This past weekend the wonderful in-laws were in town, a whirlwind trip filled with great food, lots of laughter and talking about the year ahead with hubs now having a new job – there are lots of new changes here!
Saturday afternoon, my mother-in-law and I went for afternoon tea which was delightful. I think delightful is really an appropriate word for my first ever “proper” tea experience. If you live in/near Annapolis and are ever wondering what to do with visitors? I highly suggest the afternoon tea at Reynolds Tavern. The tea selection is amazing, the food was quite delicious. Not to mention they have a few different options for platters (or whatever you want to call it) – we got one the smaller options, they also have Colonial High Tea that’s a four course meal, and a champagne tea among a few others.
We walked around downtown after, and then headed to church finishing off the night at Galway Bay over off of Maryland Avenue (which, is littered with amazingly, cute boutiques! Must go back when they’re open…). Fun fact: Galway Bay was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives! They featured the Guinness battered oysters and the stuffed cabbage wraps – both of which Adam ordered Saturday night.
Hubs enjoyed them – the cole slaw had a bit of a bite to it but over all he said it was amazing.
I’m still on my massive pasta kick, so I enjoyed a linguine with shrimp dish that was quite possibly some of the best shrimp I’ve ever eaten. It was delicious.
Buttery amazingness. Yes I’m aware amazingness is not a word, but who doesn’t like to make up words when it comes to describing delicious food?
We also enjoyed some Annapolis Ice Cream, which is my favorite ice cream joint in town (even more so than Menchies), and lots of good conversation and window shopping – really a perfect weekend.
