Adam and I took a long weekend and went home to visit my parents last Friday. It was great! We hit the beach, tried some new restaurants and ate at old favorites, caught up with family, and just had a fabulous time.
Here were some of the highlights…
Lots of fancy coffee.
Including an almond joy iced latte from Barefoot Buddha. Alongside a Bigfoot Bagel Sandwich, aka the – egg frittata, smoked turkey, turkey bacon, cream cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, chipotle aioli, tomoto-onion coulis, fresh spinach – sandwich I ate on my wedding day!
Bailey’s Delight milkshake from Udder Delight.
Rum and cokes from Woody’s happy hour.
Maple shortbread cookies my mom makes every year.
Pumpkin Chobani with homemade chocolate chip cookie and candied walnuts and ground flax.
Fish tacos on the beach at Iggy’s.
Quick dinner at home for board game night.
Turkey Reuben with smoked turkey, gouda, and cole slaw on rye. Plus green beans sautéed with almonds. And we had locally made chocolates for dessert.
A delicious dinner at The Long Board in St. John. The Carib Sour = Bullet bourbon, Luxardo amaretto, lemon juice, honey, egg white, and whiskey barrel aged bitters.
We started with fried plantains and chicken wings with mango glaze and garlic-lemon aioli.
And my dinner was a salad with romaine, red cabbage, shredded carrot, wakame seaweed, sriracha, crispy wonton, ginger mandarin vinaigrette, and Korean bbq chicken.
Everything was wonderful, just like our trip!
