Braided Baskets

Love these braided baskets from Colonial Mills available on One Kings Lane today.  The problem would be picking which color!

Farm to Table

Last week I finally got to try Empire State South.  The restaurant issue of The Atlantan magazine claimed it to be the 'Best Restaurant,' so when a friend let me pick the restaurant for our dinner out, I jumped at the chance to go.

I just loved the interior design, and the bocce ball court outside - and the food was amazing!!  We started out with the In Jars - which were small canning jars filled with spreads.  My favorites of these were the pimento cheese with bacon marmalade and the boiled peanut hummus, which you can find a recipe for here.

Next we had the Soft Poached Farm Egg - so delicious I wanted to lick the bowl.  For entrees, I had a grouper special, and my friend had the Plow Point Farms Chicken Roulade - both of which were divine.

It was definitely the best meal I've had in a while.  I can't wait to find a reason to go back!

A Little Surprise

One little thing I forgot to share about our trip.  My sister lives in the tiniest of railroad towns in Indiana.  There's not much there - even their grocery store has closed.  What IS there is the cutest coffee shop, and boy is their coffee good!  And how cute is that decor?  I love the tin roof, wall of windows, and chandelier!
