Two Weeks of Crazy and Ted's Butcher Block

What have we been up to?  Interesting that you should ask!  We have attended way too many Jazz Combo performances...



And, a few pre-graduation ceremonies...



Four award nights...



And, it has all been fantastic!  I am so incredibly proud of all that my three (two sons and the mister) guys have accomplished in the past two weeks.  Whew!  I have been doing a whole lot of this....



I began my new semester and the workload is pretty extensive but in a good way.  The kind of way that makes your brain work.  Yes, I am smiling but thinking that I probably need to go read some more.  I have also been making a lot of these to get us all through the last few weeks of school with smiles on our faces and nutrients in our blood...



Some days, we all just want to do a bit of this...



The time is drawing near.  School is almost over.  Graduation is right around the corner.  And a plane with two seats to Rome is going to pull into the airport and off we will go!  But, not yet.  Not before I share with you a neat, little place we discovered this past week-end. 



Ted's Butcher Block.  That title just makes you think of meat, doesn't it?  Well, it sort of hit me that way as well.  Considering my plan was to surprise the Mister last Friday evening, I felt like I was on to something pretty sweet.

Ted's is located on East Bay Street and it is a butcher shop.  Kind of tucked away but easy enough to find.  Each Friday, they feature a wine tasting for $5.00 a person. 



And, they have a great wine selection. 



They also have a pretty fantastic meat collection.  Did I really just type that?  Okay, maybe I should say they have an incredible meat counter.  Better?



The mister was smiling from the moment we walked in the door.  That was the plan!  You simply choose your cut of beef, pork, chicken, sausage, fish.....and, they take it out to the grill and prepare it for you.  We started with salads...



The mac and cheese was pretty darn delicious, too!  And, yes, I actually ordered some melt-in-your mouth salmon.  Superb!



Can you guess what the mister ordered?  You probably guessed it but he didn't speak for the first few moments after his rib-eye and twice baked potato arrived.



Score!  We had all had a very long week last week and needed some down time.  Ted's is great.  Pleasant staff.  Good food.  The atmosphere is a deli.  A meat counter.  But, no worries.  The food definitely made up for the atmosphere.

If Ted's intrigues you, check them out!  The are hosting a BBQ on June 22nd and they are at the Daniel Island Farmers Market every Thursday.  


We are plugging away, finishing up the school year and anxiously waiting for summer.  Hope you are enjoying a pleasant week and gearing up for a fabulous long week-end.  Happy Wednesday from Charleston Treasures!
