Hey, it’s better than a van down by the river! 😉
C’mon, who’s ready to party?
Yep, it’s Wednesday and I’m here to share some of the deliciousness from this past weekend! After you get your drool on here, be sure to head on over to Peas & Crayons and check out all the other mouth-watering link ups…and be sure to stop and shout a big thank you to Jenn for hosting our little foodie shindig!
So, on Monday, I hinted at some delicious eats shared with my mom while
escaping life visiting her at the camper this past weekend….and today I am here to share them with you guys…in the VISUAL sense anyway…sorry, but there were no leftovers! 😉
For the drive out there, I enjoyed a big ol’ mug of coffee and a new-to-me bar, gifted to me by the lovely Laura, that I now HAVE to recreate…
Great flavor, amazing crunch and only SIX INGREDIENTS!
Not long after I arrived, mom and I jumped into our swimsuits and headed for some out for some water therapy. We ended up coming back to the camper completely ravenous after only about an hour or so (what is it about being in a pool that stirs up an raging appetite?) so I whipped up a couple of delicious salads…
Romaine, kale, bell peppers, yellow squash, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, walnuts, gorgonzola cheese and my mom’s addition of cocktail shrimp at the last minute…
best idea EVER!
A few hours later, we both were in the mood for something sweet…
Vanilla pound cake, fresh strawberries, ice cream, and caramel sauce (which I have seriously dreamt about on more than one occasion since…Y-U-M!)
The rest of the night was spent catching up about SOOOO much and well, I there was a late night incident of animal crackers and a jar of peanut butter…but that somehow managed to go unpictured! 😉
The next morning, I surprised my mom with waffles for breakfast!
Trader Joe’s pumpkin waffles (yeah, the same mix from CHRISTMAS! #noshame) topped with pure maple syrup and sliced peaches.
For the record, peaches and pumpkin totally work! 😀
Just before heading out Friday afternoon, we whipped up a quick lunch/snack since our waffles had proved to be more than filling that morning…
A small bowl of spinach topped with cucumber, tomato, and onion “salad” (chopped veggies marinated in Italian dressing for a few hours)
And then I had a Quest bar on the road!
The perfect amount of food so as not to ruin my appetite for dinner with the man-friend later that evening…
I know…I’m such a tease! 😉
Recipe coming TOMORROW!
