sean and i had a wonderful weekend, visiting his family in charlotte, nc! we enjoyed many lovely home cooked meals, a trip to the farmer’s market, and eating out as the locals do!

our first night we ate al fresco at the rivers edge bar and grill at the u.s. national whitewater center. the outdoor surroundings were such a beautiful setting to have our dinner. i loved watching the canoers and kayakers paddling through rapids, and listening to the live band playing.

dinner at cabo fish taco was pretty exciting for me since i’m secretly obsessed with diner’s drive-in’s and dives, and they were featured on the show. see clip below.


i had the lemon grilled shrimp and blackened mahi-mahi tacos, both served in flour tortillas stuffed with cabbage, tomato, avocado, mixed cheeses, & finished with  cilantro sauce.

on our last night, we had yet another deilcious meal of grilled vegetables from the farmer’s market, chicken with chimichurri sauce, and the homemade jalapeno corn bread below. yumm!
