I have officially procrastinated from blogging for multiple hours going sink shopping and categorizing my wedding guest list (I seriously do not know why I did not just elope) in hopes that someone else would be the first to post about our blogger lunch but I don't think it's going to happen so here it goes (just realized now that I am done writing that Meg has now beat me to posting haha). I apologize in advance that I am probably going to totally make up some of the menu items. I'm not going to even pretend this is a legitimate restaurant review because I was paying almost no attention to anything around me today. It's a bit scary meeting 5 new friends so I had to focus :)
Anyway, Meghan, one of my favorite bloggers organized a Boston Blogger Meet Up for us at Myers and Chang in the South End. She is pretty much a regular there and none of us had ever been so she was our expert. The other girls there were: Kirsten from Tales from Two Cities, Gina from Simply Life, Meghan (obviously since she organized) from Travel Eat Love, Caroline from Caroline Dines and Meg who guest posts on her sister's blog Blue Plate Special. It was so much fun to put faces and personalities to names.
I have been wanting to try Myers and Chang, and I was really impressed by the atmosphere of the place. It was casual, but it had that vibe like..."yes we are a high quality food establishment" haha. On Saturday and Sunday (and maybe other days) they do dim sum at lunch time. I've heard great things about dim sum but never actually tried it myself so I was in for a treat. Meghan told us to just order a bunch and we all agreed to share. I don't think I got pictures of everything but here is a taste of all the deliciousness we ate...
Thai Ginger Chicken with Rice Vermicelli
Sweet Potato Fritters with Sriracha Aioli (by far my favorite thing...yum)
Lemony Shrimp Dumplings
5 Spice Grilled Tofu
Wok Roasted Shitake Omelette (I am just guessing looking at the menu, I totally forget what this is...)
At the end they give you cookies...more yum.
Overall, it was really fun to meet new people and try a new place. It's always fun to picture people one way and then meet them and have it be completely different. It's also fun/weird (in a good way) that we all have this crazy blog world and we read all these blogs and discuss people who write them as though they are all our friends haha...At least we are not discussing celebrity gossip right? Anyway, the point is I really enjoyed meeting these girls and I'm looking forward to future meet ups!
Before I get organized for the week and go to bed I wanted to say two more things I want to do in the month of November (besides my biking and yoga goals). I want to make a thankful list as often as I can AND I want to get better at saying no to social obligations. Yesterday was such a great day and I did NOTHING. It should not take Eric working and both of us being sick for us to just do nothing together. So...from now on I am going to say NO more often. So if I say NO to you, don't be surprised...just kidding, maybe.
Today I am Thankful For:
*trick or treaters
*new blue fleece sheets
*relaxing time with Eric (that happened yesterday not today...but who's counting?)
