Oh, here we go again.
This time I’m in Boston for a private Operation Beautiful event at a biotech company. So much traveling lately. But I’m VERY excited to be here because I get to stay with my friend Tina instead of being stuck in a lonesome hotel room.
Crazily enough – Tina, Mal, and Murphy the Pug live in a small town in South Shore, the tiny town that DadHTP grew up in! The world is so small.
I was very excited to meet Mr. Murphy. Cutest pug ever. And so smart. Too smart for his momma’s good!
After an early wake-up call, Panda Puffs for breakfast, and a bumpy flight, I arrived in Boston and grabbed Tina for lunch at Whole Foods.
I went so nuts at the hot bar that this salad cost me $12.96. Too many heavy items.
Mashed potatoes, eggs, potato salad, broccoli, plantains, brown rice edamame salad, spinach, asparagus, and tons of raw vegs.
And ginger ale for a drink. My stomach was all sorts of queasy earlier. Must’ve been that crazy mid-flight turbulence (truly, I nearly flew out of my seat!)…
My ‘thank you’ present for Tina and Mal was this amazing turtle apple.
Green apple covered in caramel, chocolate, and nuts.
We made an valiant effort to keep it neat and tidy, but then we just started to scrap off the caramel and toss the apple. Ah, well.
Off to squeeze in a run and do my presentation. Then, we have GRAND PLANS for tonight that involve Thai food, a toasty fire, and reruns of Ellen. Sounds pretty ideal to me!
