Farmers Famous Fish relocated to parking lot across from Bruster’s IceCream in Glasgow.
Hello Friends, I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday!
Saturday, I had the BEST fish sandwich that I’ve ever eaten in my life and “that’s the truth Ruth!” Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had plenty of good fried fish sandwiches; my cousin in New Rochelle can throw down; my church sells some mean fried fish dinners on Fridays; last year I waited almost an hour for a piece of fried fish at Del State’s homecoming; and I always buy fish sandwiches from Dale United Methodist Church at The Middletown Peach Festival. BUT The Farmer Family, owners of Farmers Famous Fish, can throw down, their fish sandwiches are by far the best I’ve ever tasted!
This ‘old school famous fish fry is located in the corner of the BP parking lot on Routes 896/40 in Glasgow, DE. They will be celebrating their 1st Year Anniversary at this…

Hello Friends and Happy Ju’last day in July!
I hope it’s just a beautiful where you are as it is here because we have been experiencing wonderful weather this week. Tomorrow calls for a little rain but the rest of the week and into the weekend will be simply gorgeous! I have two blogging assignments scheduled for Thursday, one is a meeting to discuss doing a review for the Grand Opening of the Westown Movie Theater coming to Middletown this fall. Then mid-morning I will be heading to Wilmington to take pictures and interview young entrepreneurs who have completed “The Chasing The Dream Entrepreneurship Camp” sponsored by The Money School of Delaware.
I have taken the day off from work, however, if you’re working tomorrow in Wilmington, please stop by Rodney Square between 11 and 1 for the “Chasing The Dream Entrepreneurship Marketplace”. Students learned about starting businesses and now they have an opportunity and tools to run those businesses so please come out and support (don’t forget to bring an umbrella).

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!
Summer is is flying by so quickly can you believe tomorrow is the last day of July!
This outfit which I wore last Friday was totally thrifted from GW Boutique and was very comfortable for the weather. Last week there were several temperature fluctuations that ended with a torrential rain storm on Sunday. Motorist returning from the beach and shore were stranded on major highways for hours. This week we are in store for beautiful, low humidity days perfect for anyone taking a late vacation to the beach.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday, I trust you all had a wonderful weekend!
If you read my post on Saturday you know I went to Goodwill for their annual 50% off sale and it was like a department store’s Grand Opening. The place was PACKED, there were long lines waiting for the dressing rooms, people pushing full carts of clothing, laughter and excitement when new items with tags were found and clerks rolling out full racks every 5 minutes, it was an amazing sight to see. Although I had only planned to go to Middletown, I kinda sorta wished I had also driven down to Smyrna and Dover.
I did however go with the purpose of getting an “I Love Thrifting” t-shirt, which Goodwill introduced earlier this month for $12.00. I have never ever purchased an item at Goodwill for that much, but the $12 cost for t-shirt is supporting a worthy cause and I am a proud Goodwill VIP who loves to thrift!
I was also intent on finding clothing for the Fall because I have more than enough shorts, tanks and skirts for the summer season which is rapidly coming to an end. I thrifted a dress, 2 tops, a pair of culottes and two maxi skirts all for under $14.00 – #winning
I can’t wait for the next big sale and if you are not a Goodwill VIP, it’s free to sign up and you’ll receive emails with dates for these events.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
Is your palate stuck in a rut…do you find yourself always ordering the same foods…pizza, cheese steaks or Chinese takeout? Do you want something different while supporting a new local business, then I suggest you try Swahili Kitchen on Main Street in Middletown.
Swahili Kitchen specializes in East African cuisine, specifically recipes from Tanzania, and although the menu is new it’s actually the second part of Manhattan Bagel, also owned by Rishen Patel and his wife Heeral.
The concept of adding a different offering in an already thriving breakfast business was a great idea, Rishen stated that after 2 p.m. no one was coming in to buy bagels so he decided to offer his native foods. In Middletown you can find every type of food except African style which is what motivated the Patels to open Swahili Kitchen.
On Sunday, hubby and I stopped in and decided to try the chicken and beef items from the promotional menu, which also included Pork Kebabs, but you know we don’t eat pork. If you like mildly spicy foods you will definitely enjoy the Chicken dishes, especially the marinated leg quarters called Sekela. There was just the right balance of seasoning including curry and the chips weren’t soggy even with the veggie topping. The promotional prices, currently $5 and under were very reasonable considering the portion sizes which were more than enough for leftovers.
The Chicken Mishkaki is listed as being served on a skewer, but since we had take out it was simply placed in a Styrofoam container. The Tamarind Sauce was a perfect compliment to this dish of very tender chicken cubes, potatoes, green peppers and onions slices.
What are called “chips” in Africa are actually what we call “fries”, and they are topped with a veggie mix of shredded carrots, cabbage and red onions and a perfect blend of spices.
Chicken Pili Pili is a spicy BBQ leg quarter served with white rice and coleslaw
Dinner was excellent and the side sauce added just the right amount of “fire” for me!
So this weekend if you are in the mood for something different head over to Swahili Kitchen which is located at 400 W. Main St. and their hours of operation are 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday (closed Monday)
