I had the most amazing Saturday. It started with a glorious run (many fun pictures taken with picplz which I am now obsessed with) and ended with pumpkin beer.
First, we headed to The Cheese Shop on Park in Winter Park. We had a gift card from Christmas to spend.
If you love cheese and wine, I highly recommend The Cheese Shop. Not only are they the nicest people, they are super knowledgeable and the cheese is out of this world. Plus, they carry lots of great local products (jams, salad dressing, and hot sauces) plus gourmet honey and crackers.
We bought many different types of cheese but the one I am most excited about is Pecorino with truffles. I have an idea for a pasta dish that this cheese will taste amazing grated over.
We walked around the lovely Park Avenue for awhile. Admiring the sites and the cute storefronts.
Loved this display in the park for breast cancer awareness.
We finally made it to Sassafras Sweet Shoppe. J is literally a candy nut (for example, he might be the sole person in Polk County who buys out the Darrell Lea Licorice every week at Target.)
Such a cute store! Great mix of vintage candy and local products. We had a lot of fun looking around. Also, buying one item just for laughs. (J may have actually tried this but I will not be.)
Dinner time and I finally got to eat at Shipyard Emporium.
We started with the trio of dips They were Buffalo Chicken, Roasted Pablano Artichoke Dip, and White Bean Hummus. Each one was delicious but the Buffalo Chicken was the most unique (hello real pieces of chicken.)
I had the BLT Flatbread. The sundried tomato combined with the bacon was smoky awesomeness.
J had the Lobster Flat Bread which he did not like as much. He felt the tarragon was overwhelming.
The beer menu was really cool and the desserts looked delicious. We will definitely be coming back to eat here again.
Are you doing anything fun for the holiday weekend?
Agree or disagree, pumpkin beer is the best beer ever?
