I’m a pretty good houseguest. Just ask any friend that I stay with. I take short showers. I keep my stuff to a little area where my bag is. I don’t require any special foods or beverages and bring my own snacks. I love pets and most babies.
I’m also a great person to invite over for a meal. I’m easily amused. I love almost all types of foods. I am easily impressed by all cooking attempts. When my friend, Christie, sends out a brunch invite I jump to say “YES, Please!”
On Sunday I showed up ready to drink some booze and eat some food. I knew it was going to be good when I showed up to a lovely table setting and a mimosa.
Christie is a genius in the kitchen. She makes everything seem so easy!
First Course: Cauliflower & Leek Frittata
Chat it up in between courses!
Drink it up!
Second Course: Mushroom risotto (some had duck confit too!)
Third Course: Macadamia Nut Crusted Sea Bass with Mashed Sweet Potatoes and a green salad.
Dessert Course: Lemon Ricotta Stuffed Strawberries and a Crepe that had the most delicious inside ever. (Obviously I can’t remember what it was except that it was GOOOOOOOD.)
I rolled myself home after this meal and proceeded to nap the rest of the day away. If that doesn’t scream lovely Sunday brunch I don’t know what does?!
BUT WAIT! The fun doesn’t end there…on Monday I busted out my best kicks and boogied over to Cuchi Cuchi for a Martini Monday with the girls!
Cuchi Cuchi is eclectic with a vintage vibe filled with feathers, fishnets and all kinds of fun jewels.
There were drinks…
Lots of small plates of yummy food including marinated mushrooms, fried artichokes, mexican tomato, stuff avocado and thai coconut soup.
I tried to creepily and sneekily take a photo of our servers absolutely fantastic outfit, but my stealth photo skills were just not up to par that night.
Two meals. Two fantastic meals. Great friends. I’m a lucky girl, huh?!
What is your fave restaurant to take a guest when they come to town?
Cuchi Cuchi is a great pick for me. I also love taking people to the North End for some great Italian food at Mother Anna’s. Mmmm….
