Hey all! Happy 3rd of July! I for one love the week of the 4th.  It’s one of the times in the summer where I make sure I am OUT of the city and somewhere by the beach.  This year I am in CT helping with the family catering business and attending my home town’s (a beach town) fireworks, as well as more beach, food, and fun for the 4th.

One of the perks of being in CT and helping out with the family bizz is that I get to eat great food all day, every day.  One of the cons of being in CT and helping out with the family bizz is that I get to eat great food.  all day.  every day.

I have a hard time when I come to CT and am surrounded by food.  I won’t lie to you, I had a Bacon Egg&Cheese at 6am yesterday morning.  (HELLO, I REPEAT, 6AM. All bets were off) But later in the day I regained my sanity and health-conscious mind and dug into this amazing salad.

Arugula, Beets, Goat Cheese, Strawberries, Shaved Almonds. Balsamic Dress.  Yeaaaah boy.

The rest of my meals yesterday were nothing note-worthy..we were all too shot from work and mostly snacking.  Those snacks included Cinnamon Shredded Wheat cereal, watermelon, yummy pitted cherries, and shrimp cocktail. (?)

Now for some 4th of July BBQ Gear ;)

Goofball :) Who doesn’t love some overalls to feel like a care-free kid again?!

Enjoy your 4th of July! Hope you see some beach.
