A $20 gift certificate to Et Cetera Gourmet Food Shoppe had been burning a hole in my
We went to Daniel Island last weekend to check out the much talked about Red Balloon Yard Sale. Um, that was kind of a bust. Anyway, afterwards we finally made it to Et Cetera! Here’s a picture of the inside “borrowed” from their website.
As the name suggests, this store offers many gourmet food and gift options including candy, cheese, bread, homemade raviolis, gelato, jewelry, and more. We went there for an early lunch at around 11ish. We could’ve chosen from either their breakfast or lunch menu. After about 45 minutes of me looking over the menu (seriously – ask Scott, he’ll tell you that it felt that long!), I chose the open-faced tuna melt. C’mon – I’m a Libra and as indecisive as they come! Scott asked for a fancy BLT. Somehow he ended up with a turkey sandwich. After one bite, he didn’t want to let anyone know of the mistake! My sandwich was a little bit dry, but maybe I use way too much mayonnaise on my tuna at home. Either way, the flavors were delish and I ate most of it!
We sat outside…it was another gorgeous Charleston day!
What? It’s a big ice cream – course I took a picture!
We couldn’t resist these mini glass bottles of Diet Coke – too cute!
The dressing on the side salad was too yummy!
Overall, the prices were moderate (while our price of FREE was perfect!) but the service and variety of gourmet choices were wonderful. Really – the employees there were very charming! We needed to spend a couple more dollars to use the whole gift certificate. The guy behind the counter suggested buying a loaf of bread (already frozen) to put in the freezer. Done!
Who else is in shock that the weekend’s already over? How the heck does that happen SO FAST?!
p.s. Emmy’s and football tonight…the Giants need to redeem themselves during Monday Night Football!
p.s.s. My newly chosen fav. college team won yesterday, though – GO GAMECOCKS!

Just a random September Thursday late afternoon at Sullivan’s Island…because, why not?
Notice: Carnival Fantasy Cruise sailing out of Charleston (someday we’re getting on that thing!)
p.s. FYI: I get my high temperature info (that I write at the end of each post) from Count on 2 News weather. Therefore, the high temperature is actually from the previous day. Total mind blow!
