So I know you guys have seen how I'm trying to live right and eat all the right things right....well some things just can't be avoided! I love a good brunch! I have been hearing about Miss Shirley's for a few years now but never got around to trying it out myself. I was so excited when they invited me to come try it out..how could I resist?
Remember how I said I love brunch....well I don't know why it took me so long to get here, when I saw the menu it was like brunch heaven! I mean first things first, every good brunch requires a good drink to start right? Mimosa's are my fave and they pulled out all the stops. It looked delish before I even had a chance to try it out!
They have so many options on the menu, it took my girlfriend and I several minutes to focus and pick something! You can't just come here once, clearly this requires more than one visit to really get the experience! They have tons of options for Omelettes, Pancakes and Waffles! Sandwiches and even Salads (if you must LOL).
We started with the BBQ Chicken Deviled Eggs and Fried Green Tomatoes w/ Crab...of course!
I am not a fan of deviled eggs, but these looked so good I had to try one off of my girlfriends plate! They were so tasty, the BBQ chicken on top gave it an amazing flavor! I love love love...did I say I LOVE Fried Green Tomatoes (no, not the movie!) and then they gave me an option to add crab! It was an amazing combo! There was just the right amount of lump crab to satisfy my craving because truth be told I would eat crab all day every day if I had the option!
Our main course was not easy to narrow down, I promise you! We decided to go with the Shrimp and Grits and the Crab Happy Chesapeake Chicken Sammy. We were not disappointed at all! The display alone of the shrimp and grits made you want to jump right in! The Crab Happy Chesapeake Chicken Sammy is a sandwich with a crab cake, fried pickle, fried egg and chicken sausage. I told you I love crab...I was NOT expecting this sandwich to have a full crab cake that was all meat no filler on top. It was amazing and fried pickles too! It was a tasty combination of flavors that will leave your mouth watering! I couldn't finish the whole sandwich...the second half was just as good later!
With our stomach's full we vowed that this would not be our last visit to Miss Shirley's! There were way too many other goodies on the menu calling our name to try! This place definitely tops the list for breakfast or brunch! Check out some more photos of what's on the menu, I promise you don't want to miss out!

Ok, calm down! I'm not kicking them out for good! During the summer when I was a kid it was rare that I was in the house. On the days when I did want to lounge around my mom was quick to give us an alternative- stay inside and clean or go outside and play! Now that I think about it maybe that's why we were outside so much!
None the less, here I am all grown up with two kids and it's summer time. Well I don't know if it's just my kids or what but I have to practically drag them outside on any given day. I have tried my mom's threat and ended up with 4 clean bathrooms and freshly mopped floors. Don't get me wrong...it was a nice break for me but what kid would rather clean than go outside!!?? Mine, especially my son. He will do anything to play that stinking video game of his even if it means cleaning. I have decided that this summer, I am kicking them out. Am I the only parent who is sick of so much screen time? I have so many great memories as a kid of the adventures we would go on with our bikes, the games we would play (OUTSIDE!), or even just finding my favorite spot to pack a lunch and read my favorite book.
So Mom's out there, help me out if you have better ideas or get on board and kick your kids out too!! I refuse to let my kids only childhood memory be what video game they played or what TV show they watched!
Keep an eye out, I will be sure to share my journey because I'm dedicated to getting these kids outside more and making some real childhood memories!
Sidenote- The lovely artwork is compliments of my daughter when she got kicked out yesterday..LOL
