Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Vacation Food

We ate fabulously while on vacation. The food was so good, in fact, that I totally forgot to take pictures. I know. What kind of blogger am I who can;t even remember to take pics? I can tell you about it though.

First night. We had made NC style BBQ and carried it with us. Something easy to heat up after driving and unpacking a weeks worth of supplies. It was very tasty and we had enough for people to snack on all week.

Night Two. Fondue. We did it up right too. Cheese fondue with garlic ciabatta cubed, apple slices, carrots and broccoli. A traditional oil fondue to cook steak, chicken and shrimp accompanied by cocktail, ginger peanut, and sour cream horseradish sauces. We ended with peanut butter chocolate fondue and everything you can think of to dip in it. We bought the pound cake, strawberries and bananas and then raided the cabinets for the rest (pretzels, pears,vanilla wafers and pineapple.) This is the one picture I remembered to take.

We poured the dip into the cups me brought for jello shots and enjoyed dessert out on the balcony. It was SOOO good.

Night three. We ate at a little restaurant that mostly does burgers and sandwiches. I had the best Reuben I've ever had. The corned beef was tender and juicy with the perfect amount of 1000 Island and Swiss. It melted in my mouth.

Night four. Taco night. This is where I concocted my Avocado and Shrimp Tacos and they were yummy.

Night five. Definitely picture worthy. We had a table heaping with seafood. Steamed shrimp, crab legs, clams and mussels. We ate until thoroughly stuffed... and then ate some more.

Day six. Date Night. We enjoyed adult beverages and a wonderful meal. I had a NY Strip with a loaded baked potato. I did remember to get a picture of the drinks though...Can you guess which is mine?

Night seven, Leftover night. This is the night everyone is supposed to do their best to clan out the fridge so as not to have a bunch of opened containers to take home. FAIL. We did not do a very good job. I ate my leftovers from the night before. We barely put a dent on all the food in the fridge.
