The best part about the end of Thanksgiving is the beginning of Christmas!!
Coming home from our holiday travels was still a bit sad. We had a fabulous time and I’m hoping Matt’s parents did too! We had warm-ish weather on Friday and a fun lunch in Wilmington before our drive home.
When we arrived, Matt got right back to his studies while I unpacked and started on the laundry. Around 5 though, we remembered that it was Saturday night! I brewed some simple syrup on the stove so we could make bourbon + orange bitters cocktails to sip on. And then we braved the cold and walked to Geer Street Garden for a date.
We just sat at the bar and ordered a few appetizers. I enjoyed a Pranqster, which ended up being a perfect Belgian!
I didn’t really know what I was in the mood for, so Matt chose the food: jalapeno cheddar hushpuppies,
fried chicken and arugula salad with hard boiled egg and parmesan,
and mac and cheese. All the southern foods complimented each other and really hit the spot. I loved all three items, and I’m going back for those hushpuppies.
Well, the winner is Brittany from Itty Bits of Balance, and she doesn’t like cranberry sauce! I’m not surprised:) Congrats Brittany!!!
I’m off to snuggle in my fresh flannel sheets. Night.
