Woot-woot!! What a weekend friends!
The weather in Beantown this weekend was absolutely fabulous. Everyone here has Spring fever and the town was hoppin’ this weekend. (Myself and my lady friends included!)
A month or so ago, my first big night back on the town post-surgery was a dinner with 4 girlfriends over at Met Bar on Newbury St. I had been previously for a drink & dessert but not dinner. We were seated in the downstairs bar area, and man, everyone in the bar wanted to be at our table. I have the funniest friends ever.
So much so that we’ve been jonesin’ to go back for another fantastic lady date night. This weekend we went again, check out the full review here.
Saturday I went to Sonsie, another Boston stand-by. See the review of that meal here.
I also decided that I needed to take a turn in the kitchen since I hadn’t touched it very much in nearly a week! Poor lil’ guy was getting lonely. I somehow (though not surprisingly) spent a good chunk of change at Whole Foods Sunday in preparation to cook the day away. I then somehow, (though again, not surprisingly) got talked into a mini-Sunday Funday. So much for that plan.
Amidst the randomness of the day and due to a logisitcal error on my part (Whole Foods rearranged a bunch of things so I came home missing key ingredients) my intended tasty dinner ended up being sub-par. My sweet potato baked fries came out soggy, I had nothing to dip them in, and I didn’t have the proper accoutrements to make buffalo sauce for my buffalo turkey & blue cheese burgers. Blurg. So round one, I had a dry & boring turkey burger.
However, I tried again, made another trip to the store and, I achieved success.
Step 1, make turkey burgers, forgetting breadcrumbs, these were very sticky.
Step 2- make buffalo sauce
Step 3- Dip cooked turkey burger into buffalo sauce, don’t be shy
Step 4, build your burger- I decided to try my hand at bootleg blue cheese dressing, crumbled fresh blue cheese & sour cream
Finally, be sure to have plenty of napkins, as well as extra sauce & dressing on hand.
