I Like My Ice Cream, Especially During Hot Summers

By: Nat on July 8, 2012

Went on another afternoon motorcycle ride out to Pace and then on the way back stopped at Dairy queen off scenic highway for a chocolate dipped cone.  I remember when I was younger (12-13) living in Pensacola and my dad would take us to DQ, I got chocolate dipped cones back then too.  I never went for the super loaded ice cream with sprinkles, syrups,  I was pretty simple.  I was still conservative then with food, I was never over the top.

Embracing New Travel And New Foods

Went for a motorcycle ride, went to Joe Pattis Restaurant for lunch. It is my third time going there in the last 11 years, ( two of those years I was in California) and I’ve enjoyed it each time.  I got the grilled salmon salad.  I was just in a space of eating at home,  doing my own cooking and I have decided to embrace the unknown.  I’m up for the challenge ! I’m conservative yet I am a risk taker, so here I go !

When I was in California I use to go to a Mexican supermarket and I would get bolillos.  It’s a soft bread that had Mexican cream cheese with jalapenos in it.  They are delicious.

Lovely Wednesday

By: Nat on June 27, 2012

I did not go to my nephews game last night.  My father filled me in and there was a question of an illegal bat being used by the opposing team.  The  refs pondered, looked up rules  over the call, let it go during the second inning, in the 4th inning they reversed their call.  The game started back to 2nd inning eliminating any points that were scored during 3rd and 4th innings.  They lost 14-7, however they got the experience.  Next will be football !

So I went and had breakfast this morning at Trigger’s with my sister and her family, family friends, and my dad.  It is the first time I have ever been there, it was breakfast so that was kind of a safe restaurant experiment for me.  I will have to go back and sample the chefs fish dishes, sauces and such.  I’m up for the challenge of my taste buds.

Fathers Day Was A Treat For Me

My siblings, myself  and their families went to Five sisters blues cafe and it was great from the food, to the music, to the atmosphere.  We were a large group and we preferred outside.    The day was beautiful and all my nieces and nephews were there, plus my dad. The restaurant provides southern cooking, soul food. The cafe carries a different menu on  Sunday, so I’m curious to see what foods are available M-Sat. You can download their menu on line.  I ordered the chicken strips with the waffle and the chicken kept up to its reputation, tastefully moist, cooked to perfection.

I’m embarking on a new adventure in my community to go to all the hidden jewel eatery places.  So for all you Gulf Coast locals and visitors,  I will be reporting and exploring our distinct magnificent cuisine.  I am picky, I usually like eating and cooking at home, however, I love food, delicious, tasty, flavorful food.  I am a foodie!  So if you have places to recommend in your region by all means share!
