My obsession with things North Carolinian grows as the winter season deepens. I couldn't believe that yesterday's dunked plane was headed there!
I have scoured real estate ads, looking for coastal homes in NC that are under $100K. Not that we're going to buy one, mind you. I just want to know that they're there. (One of them is even on the Outer Banks... bet it's been stripped down to the studs or something.)
Soon I will begin my spreadsheet. Every year I put one together, of the menus and ingredients necesssary for our May trip. I get to peruse cookbooks, cooking magazines, and online recipe databases. I get to choose which 12 to 16 recipes sound the yummiest (and easiest).
I also get to pack. I truly adore the minutiae.
