Chubs and Blubs

It is no secret that I can afford to drop a few pounds. When the seams in my pants begin to stretch beyond what the physical properties of the fabric and thread allow and walking up a flight of stairs results in a heart pounding air gasping endeavor that usually is the signal to stop ordering from Pizza Hut and stop making those late night runs to the grocery store for Ben & Jerry’s. When work and life bring stress, some...

Testing the new Mexican joint

Last week the much anticipated (at least by Mario and me) Mexican restaurant opened in Lynn. You may ask why would we be awaiting a Mexican restaurant in our town when we already have 100 of them already. In actuality, we don’t really have many sit-down full-service Mexican restaurants in Lynn. We have many takeout style places and many of them while serving typical Mexican food are an amalgam of ethnic backgrounds and not...

For the love of ice cream!

Maybe soon one of my posts will NOT be about food but don’t hold your breath. I wholeheartedly admit that I spend an inordinate amount of time focused on food.

I had my very own chef’s hat and apron I’d wear around the kitchen and I’d profess how I would grow up one day to be a chef. I was proud my magnet of a chef...

It is a challenge to figure out where to begin so I figured I would start with the most recent experience. I should start with what made this past...

Soosh

It was a long cold week. Work, car tax bills, a sick dog and another bout with snow left Mario and I grouchy. It seemed that the only logical thing to do was to go out to dinner and relax forgetting about it all and welcoming in a well deserved weekend. I would have been more than happy to dive into a big bowl of pasta and bread or a greasy cheeseburger but in an effort to eat healthier we opted for one of our favorite meals, sushi!...

Early Spring

Yesterday was a tease, a true tease for us winter weary northerners. With temperatures reaching close to 60 degrees Mother Nature smiled upon us and granted us one day of reprieve from what has been a grueling winter. Even through Mario had to work I was not about to waste the day indoors watching another episode of Little House of the Prairie (a future post on this) so I grabbed my sun glasses, donned my spring jacket and headed into...
