Horseradish Carrots from Brasserie Jo

One of my favorite appetizer dishes from Brasserie Jo in Boston has to be the carrots they kindly serve as you are seated. They are tangy, spicy and crunchy…the trifecta of yum, and definitely unforgettable for their unconventional taste. Especially, along side their crunchy French bread. Now I am hungry.   Since we love these…

Downtown’s Blowout Sale!

It ended up a pretty good Friday, though it started off rocky.  My husband inadvertently brought both sets of my car keys to work with him in town.  He did hurry back home to drop them off before 10AM…with a surprise hot latte delivery, too. :)) Later on, I took my lunch hour to check out the Downtown Andover…
