Becoming a Regular Part 2 – Petra Cafe Greek & Mediterranean

“I could eat there every day and get the same thing” – Zach I am truly enjoying becoming a part of Hattiesburg and learning more about the people and culture here.  Before I visited, I had no real idea what to expect from Mississippi or the South.  My only reference was movies, the media and […]

Becoming a Regular Part 1 – Town Square Cafe & Bakery

I have officially been in Hattiesburg for three months and I’m starting to get a better feel for the city.  I don’t feel like a tourist or an outsider on a regular basis, especially now that I have settled into a routine with a job.  I slowly feel like I am becoming part of the […]

Happy 2018: New Year’s Lunch at GrateFull Soul

Happy New Year everyone!  Sorry we have been out of the writing game for a little while.  Between job hunting and holiday events, there were other things to focus on for a bit.  We’ve ate at some great restaurants over the past few months, so we have plenty to talk about. GrateFull Soul was open […]

Saturday in Downtown Laurel, MS

This past Saturday we ventured 35 minutes north to Laurel, Mississippi.  Zach and I had been wanting to visit downtown Laurel and noticed there was a Christmas market going on hosted by The Market Beautiful.  There were vendors from all over the South selling vintage, refurbished, and handmade items of all kinds.  Another big selling […]

Mid-Month Catch Up (Nov. 2017)

New City. New Food. New Fun!

We try to cook a lot of our food and we meal prep, but we also love to try restaurants.  Since I am in a new city I definitely want to make sure I am trying out restaurants every week.  There is no lack of places to try or things to do in Hattiesburg so […]

Meal Prep Fun & Curry Recipe

Zach and I usually don’t plan out what we want to eat for the week until Sunday morning. Although we use similar ingredients on a regular basis, our creations are a different every week because we play around with spices and flavors. After breakfast on Sunday morning, we often come up with a menu for […]

Arctic Ape Wild Desserts

I mentioned in my last post that Zach and I love ice cream and frozen yogurt.  It is, by far, our favorite dessert.  We have tried many different places in San Antonio and while traveling.  Our newest favorite in San Antonio is a self-service dessert store, Arctic Ape Wild Desserts on Walzem Road.  They have […]

San Diego Made My Belly Happy

A few weeks ago, Zach and I visited San Diego, California for our summer vacation.  We had planned our trip around Fourth of July because we love fireworks and dressing up in red, white and blue everything.  San Diego has one of the largest Independence Day firework shows in the country, Big Bay Boom, which […]
