It’s Friday!! Yay!! I love Fridays, because it’s when I get to share with you one of my “new” blogging “friends. I may not know them personally, but I’ve met them through the blogging community, and here, we are all friends. 😉
Today, I’d like to introduce you to Carla over at seakingthesun. I started following her blog quite a while back, but I dropped back by tonight, and I was just “wowed” by this piece about forgiveness. She has such a brave, strong heart, and I hope you will find encouragement there as I have.
Have a great weekend ahead! 💗
Old Ebitt Grill
Location: Washington D.C.
If you go to the Old Ebbitt Grill, you’ve got to try the shrimp and grits! Oh. My. Goodness! Amazing! The grit cake has a deep fried breading, but somehow, they left the grits all creamy and delicious on the inside. The shrimp are huge and succulent, and the sauce is incredible.
My husband said the jalapeño burger is one of the best burgers he’s ever had! My oldest son got the buffalo fried chicken sandwich, which he absolutely loved, and he doesn’t even like slaw! Even the chicken fingers that our youngest had were gobbled up in a flash. The sandwiches were all served with hand cut French fries, and they were great!
This place is absolutely amazing! It’s right in the “hub” of Washington DC; so, if pure needing to get a bite while you’re out and about, it’s easy to get there. I’m sorry, I can’t vouch for the ease of parking, as we walked everywhere, but it was an easy trek from our hotel on the way to our site seeing adventures around the national monuments. The atmosphere is great for lunch or dinner.
You can check out the menu and hours here, and just as a note for anyone from the South who really loves your sweet tea: the “syrup-sweetened” sweet tea is really more like an Arnold Palmer. So, if you like your tea like that, you’ll be fine; otherwise, just stick to water or a Coke. 😉
Figs Beanery & Creamery
Location: Anderson, SC
This little place has a great atmosphere and helpful staff. It’s really tiny; so, don’t feel like you’re gonna have a bunch of space, but there are a handful of tables and chairs inside and out, but at least drop by for a cookie and a cup of coffee, because you don’t want to miss it! They have a walk up window, too.
Their cookies and ice cream are delicious, and the coffee is just as good. I had their coconut pecan cookie, oatmeal raison and half of a yummy, deliciousness of which I don’t know the name, but it had coconut, pecans, and chocolate chip goodness inside! Oh. My!
They do serve sandwiches and soups, and the several I saw looked delicious. They have plenty of ice cream from which to choose, and even sell big ice cream eager to make your own ice cream sandwich. There is whole bean coffee to buy and even soft drinks and teas.
It’s got a quaint little atmosphere that you really must experience. Check them out on the web.
