Yesterday, I started the day with a nice bowl of kashi autumn wheat topped with a little granola, cranberry trail mix and oat milk. The oat milk seemed really sweet with the autumn wheat so I think it is better suited for oats rather than a sweetened cereal. I was really thinking it would be nice in coffee. With the exception of lattes, I generally drink coffee black but I might give the oat milk thing a try. But getting back to the topic, I really enjoyed the variety of nuts and fruits in the cereal and it was very filling.
Work was a madhouse and before I knew it, it was lunch time. Today, staff lunch was a baked potato bar! So exciting! The topping choices were endless but I settled on cheese sauce, loads of broccoli, fresh made salsa, a little chopped bacon and a dollop of sour cream. I really enjoyed this lunch very much and told chef that he could do it every other day and I would be very pleased.
Shortly after lunch, it was time for me to go home. I was taking a half day because the dear husband and I were heading to NC for a visit with my family. Once I got home, I did a little laundry, some packing and a quick trip to Target. I had a snack a little before we hit the road of a new yogurt find, Skyris. It is from iceland and could put fage out of business. I topped it with a honey drizzle and more of the cranberry trail mix.
We hit the road and made our way down to NC. We arrived just in time for dinner at the BBQ place that my little sister works at. Being from NC, I am very picky about BBQ and it is a must eat while visiting the family. The people in VA just don’t know good BBQ! 😉 I had the BBQ sandwich combo, health food at it’s finest. A BBQ sandwich with coleslaw, crispy french fries and a sweet iced tea.
My mom shared her hushpuppies.
I don’t get the have NC BBQ very often and this really hit the spot, even my native VA husband prefers it. My sister assured us she would have a pint ready for us when it is time to go home!
After dinner, we stopped by Target because on the way down, I realized that I had left my camera cord at home. How could I possibly food blog without pictures?? After Target we headed to our hotel and settled in for the night. A fun and exciting day is ahead!
QOTD: Is there a regional food that is a must have for you?
