Good morning and welcome to another What I Ate Wednesday! Mid-August, how is that even possible? This summer has been going a mile a minute…Thank you as always to the lovely Jenn of Peas & Crayons for hosting the weekly link party. Take a visit to see more WIAW from other bloggers!
For better or worse, the old saying that time flies when you’re having fun is totally true. This summer, busy as it’s been, has been a good one. When I haven’t been working my toenails off, I’ve been enjoying my free time. This past weekend, I even ventured out to Long Beach for some relaxation under the sun. The food certainly didn’t suck either. Here’s a day of beach eats:
- Breakfast: Before heading out Saturday morning, I enjoyed a filling breakfast of salad, scrambled egg whites, and a whole wheat sandwich thin with hummus and roasted eggplant
- Lunch: We picked up sandwiches at a grocery store near the beach. I went with turkey, lettuce, tomato, and mustard on whole wheat. Gotta love the typo.
- Dinner: Oysters and “lobster bake,” which came with corn on the cob, clarified butter, cole slaw, and chips. The last 3 c’s went untouched (I will probably just never warm up to cole slaw or chips, and that is totally okay), but I was still a happy camper. There was also beer and wine involved.
- Snacks: Some pineapple and strawberries at the beach; much later, a few thin mint cookies (2 or 3) and a few sips of skim milk before bed—random but it got my stomach to stop growling
What are some of your favorite things to eat at the beach?
Good morning and happy Saturday! Hope your weekend is off to a good start. After working last Saturday, it feels like such a treat to have two full days off! Small pleasures.
Last night I got my weekend started off on a great foot with a Zumba class taught by the lovely Diane of Piece of Cake Nutrition. Thanks for an awesome class, Diane!
Afterwards, I hauled my white, uncoordinated ass home to make dinner and pack for a beach excursion. Somehow, I’ve lived in NYC over 5 years and have as yet to cross a day-trip to a local beach off my bucket list. I’m definitely looking forward to remedying that situation.
Have a great one!
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
Monday always comes to soon. I spent this past weekend at the Jersey Shore (first time in two years) with some high school friends and had a relaxing time.
To extend the beachy vibe, I am refusing to blow-dry my hair for the next few days. We’ll see how that goes…
What are some of your favorite things to do at the beach? Do you take breaks from blow-drying your hair?
As I mentioned in my last post, I spent the holiday weekend “down the shore” (as we say in Jersey) with my family. On Saturday, my mom and I stopped at the liquor store to get supplies for kir royals.
I’m celebrating the Fourth of July with my family at the Jersey Shore. Last night, Chris and I joined my mom, sister, and a few of my sister’s friends at a local restaurant that has great chicken (and vegetarian chicken) wings. Usually we split a big order and get side salads of something.
