Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Food and Drink, Trips in Eastern United States

On Christmas day my boyfriend gave me the best gift he possibly could have: the gift of Chase Rice.  Quite literally.

Have you ever heard of Lost River, West Virginia?  I’m not going to lie….prior to Labor Day weekend, I hadn’t!  I’m pretty sure most people haven’t.
