I went out to dinner on Friday with a friend. We went to the Grotto on Beacon Hill. It's Italian and was quite good. My friend is a foody and I'm not really, but we both had a good time. My friend had the pumpkin risotto, served in a pumpkin. It was so cute. The picture below was taken on my cell phone and was really dark, but hopefully you can still see it. I had gnocchi for the first time--yum!
