The Friday Five: Links, Foxes, Clover Food Lab, Veggie Burgers, and GIFs!

1. Reading: 

2. Listening: Foxes – Youth (Adventure Club Remix)

3. Eating:  What was once just a food truck in an alley by MIT has turned into a group of both trucks and restaurants around Boston. Clover Food Lab focuses on simplicity and speed, but somehow manages to serve up fresh, flavorful food. The ever-changing menu is tiny with everything being as seasonal and locally sourced as possible. In between work, I stopped at the Burlington location and was greeted by a super friendly and helpful staff. I had the Chickpea Plate with chickpea fritters, hummus, pickled onions, cabbage, a tomato & cucumber salad, and a carrot salad. While I was waiting for my order, one of the employees had made an extra serving of rosemary fries and asked if I wanted some. Um, yes please.

I was actually surprised that they claim to focus on simplicity because this was anything but simple. It was unbelievably fresh and tasty. The hummus was so smooth and creamy, I could’ve eaten it by the spoonful. And maybe I did. 😉

  • I’m definitely an introvert as well. And proud of it! My favorite saying about introverts: “Introverts unite!….Separately.” Ha!

  • Can you just write an entire book of gifs? I’d buy 10 copies. Please and thank you 🙂

  • itzyskitchen

    hahahha- everyone feels that way driving around Boston. When the big dig was going on it was even worse. They’d just randomly shut down roads with no detour…good times. I’m with Brittany- more gifs!

  • My exact same response to taking shots now. I was all about them in college. Now, I try to avoid them as much as possible ha.

    • i cringe every time i see one. no matter what it is.

  • Amy

    Have a great weekend!

  • Meg

    i have a hard time believing you’re an introvert????? 🙂

    • hahaha…yeah who knows. i’m super friendly and outgoing but defffffinitely have a lot of introverted traits

  • Biana Perez

    I have yet to try Clover – Gary is constantly raving about it!! Love the gif of shots now vs. college #truth!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    • oh you should go get what i had! 🙂

  • Sheanna Caban

    Girl, we need to talk about the convincing someone to love what I’m selling. I have some STORIES!!! I’m also an introvert (as you well know)….And yet, here we both are….Selling things. Crazy.

  • Stacy G

    I am definitely an introvert also! I like to have time to myself for projects and to read, etc. Love the gifs! Have a fab weekend!

    • i like to have time to hide from people haha

  • eww i hate shots. they are the worsssst. checking out those 19 ingredients! have a great weekend xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  • Jillian

    I am a pure introvert. No surprise there! Also, when I click on the Trader Joes link, it takes me to the 19 ingredient link instead. Can you fix it? I am obsessed with TJs!

  • Elise

    Bahahaha the shots gifs! That is exactly how I felt and feel!

  • I’m totally a true introvert. I fight it like crazy because I don’t want to be lame, but I love my nights in.

  • It looks like you shared some great links I need to check out! Also loving all those gifs! And I haven’t tried a veggie burger in a long time and think I might need to try one again!

  • I am an extrovert, although I haven’t taken that quiz… all the tests I have done say extrovert, so yeah. I’m kinda surprised that yours came up introvert!

    Those veggie burgers look absolutely delicious- and I love that you posted that article about gluten. Nothing against those going gluten free, but it’s not always necessary and there are lots of other things in foods out there that are actually worse…

  • Nikki @ The Pink Growl

    That Amy Poehler gif is hilarious!

  • In regards to that hair gif…..totally me today….someone asked me today “your hair looks great today” and I was like “oh thanks it’s actually clean” 😉

  • Shelby Hanchey

    Hahah TRUTH on the shots – both college and now. Now, it’s like being offered straight gasoline. No me gusta either. Have a great weekend!

  • Bahahahaa @ taking shots in college vs taking them now! DITTO!
    Those thai veggie burgers look insanely delicious!

  • Chelsea’s Healthy Kitchen

    Haha that’s so true about shots! I have absolutely no desire to do them anymore. I’ll take a nice glass of red wine and sip it slowly thanks. 😛

  • That Thai veggie burger looks and sounds delish!

  • Andrea

    Driving in boston is so ridiculous, I must admit! Have you tried the “Cookie Monstah” food truck? It’s my fav!

    • cheri

      I agree, so yummy!
