It’s Monday! (Yay?) Yay!
Hope you had fantastic weekends! What did you do? My weekend was pretty darn great. On Saturday Eric and I went to a restaurant in Cambridge called Craigie on Main which is known for, well, pretty much everything that comes out of their kitchen, but especially their burgers.
There’s actually a youtube of how these burgers are made in-house and the chef includes bone marrow and other hearty parts of the cow, and ahh they’re just so good. We both ordered fried eggs on top, which is normally my favorite thing to put on a burger, but in this case it may have been too rich. Yeah. This burger was that rich.
They only make a limited number of the burgers per night and we arrived somewhat late on Saturday night so we were
terrified a little nervous they would run out by the time we sat down. Turns out we got the last two.
However, we were both STARVING when we got to the restaurant because it was about 9pm and we had had lunch at about 11:30. So before we even chowed down on the most decadent burgers ever, we had an appetizer of pig’s tails. Yup. Pig’s tails. (Don’t google it because it will just make you sad looking at all the adorable curly tails on pigs)
But I have to say their tails are DELICIOUS. In fact, I’d like to just state for the record that I have officially found my new favorite thing. This was my first time having this part of the pig and it’s seriously out of this world good. If you ever see them on a menu, get them. They’re my new favorite pork product beating both bacon and sausage, previously my number 2 and number 1 favorite pork products, respectively.
Eric still says bacon is his number 1, but for me, it will now and forever be pig’s tails.
So, as you can tell, food was a pretty exciting part of the weekend. As I’m writing this post it’s nearly 6pm on Sunday, and I’m starving again. Starving for sweets, that is. Do you ever get a massive sweet craving after a day or two of salty foods?
It’s probably because I’m thirsty, but still.
Another example of things I do out of hunger, besides order things like pig’s tails on menus, is make playlists called FOOD that I then publish on the internet. Actually the original title was FOOD and then the second title was SUGAR but I have since changed it to Seis de Mayo because I’m cultural like that.
So, in honor of all the overindulgent deliciousness this past weekend and the craving for sweet foods that all the salty foods have left me with, this week’s mixtape is all about sweets and called: Seis de Mayo!

What did you do this weekend? Did you celebrate Cinco de Mayo? (I have to admit, after all the talk on Friday’s post, there was no guacamole for me and Eric on Sunday. We had a Sol- because our neighborhood bar doesn’t carry Corona- and then went to hang out in the park because the weather was so nice)
What’s the best burger you’ve ever had?
What do you usually crave- salty foods or sweets??
