Hey there. What've you been up to? Fall decorations have been up for a while at home (although in my mind—I’ve got 1 foot stuck in summer and 1 foot in fall- just hard to give up sandals).
p.s. thanks to those of you who entered the Haunted House giveaway. Congrats Veronica on winning and tickets are in the mail.
Here’s another find/faves round up. Happy weekend to you. –A.
I attended this year’s Rocky Ripple Festival (my kind of festival-- not too big, just the right sized crowd) and afterwards some of my family stopped by a friend of my aunt Jean’s & sat out on the deck which overlooks the White River (amazing, gorgeous view)…I could’ve hung out there all afternoon. So peaceful.
I’ve never owned a classic car (both of my parents did—back in the day) and it’s on my list. I snapped a photo of this car I saw in Carmel. Have you owned a classic car?
Broad Ripple Chip Co.
I consider it my duty to try every kind of potato chip out there (kidding- well sort of). These chips are some of the tastiest I’ve tried recently. They’re not too thin, but not thick and just the right amount of seasoning and crisp. They’re ideal on their own as an appetizer with a glass of wine and even better with a homemade dip. Around $3.75 a bag. You can find them at Moody's Butcher Shop in Zionsville, 11145 N. Michigan Rd., (Weston Pointe Shoppes), (317) 873-1800. Check the web site for other location in Avon.
Good fries (& homemade ones, especially) are hard to find. I recently stopped at Petit Chou in Carmel for an early brunch and was so happy to learn that you can order just a cup of their pommes frites with dijonnaise. It’s just the right amount and you can even share a few (if you're feeling generous). Petit Chou, 14390 Clay Terrace Boulevard, Suite No. 150, (Clay Terrace), (317) 566-0765). Check the web site for other location (Broad Ripple).
Thai food ranks high on my food list (maybe from the days when I lived close to a Thai restaurant in Louisville) Anyway- I dig any kind of curry dish (red and green curries are faves) so was psyched to see a red curry with chicken dish on Scribble’s menu. I decided to go for it and get a bit more hot sauce. Bring on the heat! This dish was comforting—spicy (with a few extra kicks) and just what I was looking for. Around $9 (served on top of rice). Check Scribble's site for updates on locations.
I mention WB Pizza here on the blog a lot and I’m so glad my friends Jenn and Jim told me about WB Pizza a handful of years ago. While their thin crust pizza is a regular go-to, I especially enjoy their homemade cheesecakes. Not overly rich—the pumpkin is just right to get into the fall spirit!. Available by slice (menu changes daily) or you can special order for birthdays, holidays (ahem, Thanksgiving). WB Pizza, 2290 W. 86th St., Indy, (317) 471-8888 (new location). Check the site for their original location and more info.
