Sunday Funday

The reason I didn't blog yesterday: I had a little too much fun on Sunday.

I spent the beginning part of the weekend with some of my immediate family in New Hampshire. It was a glorious day and a half filled with drinking chilled white wine by the fire, sight-seeing around New Hampshire's beaches, and just spending quality time with the fam dam. When I arrived back in Somerville on Sunday, however, I was in the mood for some comfort food and cold beer - so I called up my cousin, Carolan, and we went to Joe Sent Me.

Carolan had a gift certificate to Joe Sent Me, so we decided to get a few appetizers to share - and spend the rest of the money on drinks. Over the course of the afternoon, I had several BBC Steel Rail Extra Pale Ales as well as a Whale's Tale Pale Ale

BBC Steel Rail #2...or #3?

To eat, we had Bazooka Joe's Fried Pickles with ranch dressing on the side ($7.95)...

...As well as an order of Joey Bag O'Donuts Basket O'Fries - Freshly Cut Regular ($3.95) (you also have the choice of Cajun or Sweet Potato fries).

I've met very few fried pickles I haven't liked, and Joe Sent Me's version is one of the many I've enjoyed. The pickles were delightfully zesty and slightly spicy, and the cool ranch dressing helped to tame the vinegar from the pickles. The fries were also a notch above most bar's French fries - they were wonderfully crispy on the outside, and well salted. 

Overall, it was quite a fun weekend. I was sad to see it end!

What are you looking forward to this week? Z and I are going to a beer dinner at 5 Napkin Burger tonight - I'm excited for that!

  1. Michelle - I hope you enjoy your visit to 5 Napkin. I love the place but was puzzled by their low scores on Yelp and Urbanspoon. But then again, its really not targeted at the Allston crowd at all.

  2. I'm looking forward to getting some runs in before or after work this week!

  3. That sounds like a fun Sunday indeed! I am exhausted lately, so I am just looking forward to going to bed tonight!

  4. Mmm fried pickles! Sounds like a great weekend!
