I dressed up as Bob from Bob’s burgers for a halloween party on Friday, and my friends dressed up as the rest of the Belcher family (except we had no Gene unfortunately). I thought the costume would be incomplete if I didn’t bring some tasty and pun-based burgers going along the lines of the burger of the day Bob makes on the show. Instead of going with one of my favorite ones (like the chile relleno you didn’t burger), I decided to make up my own! I went with the Beet St. Louis Burger because I had the Red Sox on my mind.
Also known as Triple B soup! Doing soup Mondays this winter has been great. I really enjoyed coming up with new soup ideas week after week. Since the beginning of 2013, I have been eating pretty healthy, and the weekly soups have been a fun chance to try mixing new veggies in different ways. This is going to be the last soup Monday of the season, but you can be sure it will be back when the weather turns chilly come November.
Sofra in Cambridge has been my go-to lunch spot for about 6 months now. I work nearby and love everything about this place. Most of the time I am in a hurry so I grab one of their stuffed flatbreads to go, but when I have a minute to stop and really enjoy my lunch, I like to go inside and relax with some crick-crack crackers and selections from the Mezze Bar. The only problem is that the first thing I tried from the Mezze Bar was so amazing, that I can’t seem to try any of the other choices! Their beet tzatziki is so appealing to all the senses that my brain refuses to let me order anything else.
I had a craving for this tzatziki on a non-work day, and we all know the last thing you want to do on a day off is to go anywhere near work, so I decided to make some at home. I switched it up a bit, either because I was in the mood for smoother tzatziki, or because I was too lazy to shred the beets and just felt like throwing the whole mess into the blender.
