If you are addicted to watching the news in the morning, like myself, you will see Northern New York is in the snow belt. God I can’t wait to go back to school tomorrow…this 50-60 degree weather is nothing compared to that…not. So here to my NY friends, is why you go to school out of state. You get the best of both worlds.
I regret to inform you, due to a power outage at my college, my email is down. I will hopefully catch up with you guys tomorrow if you have emailed me. Too bad I needed to do my work on blackboard but of course that is down too. Hopefully my food isn’t spoiled up there.
For dinner last night we went to Don’s Seafood Restaurant. I had the seafood platter which included an oyster, scallops, flounder, and a crab cake. I forgot it also included shrimp until I saw my picture. Oh my goodness-it was delicious. I love having so many different types of seafood at my fingertips. My mom also got the same thing.
Anywho-I’m still on the Eastern Shore today. My parents decided they wanted to stop at a breakfast buffet this morning. Oh great-the one place I wanted to avoid-buffets. Maria’s had the atmosphere of a diner but was an actual restaurant. I’m pleased to announce that I didn’t go overboard-I didn’t even eat until I was full. I had two plates (and after taking those two pancakes, I took one bite and decided they weren’t as good as I had anticipated.). It was actually a huge accomplishment for me to go to a buffet and not overeat.
For lunch today, I was content but my dad insisted that we try the best ice-cream in Chincoteague. I must say it was possibly the best icecream in the area-I had cake batter and vanilla buttered rum. Although-I haven’t had “Mr. Whipys” which the locals kept raving about. Then I was full until dinner ha.
We got stopped though-some passerbyers were hogging the road. We literally waited for about 20 minutes because these beauties wouldn’t pick a side.
Dinner we stopped at a place on the way home called Stingrays. If you are ever going down the Eastern Shore of Virginia let me know and I’ll point you in a some delicious eats. I actually asked my mom if we could go to another restaurant called Sunrise which has more than fried fish but she really wanted to go to Stingrays. I had salmon, a baked potato and to try something new-I went for baked pineapple. Oh boy that is delicious. I never even know people baked pineapple. I am glad I am in my trying new things mode.
Day 2 was a neutral day for me. I didn’t get to work out today, but I didn’t binge eat either. Although-I’m not sure how ice-cream qualifies for lunch…but when in Rome…It was a mini success for me this morning at the buffet-but I am still going to not eat a lot at our school buffet.
This trip made me realize how much I miss good seafood, so I’m sure you will see a lot of that on my blog in the upcoming days.
Have you ever taken a mini vacation with your family?
