Friday night with the girls at Tapeo

Last night marked the last day of eating out this week. It was the perfect week to practice my intuitive eating skills (which I’m still learning). Trying to count calories in between so many meals out would have just stressed me out. Instead, I enjoyed every (healthy) meal at home and every indulgent bite out. It worked out quite well in my opinion and dare I say that’s the only opinion that matters right now. I am listening to ME and me only. πŸ˜‰

So yes, back to the dinner out. My friend Christina moved to Cincinnati last year and when I got an email from her that she was coming to Boston for a quick business trip, I knew we had to go out. After a fancy 3-course meal at Rialto the night before, Christina’s suggestion of Tapeo, a local tapas restaurant, was perfect. I wanted lots of little bites, a casual atmosphere and of course sangria! πŸ˜€

Hi, Christina! :)

There was 6 of us in total so we ordered a whole bunch of tapas to share. I think a good crowd of people is perfect for a tapas restaurant – this way you can taste a good part of the menu. πŸ˜‰

The dinner was really fun! I think Tapeo is decent – nothing too amazing but solid overall. The best part was definitely the company. :mrgreen:

The girls (Pam had to leave early for another restaurant week dinner. See, it’s not just me that’s taking advantage of this! πŸ˜† )
