Vacation Eats: The Moose Cafe

Vacation Eats: The Moose Cafe

Hello, hello everyone! When it comes to family vacations, my dad is the king of planning. From activities and shops to hikes and the best restaurants in the area, he spends time scouring the internet and travel books for stops to make for the ultimate vacation. While in Asheville, North Carolina for our vaca, we had dinner at The Moose Cafe after shopping a charming little farmers market right down the street. Although the menu wasn’t the most vegetarian friendly, I still managed and ended up with a massive plate o’ carbs. Check it out:


^^^ Awwww yeahhhhh

During one of our previous trips to Asheville, we had breakfast at The Moose Cafe and that was really crazy good. And, despite only having one option to eat for dinner, it was still really crazy good. I was able to pick four side dishes to form one mega meal and went with the cheesy grits, mashed potatoes, mac n’ cheese, and French fries as well as a slice of cornbread. As if that wasn’t enough carbohydrates for ya, don’t even get me started on the pre-meal biscuits and apple butter. YUM!

From a health perspective, this might not have been the best meal. But, from a “I was super hungry” perspective, this meal fucking SLAPPED. The biscuits were huge, soft, and fluffy. They literally melted in your mouth with a butter and honey finish. And, committing even more carbicide on the main course was just what I needed after a long day.

Some of the sides were definitely better than the others and I have them ranked in the following order:

  1. French fries
  2. Cheesy grits
  3. Mashed potatoes
  4. Mac n’ cheese

However, once I had them reheated as leftovers, they all tasted really freaking good! Funny how that works out!

What is your favorite spot for breakfast in your neck of the woods? Where do you like to eat if you are vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, etc.? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

No Complaints! Shocker!

No Complaints! Shocker!

Howdy everyone and happy Tuesday! I’m currently shoveling pasta salad down my gullet at a rapid speed as I type this and with a belly full of carbs and lots of awesome things happening, I must say, I have No Complaints! Shocking, I know, but things in my so called life are finally starting to look up for Lil Red and it’s about damn time! Let’s discuss the three major events that are making me a very happy bitch (four, if you count the pasta salad that I’m eating.):

I love school!!! There are very few things that I can pin point and say “that was one of the best decisions of my life” and starting college at Tri-C is definitely one of them. My motivation to succeed in my classes is something that I’ve shocked myself with time and time again. I can’t remember one time in my educational career prior to starting at Tri-C where I was a “star student”. I never studied. Never did homework. Skipped school as often as I could. Blatantly didn’t give a fuck. But in college it’s so different. I study my ass off. I make homework my number one priority. I get genuinely pissed on the occasion where I have to miss school from being sick. I care more than I ever thought was possible. My fall semester has started out fantastically and I can’t wait to keep on plugging away at my Associate Of Arts degree!

lifewithlilred has been hoppin! I have been so blown away with how much love that my little blog baby has received these past few months! My reader map has expanded tenfold and my amount of followers and likes have increased exponentially. On top of all of the beautiful readers who I have that I don’t have the pleasure of knowing, people in my own social circle have taken interest as well. I have been so touched by the amount of friends who have reached out to me to let me know how much they like my blog. I am also so humbled to have artists that I personally look up to asking me to write for them on my page. There are SO many fun posts and ideas that will be happening on lifewithlilred, so as always, stay tuned for the latest and greatest!

I have an awesome boyfriend! I mean, that statement basically speaks for itself, but yeah – Kyle is great and I’m a very lucky girl! HOLLA! Now cue the ironic choice in music:

^^^ It seemed appropriate!

So yes, things are going just swell and I really have No Complaints! I’m happy and I don’t say that very often so my only hope now is that I don’t end up jinxing myself! How is everyone’s week going so far? Who has some complaints that they need to vent about? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
