Mother's Day Brunch

I spent the better part of 8 hours cooking for Mother's Day. But I think it turned out pretty good.

I made an Asparagus Tart, Sweet Pea Flan with Carrot Vinaigrette. Potatoes Pave, French Breakfast Radishes with lemon zest and assorted berries.

Hello Estrip

I miss the whole format of blogging. I'm just going to put it out there... Boston Sucks! It's expensive like NY but much of what makes NY special is missing here. I miss Buffalo, didn't make a ton of close friends while I was there but I had fun. It's affordable for normal people. There are much worse places to live... Yes I've been drinking!

Free Energy

I noticed this electric car charging station today at the new Whole Foods in Wellesley. It seems crazy to me that they have it there free of charge for anyone with an electric car to use. Could you imagine a gas pump at a grocery store giving away gas to anyone who parked there?

I really wonder if electric cars will ever take off. It seems unlikely to me. Who wants to deal with charging their car all the time? I forget to charge my phone constantly. It also doesn't seem anymore environmentally friendly than gas powered vehicles to me considering almost 70% of the electricity in the US comes from either burning coal or natural gas. I wonder when the Fuel Cell cars will come to market?

I will be sad when the tomatoes are gone

We went to the Copley Square farmer's market today after work. There is an amazing stand that's part Sienna Farms and part Sofra, which is an amazing middle eastern bakery in Cambridge. They have some of the most amazing produce; french breakfast radishes, fat heavy eggplants, skinny curvy eggplants, potatoes and chard of all different colors, beautiful pepper and leaks, and chicken of the woods mushrooms which I have seen in the wild but never for sale. I was blown away with the selection. They also had some amazing heirloom tomatoes. It looks like it's getting toward the end of the tomato season. Time to get your fill now!

So far this year we have made two tomato pies, grouper with a tomato vinaigrette, and countless salads and pastas and sanwiches. But tonight was our first caprese of the year. It's cliche and all, but I don't really care. It's really delicious when the tomatoes are at their prime.

Fresh Start

It would be tough to know this since I haven't posted much about it here. But my family and I moved to Boston yesterday/today. Not only did we want to be closer to my wife's family, but I needed some fresh career opportunities as well. As much as I enjoyed my 4 years in Buffalo I always knew that it wouldn't be where I settled. As of right now I can't say that Boston will be either, but for the first time in my life I feel like I'm settled. I'm excited to explore this city and raise our daughter here. I'm happy that she will grow up near her grandparents like I did.

I'm pretty excited to start my new job next week. I will be working at a very large research hospital that I probably shouldn't name but I will say that its right next to Harvard Medical School(for those that are familiar with the area). I hope my foot in the door there will lead to bigger and better things.

I will miss many things about Buffalo. My life's biggest milestones happened there. Pretty strange considering I didn't live there between the ages of 3 months and 28 years. I met some great people that I will miss, and am happy that I took the most important ones with me.
