Our Sunday brunch at Bonefish Grill

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I received a $25 voucher for Sunday brunch at my local Bonefish Grill. Originally I’d planned on taking my foodie friend, but she was ill that day, so it was just me and Baby J.

We started off with complimentary fresh bread and olive oil with herbs. Baby J is a huge fan of dipping food into sauces (or anything, really), so he was excited over this part.

Next, we ordered the famous Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer. This has always been a favorite of mine. I want to note that the sauce on the shrimp tastes to me like it’s mayo-based, so if you don’t like mayo, you may not like this appetizer.

Missing two shrimp from the top right. I pulled them off immediately for Baby J to eat.

For my entrée, I ordered the Cajun shrimp omelette. Besides the shrimp and Creole sauce, it has goat cheese onions, and sweet bell peppers. My dish also included toast and a choice of fresh fruit or potatoes au gratin. I went with the potatoes.

Baby J had pancakes with fresh fruit, syrup, and a glass of white milk.

We had enough food left over to take home with us for later. The portion sizes were generous. I also ordered a macadamia nut brownie with vanilla ice cream to go. The voucher wasn’t enough to cover dessert, so I paid for that out-of-pocket (definitely worth it, yum).

I hate to say this, but the food did not meet the high standard I’ve come to expect from Bonefish Grill. I don’t know if it was the brunch menu or that particular group of kitchen staff or what exactly, but the food tasted mediocre. It just wasn’t very flavorful. The eggs and potatoes both tasted to me like they were out of a box or container. The Creole sauce for my omelette wasn’t at all spicy, which I expect for a Cajun dish. I was disappointed. The brownie was amazing though! Very rich and chocolatey. The fresh, complimentary bread was also good. Since I’ve loved Bonefish Grill for years, I will definitely go back, but I may avoid this location…or that shift, anyway.

If you’ve never been to Bonefish Grill, I encourage you to give it a try. I’ve made some great memories with friends and family at Bonefish Grill. Check and see if your local restaurant is open at 11am on Valentine’s Day! Depending on your area, other local offers may include the Cold Water Catch or Valentine’s Day Prix Fixe Offer.

The Cold Water Catch is available through mid-February. It features healthier, lighter dining options with fresh fish choices. For the Prix Fixe Offer, dinner for two is $29.90 a person. This includes steak, lobster, salad, and dessert to share. This deal is available February 11 to 17.

Note: I received a voucher for a complimentary brunch, but was not otherwise compensated for this post.

*Sponsored Post*

Although the polar vortex may have pushed this thought from our minds, Spring is actually heading our way next month! March 20 is the first day of Spring. With warmer weather comes weddings! Of course people get married year round, but statistics show the most popular month for weddings is June.

If planning a wedding, you’re probably looking for a wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses. Maybe the mother of the bride and mother of the groom still need dresses too. Or maybe you’ve been invited to a wedding, and you’re looking for something new and flattering to wear.

A one-stop shop for special occasion attire, JenJenHouse carries dresses for the entire bridal party as well as accessories, shoes, and even favors for the reception.

Here are some of my top choices for wedding guest dresses. Short and flirty, but still appropriate and flattering for different body types. Some of these styles are available in multiple colors too.

To go with your new dress, you of course need a formal handbag to go with. Check out my picks for evening clutches (some of these are also in multiple colors!):

If you’re not a fan of clutches, there are other handbag styles available like wristlets, cross-body bags, and shoulder bags.

The site is well-organized, and you can easily search for dresses by color, seasons, embellishments, and more. There are similar search options available for the handbags and other accessories. They have headpieces, veils, shoes, and even fancy umbrellas and parasols!

JenJenHouse has weekly sales as well as a section that features dresses under $100. The sales aren’t just for dresses. Find deals on wedding or party favors, accessories, and more.

Whether you’re shopping for a wedding, a prom, or looking for the perfect little black dress, check out JenJenHouse to see the hundreds of styles they have to offer.

Each dress is made to order. Whether you choose a standard size or submit your custom measurements, your dress will be tailored after you order. When you order, take into account tailoring, processing, and shipping time. Fortunately, JenJenHouse has a guide to explain how it all works. They’ll even ship internationally!

The benefits of #Amacari in your diet. #CamuCamu #SuperFruit

*Sponsored Post*

Although I’ve seen the word Amacari in advertising for a couple years now, I only recently learned exactly where it comes from and what it can do. Amacari is a supplement that comes from South American camu camu berries. Camu camu was recently hailed by the Dr. Oz Show online as potentially being the “…missing fountain of youth.”

According to the same Dr. Oz blog post, camu camu contains numerous essential vitamins, including the highest known amount of naturally-occurring Vitamin C. Because of this, camu camu is rich in antioxidants, and studies suggest it has anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effects. Iron, niacin, riboflavin, phosphorus, potassium, beta-carotene, calcium, and amino acids can all be found in camu camu.

Camu camu is also known to give natural energy boosts and improve focus.

The fruit itself is sour, which is why other forms, like Amacari pills, are so popular. In Amacari, the whole fruit is picked raw and powdered through a special method to preserve the nutrients. The entire berry (skin, pulp, and seed) is encapsulated. Amacari is organic, non-GMO, GMP-compliant, vegan, gluten-free, and kosher!
