10:00am: Breakfast- Green Monster Smoothie
In the mix:
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 2 handfuls spinach
- 2 tablespoons (45 calories) of PB2
And here's where the day took a bit of a turn...not to the COMPLETELY unhealthy, but to the more...nautical??, as Katie, my BFF & I all headed back down to Manasquan on a RIDICULOUSLY perfect day to be at the beach...
12:30pm: Lunch- Tuna sandwich & pretzels (not pictured)
Which Katie also inhaled nearly half. Ummmmm...thanks for the portion control, K??J
And my BFF & I made it as far as the Point Pleasant bridge before
I we decided I was we were too hungry to just head back home without proper seaside sustenanceJ And when she told me this place was nearby, we plugged the address into the GPS and headed there ASAP...
Who can hate on a restaurant ATTACHED to a fish market...which just so happened to be RIGHT next to the fishing bay? Ummmmm....not me!
And this place was the epitome of shore-ambiance...dontcha just love its simplicity??
And, of course, we had an equally sea-worthy dinner, starting with a shared bowl of lobster bisque...
...which, AGAIN, Katie decided to GET INVOLVED!
We also decided to split the mini crab cakes, which were light & airy and low on 'filler's...
...and a big ole pot of GARLIC MUSSELS!
The mussels were tender with just a kiss of the sea...butttttt my favorite part just had to be dipping the accompanied bread in the garlic sauce that these babies were all swimming inJ YUM!
And by the time we left Spike's, a HUGE line had formed OUT THE DOOR and patrons were given a half hour wait time. THIS WAS AT 7 O'CLOCK ON A TUESDAY NIGHT, FOLKS! You KNOW this place must have a great reputation and the SIMPLE and CLASSICALLY good seafood spoke for itself.
Alrighty...well, today might border on nautical as well, given it's suppose to be the last warm & sunny day of the week. Mother Nature looks like she's taking us to FALL-town after today, with highs in the mid-to-low 70's. Late August, say whhhattttt???
Have a great Wednesday, all!
