I am going to be in the woods for 5 days!
Ok, let me back up. Last year I went with my sister, mom, and dad to a little event called the Suwannee River Jam. It’s four nights of various country artists performing and a WHOLE lotta fun! Attendees can primitive camp or stay in RVs. Since my dad has an RV, we’ll be going that route. 🙂 We had such a good time last year that we decided to go again this year!
Unfortunately, internet and cell service is a little spotty when you’re out in the woods like that, so I’m taking an official blog hiatus for the next five days. I should be back either Sunday or Monday for a food i 8 post.
I’m excited for all the country music, family time, relaxation during the day, catching up on some reading, good eating, and even a little drinking! There will be no scales or calorie counting on this trip–just good times. So, I’ll definitely let loose a little, but I will try not to get too out of control. I’ll report back after my return!
Oh, and here’s a quick recap of the food i 8 today.
Veggie Lahvosh (lahvosh painted with red pepper & cracked mustard aioli topped with hummus, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomaties, scallions, spinach, and havarti cheese). “What is Lahvosh? It’s a thin Armenian flat bread cracker topped with havarti cheese & other amazing stuff then toasted to a dark crispy crunch…served with a salad” (source)
Breaded eggplant over mixed greens with a cheese “meat” ball on the side, all topped with my dad’s amazing pasta sauce. Then I had a second plate of this! Then I had two slices of garlic bread. 🙂 I sooo wanted dessert again tonight, but this is my LAST day of the week of no dessert, so I’ll definitely be back at it tomorrow!

- a few bites of leftover broccoli and smashed potatoes from my parents’ fridge
- Veggie lahvosh + side salad
