So Much Eating Out

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Don’t get me wrong, I love dining out. But, I’ve gotten to that point where I am sick of eating out.

After seriously overindulging in San Francisco, going out to dinner 3 times this week (Masa, Shenanigan’s, and Jacob Wirth’s), and then eating breakfast at a diner this morning, I am done. It’s just too much for me. I actually feel sort of gross. 😕

Mal and I were supposed to have a fancy sushi dinner tonight for “date night,” but I’m pretty sure we’re going to cancel. I can’t even think about eating out again! I’m ready for a home-cooked meal!


It’s a gray, rainy morning in South Boston today, so I was in no rush to get my day started. Mal and I slept in until almost 9:00 before heading out to breakfast at Mul’s Diner.


Icky day. Boo.


I love Mul’s! Good food, quick and friendly service, cheap prices– I think it just might be our new breakfast place! 😀

The diner is so adorable with it’s old-fashioned tables, comfy booths, and counter seating, all of which is surrounded by bright red walls, black and white tiles, and vintage pieces on the walls. Love it!




I started with a mug of pumpkin spice coffee, which was a little weak.


But not weak enough to turn down a second cup! 😉 I love pumpkin coffee!


For breakfast, I ordered one egg over easy with homefries and raisin toast.


Yum!!! It doesn’t look like a lot of food, but it was the perfect amount. I left Mul’s feeling satisfied, not stuffed.



Friday Night

Our good friend, Jacky, is moving to Tahoe next week, so a huge group of us got together last night at Jacob Wirth’s to give her a proper send-off.


We had a rowdy bunch of 24!



We had heard good things about the Friday Night Sing-Alongs at Jacob Wirth’s, so we rallied the troops for a fun evening.



I requested Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’“! 😀


Dinner started with a few orders of Fried Pickles for the table.


Mal and I shared one. So delicious!


And then we had beer… lots and lots of it!


I had at least 3 beers last night… maybe 4? Ugh. Surprisingly, I wasn’t hungover this morning!


For dinner, Mal and I shared the Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese, which was made with elbow macaroni, a mild bleu cheese sauce, grilled chicken, and buffalo sauce.


The Mac and Cheese was GOOD! But, I think it could have been BETTER. It was a little watery and there wasn’t nearly enough buffalo sauce and bleu cheese for my liking.



Even still, Mal and I finished the meal.


And then came out the Bon Voyage Irish Car Bombs!


I chose not to participate, but my dear husband did! Poor Jacky could barely finish her Car Bomb!

Mal didn’t feel great when he woke up this morning, but the Eggs Benedict at Mul’s Diner definitely made him feel better.

We’re spending the rest of the morning in our “movie suits” and watching Slumdog Millionaire— I still can’t believe we haven’t seen it!



  1. I know what you mean about eating out! I pretty much never eat out because, in addition to the expense, I always feel awful the next day. Even though I always choose healthy choices, it seems like there’s always some hidden extra sodium or oil or something that makes me feel gross.

  2. So funny to see Mul’s on your blog (even though you live in Southie). My family used to own this place! It’s changed so much since then but I have so many wonderful memories of that place. My dad was chef and owner and they never wrote down the orders – the waitresses would just yell them out. I can remember it like it was yesterday 🙂

  3. My family and I went out to dinner not to long ago and saw fried pickles on the menu – we had never heard of them before so we had to give them a try…
    …They were served with a horseradish sauce and they were suprisingly good! Definitely different! 🙂
