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!
