So when we started this blog we promised it would be about new adventures, near and far – food, beer, wine, travel, photography and the like. Â As you may have noticed, it’s been a little food and beverage heavy around here. Â Well, never fear. Â We are about to get a little more adventurous around here…meaning we are going to be venturing in restaurants and kitchens outside Charlotte.
BG and I are off on a little road trip this morning to Connecticut to visit one of my dearest friends. (Since we met as college freshmen at Ole Miss – 16 years ago O.M.G. – I can officially call her one of my OLDEST and dearest friends.) We are going to break the trip up on the way up and back down and try to take in as much New England fall goodness as possible. Â I know it’s probably a little early, but I am praying with every ounce of my strength to catch some New England fall temps. I am so OVER the 80 and 90-degree Southern weather. Â I want to wear jeans, a light sweater, and maybe a lovely scarf – DAMN IT! (so much so that I went and purchased some of these items today even though it’s not yet nearly cool enough to don them in the Queen City). Â Is that too much to ask? Â It will be October in less than 10 days. Â I just don’t think that having a little chill in the air is asking too much.
Anyway, we’ve grabbed our standard breakfast-to-go
and are on our way.
Don’t worry, the D90, the MacBook Pro and the Think Pad are all in tow. Â We’ll keep you posted on the food, fun, adventure and hopefully a little New England fall leaf peeping along the way. Â (By “adventure” I mean we are undecided as to the route we will take back home. Â It’s very unlike OCD me, not to have the whole thing planned out to a T three weeks in advance.)
