Recent Eats: Beach Edition (so much good food!)

Beach eats have been nothing but good! I have been fed so many delicious things here…

The first night we had grilled flank steak, asparagus, salad, roasted potatoes and quiche. What a feast!

Another dinner was pasta with sauteed shrimp and scallops with salad and green beans. These sea scallops were  so good.

We went out for dinner one evening and were greeted with a big basket of hush puppies. I’m pretty sure this restaurant gets its customers and good reviews with these hush puppies. That’s all anyone talked about when we read the Yelp reviews.

For dinner I ordered crab cakes and a salad. The crab cakes were loaded with crab and not a lot of filler.

We stopped for dessert after dinner at Calabash Creamery. I would like to say that it was for the kids…but I was equally as excited about my waffle cone. 🙂 🙂 🙂 I went with a combo of praline pecan and strawberry.

Tonight’s dinner was a team effort. I worked with my friend’s daughter and her friend to make a taco feast.

We did a buffet of fish, ground beef, mahi in a lime/garlic/cilantro mix marinade, homemade guacamole, homemade white sauce, cheese, shredded cabbage, cilantro and Mexican quinoa.

My plate with fish tacos and Mexican quinoa. It was the best dinner ever after a day of paddle boarding, beaching and intercoastal floating.

I’ve been served beautiful omelets ever morning for breakfast and lunches have been basics and eaten on the beach. One day PB&J and another day PB&B. Tastes so good with plain kettle chips. Side note, why do chips and PB&J taste SO good at the beach?

What’s your favorite beach or vacation food? I have to go with room service baskets of warm croissants and coffee when I’m at a resort and old school sandwiches on the beach when I’m staying at a beach house/condo.

    This post just made me so hungry! I love spicy, salty snacks on the beach. Not sure why!
    p.s. Planning on trying your bosu ball circuit at lunch! I just spotted the bosu the other day and figured I should give it a go!

    My favorite beach snack is fresh fruit! Watermelon, peaches, and blueberries are my faves! All washed down with Capri Sun haha. And when the sun is going down, I go for peel n eat shrimp and a frozen cocktail 🙂

    Love the “beach hair” you are rocking and those hush puppies! I haven’t had those since college…Going to check out your Mexican Quinoa recipe. A client picked up a big bag for me from Costco, so I’m going to start experimenting. XOXO

    Loving the food. I wish I could eat some of those hush puppies! My favorite beach/vacation food is a good burger. Throw some quality cheese and bacon on a beef patty, and I’m good to go!

    That all looks so delicious! I’m going to the beach on Friday, so I’ll have to bring PB&J and potato chips 😉
