My husband and I busted out for the day again. We’re really getting used to being people again separate from being parents. We hit the Inner Harbor, Fell’s Point, then wound our way back towards Harrisburg the back way going through towns we’ve never been through before, and did some things around here then made sure we were home after the boys were in bed.
I could have taken more pictures. It was a gorgeous day, but it was nice to just be out enjoying the day. I didn’t take the big camera. All I had was my cell phone in my pocket.
After our delicious and very reasonably priced burgers at Hungry Andy’s ($7.30 for 1/4lb burger, fries, and canned drink), we headed back towards the Inner Harbor. We stopped at Whole Foods where I got whole nutmeg. We also stopped at Miss Shirley’s for drinks and a snack, but there were no snacks to be had. The pancakes were $10.99. Every plate we saw being bussed off the empty tables had food on it. The portions were huge, but there’s also a $3 plate sharing fee. We thought it was pretentious, but that’s our opinion. The opinion of Baltimore is that it’s one of the best breakfasts/brunches. They had outdoor tables, but it was a 25 minute wait. I’m glad now we only waited 5 minutes for the crappy inside table we got.
Then we headed back to the car. I was done. My fibro was flaring. I thought I’d nap on the way home, but it was way too entertaining. Maryland drivers have this thing where they slow down to 60 MPH on the hills on the interstate. I guess they don’t use cruise control. Then we got off the interstate and took some back roads to kill time. In Hanover, PA, the population seemed adverse to wearing shirts.
Once we got back into the Harrisburg area, we weren’t sure what to do with ourselves, so we went bra shopping. I need to find a strapless one for the formal event we have coming up. No luck finding one, but we killed 45 minutes. Then we browsed Pier one and saw a great frog to go with our mushrooms in front of our house.
Then we headed off in search of food. We started at Appalachian Brewing Company for a draft beer (for the husband), a draft rootbeer (for me) and a cup of the cheddar ale soup.
Then we decided to move on to JoJo’s Pizza in Mechanicsburg for our main course. Supposedly the best pizza in Mechanicsburg, and boasting a gluten free option, we had pretty high expectations. Meh. Our pizza was under done. It tastes the same as Marcello’s, so no reason to drive to the next town for what we can get right around the corner. Nice to have a GF option when my dad and stepmom visit though.
