A Long Weekend

My two best girls Rebecca and Lindsay both graduated college this semester and we decided we want to take a long(ish) weekend away to just relax, drink, eat, and just take the time to breath. I know, I graduated last year, but I recently had my one year mark at TracyLocke and I figured we could all celebrate something important in our lives.

We headed to Brigantine, New Jersey for the weekend. Brigantine is a small island right outside of Atlantic City with an amazing beach and a Wawa! Why have I never been to a Wawa before? I now get the hype behind it all. The majority of the weekend wasn’t that great weather wise but we did take one trip to the beach. Other then that though, it was just what we all expected it to be. A lot of drinking games, a lot of movies, and a lot of bad (BUT SO GOOD) food. I can’t wait to go back when it’s warm and we can just sit on the beach all freakin day long!


Thanks Lindsay for the polaroid!

After a 6 hour ride home (that should have been 4, thank you GWB for sucking so bad, I hate you.) I came home and crawled in to bed with my cat and wanted nothing to do with food since we ate so much this weekend. But, my stomach knows me, and by 8 I was starving. I didn’t go grocery shopping this weekend so, I had to scrap something together. I had a craving for nachos, but no cheese, and no chips. So, I got crafty and decided to make my own chips. Easy and quick, and I’m already full and back in bed.

Homemade Corn Tortilla Chips
Prep time: Psh, none
Cook time: 5-10 minutes

6-10 Corn tortillas
Oil spray
Salt

Preheat oven to 400°. Cut your corn tortillas in to 6ths (or 4ths if you want them larger). Spray your non stick pan with Oil and place your corn tortillas on the pan. Spray with more oil and then cover with as much salt as you like. I have high blood pressure and I’m not even 24 yet, so we all know I like a lot of salt. Whatvea, I don’t hate it. Throw in the oven for 5-10 minutes. It really depends on your oven, mine took about 7. Just make sure that they’re a little brown around the edges. And poof! Done! I ate mine with my favorite Trader Joes salsa.

Atlanta Bound!

Hi all, I will be taking a brief hiatus from the blog land. I will be traveling to Atlanta tomorrow to next Monday to visit my best friend, Angel. I have been wanting to take this trip for a long time since she has been down there for so long now, but it was never in my budget. So I am finally embarking on my journey. This will be my first time traveling alone! I’m a bit nervous, but again, excited to be taking a breather, seeing my best friend, and having a great time.

I’m also looking forward to eating. I’ll be in the south, so who wouldn’t be?! The only issue will be the fact that I am Gluten Free and Angel is a Vegetarian. I have a feeling I will have a upset stomach from time to time, but eating a fresh biscuit just might be worth it. Our fist stop on my first night there will be to the Woodfire Grill. I’m a huge Top Chef fan and an even bigger Kevin Gillespie lover.

The best part about this is when Angel called to make reservations she mentioned our dietary restrictions and they called her back a day later and asked if there were any other special instructions besides a gluten free plate and a no red meat plate. How great is that?! I have so many restaurant suggestions, but if you have any more for me, please let me know!

I will have so much to update with when I return next week!
