Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Fried Green Beans
Suzanne and I had a lovely day on Wednesday. We went out to what is known as the "Northern Neck" of Virginia in her little Miatta convertible. This is a rural country area with old homes and little summer cottages along tidal estuaries and the Chesapeake.
We stopped for lunch and some vintage shopping, where I got the "lawyer's case" for my office. The restaurant is in the old Richardson's Drug Store. I had lobster bisque and a salad, but Suzanne got kinda cra cra and ordered FRIED GREEN BEANS.
I was intrigued, especially when she pointed out that onion rings aren't so very different. These were truly delicious, with a spicy batter on them and more of a snap than onion rings. How do I know? She shared.
