WW: Dixie Quicks & Art {Linky}

On Sunday we went out for breakfast. I've been to the local restaurant Dixie Quicks before for dinner, but not for breakfast. 

The boys wanted French Toast. We got them their French Toast, a cup of fruit to split, and juice. We hardly go out for breakfast. I never expected this:

Isaak ate half of his. Mica ate the whole plate of French Toast. Between the French Toast and full glass of juice I'm pretty sure they ate and drank their yearly calorie consumption. 

Food Coma

Last Bite

I had the Asparagus and Proscuitto Omelet. Travis had Cactus scrambled with eggs, black beans, and tortitas.

The food was so good!

The whole reason we went to Dixie Quicks was to visit The Dog Show - By Adopt Art Omaha. A variety of artists were given wooden dogs, and they could decorate them any way they wanted. RNG Gallery is where the dogs were displayed. The gallery is attached to Dixie Quicks. It's the only time all the dogs were together. After the show the dogs will be put on a scavenger hunt in the local area. The mission of Adopt Art Omaha is to encourage an appreciation and understanding of art in Nebraska and beyond.

I worked on 4 of the dogs. I'm not really a dog person, but it was fun to work on them. On all of them I tried to use found objects, paint and glue.

That is a lot of food! We don't usually do breakfast either, but when we do, it's a real treat.

I do adore how you came up with your dog designs. Very cute!

Holy cow, food coma is right! We love a big breakfast but I wonder if any of mine could eat that french toast in one sitting. Probably my oldest kids but not any others.

I love the dogs and the idea to use what you found. GG would like the one with all the colors, including pink.

The cactus scrambled eggs sound very interesting. That french toast would have put me into sugar shock.
