Hello from Charlotte, North Carolina! I’m spending a week visiting friends and staying with Sarah.
Check out the fun books she got me!!
Two cute cookbooks—one for cakes and one for pies. I already have my eye on the Banana Toffee Cheesecake to make. She got me a hilarious book of snarky comments from someecards.com. You can even rip out the cards and mail them as postcards. One of the funny ones is the title of my blog post.
Tonight, we had dinner at Bask on Seaboard. This restaurant was new to me and a great suggestion of Sarah’s. I loved the look of the restaurant.
The restaurant wasn’t busy at all. It makes me nervous when a restaurant is dead. I tend to get the worst service then since the wait staff seems to not care or get bored. But our waitress was awesome! She gave a few suggestions and I went with the sweet burger and sauteed vegetables. Sarah and I split a side of macaroni and cheese since I heard it was the bee’s knees.
The sweet burger was very moist. I couldn’t taste the nutmeg cinnamon that made it “sweet”. But I did enjoy the apricot aioli sauce and the brie.
The macaroni and cheese though…..oh.my.goodness.delicious. Corkscrew pasta mixed with grueyere, goat cheese, queso blanco, and white American cheese. Soooooooooooooooo creamy and yum yum yum!
I was sure to save room for dessert though! I actually decided I was getting the Brownie Blondie with Dirty Girl Scout Ice Cream before I even looked at the entrees. How can you not get that???
I’m not going to lie. Sarah ate about 1/8 of this dessert and I devoured 7/8 of the bad boy. Hey, I’m on vaycay! The warm blondie hit the spot. The “Girl Scout” ice cream just tasted like chocolate ice cream though. I couldn’t taste any mint. Although, maybe my Sam Adams Summer Ale had something to do with my altered taste buds. 🙂
Good night, friends!!
