The Big Green Egg – The grill that can make anything

The Big Green Egg - The Grill That Can Make Anything

 

Before my trip to Florida and Tuckaway Shores I had heard of The Big Green Egg.  Actually my step-dad has been dreaming of one for a while!  He loves going to events where chefs cook on the grill and he always comes home with another 15 reasons why he must get one.

I however have never gotten the chance to experience the Big Green Egg myself so I was pretty excited to have a dinner prepared by professional Egg Heads!

When we got back from the Brevard Zoo we were greeted by some music and saw the Egg Heads hard at work.

Before I go on I should say that the Big Green Egg is not just a grill.  It’s a grill, smoker and oven all combined.

It is an American designed ceramic cooker that was derived from an ancient clay cooking device known as a ‘kamado’.

You could tell that each of the chefs took such pride in their food and they were really passionate about it.  We all really appreciated their hard work for preparing this feast for us!

All of the food that the Egg Heads made …. spectacular!  This was a really creamy and delicious baked macaroni and cheese.

I’m normally not a duck fan, but this marinated duck breast and arugula salad was really good!

The steak was so tender and juicy and oh geez.  It was just delicious.

They also had crab meat with broccoli and it was beyond good.

And dessert.  I wish I would have gotten a photo of dessert but to be honest, I gobbled it up.  I’m pretty sure most of the bloggers ate it pretty quickly too!  They made Banana Foster and it was my first time having it.  I have to say, I can’t wait to have it again.

I now know what the talk is all about!  I have to admit, my step-dad was absolutely right.  He needs a Big Green Egg.  And I’ll be there often for dinner! :)

A Visit To Port Canaveral

Why You Should Visit The Port Canaveral Exploration Tower In Florida

 

Did you know that Port Canaveral is the second busiest port in the world?  Soon, they are saying it will overtake Miami and become the most popular!  During our Tuckaway Shores trip we stopped by the new Port Canaveral Exploration Tower to experience all 7 levels and learned about what is to come for this popular area!

Why You Should Visit The Port Canaveral Exploration Tower In Florida

 

The first thing you notice when you walk inside is a massive display of art.  There are whales, dolphins, and jellyfish that are hung.  It’s a really gorgeous display but the coolest thing about it is that this art work is made out of trash that would otherwise clutter the beach and water.

Why You Should Visit The Port Canaveral Exploration Tower In Florida

 

We started on the 7th floor and went out on the observation deck.  This is such a beautiful place to be standing!  If you are local, it would also be an amazing place to watch a shuttle launch!   That’s right!  Not too far off is where they do them and you can have the best seat in the house, right here.

The Exploration Tower is also a great place to rent out for events or business meetings.  They also have begun to do live concerts and shows.  I would think that the 4th of July would be a pretty spectacular show from right here.

Why You Should Visit The Port Canaveral Exploration Tower In Florida

 

I’ve never been on a cruise and I’ve never been this close to a cruise ship.  I knew they were large, but I had no idea that they were this big!  You can hang out and watch the cruise ships come in and out and it’s really neat.  Everyone is standing outside, waving and it’s really a fun thing to witness!

Why You Should Visit The Port Canaveral Exploration Tower In Florida

 

The boats are really amazing to watch!

Inside you can explore the other levels of the Port Canaveral Exploration Center.  Each floor has a theme and is full of really neat information and lots of interactive learning experiences.

Why You Should Visit The Port Canaveral Exploration Tower In Florida

 

It makes for a really fun and exciting place for the kids to come and learn.  I know my son would love to try steering the boat in the simulator!

Port Canaveral is a really neat place and they have a lot of plans on how to make it even better.  If you are sailing out of the port or if you are in Florida visiting you really need to make sure to stop by the Exploration Tower!  There is a lot of history and interesting things to learn about this area!

Host A Family Dance Party


Just Dance 2015 Video Game Review Hosting A Dance Party

 

It’s November and already bitter cold in Indiana.  Colder than we are used to right now!  And while we aren’t getting 6 feet of snow (thank goodness!) we have been getting some.  I’m not sure if it’s because I just got back from Florida or jut because we usually don’t get snow this early, but I am not ready!! At all!

So what are you going to do when it’s too cold to go outside?  Well there really is only one thing you can do…

Just Dance 2015 Video Game Review Hosting A Dance Party

I was so glad that I had received the new Just Dance 2015 video game in the mail to review.  Can you say perfect timing?  We have had Just Dance video games before and they have always been a hit.  It’s a great way for the whole family to get up and play together and have fun.  Not to mention to stay active!  Those dance moves will have you burning some calories!

Just Dance 2015 was no exception.  It came with an all new playlist of songs including new popular hits like “Problem” by Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea and “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.  It also had classic favorites like “Walk This Way” by Run DMC & Aerosmith and maybe this stuck in the 90’s mom’s favorite, The Macarena.  Oh yes.

just Dance 2015 Video Game Review Host a Family Dance Party

There was also Let it Go from Frozen and while Sydney and I danced to it, the boys simply cried out ewwww! It’s Frozen.  Boys.  What do they know?  :)

just Dance 2015 Video Game Review Host a Family Dance Party

This is a great game for families to play together because up to four people can dance at once together.  If you are playing with less, you do have the option with connecting online to play with other people around the world which is cool too.

just Dance 2015 Video Game Review Host a Family Dance Party

And I REALLY love the fact that Ubisoft has teamed up with Stomp Out Bullying to “show that everyone can dance to their own beat!”  How true!  When we play this game, we all look silly.   We didn’t know any of the moves and we well, I don’t exactly look like Katy Perry out there dancing!  But how you look dancing doesn’t matter!  It’s all about having fun!  And luckily, that’s an awesome lesson to carry out in other aspects of life.  The fun songs and sometimes silly choreography lets you really let loose and just have fun.

 

Here is a quick video of the boys dancing and their review of Just Dance 2015 video game!

 

Josh gave it a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars and Caleb gave it 4 1/4 stars.  Unless it was a song that he won.  Then it was a full 5 stars.  :)

Want to have your own family dance party?  I created some fun, free printables for you to hand out!  Everyone is a winner when it comes to a Family Dance Party!  Feel free to save these to your computer and print at home or send them to your local office supply store and they can print them for you!  In our Dance Party, Sydney won the Disco Queen, Josh was awarded Happy Feet and Caleb was for sure our Sir Dance-A-Lot winner.

We will definitely be having more family dance parties in our future!  You can order Just Dance 2015 from Amazon (click here!) and have a party of your own!

Rusty’s Restaurant – The Best Place To Eat At Port Canaveral

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida
 

While we were on our trip to The Space Coast in Florida one thing is for sure.  We did not starve.  Seriously we had so much great food!  After we had visited the Port Canaveral Exploration Tower we headed across the street to eat lunch at Rusty’s Seafood and Oyster Bar.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

I was instantly in love with the fun decor.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

One thing that I noticed around the restaurant was that there were lots of signs about helping others.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

There were signs for scholarships.

There were also signs for a background program for kids, water project and also to help the Brevard county hunger alliance.   The owner, Rhett, met us and started to explain some of the pictures on the other walls.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

It was filled with lots of older photos of what turns out was Rhett’s family and their restaurants.  It turns out that Rhett is a 4th generation restauranteur.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

Since the 40’s they have been serving the Cocoa Beach area.  They take a lot of pride in not only their restaurant, but they are also passionate about giving back to their community and where they call home.  I really loved that.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

I also really liked the view.  We sat outside on the new Tiki Bar and Deck.  It’s the perfect place to watch giant cruise ships coming in and out.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

While we were there they even had someone playing the steel drums.  It was perfect.  It gave our lunch a nice tropical feel but it wasn’t so loud that it was over powering either.

This is what happens when a group of bloggers get together.  :)  Yes, we are all on our phones, taking photos, tweeting, and instagraming.  And when the food comes, haha, we photograph it and pass it on to the next person to photograph.  We are a strange, but wonderful group.  :)

Speaking of the food….

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

We were greeted with our own special menus.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

This was the Gorgonzola Bread.  De-licious.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

This was the Jumbo Lump Crab Au Gratin.  It’s a mix of 4 cheeses with lump crab meat served with a sour dough bread loaf.  This was one of the most amazing things I have ever tasted.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

My friend Ericka from Ericka Saves ordered the Mahi Tacos.  Don’t the look delicious?

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

I had a Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad.  I was still pretty full from our breakfast at Sand on The Beach and with all of our appetizers!  The dressing on this salad was perfect.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

But Rusty’s wasn’t done yet!  Then they brought out a piece of Colee’s Key Lime Pie.

Rusty's Restaurant near Port Canaveral Florida

 

I have never had Key Lime Pie before.  I honestly figured I wouldn’t like it.  But this Key Lime Pie is homemade.

And oh.my.gosh.

This was so amazing.  If I could order it and have it shipped to Indiana….well, I would be eating a piece right now.

If you are visiting Port Canaveral or if your going to be in the area to take a cruise you really MUST stop by Rusty’s!

Disney Debuts Cinderella – Get Some Inside Scoop!

Disney Cinderella Movie

 

Did you hear that Disney is remaking the classic fairy tale Cinderella?  It’s not going to be a cartoon version like the Disney Cinderella like I remember, but I just saw the movie trailer (you can too below!) and it looks SO well done.  I’m actually incredibly excited about this!

Disney Cinderella Movie

 

Everything from the actors to the costumes to the set look stunning.

Lily James plays Ella (Cinderella) and she looks gorgeous.

The rest of the cast looks to be spot on including Cate Blanchett (the Step-Mother), Holliday Grainger (Step-Sister Anastasia), Sophie McShera (Step-Sister Drisella) and Helena Bonham Carter (the Fairy God Mother).

Disney Cinderella Movie March 2015

 

And can we talk about Richard Madden who plays Prince Charming for a second?  Very handsome.

The whole movie looks absolutely gorgeous.  I think that this is going to be one of the must see movies next year!  I know I can’t wait!

The Kennedy Space Center

The Kennedy Space Center

 

I remember a long, long, long time ago when my school offered a ‘field trip’ to go down to The Kennedy Space Center.  It was kind of an expensive trip and at the time I wasn’t able to go.  But it’s always been in the back of my mind.

Flash forward some years later and my son LOVES space.   Again, The Kennedy Space Center came to mind.  We try to get to Florida so we can see my grandparents, but they are on the Gulf of Mexico side and The Kennedy Space Center is on the Atlantic Ocean side so we have still not been able to make it.   So when I learned that while at Tuckaway Shores we would be stopping by I was really excited.  (And Josh was a little jealous!)

It did not disappoint.  At all!

The Kennedy Space Center

 

We were lucky enough to have a tour guide and she was wonderful.  She knew so much about anything and everything there was to know about the Space Program.

The Kennedy Space Center

 

I really learned a lot while we were there.  Everything seems super-size there.  I mean, we all know rockets (and missiles) are big, but when you are standing next to them, WOW!  They are really big!

The Kennedy Space Center

 

This tree was pretty cool.  The seed was actually on the Apollo XIV Moon Mission and then brought back to Earth where it has grown into this big tree.  When you think of the fact that this tree started out on the moon in space, it’s pretty neat!

The Kennedy Space Center

 

The Atlantis Space Shuttle has made its home at the Kennedy Space Center.  When you go in, there is a great movie to watch with some background information and then an introduction short movie.  It was emotional!  I looked around and lots of people were wiping tears in their eyes.  When it is over, the screen is lifted and you are face to face with Atlantis!

The Kennedy Space Center

 

This was actually used in many missions.  Our guide explained to us about where things were when this was actually in use and what life would be like for the astronauts.

The Kennedy Space Center

 

There are some really fun things inside, including a space play area for kids to play in and a big slide.  When you slide downstairs, you have the option of doing the Shuttle Launch Experience.  I highly recommend it!  You go in, get your photo taken and get ready for what astronauts call the most realistic shuttle experience.  It’s really awesome to experience that!  I really can’t wait to bring Josh back so he can experience it as well!

The Kennedy Space Center

 

Then we went to have lunch with an astronaut.  John-David Bartoe has flown on many missions and did a great job telling everyone about his life as an astronaut.  There was a school that was there with us and they asked lots of questions and he made sure to answer them all.  The kids really loved it!

The Kennedy Space Center

 

We then went on a tour and learned about the space program starting at the very beginning.

The kennedy Space Center

 

Can you believe that two astronauts fit in there?  :)

Everything was so cool.

The Kennedy Space Center

The Kennedy Space Center

 

This is what mission control used to look like when we put a man on the moon!  It’s hard to believe that people were able to create not only a rocket, but then get someone to the moon and back without computers and technology that we have today.  They were still doing their math with pens and paper.  Amazing!

The Kennedy Space Center

 

I really can’t imagine going to Florida and not coming back to visit The Kennedy Space Center!

The Sand On The Beach Restaurant

Sand on the Beach Restaurant on Melbourne Beach Florida

 

I’ve got another ‘must do’ for you while you are visiting Florida.  Even though Tuckaway Shores has a great kitchenette inside your resort room sometimes you just want to enjoy your vacation from the kitchen!  Sand on the Beach is a restaurant nestled on the beach in Melbourne, Florida.

Sand on the Beach Restaurant on Melbourne Beach Florida

 

When we pulled up the first thing I noticed was the bright, beachy colors and fun decor pieces like mermaids, surfers and of course the shark!

Sand on the Beach Restaurant on Melbourne Beach Florida

 

Inside, the decor is just as fun and beachy.

Sand on the Beach Restaurant on Melbourne Beach Florida

 

Well, when I say inside I really mean your tables beach side.  Because while you dine you will be looking at the gorgeous, secluded beach!

Sand on the Beach Restaurant on Melbourne Beach Florida

 

Yes.  It’s gorgeous.  But the food?  It’s amazing!

Sand on the Beach Restaurant on Melbourne Beach Florida

We went to Sand on the Beach for breakfast.  There were plenty of options, that’s for sure!

Sand on the Beach Restaurant on Melbourne Beach Florida

 

I went for the pancakes.  Sand pancakes to be exact.  Huge, fluffy pancakes with strawberries, bananas and blueberries on top.

Sand on the Beach Restaurant on Melbourne Beach Florida

 

These pancakes were HUUUUGE.  Like the size of my head.  And SO good.

The next time we are in Florida we will definitely be stopping by again!  If you are looking for a night out, there is also a bar upstairs that would make for a great adults only evening!
