We left Friday night and Mike (who is used to a schedule where he is up super early) drove through the night while I mostly slept through Indiana, Ohio, Pennslyvania and New York. Saturday we arrived in Massachusetts and unloaded all of our cargo at our home-for-the-week. We won the use of this vacation apartment at the church service auction and didn't really know too much about it or the town it was in. It turned out to be a really cute top story of a large old house in Natick, which is an equally adorable town!
Dosa Temple. I had the Madras Tiffin, which was a HUGE meal that included idli, vada, a masala dosa, vegetable uthappam, and dessert. The idli (steamed rice cakes) were not terribly good, but I'm not a big fan anyway. The vada (lentil doughnut) was greasy. But the dosa made up for it! Crispy and delicious and HUGE, and filled with a mildly spicy veggie and potato mixture! The uthappam was ok, kind of bland but that's what all the sauces and chutneys are for! Dessert was payasam which is vermicelli noodles in a sweet milk with raisins and nuts, very tasty!
Coolidge Hill, which was just a couple of blocks from where we were staying.
Bon Me truck. I got it with tofu and mushrooms on top, spicy peanut dressing and added jalapenos, it was SPICY! Mike and I got some super awesome brownies from Yummy Mummy Brownies, he got peanut butter and I got marzipan. No picture, we ate them too fast!
Freedom Trail Foundation tour. Our guide was great, I would highly recommend this organization. (There are several different ones that give tours but this is the only one that is a non-profit and proceeds to toward preserving the sites on the Freedom Trail.)
