*** A great Sunday was spent at Bass Pro in Denham Springs. We ate at their restaurant Islamorada Fish Company and I must say – we were impressed with the food and the prices weren’t too shabby either. Mmmmmm… the sugar bread was scrumptious.
*** The Hungry Forager in Mandeville is a new eating establishment. Waaaaay cute inside (I haven’t actually eaten there yet – on my to do list)! 902 Coffee St (985) 626-8883. They are open for breakfast and lunch on the weekdays and brunch on the weekend (call for hours). They also have a to go full prepared refrigerator. If you sign up for their e-mail – the menu for the week to come will come to you. For $14 I fed 4 with a spaghetti pie (the kids saw real live tomatoes in there and freaked out) but otherwise liked it!
***The Pizza Man in Covington was everything I hoped it would be! Tom Fitzmorris knows what he is talking about!!! Oh that spinach pizza (I had it without meat) was to die for! I haven’t had a good spinach pizza in forever – and this one was the best! Wash it down with frosty mugs and a pitcher of draft beer with hubby while the rugmonsters were entertained at the window watching the pizza being made – and everybody is happy!!!
***My kids started CAST drama camp today with fellow NOLA.com blogger Jen. The kids went in with hesitation for this 2 week camp that will end with the production of The Wizard of Oz and now they CAN’T WAIT to go back tomorrow. CAST has more camps over the summer – check it out!
***I took a ride down to Reserve while the kids were in camp. I had to drop off some donated items collected by the students at Thomas Jefferson High School in Gretna. I took the items to the almost one year old Southeast Louisiana War Veterans Home. Also got a tour of the facility and was soooooo impressed. State of the art and the staff seemed wonderful!
