Good morning and happy Monday! Did everyone have a nice weekend? I think we last left off with me sharing our girls night, right? So fun! After publishing that post yesterday, I got very busy with my “Sunday things,” including a Target run, cooking, baking and going for a nice walk.
How nice was the weather yesterday?! I couldn’t get over it! And I’ll tell ya, gabbing with mom for 30 minutes of my walk definitely helped to pass the time- thanks mom:)
With a name like Monique Gagnon, you might be wondering how on earth I could ever feel Greek, right? Well, last night my sister was invited to her study abroad program’s 50th anniversary at Vlora Restaurant which is on Boylston Street in the Back Bay, and she invited me to join her. We dined there a few years ago for Danielle’s birthday because she was missing Greek food (she studied abroad in Athens, Greece in the fall of 2009) and have always wanted to go back, so I obviously jumped at the opportunity!
As soon as we walked in, they showed us where to go and gave us the tip to order the Sangria- twist my arm- I LOVE sangria!
My intentions going into this were to have a couple of apps and then save myself to have dinner at home since I had made a delicious looking veggie sauce and chicken sausage (recipe to come soon!), but after chatting (so nice to meet you, Rebecca) and enjoying some adult beverages, I decided that I should probably just make myself a plate. I mean, I love the food there so my meal at home could definitely wait!
I had a chicken skewer, some grilled veggies, an Arancini ball (total splurge, but so worth it!), tomato and feta skewers and some goat cheese/honey mixture. Not pictured were the watermelon and feta bites- holy yum! The most refreshing little treat! Definitely check out their menu because if you like Greek/Mediterranean food, it’s totally drool-worthy!
We got home just after 8:30, meaning we were able to catch Revenge! Anyone else following that? Anyone else think that it’s getting a little twisted now?
Are you guys following and “liking” me? If you are- thank you!!! If not, check me out:)
I hope everyone has a great Monday! I am working from home which always makes Monday seem a little better. I plan on getting my own workout in this morning/today and then teaching Dynamax at the YMCA.
Questions for you: Are you a fan of Greek food? What’s your favorite non-American style food? Do anything share-worthy over the weekend? I love to hear from you!

Looks like you had a fun sisters night 🙂 missing you both!
Love the easter m&m cookies, too…and your hair is getting so long, it looks beautiful!
Aw, thanks!! It is SO long. I’m getting it trimmed and highlighted for my bday next month. can’t wait! miss you!
I have to say, the food we ate in Greece was the BEST! Everything I put in my mouth felt healthy–I’ve never had tomatoes better than those(especially since it was late November when we were there!)Sorry, Honey, but the English food we had while visiting you in Bath just didn’t match up the Mediterranean food in Greece. I do have to admit, however, that French cuisine is still my favorite–give me a sauce, and I’m happy! Mom
I know! I remember that first day we were there and had those delicious tomato and feta salads- SO good! I didn’t think the food in England was as bad as everyone says, but Greek food is way lighter and healthier! And, obvi French is my favorite:)
