I don’t think I’ve mentioned this, but the reason for our quick trip east is Abe’s grandmother, who passed away in January. The official services are tomorrow, but today a small group of us piled into a rental van for a little memorial in Beach Haven, NJ (where she often vacationed)
Appropriate music from her time on satellite radio!
The clouds parted and the sun shone down right as we were on the beach!
Afterwards we had lunch around 2:30 at nearby Buckalews
Dinner reservations at 7:30 so I ordered just a soup (Manhattan Clam Chowder)…
…knowing full well I’d be stealing bites. Some of Abe’s Portabello, Veggie, and Cheese
and David’s crab cake sandwich (too salty)
A whole bunch of fried foods! Half of these surprisingly yummy french fries
And a couple reeeeeally long sweet potato ones
My favorite were these Toasted Onion Battered Green Beans
I filled up on a few too many of those, with Ranch and Sweet Soy dipping sauce.
On the drive back we quickly stopped by Evergreen Dairy Bar for soft serve
Just a taste
Now we’re off to dinner! I’m still full so I’m sure I’ll just wind up eating off of everyone’s plates again…
