Weekly Photo Challenge (Morning)

On Sunday, (after the fabulous and very satisfying breakfast at the Royal Palm Grill) i decided to take a drive over to the Fruit & Spice Park. Since we were already in the Homestead area, i figured, why not take advantage of a few neat places the city has to offer.  After all, the park is the only Tropical Botanical Gardens of it’s kind in the entire United States and hosts over 500 varieties of fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs and spices. This is definitely MY KINDA PLACE…. http://fruitandspicepark.org/friends/

Good morning (yawn.....)

Using the rainy season to my advantage

Breakfast in a pharmacy…who knew?

For several months now, my Mom has been trying to convince me to try the breakfast down at the Royal Palm Grill in Homestead. Mom is convinced they have the best grits in town, so with that…i finally decided to give it a shot. Now keep in mind, my breakfast partner is quite fussy (as am i, when it comes to food)…ok and men!  So, she was a bit shocked to find out that our little breakfast place was situated inside the Rexall Pharmacy. Yes, we literally waited for a table on aisle 1 next to the “disposable adult undergarments”…laughing all the while. Not too hard though, as we realized we might actually need these items some day. ZIPES!!! If you’ve never been down to the Homestead area, it’s quite different from the rest of Miami…very umm…country. Yes, as in everyone drives a pick-up truck – it might even be a prerequisite! We are seated and our coffee arrives (at this point i get a little nervous because b.p. is very picky about her coffee and it’s definitely not the best). Now we order: b.p. decides she will try the eggs and ham (sans the green) and i go for one of the specials, corn-flake crusted french toast, 2 eggs scrambled with cheese, bacon and OF COURSE, we both order a side of grits 🙂  The food was T.D.F. (to die for)…grits were delicious, just as Mama said they would be. Generous portions, also…b.p.’s ham was so big that it took up the entire plate it was served on! I can’t wait to go back there…even b.p. enjoyed it 😉
