Well…it was a good run…. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.
…oh! Nooononono, it’s not the blog – but…I set my fire alarm off tonight. haha
If you follow me on Twitter (which you should!) you’d have seen this already – but I had not set my fire alarm off since moving in here…a 10 month run!! Ahh, well, as I said before all good things must come to an end. haha Sure – my fire alarm has gone off before – but only because it was haunted (or dust…I’ll go with haunted 😉 ) not because of any smoke in the air caused by moi.
What caused the alarm to go off? Well…you shall have to wait and see. 🙂
Let’s start with the morning. I was up early this morning – 5:56 am to be precise…without an alarm (ironic, now). I made myself my usual cup of coffee and camped out in front of the computer to continue work on a project that was due today. However, I may have checked blogs, e-mail, Facebook and Twitter before really settling into my project…
I worked throughout the morning, and then got myself together to go out to lunch with a friend who I hadn’t seen in forever!! We ended up at Stephanie’s on Newbury Street (a perfect day for a meal with a “view). For those of you not familiar with Boston – but familiar with celebrity gossip – I can equate Stephanie’s to one other restaurant – The Ivy in LA. It’s a see and be seen type of place – with an outdoor patio that is always filled. Stephanie’s was good though – albeit a little expensive.
Unfortunately, I forgot my camera – I know! It’s not far from where I live, but there just wasn’t time to run back to get it. I got the Lump Crab BLT – which came with lump crab meat (it was delicious and sweet) in a tarragon mayo-type sauce, delicious bacon, avocado, lettuce and tomato all on toasted whole wheat bread which was so good. It also came with a pickle and potato chips..which I devoured. No shame.
It was a beautiful day and it was great catching up with my friend who I had not seen since the end of March – craziness!
I munched my way throughout the rest of the day and chatted with my best on good ole FB.
Now…dinner…and here is where the alarm comes into play. Silly olive oil and your smoke point! haha I was making lemon and garlic kale and the oil was too hot and set off the alarm – silliness! It wasn’t even hot enough to burn the garlic so I think my alarm is just sensitive. My alarm-free reign ended over a little olive oil. *sigh* Lame. I was hoping that it’d be an epic event. haha Either way the meal was delicious – I paired it with Jenna‘s baked beans – cold. They are really good cold.
I hope you all are wonderful and enjoying your week!! It’s supposed to get crummy – in the weather department- here over the next few days so I was happy to be able to be out and about and enjoy today.
