After a long day of planting our garden on Saturday (more in another post), we decided to be lazy and go out for some food.
We headed over to Tabora Farm & Orchard (1104 Uppers Stump Rd, Chalfont, PA, 18914) for some dinner. If you haven't been to Tabora (or haven't been there in a while), you're in for a treat when you do get there. Besides veggies, fruits and other food items for sale, they have a huge prepared food/deli section. Be wary--it takes a long time to decide on all the great offerings! Sandwiches, salads, soups...loads to choose from. I got a great chicken salad sandwich (with grapes and apples on homemade bread), MB got some chili and Jake got some tasty chicken fingers. MB & I split a Portobello Stacker--grilled portobello mushroom, tomato slice, grilled chicken breast, garlic spinach and goat cheese all stacked up (thus the name). Really tasty.
Tabora also boast loads of freshly baked goods--from sweet things (cookies, danish, etc) to savory items (stuffed rolls, etc). It smells so good in there. They also have ice cream made in-house. Some interesting flavors like rosemary and lemon thyme.
But we were getting dessert later. So we headed over to Lake Nockamixon to eat and my parents came to meet us because we were headed to Owowcow Creamery for ice cream!
Simply said, Owowcow (4105 Durham Rd, Ottsville, PA, 18942) has the best ice cream I've ever had. They make everything in small batches and from local or organic ingredients. The flavors change all the time--you'll want to taste every one of them. They have 3 different kinds of vanilla! I had chocolate-raspberry (with real raspberries) and blueberry-lemon (also with real fruit). MB got some coffee-chocolate flavor. Jake got his favorite--mint-chocolate chip (with fresh mint). My mom got almond-coconut-chocolate chip and Dad got strawberry-rhubarb (again, with real fruit). Man, it's just incredible stuff. You have to at least try the chocolate-jalapeno if they have it when you go. Delicious! Intense dark chocolate followed by the heat. Awesome!
It's so great having places like this all around us. We were talking on the way home how it's funny how it's so in vogue to eat like everyone did 100 years ago--fresh ingredients, local food. That's a trend I can deal with!
Off subject--Don't forget to stop in at the Upper Bucks Chamber of Commerce's Business EXPO tomorrow from noon-6PM at Quakertown High School. Be sure to find my booth for some sample and to sign up for a chance to win a $25 Dinner's Done gift certificate!
