we are off to seaside for the next week to celebrate the fact that we are both entering the fourth decade of our lives! we have been looking forward to this vacation for months...it's not often that we get to take a whole week away by ourselves. we have created a yummy menu to enjoy while we are there. lunches of lobster cobb salad, bagels and lox, fresh fruit...and 3 fancy dinners of steakhouse filets, cornmeal fried onion rings, fish with caper and tomato sauce, saffron zucchini and herb couscous, shrimp and scallop gratin, and champagne and saffron mussels...YUM! of course, we are stopping at joe patti"s to get all our seafood and we are sure to find some other delicious treats at modica market while we are there. we will also be dining at a few of our favorite seaside spots bud and alleys, pickles, and cafe rendezvous and looking forward to trying the new taco bar.
besides eating our way through the week:), we plan to play a lot of tennis, bike between the beach towns, play croquet, read our books (we are both bringing two- my choices: a confederacy of dunces and animal, vegetable, miracle: a year of food life), sleep in, drink in the sunsets (and maybe even wake up for a sunrise or two), sample delightful wines at the wine festival, and, most importantly, relax and enjoy each other.
i will post pictures and a trip update when we return!
