We're Home!

Vacation was nice, we had a wonderful time in Myrtle Beach. Rest...check. Relaxed...check. So much of that relaxation is due to the wonderful planning we did. So many other vacations have been wasted because of stress over food and money. This vacation was budgeted and the food well planned!

I know I promised photos...unfortunately every time we ate, the food looked so delicious I forgot to keep my photo diary! Every time we would finish a meal, I looked at Mr. Kummerow and said "uh-oh"! So no photos...but let me just describe shortly our experience.

Our first meal was at E Noodles and Company. We pulled up and the place looked deserted. We were very nervous and almost left. Alex and I decided to stick to the plan and grudgingly walked into the small restaurant. Once inside, the mood lifted with the atmosphere. And we were not disappointed. The food was excellent! We recently discovered vegetable tempura and ordered theirs as an appetizer. Delicious! For dinner I highly recommend the udon noodles with black bean sauce. Unfortunately they were out of tofu (how is that possible?) but our waiter offered up a vegetable medley that was delicious. Who needs tofu when you have yummy vegetables! E Noodles is definitely on our list of restaurants to visit again! So yummy!

For breakfast the next morning we had our banana muffins which turned out yummy...and then we almost bought a time-share. Somewhere in the presentation the coffee kicked in and we came to our senses. So no timeshare and on to lunch at Mellow Mushroom. The Mellow Mushroom in Myrtle Beach is not in the most scenic location, however, the food is as good as any Mellow Mushroom. I had the create your own salad and Mr. Kummerow had the Tempeh sandwich. We were satisfied and headed to the beach. After just a few hours we were sunburned despite our best efforts not to be. (I think my SPF 45 must have been expired). But our yummy dinner made us so happy. Zucchini Fetuccini...vegan style. Just a mix of tahini and marinara makes an inspired sauce! So yummy and so filling. With pressed salad and red wine, we were satisfied. That evening we went for swim in the pool and a long walk by the harbour. And that rounds out half of our trip.

Read tomorrow for the second half of our fun and yummy beach vacation!
