Yesterday was Marco's birthday (Happy Birthday Marco!) so after a wonderfully long workout at the gym, Mike and I went over to Marco's place to hang out last night. I stayed up much later than usual and ate an obscene number of chocolate covered dried cherries. This morning I woke up feeling the sugar hangover from those cherries!
There's a new butcher shop in Cambridge called Savenor's Market, and I went there today for the first time. The butcher guys were extremely nice. I needed a standing rib roast for dinner tomorrow night, and the only ones they had at the moment were boneless. They felt so bad about not having exactly what I wanted that they gave me the boneless one for the same per pound price as the one with bones! Not a bad deal at all. Well I shouldn't say that really -- it was the most expensive piece of meat I have ever purchased in my life -- by a long shot! Somehow it was also way more meat than I intended to buy... but that's a different story... I think I will be eating slices of rib roast all week! One of the butchers asked me if I was trying to impress my husband with my rib roast. That made me laugh. I told him I didn't have one to impress, and that the rib roast was just for friends. He seemed skeptical.
Before my butcher shop adventure this morning I finally got the pedicure I have been trying to find time for all month! It was so wonderful!
