Tasty Tuesday Travels

Monticello, Mt. Vernon, and Williamsburg.  Ham, and peanuts.  They like things salty in Virginia!  I knew about the ham, but I didn’t know that Virginia is also famous for its peanuts.  Smile

Must start the day off right, with a nice fine Virginia wine.  Smile

Oysters Rockefeller, yum!  I had these once.  Guy took me on a date – in the pre-Darc days of course! – and insisted I have a surf and turf meal.  He ordered these for me.  I was sure I’d hate them, not being a seafood fan then, but I ended up loving them.

Virginia cured ham!  Is there any finer ham on the planet?

Here’s one blogger’s take on a gratin recipe, using Virginia ingredients.  Doesn’t it look so tasty?

I love Virginia.  I want to live there.  Perfect blend of north and south, elegant and country at the same time.  And the Blue Ridge Mountains are so beautiful, I want them in my view all the time.  We spent a few days there a few years ago, and I actually cried when we left.  It felt like leaving home.  Maybe one day I’ll get to go back.  Smile
