Sorry it’s been a while…….I’ve been a bit distracted with this…..
Blue Ridge Parkway driving with my girls, mom, brother & his wife near Waynesville, NC
Hiking to Devil’s Courthouse for an amazing view 5,720 feet up.
Checking out the Farmer’s Market in downtown Sylva, NC. The historic Jackson County Courthouse is in the background. The girls climbed all 107 steps later that day.
and so much more! My new camera seems to only take great food shots. Every other setting turns out blurry, so I’ve been taking pictures via my mom’s camera & my daughter’s camera. My sister in law has a new camera and let me upload her memory card as well. But for me…..as great as all that was, it is still a bummer since that means looking back I missed a lot of great landscape opportunities and other pics I see that I wasn’t able to take.
We cruised into Winston-Salem, NC yesterday afternoon. I consider this “home” as I moved here at 10 yrs of age and lived here until I went away in the Navy at age 19. I haven’t been here in almost 3 yrs so it’s exciting to be “back home” visiting friends, family and the old sights. We’re staying with friends, and were welcomed home with a SOUP FEST last night. Four delicious kinds of homemade soups. YUMMY!!!
Last night I sampled the loaded baked potato, Sante Fe & ham lentil. All were so good, but for me the potato won out. Dessert was brownies and ice cream! I love a good fudgy brownie!!
Foodwise, I’ve been having amazing eats!! I brought a cooler with REAL FOOD. It’s been so nice eating what I am in the mood for without having to get to the store. I also brought homemade muffins and cookies. I have a couple restaurants I want to blog about when I get a chance. As always so much to share and so little time.
Last bit of EXCITING NEWS: I am now a part of FOODIE BLOGROLL!! I had no idea the exposure this would give my little old food blog! Since Monday night I have been visited from all over the world…probably about 200 hits so far! Many states in the U.S., but also countries like Malaysia, United Kingdom, Italy, Denmark, Singapore, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Poland, Romania, South Africa, Kuwait and India. These are only countries listed in the last 100 visits.
Some new blogger comments, and I can’t wait to take the time to check out their blogs! So I’d love to hear from more of you that have been checking out Creative Kitchen, that way I can “meet” you and check your blog out too!Not sure if I’ll get another post up while on vacation, but I’ll be back in town late Saturday night. We’ve been having a blast, and my 20 month old toddler has been a very good traveler! Yay! That means I’ve also been getting sleep at night.
