Cooking is the pits when you’re by yourself.  Normally, I LOVE to experiment with food (or have Marc experiment with food….), but when Marc was gone, I wasn’t really interested in doing much of anything for dinner, unless it involved baking a Mama Celeste Pizza.  This is not an exaggeration.  Last week, I went to […]


Okay, we just got back from Gargoyles.  It was a pretty good time….we did have some weird service, including a server who took our order and then left for the night and a mix-up with Marc’s appetizer.  But otherwise, the ambiance was nice and the food was generally pretty solid.  Now onto the battle….

Ahhhhh, the three day weekend.  We have done so much driving this weekend.  We were in Providence Friday, Braintree (not too far) on Saturday, and Sunday, we hauled up to Maine.  Today, we stayed put, did some chores, made some soup, and caught up on our TiVo full of movies. We went to Portland yesterday, […]
