Egg white omelets and eating at Paula's for breakfast
Last week we had the opportunity to have breakfast at a Paula Deen restaurant. It was both good and bad. The food was tasty but I am here to tell you that the amount of butter being used in the food was unbelievable. I know that butter tastes good and the food was somewhat above par for a breakfast buffet. Healthy? Not even close -- and we had egg white omelets -- cooked right before us.
The photo above was of my husband's plate. I had half a very tasty muffin, an egg white omelet and fruit. The photo of his plate was better and I think it does look good.
I did make a couple of discoveries. I had always thought egg white omelets were very bland and unappetizing, but the omelet in the center of the photo had egg whites, fresh spinach and mushrooms. I could do that quite easily. My first discovery -- I like egg white omelets and I will make them at home from time to time.
My second discovery -- if I have a chance to eat at Ladies and Sons, Paula Deen's restaurant in Savannah, I will save my calories and eat there because it is a real treat. If I have the opportunity to go to a Paula Deen breakfast buffet rather than eat fast food I might choose the fast food. It was better than some breakfast buffets but it really didn't knock my socks off. Sorry Paula.
