… a friend asked for this recipe today…

… she was over for pulled BBQ beef sandwiches one night and wanted the recipe… this really is the best recipe…  be sure to get the Hawaiian roll hamburger buns and an awesome BBQ sauce for the perfect sandwich… add potato salad, deviled eggs, baked beans… perfect!

… look what I found at Magpie today!

Boundary Tree bottled beer (yes, beer not wine) from Blackberry Farm in Tennessee!!!  Blackberry Farm is the most heavenly place to get away in the mountains of East Tennessee… everything they do is wonderful, so this beer has to be perfect! (you can buy this to-go at Magpie)

365 Things to Do in Brevard – #2

Duck in to Bracken Mountain Bakery (42 S Broad Street – 828.883.4034) and order one of their nothing-better-in-the-world flakey croissants…. my suggestion: ask them to heat it up for you and then slather on the butter (yep, lots of butter and it will be very messy, but nothing better with a hot coffee on the side)… ;-)

365 Things to Do in Brevard – #1

Stop by Magpie Meat & Three in the Lumberyard Arts District (170 King Street – 828.877.3773) to dig into some of the best comfort food in Brevard. For a little something different, eat outside on the patio garden and play corn hole.  Some of my favorites: deviled eggs, corn fritters. :-)

I seem to be the last in town to hear the hubbub about the possibility of cutting down our town Christmas tree…

… I don’t know all the details, but my prediction is it won’t be cut down in the end… forever the optimist ;-)  seriously, I just can’t fathom that happening…
