On Saturday, we went to Chapel Hill with our daughter, and had lunch at The Weathervane, which is located adjacent to Southern Seasons, a premier specialty foods store. Below are some photos from the day. You'll be drooling......
Fancy desserts - with prices to match!
Specialty cheeses to whet your appetite!
Candy bars from all over the world.
Beautiful hand-painted glass trays to serve it all on.
Or maybe you prefer blue crabs.
At every turn, there are beautiful table settings, with ideas galore to please your guests! (if not your purse.)
Colorful crayon casseroles and polka-dotted mugs....
Portuguese porcelains with St. Patrick's Day decorations.
Tall mugs to remind you of your visit to Chapel Hill.
Gourmet jelly beans in every flavor imaginable! (Take that, Bertie Botts!)
Jams and jellies for your morning muffins!
Colorful purses to carry....
Rooster china, which I'm guessing Granny Annie and Angie will love.
The only thing I bought: dark chocolate and salt - my favorite combination! It was almost as good as chocolate bars together with hot, salty, buttered popcorn. There now; are you drooling? Or are you already surfeit?
At lunch, I forgot to photograph our food. I had a cup of chili and a half-sandwich of fried green tomatoes. It was served on the best rustic, whole-grain bread with some sort of aioli sauce. It was very tasty. You should try it sometime!
