My college roommate Meredith came to visit tonight!! She’s from Culpepper, VA and her family now lives in Lexington, so she’s here visiting from Camden, SC were she is Dr. Meredith, the VET!
Here are some hilarious college memories for you –
I think we have both aged for the better ; )
Upon arrival we took her to the bakery and gave her a tour of the house. She is an avid blog reader and said the house looked very different in person!
Meredith is also one of the best beer drinkers I know, so Matt put her to work taste-testing his collection:
I had a small bit – but stuck mostly to H20
Meredith’s mom is a flight attendant and often travels to Asia and bring back pretty Longchamp purses (i.e. knockoffs) for something like $10 bucks a piece. Mer brought me a new one since my old ones from college are quite dingy. It has a running girl on the front!
We talked and laughed and talked [Karen joined us for dinner too] and when Matt went inside to put together dinner, I brought out an appetizer of GH bread with smoked cheddar on top. This is that fancy smoked cheddar from Feast! and it’s incredible!
Dinner was a pizza-rific feast
Matt’s homemade pizza dough (a 50/50 blend of whole wheat and AP flour) topped with grilled eggplant, shrooms, Philly sauce (!!) and smoked cheddar. So amazingly delicious!
Broc on the side
Double IPA for the mouth
Along with a taste of Matt’s Dubbel.
We talked and laughed and talked through thunderstorms and rain on the porch. You know you have a friend for life when you can see each other once a year and go back to old times in a flash!
Along those lines, if you live in Camden or Columbia and want to be Meredith’s friend, she would like to be yours 😉 Seriously.
Since I took the afternoon off, I’ve got a massive inbox to clear out before I head to bed!
