New Food Choice on the Cape

Usually when I think of the Cape, I think fresh seafood. Images of battered clams (strips only) and tender pieces of lobster come to mind.  But never would I think to come here and go to a British Pub for dinner. Now everyone knows that I LOVE anything British.  So why have I never ventured to the local British Pub? Because I never associated British food with the Cape.  But my Uncle suggested that we try it tonight and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised.  The deep red walls, pictures of Shakespeare and typical pub tables were very inviting and the service was really good. The menu had an eclectic selection such as: coconut encrusted chicken, pizza and traditional pub fare.  I went for the traditional British food (when in Rome... )  and ordered a Chicken and Leek pasty (same as the "a" in cat) with cheddar mashed potatoes and seasonal veggies (which were asparagus (not my fav)).   The potatoes were very tasty as well as the pasty.  I would highly recommend making a stop, located across from Falmouth Heights Beach.  And then when you are done, head over to Smitty's for some Peach or Cape Cod Crunch ice cream.

Check out the cute dishes (the rim of the dinner plate was painted with the Union Jack).  Sadly, they are not for sale (found out that I wasn't the only one to ask this question).

Ahhh, I'm Going Home.....

Ahhh, to be back at home.  Even though I've lived in California longer than I lived in Massachusetts, this is where I feel at home.  Especially here on the Cape (or Cape Cod).  We got in VERY late last night and needed to throw the windows open to let some cool air into the house.  Out here, people have storm windows that you put down during the winter.  It may be only on older houses, not sure about newer ones.  But anyway, with those suckers closed, it's like an oven in the house.  Then with the anticipation of running errands that go along with opening a summer cottage, I'm beat.  But I wanted to share a few pictures I took while on the flight.

and a song to go with all this....

At Old Cape Cod

Tomorrow, I'm heading to one of my favorite places.  
(I also won second prize for this photo; check it out in Cape Cod Life magazine.)

And if all goes well, I'll have time to blog while I'm there.

Rubber Biscuit!

I am all thrown off by my recent move.  I've taken the plunge and moved in with my boyfriend.  It was quite sudden and I have to say, one of the best decisions that I've made.  I've never felt so right about something and I'm so happy that I made this move.  Now, if we can just finish the remodeling... but that another story.  Today, I'm going to post some songs that have been in my head.  Don't ask why these songs popped in; just go with it :)  Enjoy!

Other Blogs

Ugh!!  It's been very hectic these last few weeks and I'm so sorry I haven't posted anything.  I had to let something go and it ended up being this.  So much has been going on with work and personal life. Though I did not make it a priority to blog I still managed to check out other blogs in the mean time.  I love looking at these blogs before I go to bed.  Check them out sometime and send me ones that you would climb the highest mountain just to get reception to check out a blog.   Enjoy!

These are just the photo ones.
For beautiful information...
