red sox game

We headed to the Red Sox game tonight.  It was a gorgeous night in the city, not too hot with a cool breeze, so it was perfect for a game.

We had awesome seats behind home plate.

I love the energy at Fenway Park.  Everyone is always so excited to be there.  But, the game tonight was pretty boring.  Kansas City got 7 runs in the 4th inning which set the tone for the rest of the game.

It sure was fun to be there, though!

Before the game, I obviously ate some dinner.  I got home from work too late too meet Brant and his cousins for dinner, so I grabbed a quick Almond Butter & Jelly Sandwich on whole wheat before heading out.

I had a few minutes to kill once I got over to Fenway and I was still hungry, so I stopped by UFood Grill.

I had never been there before, but the concept is pretty cool.

From the website:

Real food — it’s that simple

The most important thing at UFood Grill is taste, hands down! Our chef has designed a broad menu of better-for-you versions of traditional favorites and innovative original creations. We take a back-to-basics approach to tasty, healthful cooking, where everything we serve is rooted in quality—from choice meats, to natural and organic ingredients, fresh produce, whole grains, and light cheeses and dressings. All of our menu items are baked, grilled or steamed. Nothing is fried—we don’t even have fryers in our restaurants!

They serve all sorts of stuff – wraps, panini’s, burgers, soups, smoothies, frozen yogurt and salads.  I was really excited to try it out, but tonight I was just in the mood for some veggies to pair with my PB&J and I needed something really quick!  Luckily, they have a lot of sides to choose from and they are all $1.99.  I ordered a side of the steamed veggies and vegetarian black beans.

Don’t let the photo fool you, these sides are small!  But, they were so good!  The veggies were steamed just right…not soggy and limp as many steamed veggies are in restaurants.  And, the black beans were so flavorful.  It was a great compliment to my sandwich.  It is great to have an option for healthy foods as ‘fast food’.  These were real veggies and beans.  I would go back there in a second to try something else (or just for the sides again!).  It was good to get some more food before heading into Fenway where the healthy options are quite limited.  Luckily, with a full belly I didn’t crave a big soft pretzel!

After the game the cravings hit and we took our guests to J.P. Lick’s for some ice cream!  I had a small with the Chocolate Fudge sorbet, which was super chocolaty.

Yay for 3 day weekends!
