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.


  1. That photo looks good! Where is the Paula Deen's Restaurant? Might be fun to try it.
    Thanks for sharing, Joanie

  2. I ate at Paula's restaurant in Savannah a few years ago and it was very good. Unfortunately, I remember overeating and feeling miserable afterwards! All that butter, I guess ...

  3. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never sbobet
    seem to get there! Many thanks.
