Eat Local on the Road

After having to postpone our yearly trip in August
due to family obligations,
our vacation got underway on Friday.
We're visiting family for a couple of weeks
in North Carolina, our favorite destination
and hopefully soon,
our new home.

Road trips are so much fun.
I remember when we were kids
we used to have to actually talk to our parents,
as there were no DVD players, video games or Ipods.
It's a great way to make connections as a family.
Even though it drives your kids a little crazy.

One of our first adventures
was to hit the farmer's market in Davidson, NC.

This charming lil' town's market 
boasts an impressive variety of produce,
baked goods and grass-fed beef and poultry.

These glorious shitakes were picked up to be added
to our pizza dinner.

The berg is picturesque,
especially with the added beauty of fall foliage.

Downtown hosts a bevy of shops and eateries.
What a wonderful way to spend a weekend morning.
Sister and I hope to make it back here
on our own to stroll and grab a bite.

We made a visit to the library too
and picked up 5 books for a dollar at their used book sale.
What a perfect start to new family memories.

On to the next venture!


  1. That looks like a neat Farmer's Market! And that is great that you all still try to eat local on a trip, that can be hard to do sometimes.

    1. It was small and very friendly. We don't do fast food anyway, so it's not that hard.

  2. Looks like a fun (and pretty!) road trip so far. Enjoy!

  3. Those shiitakes look so yummy! I bet they were great on pizza. Have fun!
