On Vacay!

I worked my two days this week and tomorrow morning I’m off bright and early to catch a ferry over to Martha’s Vineyard!!  My roommate's parent’s rent a house for a week every summer and the past few summer's I have been lucky enough to come down for a few days.  This year and last I have gone from Wed-Sat, which is a perfect amount of time.the-edgartown-lighthouse

I plan to get a little beach time in (weather permitting), shop around Edgartown, Vineyard Haven, and Oak Bluffs, and eat some AMAZING food.  My all time FAVORITE restaurant that I can’t wait to go to is The Mediterranean.  It’s insanely good.  There will for certain be a post about it!

But until then, I’ll do a mini recap of some delicious COLORFUL eats!

Fresh Summer Fruit:  Raspberries, Strawberries, Cherries, and Green Grapes!

Delicious fruit = fruity oats!


This wonderful mix consisted of:

  • 1/3 c. oats
  • 1/3 c. skim milk
  • 1/6 c. water
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tsp Apricot preserves cooked in
  • about 3-4 strawberries (some added halfway through cooking, the rest cut fresh on top at the end)
  • raspberries added to the top
  • Kashi U sprinkled on top
  • approx 1 tsp PB
  • approx 2 tsp raw almond butter

Speaking of Almond Butter, I had to replenish my stock yesterday at TJ’s and I just couldn’t decide…so I got both!


Raw Crunchy and Creamy roasted

I also grabbed that amazing looking fruit spreadIMG_4624

  Some other loot consisted of:


These were with the other dried fruit!  TJ’s makes their own fruit leather, and I guess this bag is full of the odd end pieces that come when they cut it up into strips.  It’s all different flavors too!  IMG_4626

Those granola bars are SO good.  I treat them more like a dessert/treat…and they taste like one too!  Chewy goodness.

And what trip would be complete without a new cereal to try:IMG_4628

This reminds me of Honey Bunches of Oats in consistency and appearance, but MUCH less sweet…perfect sweetness for me.  Crunchy, light, and a little sweet.

Tonight I finally made a batch of the infamous Super Charge Me Cookies that are so popular in Blog World! 

Thankfully the recipe is now online so I whipped up a quick batch to take to the Vineyard!



Now I see what all the fuss is about…these are AWESOME!!! 

And I leave you with some leftover wedding flowers :)


I’m all packed (over-packed) up and ready to head to sea tomorrow :)
