Wanna know our secret?

We are often asked how we find all of these restaurants that we visit. Well it’s really not a secret. Let’s talk about the different ways that we find these places. Social Media – we are always watching social media feeds for posts about restaurants, both new and new to us. We are members of…

Go Where the Road Takes You!

I had heard about a new consignment store opening in Oneonta, AL. Friends had been posting on Facebook about the shirts they have in their booth. So we went opening weekend to check it out. We went on Sunday afternoon and shopped at the store. We found that most things in the small town are…

Authentic Mexican

We recently visited a new restaurant in Leeds, AL that is an authentic Mexican restaurant. It is called Taqueria La Juanita. We had looked at the menu online beforehand, but really didn’t know what to expect. Jeff had a quesadilla and I had tacos. I was halfway thru my meal when I realized that the…

Mango’s Cantina & Grill

Another Mexican restaurant has recently opened in Leeds, AL. This one has opened in a place that several other restaurants have been in that haven’t stayed. I really hope that this one stays open as the food was good. We went on a Friday night and since we had worked late we had to wait…

No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

One of my favorite cookies is the oatmeal no bake cookies. I sometimes buy them in the deli section of the grocery store. I don’t buy them often because Jeff doesn’t like them and I eat them all myself. During the holidays I made them to take to Christmas with my family. They were of…

Buc-ee’s!!

The 2nd Buc-ee’s has opened in Alabama. This one is located in central Alabama right outside Birmingham in the city of Leeds. Have you visited yet?? We’ve seen a lot of posts on social media of visits that have been made. The store is 53,250 square feet. There are 120 gas pumps. They have large…

Barbecue Stop

With Covid-19 it’s been awhile since we tried a new restaurant. But we have tried to get back to finding new restaurants, working thru our list of places that we’ve yet to visit. We have had the Barbecue Stop at Clay on our list for quite some time. We decided on a VERY cold Saturday…

The Casual Pint

Recently while in the Hoover area we saw a place at The Grove shopping area that we added to our list of places to try. We decided recently to give them a try. Turns out this is more of a pub/bar than a restaurant. They don’t have sweet tea other than possibly in a bottle…

Alabama vs. Kentucky- Covid style

We attended the Alabama vs. Kentucky football game. We were a little concerned about going, just because we weren’t sure what to expect with social distancing. We had heard about the changes, but until you experience them for yourself you’re never really sure. So we started our day out with a stop at Deep Roots…

Get Outside – Southeast Alabama

We took a trip to Dothan, AL in August to be with the family. While there we decided to take a trip to the Eufaula Wildlife Refuge. Well it turned out to be an eventful trip. We weren’t sure where we are going so we put it in the maps on one of our phones…
