I simply cannot believe February is half over already! This is simply craziness and it seems no matter what I do I can’t seem to catch up on the blog entries, homework, and the never-ending lists of boring things that need to be done.
This post is way overdue. The day after Christmas BD and I traveled up north to a cold and snowy New England for a week. It’s become sort of a tradition for us, and one that we like. It’s nice to get away for the last week of the year, and I always love seeing my family. Some years we travel a lot to nearby cities like Boston and New York, or we take it easy and stay close to home. We had a long list of stuff we wanted to do this year but some reason we only accomplished a couple of them. Not surprisingly 99% of the to do list incorporated food we wanted to eat. I would have had a couple of more places to share with you, but we are really, really horrible at taking pictures. We were gone for over a week and other then the few pictures you see here, we took maybe ten photos. I joke that we need to hire someone to follow us around just so we can capture some priceless memories.
Back to business. The food really is so much better back home then it is in Tampa. Tampa doesn’t have awesome small diners or little family run restaurants the size of a shack that can crank out mad tasty food. Tampa has every chain imaginable – everywhere. I was smart enough to capture a photo of two foods I have blogged about before. And I savored every second of devouring them. I still have the few pounds I put on to prove it.
This has always been a tiny little establishment with no frills. It has since relocated since I started eating these donuts as a kid and I do think they taste a little bit better in the middle of summer rather than the cold, cold winter. In fact, I woke up at about 7am on my vacation to travel about 20 minutes to go pick up this dozen. We went with our three favorite: Cinnamon Crullers, Glazed, and Lemon filled.
