Daiquiris? Daiquiris.

Even though I work at a brewery, I love a good cocktail. I find them to be an incredibly creative outlet – easy to make, and you can change up the flavors every time. One of my friends got me a shaker top that fits on a mason jar (get one at The Boston Shaker), and it changed my cocktail game. Actually, it made it exist in the first place, because it’s really hard to make a cocktail without a shaker.

Zucchini Fettuccine Alfredo

Summer = zucchini. There’s nothing better than fresh zucchini. Every year I buy a few plants from a local farm and grow as much zucchini as I can. This year has been my highest yield ever – something like 6 zucchini to date, which is actually rather pitiful. The bee population has dropped off dramatically in recent years, and it’s seriously affecting my zucchini plants. I end up self pollinating them (yup, it’s a thing), and if I forget to do it I end up with a ton of dead zucchini on the vine.

Cold Brewed Coffee

Of course post #1 is all about coffee. Because let’s be real, I wouldn’t be here without it. I’d still be in bed, staring at the ceiling, willing myself to get up. Those days when I know there is no coffee in the house are the worst. Especially on a workday – it means I have to wait *that* much longer before I can have a cup. There aren’t any decent coffee shops on my way to work. If it’s a non-workday I can hop over to Cambridge no problem. Luckily, I plan ahead. Most of the time…..Some of the time…..Occasionally. Honestly, cold brew has made my life so much easier – way less work, and I can take care of it at night, rather than in the morning when I’m bleary eyed and half cognizant.
