This week has been a week of endings and beginnings. Tuesday was the first day of Autumn and we are winding down the month of September. Today I am sharing two recipes from Gail O’Brien’s Book – Recipes from North Carolina’s Historic Restaurants. I had selected these to share with you earlier in the month of September and time passed by so fast and I am sharing them with you today.
The first page of recipes is from the Dan’l Boone Inn in Boone. It is a wonderful restaurant with food served family style and has been in business for over 50 years. Even though it is probably an hour away from where we live in Conover, we haven’t visited the area very often in recent years. However, it is the home of Appalachian State and has great restaurants and shops. It is a charming place to visit and I highly recommend eating at the Daniel Boone Inn. I wanted to share the apple recipe as it is a favorite for me this time of year. I think the cranberry relish recipe looks like a great addition to any meal and would be especially good for Thanksgiving.

The next page of recipes is from the Angus Barn in Raleigh, NC. I have never eaten there but it has such a great reputation and has been recommended to me if I should visit Raleigh. It is very rare to hear of a restaurant that is so good in a city in the eastern part of the state. By the way, Raleigh is the home of NC State, my favorite college team. I love that part of the state and it has beautiful rolling hills and great restaurants and festivals. I think the following recipes would be great for any special occasion. I did not realize the copy wasn’t so great until I started to post about it today. However, I think you can still read it. Here is a link to their website and they have been in business since 1960. http://www.angusbarn.com/
There are so many wonderful places to dine in North Carolina and there is such a variety of cuisines and settings for those wonderful experiences. I hope you are looking forward to a fun weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
