Homeward Bound

I'm back from a beautiful beach weekend celebrating my mom's 58th birthday. The past three days were filled with parasailing, boardwalk stomping (around Beaufort), eating & dranking, swimming, clam digging, moonwalking, and spending loads of quality time together. I love getting away for a weekend, but there's nothing lovelier than coming home.

Our meals were delicious, but my sunfried mind didn't think to take the first picture. Argh! Anyway, our menu consisted of:
  • Delicious eggs, bacon/sausage, and blueberry pancakes every morning! Have I told you that I love breakfast foods....all of them.
  • Beer Butt Chicken - a little weird to look at but soooooo good
  • Ribs - Little sis makes the best. Stab 'em and slab 'em, Lexi!
  • Burgers - with super thick slices of homegrown tomatoes, creamy spinach and artichoke dip, couple slices of crispy, salty bacon, and topped with a whole grain bun. Mmmm, feed me, Seymore!
  • Hot dogs - that's it; not a whole lot to say about those...they were bun-length Ballpark weenies...
  • Spaghetti Salad - Mike's (big sister's man) concoction: thin spaghetti; diced veggies - red, yellow, and green bellpeppers, english cucumber, roma tomatoes; fresh herbs - dill (& LOTS of it), cilantro, and basil; italian dressing)
  • Coleslaw - also Lexi's
  • sliced veggies and hummus (for snacking)
  • and French Vanilla Zucchini cake covered in berries
I have some beautiful & even ridiculus pictures to post, but I'll have to get to those later this evening. Hopefully.
