Hi everyone! Sorry I have been MIA – We got back from vacation Monday night and yesterday we had to go grocery shopping because we had absolutely no food in the house…so unlike me! For todays WIAW I am going to show you everything I ate on vacation.

Day 1: Lunch at Saloon on the way there – Pulled Pork with sweet potato waffle fries – ate all of the fries in place of the bun šŸ˜‰

Day 1: Dinner at Bocca – AMAZING. Greeted with warm pita bread and dipping oils

The best salad I ever had – Trying to recreate the dressing which was a limeĀ vinaigrette

Half of aĀ phenomenalĀ  capri panini – so mad i forgot the other half there šŸ˜¦

Split Dessert: Fried puff pastry filled with blueberries and served with a scoop of gelato

Day 2: The best tasting beer I’ve ever had…and I’m not a beer drinker

Dinner: Ordered a Salad – They brought out lettuce only. Hate when places do that!

Ordered the Mac and Cheese as my meal

You can bet I ate every last bite!

Split Dessert: Waffle with gelato, hot fudge and whipped cream – Amazing…

Day 3: Salad with tons of veggies – yum

Lunch: Cup of chili – I ate around the meat.

Dessert at lunch time? Sure, why not – We were heading out so it would be our last one! Reese’s Ice Cream Pie. Um, yes…no words.

With travel time totaling up to over 10 hours in the 3 days and the food we ate I could not wait to get to running yesterday. On my plan was a 3 mile run but I ran a little more than 3.5 because I NEEDED the movement.

Oh by the way – We did more than eat in Cooperstown. I promise…

We went a cider mill

Went to a beer tasting (most amazing beer)

Went to the hall of fame

Where I clearly had fun..

I stuck it out for 3 hours – By then my attention span had shrunk to the size of a peanut.

We also saw some AMAZING views. I couldn’t get over how pretty everything was! I feel as though I never captured the true beauty of the mountains.

Now I’m back home to city life – where people honk outside of our apartment every 12 seconds.

QUESTIONS: What is the best meal you’ve ever had on Vacation? On this particular one I would say the salad from the first restaurant… Yes, it beat out desserts. Who am I?
