We’ve been doing a fair amount of traveling this past month, so I made it a point to have an open calendar this past weekend. I’ve just finished a big textile order and it was nice to take a minute to catch my breath and work on some handpainted notebooks to drop off at citizen supply. They were really fun and relaxing to make after being in production mode lately.
Saturday night I finally had the chance to check out BettleCat in Inman Quarter and everything was delicious! I had an early bird dinner date with my gal pal and we hoped around to AMER and Friti after.
As per usual with Ford Fry restaurants the place was super cute inside.
We started the meal with cocktails (Singapore Sling for me) and ordered a lot of share plates. The crudo section of the menu was at the top of my list, and the cabbage crab salad, hamachi, cobia chips and beef tartare were all favorites.
Next, we had oysters and a bottle of champagne as dessert, but to our surprise, the staff sent out an amazing coconut pie that I keep thinking about, and will be back for. We got there super early (granny style) and had no problem scoring a seat in the dining area upstairs. Can’t wait to go back!
Sunday we took it easy and had family over for homemade pizzas on the Big Green Egg. We are slowly using this big guy more and more, and the BGE really knows how to cook a pizza! The crust gets nice and crisp and has great flavor coming off the grill. We made 3 pizzas total, but this heirloom tomato, mozzarella, and prosciutto was the prettiest of them all.
Traveling is amazing, but I do love a good easy going weekend at home! This summer is absolutely flying by!
