coconut grilled peaches

Not exactly what I had in mind, but they blew canned peaches out of the water.

Father's Day buffet. Those lemon scones were AWESOME.

thai peanut stir-fry

Pasta: the staple and failsafe student standby. It was also free!

not dead. I promise!

So it's been a terribly busy semester hereabouts, which would explain the drastic reduction in blog posts. Also, I managed to destroy my digital camera on a canoeing trip with the boyfriend, so I'm hoping fervently that Christmas will yield a new camera, or at least a non-digital camera I can borrow.

In the meantime, though, I HAD to commemorate the cooking of my very first turkey, which my mother kindly sent to my roommates and I for the lean time at the end of the semester when none of us had money.

So I took the built-in webcam from my MacBook and took some pictures.

It has a FACE! Honest to goodness!

Isn't it pretty? It was definitely yummy.

As soon as I return home next week, I'm going into full DIY and cooking mode, so expect a lot more exciting things coming up a lot sooner!

Now, with a wine option like that (if it hadn't been the middle of the day...), plus a whalewatching business operating out of the joint (which we took advantage of before lunch), you'd think that would be enough to make this a pretty cool restaurant.

You'd be wrong. The decor was charming, the locale was great (way out in the middle of nowhere on a little island), there were boxes full of Trivial Pursuit cards to pass the time, and the service was as homey and friendly as could be. They even let the patrons use the piano in the dining room, and the sweetest little girl from one of the other tables played a bit while we were there. She was good, too.

Oh, and the food? The food was phenomenal. The menu had something for everyone (and there were 8 of us with very different palates) and I don't think anyone was disappointed.

The problem is? It was months ago, and I'm still thinking about that peanut butter pie...

Pie and a Song

She's my cherry pie

Cool drink of water

Such a sweet suprise

Tastes so good

Make a grown man cry

Sweet cherry pie

Oh yeah

She's my cherry pie

Put a smile on your face

Ten miles wide

Looks so good

Bring a tear to your eye

Sweet cherry pie

Sweet cherry pie


Swing it!

Yeah, so I'm not original. But who cares when there's pictures of cheery pie to ogle?
