Happy What I Ate Wednesday.
It’s my turn to host this little shindig of Jenn’s, and I thought what better way than to share my road trip turned family dinner eats. I like a little variety in my food and in these posts. Since I’m fairly certain you feel the same, I’m bringing you my Saturday edibles, which started in Cleveland and finished in Buffalo. Multiple state meals: bring it on!
My first and unfortunately only breakfast that day was a fruit and kale filled smoothie, which I inhaled about five minutes into our three plus hour road trip.
An hour or so later, I tapped out of driving and into the passenger seat so I could munch on my new favorite snack: Cheez Its and raspberries; sweet and salty perfection. I ate about half the bag of Cheez Its and three-quarters of the berries. The only reason I held back was so I would have some for the way home on Sunday.
In Pennsylvania, we stopped at a friend’s house for a few minutes, long enough for me to snag a piece of pumpkin raisin bread. Yes, even I will consume pumpkin when famished.
By the time we got to New York, my little brother and his finance were getting ready to host family dinner.
They had some snacks out, which I happily helped myself to again and again and again. There were very few pickles and pretzels left by the time the rest of the family arrived.
Dinner was a themed event: Oktoberfest and while I turned down the eight plus varieties of sausage, I did house some roasted cauliflower soup, half a plate of buttered spaetzle, warm cinnamon applesauce and rye bread with more butter, of course. Butter is my jam, not to be confused with actual jam.
Dessert was a piece of mixed berry pie with a crumb topping alongside a couple spoonfuls of fresh fruit.
While the food was fantastic and it absolutely was, the best part of the entire meal was the company. Plus I took selfies with the dog; totally normal.
