If there is one thing we do when we are not home, it is to check out local places to eat and drink. It is our duty to assist the local economy, right?
We lived the majority of our adult lives in Kansas City and enjoyed many a good BBQ meal. NH doesn’t do BBQ.
So, we are really enjoying the local food and have also visited two craft breweries with one more on the agenda for this week.
Here’s a sample of what we’ve enjoyed out and about over the past two weeks while exploring the area.
The best craft beer I’ve had is Peach Ale at Quigley’s Pint & Plate, and it was a 10+. The crab cake sandwich was very good, and the pork plate with the cinnamon butter for the hush puppies was delicious. The pecan pie with vanilla bean ice cream and fresh cinnamon whipped cream was the best pie ever. And, yes, we split it. 🙂 The chips with blue cheese at Liberty Brewery & Grill were quite tasty, the praline fudge from Sweeties on Pawley’s Island was a gastronomical indulgence, and the shakes were good.
The rest of the time, we’re eating a much healthier, lower carb diet and walking the beach.
I didn’t do any beach walking this past weekend because the area experienced record cold temperatures just like the rest of the Country.
At home, we know every trick in the book when it comes to cold and keeping it out. This area is built for warm weather.
When the bad weather rolled through on Saturday morning, I’m watching it out the window and hearing a noise. I thought there were several planes landing at the local airport. After a while, I decided there couldn’t be that many planes landing anywhere and went to investigate. The noise originated from air leaks around the front door. I had to laugh out loud at myself. I don’t think weather stripping and draft dodgers are big sellers down here. 🙂
After today, the weather is forecasted to move back up into the 60’s-70’s. We’ll be back out walking and checking out the area.
Hope you are all having a good start to the second week of the new year and survived the storm. Did you get cold temps or snow from winter storm Helena?
