alright, a few yummy achievements today.
1. i took the day off from work. this never happens.
2. we went to village seafood in essex, which was awesome. oysters, lobster roll, fried clams, and an amazingly good clam chowder. not artificially thick, like most, but just very clammy with the right amount of potatoes. ftw.
3. went to new england meat market today. for those unfamiliar: http://www.nemeat.com/. high quality meats are surprisingly cheap. they also have a variety of the nasty bits that is hard to find elsewhere. i'll save the sweetbreads and oxtail attempts for another day, but today we bought two rib eyes for about 1/2 the price that they would be at whole foods. we also went for some prociutto, leeks, cod roe, portuguese fresh cheese, whoppie pies, and danish blue cheese. it was righteous... and fairly inexpensive.
4. i bought 2 ostrich eggs. strathy will appreciate this. goodness.
and right now i'm watching across the universe. this is the worst movie i've ever seen. movie cliche's one after another.
