Lunch Break Re-do

I guess by now we've all come to the realization that Mother Nature has been throwing a bit of a hissy fit this winter, slamming even the warmest environs into freezing wastelands of snow, ice and shoes other than flip flops! This in turn, has lead to major cases of cabin fever. Admittedly, we have been quite spoiled since moving to South Carolina, where the average temperature in December and January is 59 degrees, but that's one of the reasons we came here! More than once, I have been witnessed yelling, "Who moved the South?" Eighteen degrees is far from the expected 59!

With the cold came a dusting of snow and ice and an extra week of Christmas vacation from school! My daughter and I had planned an outing, which had to be postponed until this last Thursday, when we escaped! Yes, we escaped, went AWOL, flew the coop! Our big adventure? Lunch at the Mellow Mushroom! We're such wild ones! LOL!
Moooooooo! Even the menu is fun!

Had we planned earlier, we would have done more, but it was after 12 noon when she mentioned going and the kids get home around 3. It didn't matter. We'd never been there before and it was so good to get out into the sunshine for a little while, even though it was still chilly.

This restaurant is so cute with a lot of colorful decorations, including this round table that encircles an awesome salt water fish tank! There were quite a variety of fish in there, including this cool leopard spotted eel!

The menu was pretty extensive, however, we resisted the pizza, hoagies and calzones for salads. Boring? Oh, far from it! They came in these big read bowls and were made of the freshest veggies! I had a chef salad while Shannon selected the Greek salad with chicken. Oh my gosh! So, so good! I actually like a good salad and I always feel better when I eat fresh foods. We were in yum yum Heaven!
I should have taken a picture before I ate half of it!

We arrived home in time for the kids to get off the bus and made plans for a Friday excursion of larger proportions!

Thanks for dropping by! Y'all have a wonderful weekend! Hugs!
