Hey, hi, hello world!
today this whole week my blog topics are in complete disarray. I felt unprepared and scatter brained with all the spontaneous changes of topics I was going to publish for the week.
Today WAS going to be my 2017 TO-DO list. But not only do I not really have a set list of things other than drink more water and travel, I was like well what the heck am I even going to write. That is until I fell upon AlifyaLifestyle’s post yesterday, New Beginnings she says, “One of my major goals for this year is to truly be CONTENT. Content in what I achieve and aspire to do more and better everyday” And that right there just summed up my to-do list 🙂 Thank you Alifya for that! But really, you’re either a New Year Resolutions maker or not. And I’m not.
But of course, I have goals and dreams for my near-far future but none of which have to do with how much I want to work out, read, save money, drink water, travel. Those are things I will do every year; all 24 hours 7 days a week, 365 days of the year! Ya know?
Okay now onto the good stuff, FOOD!
A month or so back The Prudential building in Boston opened up
And on this specific day and time that Andrew and I went, there was a line wrapped around twice to even get inside. So we nixed the idea and carried on.
But yesterday we decided to go back!
It’s this amazing little area inspired by Italy (of course) filled with an emporium of groceries, markets, and delicious Italian inspired eateries.
The market area
They had all fresh everything; meats, handmade pastas, seafood, cheeses, bread, wine, fruits, pastries, everything- it was so splendid!
They had a ton of things you can buy off the shelves
A huge wine selection
So many different assorted pastas and brands and types.
Freshly sliced Prosciutto, my personal favorite
And then there was this where they would hand make the pastas right in front of you
All throughout Eataly were these delectable stacks of cheese wheels which made the aromas as you were walking around smell of fresh cheese for all you cheese lovers like myself 😉
And the best part was the food options.
Here’s the scoop: There’s two sit down sections and in each of the two sections there’s 1 menu for 4-5 of the little food hubs that consisted of either: pasta, seafood, pizzas, appetizers, and of course wine options
Otherwise there’s also other stands if you wanted to grab pizza to go, there was a seafood sit down area, gelato, pastries, etc…
The options were limitless. But Andrew and I wanted to try one of the sit down areas and order.
I was craving some good ol handmade pasta and this one (of the two) had more pasta options…
Te amo ❤
So the best thing (also toughest thing) was that the entire menu was in Italian. I mean the only thing I could really decipher was the Spaghettoni-Spaghetti….
Andrew got the SALSICCIOTTA
And I got BUCATINI all’Amatriciana. Majority of the pastas are cooked al dente, which from prior experience I didn’t think I liked but this was amazing.
And that was Eataly
Cannot wait to go back…I’m dreaming of that red sauce…
