Vacations All About the Food ; )

Hubby and I just returned from a week's vacation to St Simon's Island Georgia our favorite place. While we were down there we decided to take advantage and visit The Holy Land Experience in Orlando FL.
I will blog about that later but for now this is all about the food ! hah

We went to breakfast at Cat Cora's restaurant in Orlando FL on the Disney Boardwalk.
It was so delicious. I loved how it was decorated - it was first class. It is called Kouzzina it is a Mediterranean restaurant - don't let the Pizza sign below fool you.

 Here's hubby and I at breakfast. Right behind us is the huge kitchen. Gary dreams of a kitchen like that one day.  Me  - - not so much ! hah

Blueberry-Lemon Pancakes with Granola & warm Maple Syrup and Chicken Sausage.
This is what I had. They were delcious. You could taste so much lemon in the pancakes - so good.
It was one huge pancake on the plate.

 Then we just had to grab dinner one of the nights at our Joe's Crab Shack. We sort of have a thing going . . .
we are trying to visit them all -  hah  So far we've been to Joe's in New Jersey, Colorado, Delaware, San Antonio TX and now add Orlando FL . . . It is such a fun place with good food. The waiters in this location were crazy . . .dancing on the tables doin' Car Wash  oh oh oh Car Wash Yeah . . .

 Here's my hubby in his glory.  Give him seafood and he is a happy, happy man !

This is what he always orders - Low Country Boil . . . this photo is 1/3 eaten - should have gotten it when it was full to the top  . . . potato's, sausage, corn, onions, king crab legs, shrimp, muscles, clams . . .

We also visited a place recommended by Guy Fieri on Triple D . . . Blackwater Grill in St Simons Island Georgia.
It was fantastic.  I had the Tybee Shrimp.  A generous portion of large shrimp, grilled, served with a creole remoulade and tartar sauce, with a choice of two side dishes.  And hubby had - you guessed it Low Country Boil . . .

Our final dinner was at The Crab House in Orlando FL. Another great place.

They had a seafood bar that was endless . . .

We also enjoyed a place called Barbara Jean's in St Simons Island. It is real home cooking. I had meatloaf that was to die for and their sides were so unusal.  Don't get those in NJ. Ambrosia Salad, Squash Casserole, Cooked Cabbage, Stewed Tomatos, Red Beans & Rice. 

I'll be adding another post soon on The Holy Land Experience.  

We did do more on vacation then EAT ! hah
