Wedding in Boston

Posted on September 6, 2010

This weekend, Matt and I headed up north for a wedding outside of Boston.  We were there to celebrate Jon (Matt’s old roommate and close friend) and Ali.  It was a great weekend filled with good friends and fun festivities, oh and good food, too.

Friday afternoon we had the chance to stop in Boston for some exploring along Newbury Street.  I hadn’t been there in a long time so it was nice to get the chance to be tourists for a few hours. I must say, though, it is wrong to put cupcakes in the name of a store that doesn’t actually sell cupcakes…

No carbs and calorie free?!

That night was the rehearsal dinner where we got a taste of New England with a lobster bake! The meal started with salad, clam chowder, mussels and clams and then of course we had lobster.

We got really into it…

The dinner ended with traditional moon pies and baseball cakes to represent the bride and groom’s respective teams.

Matt is a pro at cocktail hours

And then, after my fair share of champagne, I think I overdid it on dessert.  They had a chocolate and vanilla wedding cake with some sort of  coffee filling and I think a buttercream icing.  Between cake and the freshly whipped cream, I went a little bit overboard.  Too much champagne + dessert buffet = room for improvement.

I try hard to eat intuitively, but sometimes desserts get the best of me!  Something I am always trying to work on!

What are your food weaknesses?  How do you stop yourself from overeating them?
