Happy Holidays from I {heart} Rhody

A warm and happy holiday from Erika and Bear!

This year our holiday celebration includes welcoming a new baby girl into the family, so we'll be taking off from posting for the rest of the holiday season. You may still find us (sporadically) on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.

May your days be merry and bright!

Dining ~ Plouf Plouf Gastronomie

Plouf Plouf Gastronomie
Food Truck




We finally found ourselves at the same place at the same time as Plouf Plouf, a French Bistro food truck when we went to the Winter Farmer's Market. We'd been wanting to try it for awhile, and were excited to finally have the chance.

Bear is distrustful of food trucks and took a little convincing, but when she saw the menu, it was an easy sell.

We ordered Boeuf Bourguignon for me, and 'Ambuhger de Canard & Frites (duck hamburger with fries).


The bun was a little burnt, but the burger was perfectly prepared, with applewood smoked bacon, wild mushrooms and pea greens. The bacon was phenomenal, but duck doesn't make a great hamburger, in my opinion. Then again, I'm not a big fan of duck. Bear loves duck, but the burger didn't quite live up to her expectations. She liked it well enough, but it's unlikely she'd order it again.
The Boeuf Bourguignon was another story entirely. It was amazing.

Art scene ~ A Christmas Carol ~ Black Box Theater ~ Cranston

Artists' Exchange Black Box Theater
50 Rolfe Square
Cranston, Rhode Island
December 6 - 22, 2012




The Artists' Exchange Black Box Theater is a storefront theater on Rolfe Square in Cranston, just down the street from the Park Theater. We'd heard of them last year, and wanted to check them out.

We went to the opening night of A Christmas Carol, and had a really nice time. The theater is tiny - only 25 seats - which creates a very intimate atmosphere with the performance. Since we had seats on the floor, we were literally sitting on the edge of the stage. And it really is a black box, although there's a nice cafe (with really good cider) attached to the theater.


Just prior to the performance, we learned that the theater will be moving down the street to 82 Rolfe Square and a larger performance space. We also discovered that Bear knows the cellist, Flannery Brown, who gave a beautiful solo of "Patapan" at one point during the show.

I didn't want to take pic…
