how do couples handle dinner?

organic joint effort. on occasion, i make things ahead on the weekends and, he sets the table and gets it started as he is home earlier. if there's nothing on deck, he'll get dinner together, and i'll clean. sometimes i have some things in mind and i'll make it when i get home. whomever doesn't cook is the cleaner. sometimes we do everything together.

i know i've said this a million times, but as a person who never carries cash, it cannot be emphasized enough.....belle isle is cash only.

Nanina's in Fields Corner [moved from Boston]

i had a salad (string beans and egg!) last night too! my husband swooned. I live right in the neighborhood. they also sell minestrone, chicken escarole soup, and 1/2 pans of focaccia in addition to the dressing and meat sauce.

How do you deal with the compulsive need for everyone to like your food?

very little makes me happier than people enjoying my cooking and baking. so i get you in that regard. but excluding something from my repertoire because one person didn't rave.....not so much. although i am disappointed.

i try to know my audience, their palates, and their preferences. i do like to make people happy thru my cooking. which makes me happy. i'm a pleaser in general.....

VitaMix - Liquid diet ideas (smoothies, juices, protein powders, etc.)

i've used coconut water. it's 70 cals a cup and pretty much is indistinguishable from water in a smoothie.

Roche Bros. Downtown Crossing?

that takeout prepared food/salad bar section is a little cramped and chaotic, though. would you agree?

Roche Bros. Downtown Crossing?

less than zero, actually. you can't even get dropped off curbside. no traffic on that section of winter/summer street.

Roche Bros. Downtown Crossing?

i will walk by in a few, but my bet is zero. or close to it.

i've seen a lot of talk about "rotating your greens." may have to look into it.

VitaMix Blender, is it worth it?

slightly interesting turn of events. had my first check-up since my vmix purchase in october. i've been drinking a green smoothie daily since then. oddly enough, my iron levels are now too high. had a fasting blood test on tuesday. i'm guessing pounds of spinach (literally) a week probably has something to do with it.
