My mom and I shared a packet of peanuts and I got a seltzer on the flight (they weren’t worthy of photographs….) but otherwise breakfast held us through a long rental car line and the drive to my grandparents’ in time for a lovely late lunch.
My grandparents read the blog and my grandmother made a point to serve ingredients with health benefits – pasta salad made with whole wheat orangic flax pasta, superfood veggies (tomatoes, peppers and broccoli) and light olive oil mayo :)
I also had some chips and salsa, a crostini with some cheese dip and a sliced apple.
And we had light and fluffy berries and cake for dessert (berries for antioxidants!) My grandmother made the cake on the bottom. Here’s the group portion -
And my serving…
And we couldn’t resist the fancy box of chocolates! These were local A. Kirchmayr choclates from Timonium, Maryland.
I tried a bourbon one – YUM!
It’s naptime here, so I’m going to go for a short walk with my mom and then read my book until dinner. We’ve got dinner reservations for 6:30, so I think I’ll do fine without a snack.
