Southern Grubbin'

Greetings from Kennesaw, Georgia!! The Bar Mitzvah celebrations are under way and we have been enjoying every minute of it.

Tuesday night before we left, we went to Casa de Bandini for dinner. I ordered the carne asada plate.

Wednesday morning we left early for our flight. I ate some peanut butter crackers on the way to the airport. I ate some random stuff on the plane but was saving up for the main event at my brother in law's house in Kennesaw: Big Pie in the Sky Pizza!

It's hard to tell from the photo but the size of this pizza is insane.

 This is a 30 inch pizza. Crazy!!

After dinner, we checked into our hotel and called it a night.

Thursday mooring we slept past breakfast. Definitely still on pacific coast time. We went to lunch at Taco Mac.  I ordered the fish tacos.

Not bad. I didn't end up eating the rice and beans but instead I some of my kids' french fries with a mixture of ranch and hot wing sauce. Now, that's what I'm taking about.

Later that evening we all went to the Braves vs Pirates baseball game. The Braves ended up losing but we had a great time anyway! I didn't eat anything at the ballpark because I was saving myself for hot wings at Taco Mac!

They aren't as good as my hot wings but they did the job.

Yesterday's breakfast was at the hotel restaurant. I had a an omelet loaded with veggies.

We headed to the marina for a day of boating and tubing. My husband was the captain of our boat.

The kids road on the tube behind the boat and had a blast. On the way back, we picked up pizza slices for lunch.

Last night we had a huge family dinner at Provino's Italian Restaurant. Our meal started with their amazing house salad:

Followed by the most amazing garlic rolls you've ever had.

They are literally swimming in garlic butter. Heaven.

We had a set menu for our event. There were several delicious choices but I settled on the lasagna.

Mmmm. Good choice!

We had several choices for dessert. I tried the tiramisu and chocolate cake.

They tasted great together.

Breakfast this morning was a repeat of yesterday but with potatoes this time.

We went to the Bar Mitzvah services, then headed to Tin Lizzy's Cantina for some Mexican food. We shared some chips, guacamole, salsa and queso dip:

I ordered a fajita steak taco and fish taco:

Both were awesome.

Tonight is the big Bar Mitzvah celebration and then we are headed back to San Diego early tomorrow morning. Feels like we just got here!

What was the best thing you ate all weekend?
