Here are some photos I have been meaning to share with you from Christmas time 2013! Better late then never right? First off, the new job had a holiday lunch at Davio’s in Boston and it was amazing! The first course was a classic Caesar salad!
Another fun highlight of the holiday season was a party at my future bro/sister-in-law’s place! I actually didn’t take too many photos but there was everything under the sun from ham and macaroni and cheese to meatballs and ziti to chicken wings and spinach dip. But I did get a pic of the dessert spread!
Highlights from Christmas Eve time! The Feast of the Seven Fishes seafood extravaganza included lobster risotto, grilled octopus, fried calamari, baked shrimp, coconut shrimp, peel ‘n eat shrimp, octopus salad, cod, raw clams, and who even knows what else! Tons of food was consumed and plenty of wine.
Then the fiance and I ended the year on a tasty note! On New Year’s Eve we ate at Cafe Florentine in the North End. For her: Pollo al Limone- Roasted chicken breast rolled & stuffed with sausage, prosciutto & fontina cheese, finished in olive oil & lemon juice reduction sauce, served with mashed potatoes and string beans. For him: Filetto di Manzo al’ Balsamico- Grilled beef tenderloin wrapped with bacon, finished with shallots and shitake mushrooms, sautéed in olive oil, aged balsamic glaze and marsala wine, served with asparagus and creamy risotto. I must say, his was better!
And for the midnight toast at home, my sisters sent Shari’s berries chocolate strawberries for an engagement and New Year’s gift, and we had some champagne to go along with it!
