FRIDAY I ATE
Breakfast: Eclairs… hey, it was someone’s birthday. I may have had something else, but the eclair is what I remember.
Lunch: Went to Dot Island Grill in Berkeley. Shrimp wrap. Decidedly mediocre… had a bunch of sauce in one corner, but the rest was dry
Afternoon snack: Venti mocha frappuccino
Dinner: Camping tacos… chips and salsa.
MONDAY I ATE
Breakfast: Granola, cranberry juice
Lunch: PB&J and Buffalo Bleu Kettle chips
Afternoon snack: Some Pepperidge Farm cookies, cheese and crackers, a tangerine soda, and a Coke zero. Man, department staff meetings are awesome!
Dinner: Pork noodle stir fry from Eating Well
Dessert: See’s candy. Also a nibble of cookies while cleaning out the camping gear
SUNDAY I ATE
Location: Lopez island to Friday Harbor
Breakfast: Bacon. Also sausage. How great is camping?
Morning Snack:Ice cream. From Lopez Island Creamery.
Lunch: Chicken-bacon-ranch sandwich from Lopez Village Market. This sandwich rocks! I’ve eaten this 3 times, and two of them changed my world. Take a breaded, fried chicken breast. Chop it up with some bacon. Add some white cheese (provolone, maybe) and some ranch dressing. They offer it as a cold sandwich, a wrap, or a panini. Now,, of the 3 times I’ve been there, once this was listed as the special and I remembered it for a solid year. The next time I went back, I asked and the person seemed really puzzled and ended up making me something that I didn’t really need to eat. I tried again, a year later. Sadly, I got the run around as I tried to describe this heavenly concoction. Then someone in the back, presumably the proprietor of the deli shouted from the back “You want a chickenbaconranch?” and came out to take my order. It was worth the effort.
Afternoon snack: I had ice cream at 11:30 and a chicken bacon ranch sandwich at 1:00. No snack needed.
Dinner: Leftover Pork Chili Verde.
Dessert: Leftover chocolate chip cookie.
SATURDAY I ATE
Location: Spencer Spit, Lopez Island
Lunch: Sandwich and hot dog on the beach at Watmough Bay
Afternoon snack: Chips and guacamole.
Dinner: Pork Chili Verde
Dessert: S’mores. Plus strawberries and chocolate
