Just back from Atlanta, Georgia where the weather was nearly as wintery as it is here in Vermont this week.  Staying with friends while I was there, I actually slept in my coat.  It was that cold.

But there was no snow, which made it better than home just now.  And the friends I stayed with gave me the warmest of welcomes, so I can’t complain at all. I spent the days trying out new restaurants and exploring, getting a long overdue fix of southern city life.

One of my happiest finds was Butter & Cream, an independent ice creamery in Decatur, GA.  The lemon custard and salted caramel were dreamy.  And a latte and slice of Fresh Strawberry Galette at The Little Tart Bakeshop, just recently opened at the Krog Street Market, was the perfect breakfast for this non-breakfast eater.
