Lunch-we ate at my parents' house when we dropped of S for the weekend
I had a shrimp and avocado salad. I also had a neon colored margarita. Not sure what ingredient made it day-glo colored (see it on the top right corner of the picture), but it was tasty. M had a burrito--some type of chicken and black bean. I can't remember what it was called. He was really digging it, but it was so big. By the time he finished it, he was too full.
Breakfast-Soby's on the Side
I met a friend there for breakfast. I had the scrambled egg and cheese sandwich. Cindy had grits. And I forgot to take a picture of either.
It was my first time. I had a vegetarian bowl and M had a burrito. My bowl was delicious. I'm going to try to recreate at home. But I'm also looking forward the the new Chipotle going in near my house. Again, I failed at pictures. :-(
Dinner-Tupelo Honey Cafe
I had a Tupelo Elixer (rosemary-peach lemonade with Firefly Skinny Vodka) and M had the Cheerwine Anytime (Cheerwine soda and Maker's Mark bourbon). Then we were each served a giant biscuit with blueberry preserves and Tupelo Honey. Delicious. For my meal, I had Brian's Shrimp and Grits, while M had the Cheesy Grill & ToMAYto ToMAHto Soup (grilled cheese and tomato soup).
After walking off our fullness, we had dessert at a fro-yo place called Blueberry Frog. I had just a plain chocolate. M had the key lime. Mine was just ok-kind of grainy, but the key lime was outstanding.
Breakfast-cereal bars in the room
While we were walking through the Farmer's Market, I stopped for an iced coffee at one of my favorite coffee houses, Port City Java. I used to live in Wilmington, N.C., where this coffee shop was founded. We ate many breakfasts, lunches, and after dinner treats there.
Lunch-Smoke on the Water
I had the pulled pork sandwich with baked beans. M had the crabcakes. Of course I forgot pictures, but here is my empty plate. It was so good!! M said the crabcakes were outstanding--not a lot of filler. They also served us a breadbasket full of cornbread. Yum!!
We went for a tapas restaurant for dinner. Each of us started out with a nice white wine. Each plate that we ordered was designed to feed 2-4 people (depending on the plate).
Traditional Cold Caprese
Fire Roasted Pepper Calamari
Free Range Roasted Chicken--this was by far our favorite!!!
After dinner we went to a cupcake shop called The Chocolate Moose for dessert.
I got a Black Bottom Cupcake (dark chocolate with a chocolate chip cheesecake baked inside with a cream cheese icing)
M got a deconstructed cupcake-it was a Grasshopper. Chocolate cupcake crumbles topped with a mint mouse and chocolate shavings.
He also got a red velvet cake pop. And was kind enough to let me have a bite.
Greenville has so many great restaurants. I wish we had been there longer to try out more.
