Food for Thought?

          Needless to say our Maine trip was not good for my diet! I will be playing a little catch up this week, and for the next little while. For the past 13 weeks I participated in a "Chubby Challenge." I am participating to improve my health, exercise habits and eating habits. This past 13 weeks my weight loss was 14.2 pounds, until Maine that is. I am back with it this week. There was actually a break in the rain today, and I walked and ran this afternoon.
     We felt as if we were eating from the time we arrived in Freeport, until we left Atlanta, and since we were attending my nephew's wedding, there was a lot of good food involved!  I will say all of the food was great! We did not eat a bad meal. There seemed more to choose from, than your typical chain food restaurants.

This little roadside stop was highly recommended to us, and advertised as one of USA Today's top 10 picks. By the time we parked the car the line had gone from three people to about 15 in a matter of a few minutes. It had gotten pretty windy so we opted for this little place instead.

Sarah's sign out front said,"As seen in Country Living Magazine", so we were hoping that meant it was OK.
We ordered some Haddock Chowder and salad. The chowder was delicious, and we definitely should have shared the salad!

Our table mates ate the rehearsal dinner.



                               And AFTER!

    If you guessed this is my daughter and her husband you are right.
Can you guess what we had?
Totally Yummy!
All this, and not to mention we still had the wedding reception to go!
Now it is definitely time to get back to reality!
Have a wonderful Friday!
