Sizzle: A Restaurant Review

Hey people!
I hope your week is starting off better than mine (work woes)...but on a high note, I have a restaurant review for you! I tried to score a gift card to giveaway...but that didn't happen.

Usually I stay away from new restaurants for at least a month. Or two. What's my issue? I hate kinks. Like really hate kinks. Especially for non-chain establishments that are just kicking off. But one of my gal pals posted a link to this place before they opened and I knew it would be right up my alley.

The name of the restaurant is Sizzle and it is "A Bacon Eatery!" As much as I try to cut back on pork (and beef), I don't think I will EVER quit bacon. Like never. I don't eat it as much as I used to but man, I loves me some bacon! So needless to say, this place wasn't open a good two weeks before I made my way there. The circumstances that got me there are a little shady, but I went nonetheless.

A few friends and I decided to head on over and give it a go...all equal bacon lovers. I must say, overall, I was impressed. There were a few kinks but not enough for me to say I'm never going back. And I'm sure those minor issues will be worked out soon, if they haven't already been worked out.

One of the things that I loved was that the owner came out and introduced himself and he walked around to check on things. Now this may be because I told him I was going to blog about my experience, but I'd like to hope that it is his norm.

It's a quaint little place located in 5 Points here in Columbia. I see another visit in my near future. The waitresses were friendly and the drinks were awesome. See below for what we had for dinner.

Peachy Lemonade

Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog w/ Bacon Pimento Cheese

Even the pickles were yummy...Hey Grasshopper!

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp and Grits

Bacon Split

Bacon Cheesecake
Overall, everything was enjoyed. I usually don't drink during the week (or on the weekend for that matter lol) but the waitress kept insisting I try the Peachy Lemonade. It didn't disappoint! The highlight for me, however, was the dessert. We shared both...but I could have easily devoured them both on my own in one sitting. The cheesecake was something they were just trying out, but I would scream to them "LEAVE IT ON THE MENU!" For real.

So, hats off to Sizzle for showing us a bacon good time! Y'all go try it and let me know what you think!

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 c

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 W

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 s
