After a surprise trip to The Umstead Spa in Cary for a manicure, the hubby surprised me with lunch at Foster's Market. Foster's Market is very special to us. It's where he first took me out to eat one Sunday for brunch and it's the same place that catered our rehearsal dinner. It's such a unique, vintage, earthy place. It's really unlike any other restaurant I've ever been to and the food is just incredible. Even BETTER than homemade (if that's possible).
M and I always order two different entrees and share. We ordered the Herbie Bird Wrap, a favorite from our dating days.
And for our second entree choice we picked one of their 1 pound plate options and chose their chicken salad (unbelievably delicious, and I don't even like chicken salad!), potato salad, and fruit salad (apparently salad was the theme of this one. Ironic that none of it was actually traditional greens "salad"?).
The food was delightful, but the company was even more delightful.
I think I still have a crush.
Isn't he just dashing? I could gush all day.
Thank you, Sara Foster, for making your homemade recipes available to the crowds of hungry folks in Durham and Chapel Hill (and those of us who live in Raleigh/Cary and are hungry enough for Sara Foster's cooking that we're more than willing to drive).
And dessert, oh sweet dessert. We chose one of Foster's famous coconut macaroons. Luckily, my MIL & FIL gave me the Foster's Market Cookbook for my birthday so I will soon be whipping up many Foster's Market recipes at home.
More anniversary pictures and memories to come...
...In the meantime...what do you think of our anniversary lunch- does the food look yummy to you? Have you ever been to Foster's Market or a place like it?
