1 Corinthians 10:26 KJV

For the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof.

The smell of fresh coffee, sausage and eggs greet you at the door… murmurs of intimate conversations fill the air…

Mexican chorizo sausage, salsa verde & manchego cheese

I wanted to try something new and different, and that’s exactly what I got.  Led here by a 50% off option on Scout Mob (yes, I live on a BUDGET!), I felt there was no time like the present to “taste and see”.  If you are looking for your traditional bacon, eggs, and grits, this is not the place for you!!  Omelets that cover half of your plate and a bread selection to please any palette calls 1720 West End Avenue “Home” :).  Great customer service, pleasurable window views, and a cozy earthy/modern ambiance is a great way to start your day.  They serve breakfast, lunch, and brunch daily.  I developed an immediate appreciation for the “Brunch Libations” ;).  Bon appetite!

Things Moms Say….

Leave a comment

Yes, Mother’s day is Sunday May 13th (in case you didn’t know or FORGOT)!!!!  Your mom has been too good to you to receive a card that has been beat up from all the people who went through them YESTERDAY (lol)!!!  Maybe you should remind her of a few things that she has DEFINITELY said during her tenure… As a woman I’ll probably say a few of these same things to my chaps…  And we say that we’ll never “say these things to our kids” or “treat our kids this way” …. #LiesandDeceit :-)!!!


Here is a list of the most common and popular “mom-isms”. These motherly advise transcends the borders of time, space, language and culture. For kids are kids everywhere and Mom are always Mom…caring, concern, all-knowing and full of love.

  • Money does not grow on trees.
  • I brought you into this world, and I’ll for sure take you out!*
  • Don’t make that face or it’ll freeze in that position.
  • If I talked to my mother like you talk to me….
  • Always change your underwear; you never know when you’ll have an accident.
  • I’m the mother, you’re the child.*
  • Be careful or you’ll put your eye out.
  • Don’t make me grab my belt!*
  • What if everyone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?
  • You’re a leader, not a follower.*
  • You have enough dirt behind those ears to grow potatoes!
  • If I have to tell you ONE MORE TIME!*
  • Close that door! Were you born in a barn?
  • If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
  • Let the door knob hit you where the good Lord split you!*
  • Don’t put that in your mouth; you don’t know where it’s been!
  • I pay the cost to be the boss!!*
  • Be careful what you wish for, it might come true.
  • This hurts me more than it hurts you.*
  • Don’t eat those, they will stunt your growth.
  • Don’t make me call your daddy!*
  • I mean what I say, and say what I mean!*
  • What’s meant to be, is meant to be. (Mom only used this when something bad happened or when you experienced a disappointment.)
  • It doesn’t matter what you accomplish, I’ll always be proud of you.
  • I hope that when you grow up, you have kids “Just Like you”! (Also known as the “Mother’s Curse”)
  • I’ll be all over you like white on rice!!*
  • Because I’m your mother that’s why!!
  • You’ll never get to old to lean across this knee!*
  • What did R. Kelly say… “If the shoe fits”!*
  • Most importantly, I LOVE YOU!!!*

Celebrate with a mother this weekend. They have the hardest job on earth, raising us!

The Original Brunches: Breakfast and Lunch

Leave a comment


Wake up on the Sunny Side!!

Great food, GREATER service!!!

From the moment you walk in until the time you leave you will be surrounded by great food and great people!!!  My uncle invited my aunt and I to lunch while my mom was in the hospital (detailed post will come), and this was his suggestion.  I am still grateful for the broccoli casserole, and the mac and cheese was FABULOUS!!  Each day offers a tongue teasing dish that is sure to knock your socks off!!!  We happened to visit on “Meatloaf Monday”…

Meatloaf Monday!!!

Meatloaf (yes, with rice…YUMMY!!!), broccoli casserole (veggie), mac & cheese (veggie), and collard greens…. #delightful

The meatloaf was made the way my grandmother used to do it, the mac & cheese the way it should be, and the sweet tea was TRUE to Carolina!  Add the ketchup if you dare!!!  Yes, this was definitely a portion large enough to be “Linner” (lunch and dinner).

My friends and I are slightly round with REASON!  We enjoy food, fun, and fellowship.  We take steps to remain healthy, but anytime we have the opportunity to try something tasty and new, we’re all for it!!  So, if you enjoy great food and happen to visit Columbia, SC this is a place to put on your list!!  Check please!!!
