Happy Wednesday y’all! I’m feeling like a true Southerner this week. We traveled north from Orlando to Atlanta and yet I feel more like a Southern Belle. Orlando doesn’t have all that southern charm like Atlanta does, you know?
So onto my eats for What I Ate Wednesday. My eats are all from my travels around Atlanta- except this amazing pizza from Blaze Pizza. We stopped at Blaze in Gainesville on our way from Florida To Georgia. Have any of you been to a Blaze yet? It’s like a Chipotle but with pizza. At the end of the line your pizza is fired in a hot oven and cooked in 90 seconds. I cannot wait until they open in Orlando. Here Chad and I split a build-your-own veggie pie and their white top pizza without the bacon.
The night we arrived in Atlanta we went to a spot just up the road from the hotel called Tin Lizzy Cantina. I loved my BBQ Shrimp skillet. I ordered a side of guacamole and I ended up loving the combination of avocado and BBQ. Definitely trying that at home.
Our first breakfast in Georgia was in a town called Acworth- northwest of Atlanta. It was a new restaurant that just opened in an old mill called Gabriel’s. We sat outside, enjoying weather that was cooler than what we left behind in Orlando. Chad loved his blueberry pancakes…..
….I enjoyed eggs with pimento cheese and tomatoes on sourdough toast.
However, I couldn’t resist a big slice of chocolate cake for dessert. I mean dessert comes after a meal and breakfast is a meal…right?
Another place we loved for lunch was called Bone Garden Cantina and there we ate Vegetarian hibiscus flower tacos and cactus tacos.
We chowed on esquite– corn mixed with mayonnaise, chili powder, queso fresco and lime. One of my favorite Mexican dishes.
However, I really loved the cebollitas– pan fried sweet spring onions with a squeeze of lime.
And I couldn’t resist a cup of Agua Fresca- the hibiscus flower tea was powerful and amazing!
And that’s it for me – we still have a few places to check out before we head south. Hope everyone has a great rest of the week and see y’all at the What I Ate Wednesday party over at Peas and Crayons!
