Since arriving in Georgia, all we have done is eat! We meet people and eat. Go to friends house and eat. Meet friends for drinks and eat.
I have been full for over a week. I’m getting to the point that the thought of food makes me feel sick, and I miss cooking. I haven’t cooked anything since we arrived. I’m sure I’ll come back to Florida a few pounds heavier.
We plan to leave bright and early Saturday. We originally planned to go home today, but our niece’s 2nd Birthday is Friday and work is slow. We figured we would stay a couple extra days.
Yesterday, I took the dogs to the Vet. Our old vet, here, is a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the Florida vet. I took them for their yearly shots before our cruise and it cost over $300 and it didn’t include the heartworm test. That was an extra $150 EACH! I took them to Jefferson Animal Hospital. For the heartworm test and a 6 months heartworm shot, I spent less than $150, total. DEAL!
The Yahoo’s are not fans of the vet’s office.
Ginny gets clingy and Oopie tries to escape every time we go. Ginny sat by me the whole time we were there and when the vet walked in, he curled up under my legs. Oopie looked at the door the entire time we were there. “LET ME OUT!!”
After the Vet, Huck and I went to our favorite Bosnian restaurant.
My Papa Mathis loves to try new food too, so he joined up for lunch. He is where I get my adventurous eating from. He loves to try new food and loves to cook. He use to be a big fan of Rachel Ray and he makes the best BBQ EVER!! I always told him, I wanted to open a small, hole in the wall, BBQ stand with him.
I invited my sister, brother-in-law, and mom, but they all said they didn’t like “Weird Food”. I never considered Gyros “weird”. And I know they like grilled food. They didn’t want to try it when I said it was a Bosnian restaurant.
Atlanta is full of interesting places to eat. One thing I miss about home!
We pulled up to Taste of Bosnian and almost cried when we walked in, and discovered it closed and was now a Nigerian restaurant.
We decided to stay for lunch anyways. I don’t think I’ve ever tried West African food.
I ordered the Jollof Rice with Fish and Huck and my Papa ordered the Jollof Rice with Goat.
I received two large pieces of fish, with the bones still in them, plantains, and the worlds largest portion of rice. The spicy tomato sauce, over the fish, was great. We asked for more to pour over the rice. It had a perfect balance of tomato and spicy flavors.
Last night, Tabby invited us over for dinner (of course) and we sat around and watched Christmas movies and drank wine.
My sister knows how to pour a glass of wine!
She even gave me a straw so I wouldn’t spill it. I guess she reads my blog
I’ve really enjoyed all the time we have spent with Tabby and Michael. All this time with family and friends is making it really hard to leave. I’m missing home and the warm weather, though.
