Tomasso

This morning I pumped out a record 6 times around the neighborhood(about 6.75 miles). My legs are barking after them hills–maybe I’ll just take an easy 5 tomorrow. Post workout eats:

Breakfast

Breakfast

Carrot Juice, an English muffin, 1/2 with blueberry peach cobbler and amaretto jam and 1/2 with mighty maple peanut butter, and a parfait with plain Chobani, 1/2 a peach, blueberries, and agave nectar. I’m glad I’m a slow eater because I do not want this to end.

Anyway, after posting yesterday there was a quick run to the store to get some Spicy Black Bean Morningstar Veggieburger because I was craving this:

Lunch

Lunch

A spicy black bean burger with grilled mango on top. This tasted as good as I thought it would; I feel oddly proud of myself for dreaming up this concoction and making it happen lol.

After that there was various shopping. I needed a new mouse for my laptop, grabbed 3 boxes of kashi granola bars while at Target(peanut peanut butter, trail mix, and honey almond flax ftw). Then we stopped in a little health food store I’d seen but never been in; it was basically all the natural stuff at Hannafords, but concentrated into one store. They didn’t have a great selection, but still some cool stuff. I want to get the soft snickerdoodle vegan cookies from there and see how they are(not homemade, but some brand I haven’t seen other places).

After that, there was some arm twisting and negotiating; basically I did not feel like eating out, but certain other people had been grouchy all day and were dead set on going out and insisting I come as well. So, for a compromise, I got to pick out the restaurant. I chose this Italian place near by that seemed pretty fancy to which I’d never been, called Tomasso

I loved the homey, Italian atmosphere. The chef was very friendly and quite knowledgeable about all the dishes(as he should be since they were his lol). We decided to get 2 antipasti and pizze to share for the whole table, which worked out perfectly because I was debating between which pizze I wanted.

Comocoro

Proscuitto e Melon

Proscuitto e Melon

Our antipasti were the comocoro and proscuitto e melon. Both of these dishes were absolutely remarkable. The comocoro had grilled watermelon with goat cheese and mint. The creaminess of the goat cheese blended beautifully with the warm melon, and the mint was a nice subtle back-flavor. The prosciutto e melon was ok but a little bland. The meat could have used a stronger flavor; I ended up sprinkling salt over the cantaloupe and eating it that way(does anybody else do this? I feel like it makes it 10 times more delicious).

Pizze con Fichi

Pizze Margharita

Pizze Margharita

Not only were the pizzi a work of art, but both were incredibly flavorful. The margharita had an incredible thin crust with a light tomato base, bufala mozzarella, and basil; it tasted just like my favorite pizze from Rome! And the pizze con fichi was in a league of its own; this pizze had black mission figs, goat cheese, and vin cotta. The figs were warm and went perfect with the sweet vin cotta. the goat cheese added a great saltiness and creamy texture to the dish. If you live anywhere in the Southborough area, please do check out this restaurant

Goat cheese= heaven. Now I want some!

Black bean burger with grilled mango on top? You should be proud of yourself – that sounds amazing! Those pizzas look super good as well.
