My husband, my mini schnauzer Wolfie and I went up to Boston last weekend.  The main reason for going was for my husband and his pal Chris to take part in a fall century bike ride on Sunday.  It was a fun weekend and the highlight for me was Saturday.

We went into the city on a gorgeous Saturday.  We had fun exploring The North End, or Little Italy as it’s known with our friends.  We wondered in and out of specialty food shops, produce shops, stopped for espresso and gelato and really lucked out when we stopped in Monica’s Mercato, where we had to restrain ourselves from buying up every kind of cheese, meat and antipasto they had.

We did leave with some scrumptious homemade ravioli, fresh mozzerrella and parmesan cheeses, cheese stuffed peppadews, herby focaccia and baci for our evening meal that we enjoyed with the DFH beers we brought along.
