Indoor Fun For a Rainy Day With Your Mate

So it’s going to  rain all week long and you’re wanting to do some fun things with your sweetie, but it’ll have to be indoors. No problem, here is our top indoor activities for spending some quality time with your mate. 5. To Be Or Not To Be Find a great Bestseller or grab an old classic and read out loud to one another under a soft warm blanket and while sipping some hot cocoa!

You can even get creative and make up your own happy ending without looking at any of the pages. To Be Continued… 4. Start A Fight Ok, not a real fight. But a fluffy, feather flying, gut giggling pillow fight, of course. Get your adrenaline pumping and put on a great love battle with pillows and stuffed animals flying over the room. Just be sure not to knock over the lamp…. unless things get romantically steamy and intense during your kiss and make-up session. 3.

The Pressed Watermelon Salad had a very unique flavor.  It was topped with Corn Bread Panzanella and on top of the cold fresh lettuce were peeled Bouchard Farms Tomatoes, Cerignol Olive Vinaigrette, and New Herbs.  If you like mushrooms, you should try the Warm Mushroom Salad with grilled Radicchio, House made Beef Jerky, Semolina Streusel, topped with Tangy Pimento Buttermilk Dressing. For appetizers my friends and I shared the Sugarcane Roasted Quail Breasts with house made Pancetta, bread and butter onions, griddled Brioche, Tallegio, and Agrodolce, which was something I had never tried, but It tasted amazing. The Quail Breasts were seared and seasoned to perfection, and very succulent. It’s a perfect dish for sharing and maybe feeding your date.  We also shared the Pimento Cheese, a creamy Sharp White Cheddar spread on a crispy wafer stacked between Fried Green Tomatoes and Crushed Plant. The City Strawberry Jam made this appetizer one of my favorites. White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails knows a thing or two about frying a bird.  For dinner I recommend the Caramel Fried Chicken which has Pickled Vegetables, their perfect Pan Gravy, and a side...
