Random Things We Did This Weekend

posted in: Life Updates | 0

So the blog has been undergoing a few design changes that I think y’all will enjoy. Not only does it look cleaner, it’s also much easier to navigate (at least I think so!). I have also decided to start these “Random Things We Did This Weekend” posts every Monday in order to maintain some consistency and shed some light on some neat things we did over the weekend and what’s to come during the week.

Gaslight for Dine Out Boston

Friday night, Selma and I went to Gaslight in the South End for Dine Out Boston (formally known as Restaurant Week). For those unfamiliar with Dine Out Boston, it’s basically where lots of local restaurants partake in offering special prix fixe menu’s for lunch and dinner. While still a little pricey for dinner ($28-$38 per person), it’s a great way to try new place’s without spending a fortune.

Gaslight is an upscale French restaurant with a relaxed setting. It’s also where I took Selma on our first “official” date! And there’s a pretty good story that goes along with that evening but I’ll save that for another time :D. I wanted to take more pictures but we were seated in an area with almost no light so all of my pictures actually turned out completely black. However, the food here is amazing and a good deal during Dine Out Boston. If you’re looking for a romantic night out on the town, I highly recommend giving Gaslight a shot. If you went somewhere else for Dine Out Boston, we are always looking for suggestions for new places to try so leave a comment below!

Blue Apron Delivery

A friend of mine (thanks Lauren!) sent me a free trial for Blue Apron and it finally arrived this weekend! We’ve tried out Plated in the past so we were eager to test out a few other food subscription services. Stay tuned this week for our meal reviews!

Molten Chocolate Cakes For Two

Over the weekend, Selma made these amazing Molten Chocolate Cakes for Two! The recipe and the full blog post will come for this masterpiece soon I promise. But for now, feast your eyes on this ridiculousness. Yes, it tasted as good as it looks. Also, I think I’m finally getting the hang of this whole food photography thing!
