Odd Day for Brunch?

Maybe I’m super late in finding out that one of my favorite restaurants serves brunch not only on Sundays, but Saturdays too!!

While I am excited about this news, it also seems a bit strange bravo-restaurant-greenwood-indiana[1]since I rarely think of brunch being appropriate for a Saturday.

Nevertheless, the restaurant Bravo offers its full brunch menu on Saturdays now which means that I can order my stuffed French toast and a refreshing peach Bellini on a Saturday. Umm… #Winning! imagesStuffed-Berry-French-Toast63EDstuffed-french-toast[1]

What do you think? Is brunch meant JUST for Sundays? Just for the weekend? Or any day?

April Showers Brings…

For years I’ve seen girls wear the cutest styles of rainboots: Burberry,

florals, Coach, polka dots you name it! As much as I liked them I didn’t feel I needed to buy a pair.

These are so cute I wouldn't even want to wear them!

These are so cute I wouldn’t even want to wear them!

Patterns!!

Patterns!!

But, I caved in. (it should be mentioned that I went to DSW for rainboots ONLY because I had store credit that I wanted to use).

I didn’t buy the most pimped out pair, but instead I bought an everyday/ average navy blue pair with a pop of pink on the trim of the boots.

Yes, they have come in handy,

Yes, I plan to buy another pair (patterned this time)

and Yes, wearing these rain boots makes me want to go fishing-seriously. Boots

So, to the month of April I say “Bring on the showers, because I will be fashionably ready!”

Southern Style Sunday-Shrimp and Grits

Today I’m reminiscing on a dinner I had last weekend, but this meal could also be used for breakfast and brunch.

The dish is shrimp and grits. It sounds simple because it is.

I won’t go into a detailed recipe, because I’ve learned there are many th5QWS9L87variations to this classic dish. When cooking the grits we made them very rich, using half and half, cheese, butter, and seasoning occasionally with salt and pepper. Fresh chopped parsley was added for a little hint of color. The shrimp were lightly seasoned, sautéed, and then added to the grits which equaled a big pot of deliciousness!

My dad cooked white bass fish as we had extra, and we enjoyed Italian moscato which paired great with the seafood.

What’s your variation of shrimp and grits? And if you haven’t tried it, what are you waiting for?!
