Beyond the Kitchen

Life Lately:

We had this AMAZING Thai brunch in Boston at Banyan. I’m still dreaming of this gluten-free sandwich on scallion pancakes.

Earlier this week I took a few days to go on our annual spa trip with very special friends. We had the best time relaxing, laughing, and enjoying Norwich Spa and Mohegan Sun!

Norwich Spa & Mohegan Sun

We stayed at The Spa at Norwich Inn, then took quick 5 minute taxis to Mohegan each night. We ate at Tuscany and Bar American, and visited our favorite, Vista Lounge, both nights!

Does it get any better than this? I can’t wait to cook through this week’s CSA haul!

I’ve been talking a lot more about what products I’m using to create a non-toxic home and I can’t say enough amazing things about what I’ve been using lately.
