A Week in Photos: August 5th

August 12, 2013

On Friday we packed our car with camping gear, hit the road and two hours later ended up in Mountain Rest, South Carolina. I loved everything about this weekend. It really hit the spot.

*

Dinner fixings the first night. Fried rice with bacon, carrots, green onions, kale, ginger, garlic & a sprinkle of cilantro mint herb salt, eaten while sitting beside a creek with a glass of wine.

The resident campsite snail.

We snacked all weekend on these freshly roasted peanuts we picked up at a little hole-in-the-wall grocery. I normally don’t feel one way or another about shelled peanuts, but dang these were sooo good! Freshly roasted is where’s it at.

*

On Saturday we hiked down to the Chattooga River. It’s a Wild and Scenic River which I think means it’s protected and will hopefully stay this way forever. It’s absolutely gorgeous, I felt like I was in A River Runs Through It.

We when got back on Sunday we made peach jam with the five pounds of peaches we got at that same peanut grocery.

*

Home made food souvenirs. Not too shabby for our first time canning.
