happy little things #11

breakfast. b.r.e.a.k.f.a.s.t. one of the greatest things on the earth and you know they don't call it the most important meal of the day for nothing and lets face it, it pretty much is. if  i could get my lazy butt out of bed a bit earlier each day i would make myself a nice big ol' breakfast but since i am lazy i don't and this makes me sad but what can you do....what i can tell you is that i cherish the weekends when tom and i splurge and go out and eat a delicious morning meal!
the other weekend, we decided to try a new place and man oh man did it not disappoint! we did a bit of research and made sure we got there early as the place fills up after 10am, thankfully we got there around 9 and we were seated right away, it was awesome and it pleased me.
the restaurant which was called, brown sugar kitchen, is known for their chicken and waffles which is a favorite of toms. as for the icing on top of this wonderful place, they had cheese grits. now, some of you that have been reading for a bit. know, that i love me some good ol' grits!
tom and i really didn't need to read the menu as we were drooling over it the night before so we ordered right away and man oh, man oh man! the food was AMAZING! the best waffles, hands down i have EVER had and the chicken and waffles were out of this world. as the for the grits, i was pretty much in grits heaven! they were creamy and cheesy and just perfect to the very last morsel. tom had to stop me from licking my plate.

are you hungry yet?

  10. hee hee, could just picture you trying not to lick the plate :D breakfast really can be the best meal of the day, & this sounds amazing. Sadly we hardly ever have breakfast together, & nearly always on the go; & let's face it, few places near where I live do anything decent for brekkie (cept for the usual full english, yuck)!
    Which is why I LOVE it when we're in the states, we always take time to find somewhere for breakfast & it's always amazing, Hubby's fave is corned beef hash; I'm more a granola, yoghurt, fruit gal, but it's always sooo great xox

  12. I haven't had grits in FOREVER. They are pretty much a staple in the South though. I should make some soon! I've never heard of people putting chicken and waffles together! So funny...seems like a decent combo though.
