Our family always has too many cooks in the kitchen. We begin planning our vacation menus the second dates have been reserved for a trip. Ironically, we often have the same meals every year at the beach: pizza, low country boil, tacos, and dozens of sandwiches for lunch. While this beach trip was a bit different than usual with a bachelorette dinner, rehearsal dinner, wedding day lunch, wedding reception and Sunday brunch in the mix, here are a handful of our beach meals.
Eggs, toast, fruit, coffee (Nectarine season- wahoo!!)
