eating in a bank vault

Have you ever eaten in a unique, random place?  I love when I find those restaurants where I walk in and it's totally not what I expected.  On our trip to New Hampshire, we ventured into a little town called Gorham.  We were tired and hungry.  We found a newly opened restaurant/pub called SAALT   We walked in and saw happy people and happy kids; people relaxing on couches, sitting at a bar, and eating at tall tables.  The waitress walked up to us and said, "We have a table available in the corner or in the vault."  My husband and I looked at each other and said, "We'll take the vault!"  
Eating in the old bank vault after a loooong day!
So, that brings me to thinking about FOOD!  If you are looking for a great cookbook, I recommend Two Sisters and The Silver Spoon
 I am always using this cookbook!  I love it!  About the author, Kathy~Besides being an extremely talented cook, Kathy is a member of my church, head of the woman's group at church, a beautiful decorator, a retired teacher, and loves PINK! Her sister is just as talented!  I love that we are able to share decorating thoughts with each other.  She is such a special person.   
Also, what is so great about this book is that some of the proceeds are donated to support the Melanoma Research Fund to support the research of Dr. Michael B. Atkins of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. 
Hopefully, you can pick one of these cookbooks up for yourself, or someone you love.  It's guaranteed not to tarnish your image! ;)Alyssa

  1. I think I might have seen that restaurant on the Food Network... so cool!

  2. The Herbal Husband and I ate in a stable, but not just any stable. It was at Biltmore! Ritzy, ditzy! Not as good as a bank vault! Getting Will ready for his career! Cool music, Alyssa! Dean Martin! Who's knew or you just knew that was my vintage! Ha! Ha!

  3. i'm so honored you somehow found me, and of course, i'm following you back. look forward to "getting to know you", or whatever it is we do thru the internets!

  4. Wow!! eating in a bank vault looks like a unique experience. I don't know how much eating I would get done...I would be to busy snooping around for $100 bills that might of been left behind.

  5. I love cookbooks. I'll have to see if it's on Amazon. Thanks!
