Food Truck Adventure..The Wandering Moose

(logo from their website)


Fourth of July weekend was upon us.  Stephanie, Maggie and I decided to go check out a local fireworks venue.



And Happy Day they had food trucks.  It is always difficult to choose just one truck.  We looked at our options and decided to go with The Wandering Moose.  I love the logo.

We looked over the menu.....

We had to try the Smokey Bacon Mac N Cheese.  So good!  Yummy chunks of bacon all in a creamy mac and cheese sauce. Maggie loved it and licked the bowl clean.  I would most definitely order that again!

Stephanie ordered...
"The Moose Cubano

I managed to sneak in a taste when she was not looking...very good...:-)

I ordered the...
The Moose Club
Slow cooked brined chicken, sliced and piled on crisp Romaine lettuce and thick tomato, with melted provolone, our home-made bacon, and herb aioli."
The Wandering Moose

It was a very good sandwich.  Nice size piece of chicken with cheese, bacon and  fresh tomatoes and lettuce. 

Another great food truck experience in NC.  If you have the chance to try a food truck don't hesitate.  It really is a culinary adventure.
Happy Eating and Exploring Everyone!

A Visti to Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC

It has been a while since I have visited a new restaurant.  I did a google search and came up with Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC.  Sounded wonderful so I called Cindy and off we went on a restaurant adventure.  Here is a quote from their website.... "A refined take on traditional Southern cuisine. That's the essence of Rye Bar & Southern Kitchen, our onsite restaurant in the heart of Raleigh's vibrant downtown. Executive Chef Michael Rigot's seasonal menus feature the freshest, healthiest produce and meats, all from local North Carolina farms.

The restaurant itself is located in downtown Raleigh in Raleigh Marriott City Center. The Bar was lovely.  The night we were there it was packed.  Lively place to be. They brought this lovely platter to our table, they call i…

Winkler Bakery in Old Salem NC

One place Gale and I knew we had to visit was the bakery in Old Salem.  I have enjoyed the Moravian cookies over the years but everyone has told me I had to try the sugar cake.
Look at all the temptations....Yummy:-)


A bit of history....






The sugar cake was amazing.  We took it back to our room and enjoyed the yummy sweetness in front of the beautiful fireplace in our room.  We also shared a bottle of local wine.  What a lovely day:-)

Hiking The New Hope Overlook

I signed up for another Meetup group hike.  I never know what I am going to see on these hikes, I am always excited for the new adventure.  I grabbed my camera and headed toward Jordan Lake.  I will be quoting a site I signed up for AllTrails.com.  It's free.  If you are at all interested in area hiking trails you should check out the site.

"New Hope Overlook Blue Route is a 2.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Moncure, North Carolina that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash." AllTrails.com
Dogs are allowed on the trail. I did not take Brodie. The hikes are at a fast clip with this group so it may be difficult to drag him; literally along. Brodie and I go on 3-mile walks in our neighborhood. After about 3 miles he keeps looking at me as if to say "can we go home now?"  Ann was our fearless leade…
