Although we don't get together nearly as often as we want to, the bloggy buddies got together for lunch this week. I love getting together with this group of friends. It isn't like we don't get together all the time online through our blogs and Facebook, but being able to sit down together is so much fun. Being able to see Wifey and how adorable she is pregnant is amazing. Being able to see Flip Flops and how much weight she has lost even since the last time I saw her is just amazing! K and I go to the same church but we never get the chance to just chat so having lunch together was special. But what was really great was getting to meet Mayberry! Yay! Finally I got to meet my sweet friend. Next time the REST of you guys have got to join us because we really missed you (you know who you are!)
For this bloggy buddy lunch we ate at the Auditorium. Have you eaten there yet? It is located in the old Duling School downtown across from St. Luke's church.
It was my first time to try them out. Yum! I browsed their menu before I went and I was glad I did because they had so many things I wanted to choose. I was hooked as soon as I saw shrimp and grits. The waitress was really sweet when I told her to hold the salad since I could not have greens and offered to bring me any other side. The only other item on the side menu that I saw was onion rings.
The onion rings were OK, but kind of greasy and slightly cold when they arrived. The shrimp and grits? DELICIOUS! It was a good size serving without being overwhelming. I would love to go back. Hubs would love the blackened redfish.
Such a great choice for lunch. Proverbs 17:22 says "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine." I am pretty much convinced that I don't need more doctor's appointments, just more bloggy lunches!
