How far would you drive for lunch?
Today I had lunch about 45 miles from home.
It was so worth the drive.
We drove north towards Micanopy to Blue Highway - a pizzeria.
From the outside you would never guess how wonderful the food is.
You can see my friends Jan and Bill standing outside. They know the very best places to eat, see the most interesting things and are people who's company I always enjoy.
Inside it looks like a typical tavern. It was so crowded on a weekday for lunch that people even ate outside where the temperature was in the 40's. Just wait until you see the food and you will know you are someplace special.
Bill always orders the Antipasti Plate. The presentation is wonderful and everything is fresh and appealing.
Jan and I each had the Chicken Rustico Panini and the Tuscan Bean Salad. Take my word for it, it is out of this world. If it were closer I assure you I'd eat there at least once a week.
They serve the best pizza around. I'm making myself hungry just writing about this.
We were on our way to the Quillting Florida Natural II show in Gainesville. I was so impressed with the variety and depth of the work. If you stay tuned you'll see photos of the show in later posts.
On our way back home we made a short stop in Evinston at the post office/general store. It is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
Bill's Antipasti Plate is tonight's puzzle. Enjoy!
