No bones about it, I like to eat. Here are some of my favorite local, non-local + homemade eats.
There’s something about oatmeal when someone else makes it for you. Warm, comforting + a perfect balance of fresh, tart fruit + sweet maple syrup. This beautiful bowl is from Ugly Mugs.
My favorite breakfast to make at home is farina/cream of wheat. Add some salted butter + dried cranberries – mmm mmm mmmm!
Salty, crispy fried veggie spring rolls from Vietnam [Philadelphia, PA]. Wrap them up with some pickled daikon, mint + cucumber in a cold iceberg lettuce leaf and proceed to stuff. your. face!
When summer tomatoes are at their peak, I make my egg salad sandwiches salad-less [no mayo]. Just stack slices of warm just-boiled eggs, onion + tomatoes on some toasty whole grain bread and top with a pinch or two of crunchy sea salt.
Do not ever visit Asheville, NC and not eat at Tupelo Honey and not have a biscuit + their lemonade-of-the-season [this one’s Rosemary]. Seriously, don’t.
My father-in-law opened my previously-naive eyes to this, the most perfect of movie theatre treats. When with The Husband I have to forgo the carcinogen-laden extra pumps of “butter flavor”, but that’s ok ’cause there’s enough salty-sweet in this bucket to last me through an epic 3-hour shoot-em-up flick.
Can’t ever go wrong with ice cream, ‘specially when it’s Jenis. I usually go for tried and true Salty Caramel, but this time I went with Sweet Corn Black Raspberry and Pumpkin Amaretti. And let me tell you, they did not disappoint.
The only regret I have with Pinkberry is that I’d been eating it so long without honey on top! It gets cold and freezes a bit when it hits the [original tart, always!] yogurt and becomes a perfectly chewy texture. Great bonus to all the fruit + nuts you can load up on!
So what about you? What are your favorite eats?
