Harbinger of Spring

I just love the blooming Bradford Pear trees. They're a real sign to me that spring has sprung.

The cheese selection at The Fresh Market is outstanding. It's hard paying the premium prices - but I am happy to see most of my old French favorites. Lately, my husband and I have been staying away from this aisle though. We made a New Year's Resolution to lose a few pounds. But we can still treat ourselves to one of these tasty delights every now and again.

More Peppers!

To continue with the pepper theme, I found this lovely display of peppers at The Fresh Market. TFM is one of those gourmet grocery chains. I don't buy staple foods here, but it is a good place for cheeses, fish, meats and other things you can't find at The Kroger.

Sweet Peppers... Part II

Sweet Peppers really takes their theme quite seriously! Not only were there several neon pepper signs, there were also paintings of peppers and other pepper-related artwork. All of the chairs and booths were done in red upoholstry which, combined with the deep red walls, gave the place a really warm feel.

Chose promise, chose due...

As promised, I tested the Sweet Peppers Deli over the weekend. The menu is quite similar to McAllister's, the only thing missing is the veggie chili. They also have the same serving system - you order at the counter and they bring the food to your table.

Uli also made good on his promise and treated me to this veggie sandwich on ciabatta bread with a side of pasta salad. It was quite tasty - thanks again!

St Matthews United Methodist

I thought I'd post a night photo for a change. I like the modern look of this church with the slanty glass windows. If you'd like to learn more about this church, please visit their website.
