Have You Been to the Marietta Diner?

Hey Y’all, have you ever been to a place to eat that just blows your mind? I’m talking about blown in a good way. Well let me tell you about my experience at the Marietta Diner in Marietta, Georgia.

Plan some time when you decide to geaux…it’s a lot to take in. From the outside it looks like what a diner should look like…but when you walk in, you realize it’s more than just a diner. Oh yeah, this is going to be an experience….quite possibly like none other.

The menu is extensive…you want steak, they have it, you want Mexican, they have it, you want Mediterranean, they have it…so ya get the picture? I mean there is everything on the menu…except the kitchen sink. But I bet of there was a way to serve the kitchen sink that was tasty, they could do it.

Sooo, here’s what we had…my hubby got the Greek Gyro plate, that came with a salad and fries. I had the steamed veggies. And let me tell ya, both dishes were so good. I think you can see that from the pictures….can we say Yummo?

BUT….here’s the piece de resistance….it’s their desert counter….they have so many different cakes…no less than 25 different varieties…more I think, but I was so overwhelmed.  And cookies…I’m talking huge cookies!.  I love cakes…and cookies. There were so many to chose from…and sadly on this day…I didn’t get any…was way too full from my meal. So I think the next time I’m in town, I’ll surely be headed over to the diner, but I’m getting dessert first!

Where’s your favorite place to eat? What’s your favorite dish? Are you a cake and cookies for dessert? Or pie?

Until next time, Blessings and Bubbles,

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil

What can I say, we LOVE our Coconut oil.  There is beauty in coconut oil.  Coconut oil is extracted from the meat of the coconut. Coconut oil has been used for centuries.  It seems to have really surfaced lately as the magic cure all.

Now, I don’t disagree that it is helpful for a ton of uses, I have yet to not find something that it is good for.  But what we love about our Coconut oil is how it creates an incredible lather for our bar soap, and also adds to the hardness of the bar.  Not only that, but it helps to moisturize the skin, without that drying feeling.

I found some really interesting uses for Coconut oil that I’ll share:

Bath time – add a generous scoop of Coconut oil to a bath and soak in its moisturizing benefits.  To make it even better add some Epsom salts, and your favorite essential oil and just relax the day away.

Scratchy throat – forget the cough drops, next time soothe a sore throat by swallowing a bit of Coconut oil on its own or adding it to your tea.

Cooking – Coconut oil is great for high heat, like stir fry.  It’s got a high smoke point so it won’t emit free radicals as some other oils do.

Stuck zipper – coat the zipper with coconut oil and they should work fine.

Take some time and just google all the uses for Coconut oil…because this by no means is a complete list, just a few of the things that I found. #IBN30
