A Bachelorette + A Pico De Gallo Recipe

This past weekend I headed to Boston for my friend Jill's Bachelorette. We had a really good time! We stayed at the Millennium Hotel next to Faneuil Hall, I highly recommend it. 
It had a great view of the marketplace and was walking distance to all the popular attractions!
We started the celebration off having lunch at Cheer's and did a little shopping at Faneuil Hall Marketplace.
 Then we brought the festivities to the hotel room where the Bachelorette party really got started...
After the champagne, lingerie gifts, and penis games...we headed to dinner at Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar, which was to die for! I loved the Orange Pomegranate Mojito and Spicy Cucumber Margarita. They were AMAZING!
The guacamole was as good as it looks!
 And to finish off the incredible dinner we had these beautiful tequila shots in honor of Jill!
After dinner, we danced the night away at Ned Devine's, which is an Irish Pub in Faneuil Hall. There was an awesome live band, 3 different bars, and a huge dance floor!
In the morning, the festivities continued with some cocktail's  and Brunch at The Living Room.
Then we walked over to Mike's Pastry to pick up some of the best cannoli's you could ever have!

I can't think of a better way to end Jill's Last Fling Before the Ring!! ;)

 Pico De Gallo 


  • 5 whole Plum (roma) Tomatoes
  • 1/2 whole Large (or 1 Small) Onion
  • 3 whole Jalapeno Peppers
  • Cilantro
  • Lime Juice
  • Salt To Taste
Chop jalapenos, tomatoes and onions into a very small dice. (Leave seeds in your jalapenos for a hotter pico). Adjust amount of jalapenos to your preferred temperature.

Next, chop up a nice-sized bunch of cilantro. Just remove and discard the long leafless stems before chopping. No need to remove the leaves from the stems completely.

Place all of these ingredients together in a bowl and give it a good stir.
Squeeze the juice of one lime into the bowl.

Add salt to taste and stir again.
