Hi, guys! 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…

Hi, guys! Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! [source] How was your weekend? Or perhaps you’re enjoying a long weekend today? My weekend was nice and included some relaxation, CrossFit, friends, and good food”¦ all the makings of a wonderful weekend. Friday night, I made some spicy green juice for Mal and me, which we drank during Happy Hour while catching up with our DVR. Confession: I miss drinking. There’s just something about enjoying a…

When the Events & Marketing Manager from Abby Park invited Mal and me to their Smuttynose Beer Dinner, I jumped at the chance. Abby Park is already one of our go-to restaurants (we love the bar menu) and there’s always a mix pack of Smuttynose beer in our refrigerator, so Mal and I were really excited about this event. The menu for the beer dinner was awesome. There were lots of interesting flavor combinations, seasonal…

Thanks to you guys, Carrots ”˜N’ Cake surpassed a blog milestone today!! So, of course, Mal and I needed to celebrate it. (FYI: The milestone was traffic-related! ) I had a Groupon to Abby Park that was about to expire, so I figured tonight was the perfect night to cash it in. A simple celebration for cheap! As soon as we arrived at Abby Park, Mal and I planted ourselves at the bar like we usually do….

Mal and I had the same thing on our minds tonight: dinner out! Neither of us wanted to cook or go grocery shopping, so we decided to take advantage of the Happy Hour deal at Abby Park instead. We love the laid-back atmosphere of the restaurant, so we figured why not? We’ve been known to hang out at the bar for hours and hours as seen here and here. From the bar menu at Abby Park,…

Hooray for Date Night!! Once again, Mal and I took advantage of the Happy Hour specials at Abby Park. We started with a round of drinks. I ordered a glass of Chardonnay. To eat, Mal and I shared the Marinated Steak Tips, which are a-mazing. I ordered them the last time I visited Abby Park with my friend, Jen, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. I told Mal that we needed to order them tonight…

Tonight, I met my friend, Jen, for appetizers, wine, and girl talk at Abby Park in East Milton Square. When I lived in Southie, I saw Jen practically every week, but now that I live outside of the city, I rarely see her. It’s actually very sad. 🙁 Jen and I have been playing phone tag for a couple of weeks now, so we finally talked yesterday and made plans to get together this evening….

Yesterday’s weather was absolutely AMAZING! I still can’t get over it. It put me in such a fantastic mood all day long. 😀 It’s funny how weather can do that, isn’t it? In the late afternoon, Mal and I decided to have an impromptu date night and go out to dinner. We walked to the restaurant so we could continue to enjoy the wonderful weather. On our walk, we encountered so many signs of spring….
