What I Ate Wednesday

Hello Wednesday! Just a few What I Ate Wednesday eats to share this week.
First, after our fun Stand Up Paddle Board outing, we went out to lunch. We of course hit up a place that served breakfast since that’s what I always want to eat. For the first time ever, I liked my husband’s meal better than my own.
I ordered the chocolate french toast. It was basically chocolate cake. I did eat a piece and a half before feeling like I had overdosed on sugar. MMT had ordered a french toast sandwich with fried eggs and local sausage. That was yummy! Note to self: don’t go for the chocolate.
The restaurant, 26 Beach is also known for its Watermelon drinks. Yummy!
Since Jenn’s August WIAW theme is Summer Staples, let’s get to a few of my summer favorites. First – frozen grapes. I bought grapes at the store the other day and froze them all.
Another summer staple: Lemonade Stand. Must have fresh baked cookies for the lemonade stand that my kids did with some friends on Monday. Back of the bag of Nestle’s Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe makes the best cookies.
Summer Staple #3: movies! We had a coupon for a free soft drink at the movies yesterday. We ordered a small fruit punch for the kids to share. I have never seen such a large small drink EVER! What’s the point? Why is a small drink large enough for 5 people? Sorry the picture doesn’t do it justice – it was the size of a bath tub.
On a healthier note – some summer fruits from my CSA box yesterday. I am totally looking forward to putting those fresh blueberries in my oatmeal this morning.
And finally, my lunch from yesterday – so very exciting – - Homemade almond butter and blackberry jam sandwich with the final bit of CSA carrots from my last box.
Go check out Jenn’s blog hop and wish her congratulations as her husband just returned from serving 7 months in Afghanistan. Welcome home!!
Are you shocked by the size of movie theater drinks? Ever done a lemonade stand as a kid? Liked your dining companions food better than your own?
