Oh whatta day!
We’re back home. And home doesn’t feel like home because we might have to evacuate the premises in 30 days [No news on our counter offer yet...]
After blogging we read a little on the porch and made our way to Biltmore Village for a little walking. We weren’t sure if we wanted to get on the road or eat an early lunch. Decided on lunch!
At the famous Corner Kitchen.
We had to wait 30 minutes and killed the time walking around the village area.
Tired of smiling for photos:
I really wanted the Lavender Chicken Salad but they were serving it on the brunch menu.
But something I might not have thought twice about caught my attention: Lox + Bagel. It came with homefries but I was able to sub in a really nice side salad. Perfect!
That would be a wedge of cream cheese. I ate half the bagel and a few tsp of cream cheese and gave the other half to Matt.
The salmon was awesome!
The bagel was huge and I think it was fried!?!? It tasted kind of like a funnel cake. In a good way!
Matt got Sesame Crusted Catfish over an Asian Salad. He raved about it!! I had a bite of the fish – it was perfectly crispy! All in all, we were really impressed by Corner Kitchen. I need to go back and try that lavender salad!!
Take me homeeeeee, country roaddddsss
I made a wager with Matt: If he drove the whole way home, I would do all the grocery shopping. He agreed!! SCORE! I HATE DRIVING!
Passing by Lake Lure – it was packed!
And I went on a grocery shopping trip to EarthFare and Harris Teeter. It was good. I like food!
While I was gone, Matt and his friend "Bun Bun" played. Since he sits at the kitchen table on his computer quite often, he’s noticed that Bun Bun lives in the yard and comes out to play frequently, nibbling on our garden. Matt caught him in action today!
I came home from Earthfare and opened up a treat I had in the fridge. Drank half. I love these things and I have no idea why.
I got to work on the old lunchbox and on dinner as well.
Tonight’s dinner was AMAZING but I can’t share the recipe because it’s going in a COOKBOOK! A real, live cookbook. Goodbite, where I’ve done a few videos, got a book deal and invited me to participate
Behold: Good Bite’s Weeknight Meals: Delicious Made Easy is coming to shelves Fall 2011.
I’m really excited about this new fishy recipe!
On the side of the mysterious recipe, I sautéed some bitter mustard greens along with a squeeze of lemon and some Garlic Gold Parmesan nuggets.
And Matt grilled and buttered some corn!
Romantic end to a romantic weekend:
Goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight.
