there’s this great little store in gig harbor.
it’s called harbor general store.
they have feel-good, funky, wish i’d thought of that, yummy foods. fresh baked goods. local items. the kind of store that is quaint, small town, but cool with a vibe that makes you want to hang out.
so, when my mom called me up this morning and asked me to meet and catch up, i suggested this place.
mainly because i wanted the acai bowl.
it’s a bowl of a thick smoothie like layer, topped with crunchy homemade granola, fresh fruit, toasted coconut and drizzled with local honey. you can google it if you want to know how to make it. i just call it a bowl of deliciousness!!
she had the gouda, beechers cheese and spinach grilled cheese sandwich on sourdough with a housemade pickle.
i swear it’s the kind of food i wish i cooked. but i don’t. why? because i have a 15 year old son that appreciates tacos, burgers, spaghetti… the ususal.
we chatted and caught up. she’d gone so much. and for some reason i’ve been feeling the need for family lately so i was happy when i got the call.. she was in town. and available for the afternoon. of course i dropped what i was doing.
the bonus? she bought me the mug i’ve been eyeing the past few times i’ve been in the store. be aware that if you see something in the store… buy it! because once it’s gone they replace with something new. every time i walk in there i find something “i must have”. lesson learned. if i must have it. buy it. if i have money. haha
BE YOUR FUNKY SELF.
thanks mom. thanks harbor general store. it was a perfect afternoon.
