of other things yesterday, too. Big spender! 😉
I promise I will post my latest projects. I was surprised that so many people have expressed interest, both on and off the blog. There are so many things to show you that I’ll probably do a post tonight dedicated to the “Design” part of the blog.
And now- the age old question: Do you eat the rind when you eat brie or do you just eat the creamy inside? I’m curious because I never eat the rind, but I know several people who do! Enlighten me, please.
