#95 Brits and Storks

Very strange title … but accurate. That is how the day went.

Christina and Corey asked me not to make ANY plans for today.  They worked yesterday so they wanted today to be September 30th – extended. It definitely was.

The day was broken down into several surprise stops. I had no idea what we were going to be doing the entire day. All I was told … It will be a chill fun day.

Stop One: Brits Pub and Eatery

At first I thought we were stopping to have lunch at a Wendy’s as that is the first thing I saw. They started laughing and pointed out the quaint little British pud on the other side of the parking lot.

Mentioned only once by Corey, it was a cute little find with great food. We were happy to get the little table by the fireplace and to be treated so kindly by the staff. The food was great. I knew from the get go what I wanted to have.

Appetizers 

Crisps – Salted Potato Chips

Colcannon Balls – a sort of mashed potato balls served with a side of French mustard and Worcestershire sauce.

Welsh Rarebit – slices of toast topped with melted cheddar cheese, French mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.

Lunch

Bangers and Mash – British sausages with homemade mashed potatoes, brown gravy, peas, and carrots.

Dessert

Bread Pudding – homemade  with cinnamon, nutmeg, and raisins served with hot custard.

Yum. Definitely want to eat here again. Especially on a Sunday. Learned that was the only day they served roast beef and Yorkshire pudding!

Stop Two: Spirit Halloween (A Different One)

After lunch we had some time to kill before our next activity, so we decided to goof around at another Spirit Halloween location. Last time presidents and hats were involved. This time it was clowns. I scared myself.

Stop Three: Spring Hill 8

We went to see Storks! It was funnier and better than I expected. The ending was kind of emotional too, but very cute.

Stop Four: Their House

We stopped off at their house, where they surprised me with some pretty cool presents and some home made Tiramisu! It was great!

Stop Five: Goodwill 

Went to check out some cheap Halloween stuff. Ended up buying some much needed new flip flops.

Stop Six: My House

Ended off the night talking and relaxing on the couch before I headed to bed. Great day.
