It’s time we had a talk…about Sticky Toffee Pudding and an English Pub named Marshall

di·et/ˈdī-it/

Verb:

Restrict oneself to small amounts or special kinds of food in order to lose weight: “it is difficult to diet in a house full of cupcakes”.

Now that you know the definition of using “diet” as a verb…let’s talk, because there are

My own personal treasure box of bliss…

some things that you just don’t restrict yourself on.

The example sentence that Google brings up is “It is difficult to diet in a house full of cupcakes.” Ya think? NO kidding? Seriously? Duh. Hell, it’s difficult just dieting being surrounded by some of these wonderful restaurants we have in our surrounding communities, let alone being in a house full of cupcakes. Wait…YOU have a house full of cupcakes??? You can email me your address at TheOnyxPlate@gmail.com. Depending on your distance from North Carolina, I can possibly make it there within a week. *wink*

My personal sentence I would like to bring to your attention involving the word “diet” being used in it’s verb form…”It’s difficult to diet in a world where Sticky Toffee Pudding exists.” Restrict oneself, what???

The housemade Ginger Ale that will be at The Marshall Free House…currently served at Darryl’s in Greensboro, NC.

Yes ma’am and sir, I said it. I have found my most favorite dessert ever. It might even top a select few of our family’s tried and true Southern desserts. It’s just plum delightful!

If you have been following my Facebook page, you will know my full, uncensored opinion of it. It is as follows…”Like sex: Smooth on the tongue, sweet to the palate, sticky on the lips.” It is every bit of those words, and more. *smiles*

Lucky for me (unlucky for the diet), we have an English Pub opening up in the Summer of 2012 locally. It boasts authentic UK food, beer and spirits, and specializing in three important things: Food, Drink and Conversation. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a tasting for a small selection of their offerings recently, and the Sticky Toffee Pudding was served. Along with it, there were Scotch Eggs, Shepherd’s Pie, Fish and Chips, and a thirst-quenching selection of UK beers.

Amongst all of the amazing food their Culinary Wizard and Passionate Owner have imagined, there will be a vast array of beer and spirits that will leave you in awe. Juices fresh-squeezed, mixes handmade, and sodas made in-house. The vision of The Marshall Free House is unlike any other you have encountered here locally…perhaps anywhere. It will leave you with a happy belly, quenched thirst, and a joyful heart and mind from just being there.

It takes passion (and orgasmic Sticky Toffee Pudding) to make a business last, folks……….The Marshall Free House is going to last a very long time. Come on Summer 2012!!!
