Mal and I had quite the fun afternoon together. Hooray for summer day dates! 🙂 The nice folks from Abby Park in East Milton Square (the same owners as Novara, which we LOVE) invited us for lunch, so we were more than happy to take them up on their offer!
Back in the day, when Mal and I lived right near East Milton Square, we used to walk to Abby Park for their "Appy Hour," which is half priced appetizers (Monday - Thursday, 3-6pm), which we were glad to see that they still have today. If we lived closer, we would definitely frequent Abby Park. The bar area is so fun!
Before we walked into the restaurant, I asked Mal to snap a photo "for the blog" (#bloghusband). It was super sunny outside, and I forgot my sunglasses, so we just could not get a good photo. The whole situation was funny and ridiculous (blog life is so weird), so I just had to share - and, hey, OOTD! 🙂
Drinks to start - cheers!
My handsome date loved the Mediterranean Plate too and could not stop raving about it!
For my entree, I ordered the Salmon Burger on a gluten-free roll with a delicious toasted sesame miso aioli. Mmm! I definitely made the right decision with this meal - holy yum! The salmon burger was cooked to perfection and the flavors were spot on!
Mal ordered the Steak Frites and kindly shared his Truffle Fries with me! 🙂
After lunch, we took an adventure to Trillium Brewing Company - my first time! We're visiting friends on the Cape tomorrow, so Mal wanted to stock up.
We ended up running into some CrossFit friends at the brewery, so we stayed and had a drink with them. I'm not a huge beer drinker nowadays, but the PM Dawn just sounded too delicious to pass up. It was stout mixed with cold brew coffee, and it was incredible!
It was quite the fun afternoon! Have I mentioned I never want summer to end?! 🙂
