It was a good food, bad diet weekend. Not only were there too many tempting carbs and sweets at Graves Mountain Lodge, but the Knight came home with cupcakes to share from the first birthday party we missed. I’m sure they were even cuter before they rode around the countryside… The birthday girl’s mama made those all by herself. I’m impressed!
And my HTC EVO takes great photos in natural light, not so much inside. Oh well. Maybe the iPhone will be better?
Sunday, we had a little League errand to run, so we had lunch at one of our favorite hole in the wall places. Nellysford is tiny anyway, but it’s very easy to miss the Blue Ridge Pig. That’s their sign in front of the building, borrowed from their Facebook account. They’re known for their barbeque, but the Knight craves their turkey-ham-cheese croissant, and all of our employees know that you don’t work ANYWHERE in the area without bringing yours truly a pint of their dill potato salad. Le sigh. It’s not a creamy dill sauce either; it’s oil-based, and if I could find a recipe, I’d be hard-pressed to eat anything else for a very long time. (There is a photo of it on their Facebook page, but it’s tiny and even if we had smell-o-vision, you’d miss the incredible flavor of the dill, potato, onion, celery dish.)
You know, I should submit Strawberry and his shop to Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. It’s truly a TINY place, but big on quality and taste!
Is there a stand-out “dive” in your world?
