Memorial Day at Mimis

Filed under: ashley — Ashley @ 3:53 pm

Instead of the proverbial BBQ in the backyard, this Memorial Day I celebrated with a delicious breakfast at this great place called Mimis Café.

My mother, fiancé, and I all hopped in the car and headed to Mimis.  The restaurant was absolutely gorgeous with indoor and outdoor seating.  Its quaint European theme, with a touch of jazzy Mardi Gras décor made for a wonderful atmosphere.

The menu at Mimis is severely extensive to say the least.  They serve breakfast 24 hours a day (my favorite), and also have a great lunch, dinner, dessert, and drink menu.

I got cream cheese and marmalade stuffed French Toast topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberry compote.  It came with a side of eggs and plump grilled sausages.  My mother ordered the turkey club, which seems to be a Mimis favorite since I saw several other tables order the same thing.  It’s kind of hard to miss the turkey club pass through the restaurant because it’s absolutely huge.  Six quarter slices filled to the brim with fresh sliced turkey, lettuce, tomato, and bacon, served with your choice of side.  My fiancé got the Cajun style chicken sausage (delicious with the perfect amount of spice) and home-style potatoes and eggs.  Mom and fiancé also got Mimosa’s served with sparkling wine; strawberry and original respectively.  The meal was awesome to say the least, and the prices were quiet reasonable.

Mimis Café is a nationwide restaurant, so check out their website (they even share a few of their great recipes on it), find a location near you, and stop in for a bite.  You’ll thank me for it!

That’s it for me, until next time…

Great American Bake Sale

Filed under: ashley, great causes — Ashley @ 2:44 pm

Everyone loves a good old fashion bake sale, so why not have one and support a worthy cause all at the same time?

Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale is a national campaign that works to end childhood hunger through volunteers that hold bake sales in their own communities.  Over the last five years, more than 1-million people have donated their bake sale proceeds to the campaign to help the 12-million children in America who are at risk of hunger.

All of the information you need to host your own bake sale on behalf of Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale can be found on their website.  There, you’ll also find statistics about the child-hunger epidemic and how this program is working to put an end to it, as well as tips on how to organize a successful bake sale.

Events like these are also a great way to get your kids involved.  They can help out in the kitchen with all those yummy baked goods, be an extra hand at the actual bake sale, and it’s also a fun way to teach children about the value of helping people in need.

If you’ve already got a bake sale scheduled on your calendar such as for your church, school, or neighborhood, consider donating your usual profits to Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale.  Just like the slogan says, “Ending Childhood Hunger Can Be A Piece of Cake”.

That’s it for me, until next time…
