Menu Monday and Weekend Scenes

What a difference a week makes...we had a high of 48 degrees last Monday and today's forecast is calling for a high of 93!  Welcome to New England weather!

It was a fun filled weekend at home, I took the kids into Boston on Friday to the New England Aquarium.  I had grabbed a pass from our local library ahead of time which makes the entry fee quite reasonable!
We hit Legal Seafood across the street from the Aquarium for lunch and then enjoyed the beautiful day in the city!
We walked to the North End and stopped into Mike's Pastry to pick up some dessert to bring home.  There was a line at 2:50 in the afternoon!
We ordered an Oreo cannoli, a chocolate chip, a Limoncello and a chocolate cream...they disappeared quickly that evening!
I was off to spin class Saturday morning and then did some food shopping and cleaning in preparation for a family barbecue the next day.  I had to get a shot of my peonies in bloom!
 Saturday evening we met up with friends before the Red Sox game at Boston Chops.
 It was a beautiful night at Fenway!  The Sox played Detroit and won 11-3!
We hosted our families for an early Father's Day celebration on Sunday afternoon.  Reagan and my Dad share a love of Clemson!
 We had plenty of eats...
 and dessert!
 Of course we had a few gifts too...
So after a busy weekend, it's time to get ready to head to Charleston, South Carolina.  As a result, there's not much cooking this week!

Monday- leftovers
Tuesday- Pea and Pancetta Risotto
Wednesday- Soup & Panini
Thursday- out@Rutledge Cab Company
Friday- out @Indaco
Saturday- take out from Rodney Scott's BBQ
Sunday- out @The Obstinate Daughter

  1. Sounds like a great weekend! We headed up to our house near Clemson. Our son had been in Germany and www hadn't seen him since he returned so we visited with him and got to hear all about his adventures!
    Don't know if you're planning a visit to any of the plantations when you're in charleston, but I work at Middleton Place and if you are planning to visit let me know, I'd live to have you as my guest!

    1. Yes, thank you, that is a very kind offer! Middleton Place is on our list, right now we're aiming for Wednesday 6/21 after we check out of our rental. Would love to coordinate via email preppysue@gmail.com. Thank you again!
