After my grandfather’s funeral and a large buffet dinner with the family, my mom and I left with my aunts (my mom’s sisters) to head to Southhampton, MA (which is on the western side of MA) while my dad stayed with his family for another night. The next day my cousins took me out for a little afternoon joyride and took me to see cows (!!) and get ice cream. YES.

ss lobster ltd / fitchburg, ma
July 9th, 2014Mary, Massachusetts, Road TripsMary Desjean 26 Comments

One place that I love, love, love in Fitchburg, MA is this seafood place called SS Lobster Ltd. My grandparents would take me here when I visited from Boston. Memere (my grandmother) would always get the fried scallops while I usually wanted the fried clams. This place has good memories for me and my Mom wanted us to go here for dinner on a first night in Massachusetts. Like my Dad and I were going to say no to this …

a visit to the jfk library – boston, ma

Warning: this is a non-food post! Just a travel post!

I went to college at Boston University and spent four years living in Boston. In all that time though I never managed to make it to the John F. Kennedy library! We had a little time to kill that morning before we could check into our hotel later (to sleep) and I suggested we go check out the JFK library. The library is located on the UMass Boston campus near the harbor.

Earlier this month I traveled to Massachusetts for a quick trip with my parents to attend my grandfather’s funeral. While it was a somber occasion and reason, it was nice to be able to get back East for a quick trip, to see my family, and to celebrate my grandfather’s life. 
We took an overnight red eye flight and got into Boston around 6:30AM. Logan International hadn’t quite fully awakened by the time we got off the plane, but the first …

More Florida posts!@#!! And this time… to Orlando! You know what that means, don’t you? I went to Harry Potter Land Universal Studios!

Well, we ALMOST didn’t make it. The day that we left it rained… and rained… and rained a lot in the span of a couple of hours! Above is a photo of the street totally flooded. Chris had to drive all the way to the left to avoid the quickly rising water…

You can see here a large truck …

I am away from California at the moment, in tree laden Massachusetts spending a little time with family. I didn’t have time for a proper post for today but here’s a few snaps and highlights from my trip.

Delicious corned beef hash in a tiny diner in South Boston.

Dunkin’ Donuts! Obviously.

Mmm, fried clams (and fried scallops).

We had creamy ice cream and I pet some cows. And tried asparagus ice cream! Only sampled, it was kind of stringy…

And lobster! It’s been a …

el rey de las fritas / little havana – miami, fl
June 4th, 2014Florida, Mary, Road TripsMary Desjean 4 Comments

I only have a few Florida related posts left, so let me get to another one before I forget all about what Florida was like!
After cruising around Key West in the humid warm weather, we left the Keys and traveled up to Miami. I really wanted to have lunch in Miami and picked a place in Little Havana called El Rey de las Fritas.

I read about fritas on Yelp and after doing a Google search and they sounded interesting enough. …

key lime desserts hunting in key west, fl
May 26th, 2014Florida, Mary, Road TripsMary Desjean 12 Comments

Jake and I had a goal to try a bunch of different Key Lime desserts while we were in Florida (and Key West). We didn’t quite get to try as many as we wanted to but we still got a variety. Desserts are listed in the order that we ate them.

1) Yoder’s Key Lime Pie
Yoder’s Amish Village / Sarasota, FL / $4.50
I already talked about this over here on this post. Fluffy, light, creamy, almost like “Key Lime lite” but …
