Weekend in Boston – part 1

My boyfriend and I are in Boston right now. We came up here for his cousin’s wedding. The wedding was very lovely. It was at a botanical garden, and we were surrounded by a lot of beautiful flowers and plants. I’ll post what I got to eat at the wedding. The hors d’oeuvres were very delicious!

As I wrote this post, I remembered why I thought I wouldn’t be a good food blogger. I can’t remember the name of foods I eat. And usually all I can say about food is “yummy”,  “meh” or “yuck.” So please don’t think of this post as a “food blog.” It’s more like a food album for good food I ate. 😛

Chicken, apricot and something on puffy pastry

They forgot to put my last name on my name card. I felt like a first-name-only celebrity.

The following morning, we went to a bakery to get breakfast. But we ended up coming home with cupcakes and a cinnamon roll.
We just couldn’t resist.  We  bought Boston cream pie (in the shape of cupcake!), a cream cheese brownie (in the shape of cupcake!), and a cinnamon bun. When we were at the store, everything looked so good that I asked them if I could take pictures of them. A girl who works there was a bit surprised by my request, and said “Um, okay… They look good enough to take pictures, I guess…?” It’s a small town bakery, so she must have thought that I was a weirdo. They seem pretty famous in the area though.

Boston cream pie Its Boston cream cupcake! Genious!

"Boston cream pie" It's Boston cream cupcake! Genius!

I don't know how we managed to pick just three from this deliciousness.

"Pecan sticky buns" This is what 6 pieces of pecan sticky buns look like when it's freshly out from the oven!

"Brioche cinnamon bun" Look at the frosting!

Wow those pecan sticky buns look so good! Definitely some fun foods, thanks for taking pictures for all of us to see.

This makes me feel like one of Pavlov’s dogs when the bell rings…

One question from a non-american: What is Boston cream -pie?? I have never heard of it before! (the other things are sort of self-explanatory) 🙂

All the food looks great. Did you get to try some of their seafood yet in Boston, or any italian places? I went last year and many people say cannolis are very popular. 🙂
