I'm trying not to eat too much, but ...

Really, why do they make the food so good on vacation.  My husband and I split the oysters and pot stickers.  Ok, the oysters weren't that great.  They were small and waaaay over steamed.  See that little cup of yellow liquid.  That is melted butter.  Who puts melted butter on steamed oysters?  Nope.  I never heard of this.  Tobasco, yes.  Melted butter, no.

This sign is for my favorite restaurant near this lovely vacation spot.  I mean, who wouldn't miss "Meatloaf Monday?"  I was there for Meatloaf Monday, but I managed to skip the meatloaf.  Instead I chose...
 

THIS.  This is the CRAZY CEASAR SALAD.  It is delicious.  Romain lettuce, roasted garlic, roasted cherry tomatoes, roasted asparagus, fresh mozzarella, parmesan cheese, and a dozen steamed shrimp (big ones, such an oxymoron).
 

This is my husband's meal.  It is delicious, but it isn't as good as the salad.  It's haddock, scallops, shrimp, and fries.  He loved it.  I tasted it and he was right.  Delicious.  I just try to stay away from the fried.  Just sayin'.


Betty's is a great place to eat.  It's on the water, so the view is wonderful.  Betty is darling.  She will stop at your table and chat you up and down.  Fun.

Ok, this is a BIG hint.  I found Betty's A1A by googling the best restaurant in ...  Those googlers weren't wrong.  There you go Betty.  I told you I'd give you a mention on my blog.  :)

  2. Oh no! limiting the food intake during a vacation is something that I don't even try to do! Enjoy your vacation and your food!
