Happy Monday! We had a busy weekend, full of lots of great food (baby M was very happy!) The weather was warmer than what I'm used to for Fall -- high 80's -- but I'll take that over snow. On Friday H and I went on a dinner date to Tabbuli -- a downtown Mediterranean restaurant. We shared the Tabbuli Mediterranean dip which had a little bit of everything (hummus, feta, jerusalem salad, and pita bread) -- it was soo good. I ordered the gyro and fries for dinner -- it was also delicious, even though the fries were a crazy salty.
On Saturday we went to the gym for a quick workout, good thing because afterwards we went on a 2 1/2 hour culinary tour. We walked all around downtown Charleston and sampled a LOT of Southern food -- including: sweet tea, stone ground grits and sweet potato cake, Charleston benne wafers, hushpuppies (with praline butter), fried green tomatoes, Charleston red rice with sausage, lowcountry barbecue, cheese biscuit, collard greens and southern pralines, fudge, and white chocolate turtles. In the beginning of the tour I didn't think we'd get a lot to eat. um.... wrong. I was stuffed. There was absolutely no need to have dinner after 2+ hours of sampling food.
On Sunday we took it easy and checked out Second Sunday on King Street. Every second Sunday of the month the city shuts down car traffic on King street for pedestrians. It makes downtown Charleston feel very European with outdoor seating and tons of people walking around. I can't wait to go again next month! We also got pumpkins -- but didn't get around to carving them yet.
oh and we also returned our cable box. We don't watch 90% of our cable channels so we thought it would be a good idea to try the antenna/Netflix streaming route for a while. I'll let you know how that turns out -- thankfully most of my favorite shows are on network TV (I'll just have to adjust to life without a DVR).
How was your weekend?
