A Bit of August at Random

First up: Tastebuds American Bistro currently features fresh roasted local figs as their small plate special. After experiencing some fresh fig awesomeness last year, we look forward to this seasonal delight. Freakin' fantastic with goat cheese.

Ault's Family Farm raised some summertime turkeys this year. How wonderful is that? Smoked turkey wonderful. Yum!

Smoked Turkey

We shared this deliciousness with some friends and sipped on our now-official summertime cocktail for 2012: a pjpink!  A pjpink consists of 1 oz (or more depending on your mood) of bourbon (Wild Turkey 101, preferably); 1/2 oz of Campari, add a few ice cubes, and top off with 4-6 ounces of sparkling lemonade (Sanpellegrino limonata, preferably). The cocktail turns a wonderful shade of pink, is not too sweet, and tastes oh-so-refreshing.

My oldest nephew started college this weekend. The night before he left we took him, his girlfriend, mom, and dad to Aziza's on Main. Best pizza they ever had. Thanks Aziza's for making this last night before the big leap into adulthood very special.

Finally tried Dixie Chicken. Great-tasting fried chicken. Loved the homemade sides - mashed potatoes are real, including the peel, and green beans were cooked with ham. A request - list your hours of operation on your web site. We tried to go earlier in the year, but discovered you were not open on Sunday - wasted time and gas.
