Fly-By June.

Well, June sure did fly by! Work is a little crazy right now, which leaves little time for blogging. Here's what kept me busy otherwise. 

Cameron's parents bid on a private chef dinner at a private auction a couple of months ago and were kind enough to invite Cameron and I, as well as my parents, over to enjoy the experience and dinner! Chef Demal Mattson did such a great job showing us that a delicious meal does not have to be difficult.

The menu included a shortcut version of mini tomato pies (mini fillo shells, pimento cheese, and half of a grape tomato..that's it!), truffle mushroom tarts, summer melon salad, chateaubriand with a red wine reduction, roasted asparagus and potatoes, and chocolate caramel panna cotta. One of the best meals of my life! 

Hosted supper club at Cameron's parent's house on the river. Lots of fun!!

Celebrated June birthdays in my family - Sister's boyfriend, Sister, Husband, Mom, Grandad

Joined a group of bloggers at The Americano for cocktails and dinner. I ordered the Mexican Mule and the Yellowfin Tuna Tower. Both very tasty!

Celebrated Cameron's 31st birthday with burgers, bourbon, and cigars. 

Boss man treated the office to happy hour at Taco Boy. It's always fun to hang out with your co-workers outside of the office! 

Ended a long work day by checking out the Westbrook Brewery.

Finally went to 167 Raw to try out their lobster roll. Now I definitely see what all the talk is all about. It is AMAZING and I will definitely be back. (As a reference, this is a split portion.) And just a heads up, this puppy will run you $24. 

Still enjoying the boxed meal concepts! We have been going back and forth between Hello Fresh and Home Chef lately. To read a summary of the four different companies we tried, as well as get a discount on your first order, you can view my post here

On to July!

  1. You guys have been taking part in some super fun get togethers and delicious food!! Love that you got together with a group of bloggers, and that Cameron's parents were so nice to invite you guys to their private chef meal!
    I hope time slows down a bit--I'm in disbelief that it's already after July 4th!

  2. you look SO cute in the pic of you & cameron on the couch. i wish i had tried that lobster roll when i was down. $24!? holy geez, that's really high...even for here. but it looks good!

  3. Looks like a month full of delicious food!

  4. Looks like you had a great June!! All of your fun eats look delish!

  5. Wow that's quite a few birthdays in June! Our big birthday month is May in our family, in fact my mom's and mine are a day apart.

  6. I just told my husband that we need to try 167 Raw!! I saw your IG photo and have been craving a good lobster roll - definitely missing Rhode Island there!! Also, seriously, how is it already June?? If you ever want to get together for drinks or something, let me know :)

  7. The summer really is flying by, I blinked ( and haven't blogged much) and all of a sudden it is the middle of July. Looks like you have been enjoying yourself. So jealous about the private chef dinner. I would LOVE to do that.

  8. All seem to be good reasons not to be blogging. Glad the month was so fun for you.
