Last weekend husband and I and a guy he works with and his wife drove down to Orange Beach. The other couple had a friend working a booth at a Seafood Festival that was taking place - so we visited her at the festival then spent the majority of the day browsing outlets. Oh I love a great outlet mall.
I hate to do too much shopping when with a crowd - cause honestly, I can spend hours in one store and I hate being rushed into purchases. So I kept it simple - one cardigan in J Crew. However, I could have bought everything in there. Husband and I are going to go back down there one weekend and really get some shopping done. By our selves. Or maybe I'll just go. Anyone else like this?
We took a break at lunch and ate at Lambert's Cafe. Have you been to one? Probably not as they are only here and in MO. It was delicious and unique and there should be more of these around this country! They are famous for throwing rolls - yeah, you read that right. Every so often a guy will come to the front of the room and yell, "Hot rolls!" - you raise your hand and a roll comes flying your way. You better hope you're not in the line of fire. I was nervous, but raise my hand - I barely held on to it, thank God for the pinky finger!
It's a huge restaurant.
In addition to the flying rolls, several others walk around to each table dishing out what's called "Pass-arounds." There was fired okra, fried potatoes and onions, macaroni and tomatoes, and apple butter for the rolls, among other side as well. And you get your drink in those huge mugs!
A view from our booth. See the waiter walking this way - he's in jeans, suspenders, and a bow-tie - I loved it!
And this was my meal - which I could barely eat. Let's just say I might have gone overboard with the fried okra and grapefruit-sized rolls. The chicken and pastry was delicious as well as the cucumber and corn. You definitely get more food than you could possibly eat!
Although it's a couple hours away, it is right on the gulf coast and near an outlet mall, so hopefully we get to take our parents one day! I know they all will love it. The atmosphere is great and the food is delicious!
