I haven't posted for awhile because of a flurry of activity. We moved into a new house in Charlestown, MA -- for those non-New England readers, it's where Paul Revere ended his ride at Bunker Hill. This has increased my commute from 2 minutes to 25 minutes. Really not a hardship but a bit of an adjustment for my spoiled self. Look forward to some new kitchen adventures and some BBQ adventures! Once we get a BBQ for our deck that is!
Immediately after our move (we moved on Wednesday), we flew to San Francisco because my man friend's twin brother had tickets to the Outside Lands festival in Golden Gate Park. I'll reveal more about this silly adventure later. As expected, flying cross-country 1.5 days after moving into a new house was not the greatest idea for these two tired, old and boring people.
But really, it was all worth it to stumble upon a Beard Papa's just around the corner from our hotel when I was feeling exceedingly grumpy and crotchety.
There used to be one of these in Faneuil Hall but it closed down. Probably because people here thought it was weird, but I thought it rocked! They make fresh cream puffs right in front of your eyes. Injecting the cream into the puffy thing as you watch! There are also lots of other treats too. I've only ever tried the molten chocolate lava thing, which was deeeeelicious warmed in the micro-onde. Beware the hot molten choclatey center that can burn the roof our your mouth. They had tiramisu cheesecake at the location in San Fran, which I now regret not going back for. The flavour of the week this week was caramel, so we had one chocolate and one caramel.
Fraternal Twin cream puffs for a fraternal twin brother organized weekend!
I'll have to fly back there to get a green tea flavoured one, but will have to time it right since the flavour changes weekly. Maybe I'll call them before I fly cross-country again. And I'll try to schedule it at least a week after a major move. Could be tricky!
