ENORMOUS LEMON POPPY SEED MUFFIN


Intense. Unpredictable. Extraordinary.

Nothing like an over-reactive strawberry ice cream soda and gigantic muffin to nurse the delirium of working till 4am.

These photos were taken at Cabot's Ice Cream & Restaurant, the prime location for a power lunch in West Newton, where I worked until two Fridays ago as a Design Strategist for Design Continuum. I figured I should record this experience for the team (we're really into memories and everlasting friendships and such).

TAKE TWO PARTS STRAWBERRY SODA


AND ONE PART STRAWBERRY SOFT SERVE


ADD SOFT SERVE TO SODA WITH SPOON
pref. in center of table, far away from anything you might care about


OBSERVE UNSTOPPABLE FROTHING ACTION WITH AWE


I have finally decided to move onwards and westwards. Or more, I have finally found the courage to uproot myself from my safe and happy home of 25 years, eliminate 70% of my possessions, and drive 3500 miles across mountains and desert, all because I think I have found the right opportunity for a new adventure and career.

Over the next two weeks, my best friend and I will be driving from Boston to Berkeley, CA. At the end of the month, I will begin my new job in Napa Valley at a wine company. I am excited. I will keep you updated as much as I can.

*laugh* I don't think I've ever heard Cabots refered to as a location for a 'power lunch'. That said...I love going there myself and if I worked in the 'burbs I'd so go there for lunch :D

Working for a wine company in Napa sounds like pretty exciting stuff.

Looking forward to future posts.

YESSSSSSSSSss, the new post we've all been waiting for!

It's amazing that that ice cream drink explosion stayed in your glass, it must have known it was being photographed.

There will be no shortage of new culinary experiences out in Napa and I think all of us (All hundred thousand of your readers) anticipates inspiring updates.

That's it, I'm putting "Bride me with a muffin" as my homepage, that way I'll be up to the minute on your every adventure.

Safe travels.
