The Merrill Inn

I am seriously over the moon on this one! Coriander Girl is pleased to introduce, coming to you live from the highly acclaimed Merrill Inn in Prince Edward County, Michael Sullivan's own fine foods and 'Catherine's Own' delicious preserves. Now you can make a meal that tastes as incredible, as long as you don't over steam the veg or burn the toast, as the dinner you would enjoy at the beautiful Merrill Inn restaurant.

If you can't make it to the county, it's okay cuz I've brought the county to you! The Spiced Pear and Tomato Chutney is beckoning me from across the room to open a jar and dig in, the Roasted Garlic and Rosemary Oil is taunting me to drizzle it over everything, the package of 2 County Wine Jellies are screaming to be slathered on a steamy buttery tea biscuit, while the Waupoos Cider Salad Dressing yearns to be poured over a bed of crisp greens with crunchy caramelized pecans. Oh man, that's just the beginning!

My darling Tyler once worked in the restaurant for Edward and Amy Shubert, proud owners of the Merrill Inn and the kindest, most sincere people you'll ever meet. It was there, that Tyler learned the importance of quality food service and has maintained that standard for himself. Edward and Amy are highly regarded in the hospitality industry with over twenty years experience and Michael Sullivan their chef remains one of the top chefs in the country. So, the fact that you can now bring some of that decadence home, well doesn't it just rock your socks off!?

Some amazing finds this week end while visiting our folks. My favorite score is a tin that reads, 'Beef minute steaks.' Beef in a tin, sure. We took a drive north with Bill and Penny and had quite the time sifting through barns and people's front yards and back yards and their sheds too. I love to dig! They know I'm crazy and they support me every step of the way. The Hogans just bought a pizzeria, I know! And man can they make a mean pie! Bill's burger is one of the best I've ever had! Go visit them at Vito's in Foxboro next time you're passing through. Tell them Cori G sent you and you're sure to be greeted with a giant hug and probably one when you leave too. Love you guys!
And Coriander Girl officially bought her parents car. It's a vibe, yeah I'm hip. They treat their cars like children and it's basically brand spanking new. Thanks mum and pop. The license plate isn't my favorite but my two options were, BJFW 462 or BJFU 242. Wow.

I decided to write this post because if I had read something similar to this when I was first starting out in Real Estate, I would have saved myself a lot of time, headaches and stress.
