I’m fortunate to work in a neighborhood with plenty of lunch options! The other day, we had a work lunch at The Merchant – the type of venue that has suits bustling in and out during lunch hours. It’s great for casual office meetings, with it’s hardwood floors, polished tables, and tall, open patio windows.
I ordered the classic Fish and Chips, with beer-battered cod, shoestring fries and tartar sauce. Usually I get part-way through fish & chips, and get tired of all the fried-ness. This dish was so delicious, though, I polished the plate! The fish was fried to absolute perfection – not too thick & greasy, yet not falling apart either. It was a light, flaky portion.
Croque Madame, with smoked ham, gruyere, bechemel, and of course a giant fried egg!
After work, I met up with some friends for a fun-filled Paint Nite at the Hard Rock Cafe! Our goal was to paint the Boston Skyline at sunset.
Blending the sky.
My finished product! I’m so proud!
Paint Nite was way too fun – we got a Groupon for it, which made it so affordable and worth it!
