My aunt & uncle used to have year-round house on the island when I was growing up and I was able to go much more frequently. However, up until last year when Brian and I visited Nantucket for our first anniversary, I hadn’t been in over 10 years!!
With only 3 days on island, we were always doing something fun and there was never a shortage of delicious food. I know I’ve told you that I come from a family of great cooks! That includes on vacation :)
I LOVED the house! It was Nantucket meets French Countryside as far as decor goes. I snapped some photos but you’ll have to excuse the mess…we were rolling 12-13 people deep at any given time!
LOVE LOVE the countertops…
That little wooden “shed” out there is actually the outdoor shower. A MUST on a Nantucket vacation. There is nothing like taking a nice hot shower out in the fresh air! Wish I had one at home!!
Fresh bluefish we cooked for dinner with grilled veggies
The remains of clams “casino”…actually it’s clams “(my aunt/uncles’s last name)” as they are their version made with prosciutto!
Famous tomato basil eggs
The gist of this dish is:
- Heat some olive oil in a pan with a little garlic/herbs/salt+pepper
- Add fresh sliced tomatoes, cook for a few min
- Crack fresh eggs on top, cook to desired doneness
- top with fresh basil
- serve with toast
It reminded me of bruscetta + eggs. SO good!
Monster-sized sandwich at the beach, from Something Natural
Brian and I split that, it was roast beef on six-grain bread with all the fixin’s. They make all their own bread…delicious.
Salad on the ferry ride home
Sadie and my cousin! Sadie made Bromley seem huge when we got home!
Rolling 10-deep in the Suburban
The water was actually REALLY nice! Usually too cold for me, but I went in :)
And last but not least…The Brewery! You can read my full recap about Cisco from our trip last September. One of the best spots on island!
That was their Pechish Woods! The newest member of their “Woods” series. Like the Cherry Woods, it’s also a sour ale, but the peach wasn’t as prominent as the cherry is. Still loved it.
Also fell in love with their Triple 8 Distillery’s Blueberry Vodka. This is unlike any “blueberry” vodka you’ve ever had. It tastes like fresh blueberries, and that color is all natural.
Perfect with club soda and a splash of lemonade. Definitely bought a bottle to bring home.
Well I think that about sums it up! Fun, family, food, beach, beer…am I missing anything?
Till next time…
