Traveling Vegetarian: Mr. Foisie’s Pasties

On the long trek up to Crystal Mountain a couple months ago my Mom mentioned that she was in the mood for a pastie. For those not from the North, it’s like a meat pie with little veggies inside that usually comes in beef and chicken. It’s very common for hunting season.

Traveling Vegetarian: Buttermilk Kitchen

I woke up my first morning in Atlanta ready for adventure! Having done quite a bit of research before my trip I knew that my first meal was going to be brunch at Buttermilk Kitchen after attending Buckhead Church. (Service was FANTASTIC!) I knew I made the right choice when I could barely find parking, I pulled into their very small and tight spaced secondary lot and ended up getting out of my car to help someone who was trying to back out and leave. Perfect for my truck!
