I shopped as I would do so at home with a side of trying to impress the teacher. I ended up purchasing the following items, with $1 left over.
Tomato, Spinach, Apple, Squid Ink Pasta, Pink Peppercorn, French Baguette
After our shopping excursion, we visited the Champagne Bubble Bar and Biscuit Bar. Upon receiving our itinerary, I was overly intrigued on the Champagne Bubble Bar - and boy did it meet my curious expectations. I didn't want this moment to ever end.
It was time for me to head back for lunch, which was hard to imagine being I was already full. To my surprise, we were greeted with menus, showcasing our names by the meal our products purchased earlier in the day helped make.
My name was on every single entree. Go Megan!
Amelia’s Market Minestrone: tomato, peanut, bell pepper (Megan, Mike, Kim, Andy). This dish was made using boiled peanuts instead of beans. When I saw that one of the other visitors purchased boiled peanutes, my eyes got large. What on earth would one do with those? Well, my friends, this was simply amazing. My contribution to this meal was the tomato and baguette.
Our lunch was served in the Chef's Kitchen, an area you can rent out for private parties. It has a full working kitchen and you get to see them working their magic. Pretty cool right!? Check out Omni Amelia Island Plantation for more information.
