Lunch at Edgar’s Grille

I finally made it to Edgar’s Grille for lunch the other day. What a treat! Great service and good food.

I had the Korean Beef and my friend Greg had the Shrimp Po Boy. The Korean Beef was a perfect lunch serving with a good mix of salty and sweet.

Greg said the sandwich was very tasty with super fresh bread. He also commented on the unique way to serve the fries (in a glass) and that it was just the right amount.

For dessert, I had to try the bread pudding. It is really hard for me to say no to a dessert that is served on fire.

Makin’ Faces at Tire City Potters

Have you ever heard of a face jug? I hadn’t. At least, not until the folks over at Tire City Potters taught my coworkers and I how to make one!

Shishir, Sydney and Harrison were so friendly and such good teachers!

Before and after of my face jug. It was inspired by a drawing that hung on the wall!

Everyone's jugs turned out very differently and really showed off our personalities.

Making the face jugs only took two(ish) hours for us. The total time pretty much depends on your group and how detailed you want to be! Afterwards, they glaze and fire the face jug for you and you get to keep it! The glaze/fire process takes a few days. So now it feels like the week before Christmas – I just can’t wait to see how it turns out!

Tire City Potters is right across the street from Rooster's Beak and The Bee's Knees on 10th Street downtown.

I’m already making plans to go back – TO SHOP! They’ve got lots of glazed pottery (think coffee mugs, bowls, vases, and vessels) along with local art for sale. I can think of a few of my friends and family who would LOVE to get locally made pottery as a gift, but I’ve gotta be honest – some of it will probably end up living at my house!

Farmhaus Milkshakes Bring All The Foodies To The Yard

Who doesn’t love a good milkshake? I know I do. I’m not talking about the watered down, artificially flavored, syrup laden mess you get from a fast food chain.

I’m talking about  a real, honest-to-goodness shake. And that’s what you get at Farmhaus Burgers! (I don’t have enough time to talk about their locally sourced, beefy awesomeness. But if you haven’t tried it – believe me when I say you will not be disappointed. And what goes better with a shake than a burger?)

The two shakes you see before you are, in a word, epic. The shake to the right is the Shake of the Month: Titan Farms Peach & Caramel Milkshake. It’s made from local peaches and is sweet, a little salty from the caramel and has little bits of juicy peach that pop up and surprise you. It’s only available this August, so you have to plan a visit this month if you want to try it! The shake to the left is the Nana’s Pudding. It’s a boozy shake that magically tastes like the most legit liquid banana pudding you will ever try. It has Banana Rum, Irishman Irish Cream and little bites of crunchy vanilla wafer. The Nana’s Pudding shake is part of the regular drink/shake menu. If you’re craving a fun adult beverage you should definitely give this a try. Find them on Facebook at: Facebook.com/FarmhausBurger.

The Donut Hole

We love donuts! And really, who doesn’t? Rather than argue whether Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Donuts is better – check out The Donut Hole – a locally owned donut shop right across the river in North Augusta. Just add coffee and voila! – you’ve got breakfast.

If you have not been…run…don’t walk!  It’s a super cute little donut bakery on Martintown Road in North Augusta that makes the best donuts around hands down!

I bought one of the Augusta Chronicle Daily Deals a while back and just have not been able to get there in time before they close.  The day I went, I had an early morning errand to run and since it was national Donut day, The Donut Hole was also on my list.  I had my two little ones with me and of course we can’t go anywhere without them wanting to check out a bathroom (or two) and, of course, they always choose the most inopportune times.  The owner was kind enough to allow us to use his “not public restroom” in the back of the store and we were able to get a quick glimpse of the kitchen, which was spotlessly clean and sparkling (something about a grungy space makes me not want to eat there no matter how awesome the food is).  We didn’t get there until 10:30 and he still had a good variety freshly stocked and waiting for us.  I normally stick with my regular blueberry cake donut and the kids get their sprinkles, but since we had a full dozen to pick out with our certificate, we chose an assortment of donuts.  The kids still loved the sprinkle, but my favorites were the vanilla iced and strawberry filled donut and the apple str…yum, yum!!

My two complaints: 1. They are so stinkin’ good that you can’t eat just one…2. The only location is in North Augusta which is too far away from me to go for breakfast EVERY DAY!  I guess those two complaints work hand in hand then…since I can’t eat just one, I probably should not be eating them every day anyways!  If you get a chance to stop in and order one or a dozen, you will not be disappointed!!
