Oh hi! I haven’t blogged in a hot minute, in fact, it’s been about seven months to be exact. It would be awkward of me to just drop in an do a review of a restaurant when I’ve been mia, so I’ll start with a super short little life update. George is now 3 and wicked smart and vivacious, and Lily is almost 8 months old and absolutely adorable and sweet, and one horrible little sleeper lol. I am happy, busy, exhausted, and bursting with love for those babes. And tired. Did I say that already? I do intend to get back to blogging at some point, but right now my hands are pretty full with working full time and keeping up with the two adorable little munchkins.
But back to the restaurant review… about two months ago, I was invited to do a review for a new restaurant that was coming to Augusta in mid October. As a blogger (even one who’s admittedly D list and pretty much mia) from time to time you receive emails from companies offering to send you product or compensation and the likes in exchange for a blog post. Sometimes it’s downright shady companies, sometimes it’s semi-decent stuff, and other (less frequent) times it’s with a company that makes you automatically shoot back an email back stating “yes, when can we get the ball rolling!!?” This time was definitely the latter. One thing that I never have a problem divulging to people is my love of food. And the premise of Metro Diner sounded right up my alley…delicious food made from scratch daily, oh, and they serve breakfast all day! The Jacksonville, FL location has even been featured on one of my favorite Food Network shows, Diners Drive Ins and Dives.
Anyways, Geordie and I set a date to have dinner there on a random weeknight (our first date night in almost 5 months I might add.) and off we went. We decided that we (well mostly me) would have a cheat night on our diets, and just enjoy ourselves. In keeping with the cheat night, we ordered the chicken and waffles, and the diablo burger. The diablo burger is a big ole burger sandwiched between two grilled cheeses filled with a hefty dose of bacon, tomatoes, and oozy cheese. Just thinking about it gets me hungry. Geordie and I both agreed thought that our favorite of the two was the chicken and waffles. The chicken and waffles came with an entire half fried chicken, fluffy belgian waffles, and an awesome strawberry cream cheese butter spread. That was hands down the best chicken and waffles I’ve ever had, and Geordie declared the fried chicken the best he’s ever had. We were embarrassingly a part of the clean plate club that night.
Thanks for stopping by!
