I Got a New Camera!!

Holy Crap!

I'm so excited... after over a year of wishing, saving, ogling and researching, I finally bought myself a new camera.  What did I get?

A Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR:
I'm really looking forward to learning more about this beauty.  And I really hope you can tell the difference in my photos, too!!  Wow.  Seriously.  Wouldn't THAT be embarrassing?!?

Maybe I'll even try to take some pictures of the same meal with the old camera and the new one and see if anyone can tell which is which.  >please be obvious, please be obvious<

Boyfriend made me sushi

I am continually amazed by Boyfriend.  As I'm sure you could have guessed, I am usually the cook in our house.  However, a few months ago we took a sushi-making class together.  I assumed that I would rock the class, and end up adding sushi-making to my culinary repertoire.  

It feels good to be wrong.  It tastes good to be wrong.

Boyfriend was a natural.  I was terrible.  I blame my tiny hands.  I have miserably tiny hands.  Like a 4 year old's hands.  I wish I was kidding.
I call him, "Big Hands"

 I'm telling you what, I'm really looking forward to years of sushi.  Actually, I think that what I'm really looking forward to is the occasional night off from cooking!
Philadelphia Roll - Smoked salmon, cream cheese & cucumber
We had quite the meal.  He was on a roll... get it?  On A Roll!  Get it?  
Seven rolls in total

As you can imagine, we could not possibly eat seven rolls between the two of us.  Boyfriend had sushi for lunch the next day.  Happy problem.

Martha's Vineyard Vacation

 Boyfriend and I just got back from a week on Martha's Vineyard.  It was a wonderful (and much needed) vacation with lots of food, family, and rose'.


and one other thing.

Amazing buttery hot lobster roll
Fresh, delicious lobster.

We drove out to Menemsha one afternoon and hit up the fish market for some lobster rolls.  They had two options - hot and cold.  We got both.


And lobster bisque.

What?  Don't judge.

They were both delicious, but I tend to favor the hot lobster rolls.  Nothing but lobster and butter on a top-split hot dog bun.  The cold lobster roll is the more traditional version, very little mayo or celery or other unnecessary fillers.  Also delicious.  See for yourself.
