3100 miles of eating

What a great vacation!!!! I admit it though. Eating was a BIG challenge and I gave up. There was candy and ice cream and pizza and burgers...and a few salads sprinkled in there. Mostly, there was a lot of french toast. What's the price for all of this?? Well, I'm afraid to get on the scale and will not do so until I make it to the gym at least once.


breakfast in Grants Pass, Oregone - Black Bear Diner

omelett wtih chicken, hash browns and a biscuit
 fruit on the side
 lunch in Orick, California - Palm Diner
 dinner in Redding, CA - Logan's Roadhouse


IHOP!!!! eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns and red velvet pancakes with frosting syrup needed!
 fruit with breakfast
salad and chicken salad in Reno...I didn't eat most of the bread

at Hash House a Go Go

Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza in Elko, NV


some damned amazing pancakes and chirozo with eggs at Bella's in Wells, NV

 Mmm, ice cream after visiting the Salt Flats in Utah

Chinese food in Jackson, WY


eggs, grits, toast and chicken fried steak at Bubba's BBQ in Jackson, WY
 salad and fruit in Yellowstone National Park
 mint chocolate chip ice cream in Yellowstone
there really was a small salad...buffalo chicken with blue cheese from the Antler Pub and Grill in Gardiner, MT. I can't say that the restaurant or service was good, but the staff was friendly and mom and I sure had fun. LOTS of dead animal heads on the walls too.


Breakfast buffet at the Yellowstone Mine Restaurant
 lunch at the Uptown Dinner in Missoula, MT

Best. Chocolate. Milk. Shake. Ever.

No Contest.
Ranier cherries from a roadside stand

 Pacific oysters at Spencer's for Steaks and Chops in Spokane, WA
 Caesar salad at Spencer's
Filet mignon with beans and brocolini at Spencer's

Berries and marzipan cream from Spencer's...brought this back to the room! I don't think that I ever want whipped cream again if it doesn't have marzipan in it!


Breakfast at a truckstop...I forget the name though. Sorry.

It was, however, our last meal on the road.

There was ice cream in the afternoon too.
 pulled pork, corn tortillas, cucumber & onion salad, and yucca & red cabbage slaw at Chez Parzych-Potter!

Nothing like an actual home-cooked meal with friends after 3100 miles on the road!
apples, ice cream and a cookie for dessert


brunch at Macrina Bakery

french toast with blueberry compote, lemon whipped cream and toasted pecans

applewood smoked sausages
 salmon roll and spicy tuna roll at Japonessa
the day's Chef's Choice sashimi for two at Japonessa

There were chicken enchiladas and chips at Azteca in Ballard that escaped being photographed. Good thing too...they weren't that good.


breakfast in JFK Airport, I also had a chocolate filled croissant
And frozen pizza at home...back to veggies tomorrow!
