WE. ARE. HOME!!! And I’m never leaving!! [Knock on wood]. At least for a long, long time!
Today’s road trip to Charlottesville included a pit stop in Warrenton, Virginia to visit Pablo, Linda and the latest Great Harvest!
Warrenton is SO charming
And I love how they designed their store!
It’s been a while since I had fresh Great Harvest bread hot out of the oven
SO GOOD with honey butter!!!
You MUST travel to Warrenton to try this guy out – a fluffy roll, stuffed with apples, cinnamon sugar and white cheddar cheese!!
After a taste tour, we headed down the street to….the Black Bear Bistro!
And REALLY good fresh food!! Again, you MUST travel to Warrenton!
Matt got a club sandwich on …Great Harvest bread!
Larbs and I went halvsies on sandwiches…splitting the blackened salmon pita and a hummus wrap
I had half the pita (which was amazing!!) and 1 of the wrap halves – plus all of my veggies!
How MUCH is that doggie in the window?
An annoying hour of stop and go driving in Matt’s manual (I hate manuals!! Why would you drive a manual if you can think less and let an automatic drive for you!?) we were back HOMMMMEEE!!
We made conversation with the owners of Bluegrass Brewing Company – very fun!
I had a taste of the South Street Brewery Nut Brown Ale (which was delicious but not as good as Bluegrass Brewing’s Bourbon Barrel Stout!)
Back downtown, Karen and Andrew arrived! My week is still going and going and going – we now have company!
Andrew and Larbs make nice siblings
We walked straight to dinner, as it was 8PM and we were hangry!
The gentlemen got fancy margaritas – Matt the Spice-a-Rita made with jalopeno again. Seriously, the BEST margarita I’ve ever had!! You MUST drive to Cville immediately to try it.
As an appetizer, we shared a platter of yuca fries smothered in some kind of mushroom sauce and cheese. OM Heavens
I had the Gibson Burrito in a bowl for dinner – Crispy Cod, Truffled Mushrooms and Oven Roasted Tomatoes with a Cilantro Crema. I made a serious dent in this pile of goodness. Going back for another tomorrow.
Matt had the Po Boy burrito with soft shell crab – holy crab cake.
Hoping the skies look like this again when I wake up tomorrow. The weekend is to include a music + beer festival, more fun eats, and some gooey brownie!
