Milford, PA


Whenever visiting the inlaws, we try and drive to Milford, about an hour away. It's a quaint little town chock full of wonderful little stores. Of course, one of my favs has to do with food. (grin)




We came upon Fretta's several years ago and the family has been going there ever since. The hub's mom's family owned a little Italian store quite like this while she was growing up in Jersey City. It has all the essential Italian gourmand necessities and quite a few great home made foods, including the best meatballs around. I am one of those gringos completely unable to make meatballs without them turning into patties. Go figure. If we all congregate to the inlaws' in the summer, it is up to each of us to cook dinner one night. Uh huh, you got it. The hub and kid make their Italian sauce and I buy the meatballs and delicious hand made sausage here. Heaven on earth, I tell ya. Since we were celebrating Ukie Christmas, we didn't need a thing from here. The kid was disappointed though that they didn't have any sfogliatelle, one of our favorite Italian delicacies. It's a flaky pastry filled with orange flavored ricotta. Another piece of Heaven on earth. In fact, they didn't' have any pastries. Hmmmm. (Not that we needed any.)





Here's a couple other nice buildings in the small town. The white house on the left is the community house. Take a look at this gorgeous railing and staircase in one of the antique stores. What I would do to move that thing to my house--not that mine could even handle the enormity of it!









Here we are heading back across the Delaware River to New York.

Sounds like a wonderful deli! I wouldn't bother making meatballs or sausage either if theirs are that wonderful.
Love the old houses. Just gorgeous!
((hugs))

That pastry sounds delicious! Too bad they were out of it. The staircase is to die for....but it wouldn't fit in my house either! They just don't make things like that anymore.

Milford seems to be a very nice place to visit, especially if it has such an Italian store ;-D! Those pictures of sausages made me hungry. Food is a lot cheaper in the US than here in Switzerland...

I also love those three buildings. The white house is very beautiful!

Milford looks like the type of place I would LOVE to visit! I travelled through PA a few years ago with a friend...we went to Philadelphia and then to Atlantic City in New Jersey. I wonder how far from Milford we were...I'll have to look at the map:-) Hugs xox

I agree with Pea. This type of town slows us down, makes for a calmer experience away from the rush of the world!!!
