Birdie’s is about fueling the soul. Seriously, we just want to make you feel good. To be honest, we aren’t coffee nerds. Don’t get me wrong, I know a lot about it, but I haven’t devoted my life to being an expert. But, just like you, I need it in the morning (and sometimes in the afternoon) to survive my husband and adorable two-year old. I have three other vices: PB&Js, grilled cheese sandwiches and snoball. Growing up in the South, all three were staples in our household.
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made it into my lunch box at least 3 out of the 5 days of the school week. I pretended like I was mad at my mom for the lack of variety, but I found myself reaching for the peanut butter and jelly over the weekend, so I couldn’t have been that upset. To this day I don’t think I have ever had one that I didn’t like.
Grilled Cheese was the first thing I learned how to cook. What I have found out through the years is that it is impossible to mess them up. Pick a cheese, any cheese….the rest is easy.
And, what better way to escape the heat than a snoball. I remember when I was 8 or 9 our go to summer activity was setting up the slip-and-slide in the back yard to stay cool. After we were completely worn out, and in need of a rest, my mom would take us to the local drive through snoball shop, where I vacillated between Pina Colada and Watermelon. Half and half was always an option.
So, in a lot of ways Birdie’s is about reliving my childhood. Except for the coffee, that’s about getting through real life.
