My sister came into town this week for a few days to help out since my mom has been having some major health issues that required hospitalization and rehab. Talk about a stressful few weeks! Agh! :-/
While my sister was here, we ate breakfast out twice. Our Thursday morning breakfast was at the always wonderful local Cracker Barrel (hellooooooooooooooo eggs in a basket). We've had a lot of snow in SW Virginia in February so it was nice to relax by the fire and take our time eating a yummy meal. The challenge was where to go on Saturday morning. We decided to check out a restaurant that's only been open for a few months called Scrambled. For starters, it is located in the heart of downtown, across the street from the Farmer's Market. Cannot get a better location. The menu on-line looked good but I wasn't sure if the food would live up to my expectations. It did!
The restaurant is small but clean and nicely decorated with lots of windows and a mostly white interior. I ordered a bacon, egg, tomato, and cheese sandwich on Texas Toast. My husband and sister both had eggs, b'fast potatoes, and bacon. My sister had a side of vanilla French (the best thing on the table!) and my husband had one pancake. Ohhhh, the sweet tea and coffee were good too but the food was delicious and our server was great. I highly recommend Scrambled!
Aside from eating a lot, I've been trying to make a go of it for the Whole Life Challenge. Fell off the wagon for a while during the past two weeks just from all of the health emergencies going on but still giving it a try for these final three weeks. :-)
Saw Harry Connick Jr. this past week when he was touring in Roanoke. What an amazing show he puts on! He and his band played Mardi Gras tunes, some romantic classic love songs, jazz, and two gospel songs. Harry interspersed some dancing, jokes, and stories to make it a really entertaining evening for the more than 1,700 people in the audience. I'm not a big jazz fan but I do appreciate good live music and he's truly amazing and has a much better voice than most. Next up is 'Piano Man' at the end of the month.
