Food Review - Hominy Grill

Anyone that knows me knows that I absolutely adore food! Make it tasty and I will try almost anything! And being the Southern Belle that I am...all someone had to do was mention hominy and I knew it would be a winner!

My friend Crystal was recently in Charleston, SC for a conference and she recommended that I try Hominy Grill. Grits. I love grits! I don't know many people that don't love the little grain - or whatever it is :). So I told her that the next time I was in the area I would try it.

Just as it happened...only a few days later I had to take a trip to Charleston for some medical stuff. My mom and I ventured out early that morning, took care of business and were both excited about eating lunch!

The charming restaurant was right around the corner from MUSC (where I had to go) so this pleased me even more!



It was the cutest restaurant that put me in mind of a restaurant I had visited in New Orleans. We got there I think around 12pm and it was already packed to the max. I have no qualms about rubbing elbows with strangers, but my mom isn't quite so comfortable. So if I could have changed anything it would have been the closeness of the seating. I understand they are currently finishing up some renovations at the time of this posting so maybe this is one of the changes? Who cares though...the food still is amazing!

I fought with a couple of different food options and it really took me about 10 minutes to decide what I wanted to eat. But I finally decided on a sandwich. I know what you're thinking...A SANDWICH? But yes. And I do not regret it one bit. It was grilled eggplant, herbed goat cheese with roasted red peppers and grilled red onions. Tasty.


My mom decided to try the "Big Nasty Biscuit" which was a biscuit with a fried chicken breast, cheddar cheese and sausage gravy. Now when I tell you I could have drank a whole pot of that gravy I am NOT exaggerating! It was pretty darn delicious!




Hominy Grill is one of those places that you go to, enjoy the food, and for a non-local like me, you look forward to your next visit. I frequent Charleston and have a little list of favorite restaurants...Hominy Grill is now at the top of the list!

I'm not sure when the restaurant will reopen, but the fan page on Facebook suggests that it will be very soon. I give Hominy Grill 2 thumbs and 2 big toes up! Visit them!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
