Farm Markets, No Farms, No Food, Grow Local, Buy Local, Eat Local, Sussex County, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware…Getting Colder, It’s Fall Season

DSCN1100

All summer long the road stand markets keep us well nourished.  Full of local vegetables and fruits.  It does not get any better.  Now we are into November and it is getting a bit chilly.  So, yesterday I went by Brittingham’ Produce, located at Route 5 in Milton, Delaware.  Tel. 302-684-4232

DSCN1101

Unfotunately, this past week-end was the last one.  Next year around June they will open once again.  The vegetables looked gorgeous and it is a season for turnips.  They are wonderful when roasted.

Their apples were from T.S. Farms in Bridgeville.  Brittingham’s Produce is picked daily.

Milton, Delaware, is located on the Broadkill River and many years ago it was a very important shipbuilding community. The river runs through this town.  The European settlers of the 17th and 18 centuries used this river as a means of transportation.

dscn4655

Many shipyards were eventually located in Milton.

dscn2117

Vaudeville was one of the most popular types of entertainment in North America from 1880’s until the early 1930’s.  The performances were separate, unrelated acts grouped together on a common bill.  It came to be called “the heart of American show business”.

dscn4653dscn4657

The Milton Theatre is located in Downtown Historic Milton, at 110 Union St.  It was built in 1910 and it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Milton.  In the 1930’s it was this community’s art deco movie house, featuring silent films, and the “talkies”.

Destination? Dogfish Head, Downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Restaurant, Pub, Brew Pub, Events, “Weekend of Compelling Ales and Whatnot”, Growler, Sick Cider, Benevolence Day, Monday, March 30, 2015, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

dscn4102

“Filled with mingled cream and amber I will drink that glass again.  Such hilarious visions clamber Through the chambers of my brain–Quaintest thoughts queerest fancies Come to life and fade away; Who Cares how time advances? I am drinking ale today.”  edgar allan poe

Those thoughts in mind brought my friend, Cindi, and I to Dogfish Head located at 320 Rehoboth Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  Tel. 302-226-BREW.  Website? http://www.dogfish.com.  What in the world?  A line to get in?  It was noon on Friday, the 13th of March.  Rehoboth Beach is crowded.  Spring Break, and a destination to Rehoboth Beach.

dscn4105dscn4104

An unveiling of Sick Cider…only 100 growlers….numbered, as well.  The Cider was strong.  Oh yes, we bought one….$20.

Growlers carry fresh beer from a brewery to one’s house.  In the late 1800s and 1900s beer was carried from the local pub to one’s home by means of a small galvanized pail.  Local lore has it that when the beer sloshed around the pail, it created a rumbling sound as the CO2 escaped through the lid, thus the term “growler” started.  Growlers are filled straight from the tap and are sealed with a twist-cap.

Dogfish Head has a list of growlers….the restaurant was crowded, the Weekend of Compelling Ales and Whatnot was a sold out event as it is every year.  This group was definitely ready.  We were having lunch on the second floor.  It was loud and lively!

dscn4107dscn4110

The first floor is usually set up with tables, but for this week-end events the tables were taken out.  On Friday the local brewers were going to get up close and personal with the guests.   Later in the evening live entertainment until closing time.

dscn4120

This restaurant is a must stop when visiting Rehoboth Beach…..first, because the starting of the brewery has been a huge success.  From humble beginnings to being nationally recognized.  The food is good too!!  The retail shop has souveniers for all those beer aficionados on your list.

dscn4106

You can tour the Dogfish Head in Milton, just up the road.  Visit the website for the tour schedules.

dscn0250

dscn0279

Growler on our table….Namaste for Cindi.  Namaste is a Belgian style white beer.  It is made with dried organic orange slices, fresh cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander.  A refreshing and thirst quenching beer!!

dscn4108

An order of the Pub Salad topped with woodgrilled salmon…and their “Midas Touch” vinaigrette.  Very good!!

dscn4115

Cindi’s Woodgrilled Salmon sandwhich was also very well received.

dscn4114

A sweet ending of Ancho Chili Churro Bites…with dipping sauces of Mexican Chocolate, Nutmeg Creme Anglaise, and an Ancho Chili Honey with just the right amount of kick.

dscn4118

EVENT

Dover Eats! Flavor of India, Dover, Delaware, Restaurant, Review, Northern Indian Cuisine, Southern Delaware, Kent County

IMG_1369

The aroma of Indian food; coriander, curries, dry red chillies, turmeric, fennel….sooo good.  Only a few Indian restaurants in Delaware and one of them, Flavor of India, is located at 348 North Dupont Highway, Dover, DE 19901.  Tel. 302-677-0121.  Website?  http://www.flavorofindiade.com.  It is in the same building with a separate entrance from the Motel 8.  Believe me, the restaurant is really good.

They are open 7 days a week.  Dine in or take out.

IMG_1381

Stopped to pick up some take-out and gave Tony the news that my husband, John, had passed away on August 31, 2013.  He was truly shocked and could not believe it.  John and I enjoyed eating at Flavor of India and also enjoyed talking to Tony.

I picked up Lamb Saagwala, which had lamb pieces and fresh spinach cooked in an Indian spicy herbal sauce.  I also picked up some Lamb Pasanda, an authentic dish from northern India. In northern India the curries are thick and the gravies are very creamy.  The basmati rice is awesome with a rich aroma…..you cannot find that rice in Rehoboth Beach…Flavor of India have their own connections.

dscn3233

In the past when dining in I have ordered the pappadom, which is like a flat bread.  Sauces are brought to the table for dipping.  You can also eat it by itself.

IMG_1367

And dishes like the Goat Masala, which my husband loved.  Most of the goat dishes have a bone.

IMG_1377

And, Lamb Zafrani…one of my favorites.

IMG_1376

I took home for dessert Gajar Halwa, which is mainly made with carrots….sweet and very interesting taste.  Have had it before and still like it.  Served warm.

dscn3235

The sense of taste is so acute and amazing….trying the foods from northern India with so many different spices, each hitting at the right time.  So, if you have a craving for Indian food, or just want something different, go and visit Tony at Flavor of India.  I keep telling him they should open a restaurant in Rehoboth Beach.

IMG_1386

Note:  Flavor of India continues to receive awards for being a true representation of Indian food with great service, delicious food, and reasonable prices.  They are also aware of customers with gluten free allergies.

The Greenhouses change with the season.  During the summer months there is a lot going on outdoors, as well.  At this time, it is mainly indoors unless trees and shrubbery is what you are looking for.

dscn2664

Their poinsettias are gorgeous.  All sizes, colors and variations.  Hard to make a decision.

dscn2679

Pepper’s Greenhouses have pots, baskets and their staff is so helpful.  Add a bow, making the containers look just right for gift giving.

Poinsettias are indigenous to Mexico and Central America.  They were introduced in the U.S. in 1825.  I am from Puerto Rico and they do love the weather there.  They are trees flowering at different times of the year.

Pepper’s Greenhouses have forever wreaths and Holiday decorations.  Don’t have that touch?  They can help.

dscn2100

Pepper’s Greenhouses….13034 Cedar Creek Rd., Milton, DE 19968.  Tel. 302-684-8092.  Well, I will give you my Sussex County directions:  From Rehoboth Beach go north on Rt. 1 or Coastal Highway, turn left on Rt. 16 west.  Drive for a few miles and when you get to the stop sign in Milton, where the Food Lion is, turn right and immediately turn left.  Follow that road for less than a mile and the Pepper’s will be on your left.  That easy and worth a trip to the greenhouses.

dscn2101

This is a family operated busines.  They have been doing so since 1985.  They also have online shopping and shipping within the United States.  Visit http://www.accentsforhomeandgarden.com.  They only close on Tuesdays at this time of the year.  On Facebook you can find them two ways:  Pepper’s Greenhouse or Accents for Home and Garden.

Pepper’s takes a complete different aura in the Fall.  Just like anywhere else it is a bit more quiet….well, let me correct myself.  More quiet everywhere else unless you are Sea-Witching in Rehoboth Beach, or ghost hunting in Lewes….Those 2 Delaware Beaches do not stop year-round.

dscn2097

dscn2089

Pepper’s greenhouses looked beautiful the other day.  The weather is cooperating so if you still have some planting to do, take a drive over.  Plenty of cabbages, and winter pansies.

dscn2087

dscn2095

Strolling the greenhouses I found pineapples!!

dscn2090

The poinsettias are slowly turning waiting their turn!!

dscn2091

Pepper’s offers plenty accents for the home and garden.  They also have ready made arrangements and a “forever” section of flowers…silks, etc. etc.

dscn2092

It is going to be beautiful today!!  Check it out!
