We're taking a road trip down to Asheville, North Carolina to visit our son Frank. Needless to say, I am not a lover of the road trip, and we stop every 3 hours or so to take a break, walk around, discover something, and of course, have a meal or snack. There's not much halfway between where we live in New Jersey and Charlottesville, Virginia, our first stop for two nights, except for Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. We gave it a shot and were pleasantly surprised to find a very busy little Mexican restaurant right across the street from the court house. I took a photo of the fresh corn chips, guacamole and fresh, fresh salsa served to every diner before the meal. This little aperitivo was delicious, and probably all I needed to have for lunch. But, of course, I went ahead and ordered the chimichangas - and they were just to die for! Off to Monticello today and wine tasting at the Barboursville winery, with lunch at the Palladio restaurant connected to the winery! This winery is affiliated with the D'Albola winery in Tuscany - one of the many wineries we visited this fall!Ciao, bella!
Welcome to the Frog Hollow Farm blog! I've been blogging since January 2010 and have switched from Blogger to Word Press, but I'm back to Blogger because, for me, it's easier to use. My husband and I live on a little farm in Northwest New Jersey. We have some chickens and a very large vegetable garden with asparagus and raspberries, and rows and rows of sunflowers, snapdragons and zinnias. Traveling, entertaining, gardening, spending time with family, studying Italian, blogging and reading keep us busy and happy. With all of this going on, moving towards a simpler life seems almost impossible but it's definitely a daily goal.
