Next Saturday is The Peach Truck's (a local Nashville favorite) last shipment of peaches. All summer we have enjoyed fresh gorgeous peaches from The Peach Truck's stands all around town. Now as school starts back, saying goodbye to the peaches is just another reminder that summer is quickly coming to a close.
Last weekend my girlfriends and I went to Josephine for a girls night and we had the most amazing meal. We ordered several different things on the menu to share and I think the Zucchini and Squash Ribbon Salad was unanimously our favorite dish. It inspired me to go home and make my own version!
I'm so excited for the weekend: The Farmer's Market, dinner with friends and family in from out of town! Here's my favorite finds this Friday.
Does anyone remember the restaurant Radius 10 that used to be on McGavock Street in Nashville? It closed in 2008 but I still think about their fish tacos. Really. They were so good and I have never had fish tacos quite as good as theirs ... until now!
It's been a little while since I've posted my Friday faves ... we've been traveling a bit and I've gotten a little off track. I'm back and totally inspired by the Spring that feels like it's ALMOST here. My tulips and daffodils are blooming and Easter is just around the corner. It makes me crave color and light and fresh meals that we can enjoy on the patio.
Here's what I'm loving this week!
East Nashville has become one of Music City's trendiest neighborhoods. Growing up in the Nashville area, I don't ever remember heading over the river into East Nashville and even now when I go I am still unaware of connecting streets. There are a handful of local businesses there now though that are definitely worth the drive. Here are a couple of my absolute favorite East Nashville haunts.
Macaroons are as pretty as they are sweet. I have been looking for years for the perfect ones made here in Nashville with little to no success. FINALLY they have arrived! The Painted Cupcake in Green Hills has started making the most delicious and delightfully beautiful macaroons. Their macaroon baker, Drue Madow, makes them perfectly fluffy with a crisp outer shell and a soft chewy interior (just as it should be). Her flavors change all the time and I still can't decide which is my favorite!
