If there’s one thing I can tell you about myself on this rainy morning, it would be, I like Breakfast food. There, I said it. This coming from the person who is not now nor has ever been a morning person. I seriously can’t tell you my favorite breakfast food either. I like biscuits and gravy, I like omelets, I like pancakes, I just like breakfast food and sometimes it is difficult to go eat breakfast and make up my mind what I really want. I’m glad we got that out of the way :).
I woke up this morning and laid in bed watching it storm like crazy. Last weekend we were under flash river flood warnings and this weekend we are too. The only difference is we live on top of a hill here and last weekend we were camping at the Trails for Kids held at Crag O’Lea in Pineville, MO.
My husband Mark and I along with a bunch of our friends are on the Trails for Kids committee so we started camping on Wednesday evening so that we could be there to help check people in. Little did we know what our weekend was going to have in store for us. WOW!
But Thursday morning we woke up and we were all hungry so we decided to drive into Pineville and eat breakfast at the Pineville Grill.
The Pineville Grill
As I said, the girl who isn’t a morning person likes her breakfast food! This was an omelet that had pretty much everything. eggs, bacon, sausage (although I had them hold the sausage), ham, cheese, onions, bell peppers, and more cheese. Mine came with a side of either toast or biscuits and gravy or something else… I went for the biscuits and gravy. I’m actually glad I did because my darling little ate quite a bit of my biscuits and gravy. Apparently she’s a biscuits and gravy fan too.
She also likes pancakes so that’s what we ordered her. She even got it in the shape of Mickey Mouse… one of her favorites. Now, this wasn’t a bad pancake but it wasn’t my favorite either. Yes, I tried a bite. It wasn’t nearly as sweet as normal pancakes. Like I said, not terrible but not the best either.
Mark and Jared got something called Skuttle Browns. It was a skillet that had hashbrowns and cheese and sausage and ham and eggs your way. They also got pancakes as aside. They weren’t impressed with their pancakes either. I didn’t try a bite of theirs… I didn’t need to, I could eat the little’s if I wanted pancakes. Hey, she was eating my biscuits and gravy.
Other than that, I’m not sure what else to tell you. I like breakfast food but we already established that. Today is another soggy wet day and we’re under another flood watch, maybe even warning now. Luckily we live on a hill, so we just have to worry about the bottom of our driveway because like the olden day phrase, I walked uphill both ways to school, I really did. down the hill to go up it to meet the bus then down the hill to go up back to the house. Does that make me old? Just a thought…
