This Week My Life Not Is In The Kitchen

April 14, 2010

Tagging along on a business trip to Pensacola this week has kept me out of the kitchen but not away from good food!  The Fish House, where the World Famous Grits a Ya Ya are always good, especially when you can enjoy them sitting out by the water after a long road trip, was worth two visits.  The second time around I couldn’t pass up the featured Veal and Scallops with Fettucine Carbonara.

We also enjoyed a lovely evening dining al fresco at Tre Fratelli, where a garlicky pesto tossed with fettucine and a glass of chardonnay really hit the spot.Lunches included a sub from Publix, even better than usual because I ate it while sitting on a gorgeous stretch of white sandy beach on a perfectly gorgeous Monday afternoon.Another lunch was at Hub Stacey’s, dining outdoors on a tasty shrimp salad wrapped in a big soft pita, and fabulous because I had great company.

In my roaming around town with nothing but time, I came across  Distinctive Kitchens.  I wish I’d gotten a photo of their very cool vintage kitchen window display but I stopped in to browse and came out with a few new gadgets and a couple of bottles of wine.

Now we’re moving on to our next stop and looking forward to dinner with some pretty terrific friends tonight and a stop at my favorite produce stand on the way home to stock up on fresh goodies to get me back to Our Life In The Kitchen.

Oh, you’re so lucky. I’ve always wanted to make a “feet on the sand” photo shot. I’m so glad you two are having so much fun. He is a very handsome man!
