Sunday was full of friends, frights and forgetaboutits!
Our friends Liz (The evil one) and Brian came down to Charlotte to visit – we had brunch planned at our favorite restaurant in Uptown Charlotte – Halcyon Flavors from the Earth – a sister restaurant to Fern in Plaza Midwood. It’s a farm to table restaurant that has a changing menu each season… I love this place! The restaurant is walking distance from my house and my work and has the most incredible fresh food – That I trust. The chef is always happy to honor my special requests whenever I visit. I have a habit of ordering off the menu – combining dishes or getting things on the side or other modifications. It’s nice when a restaurant is super accommodating and doesn’t give you a hard time about this.
This was a big eating out weekend – twice is a LOT for us! Especially two meals out back to back… It was nice, however, to get out of the kitchen and just enjoy the freedom to choose whatever you wanted and no dishes to clean up! Luckily I have the sweetest husband in the whole world that cleans up the kitchen after I destroy it cooking. Thank you honey!
…. As soon as we sat down at what has to be the best patio in Uptown – Liz surprised me with one of my favorite all time desserts from Bouchon Bakery in NYC! They are called “Forgetabouits” – AMAZING little chocolate dipped sea salt carmel filled crispy cookies. I immediately took a bite. Duh.
