Ahhh the beach

Who doesn’t love a good trip to the Oregon coast? Sure it’s a little rainy and windy and cold, but it’s the

beach. Also, it’s the off-season at the beach. That means no, or less tourists, almost empty beaches, perfect warm fire and s’mores conditions; need I say more? It is also a lot more fun with friends!

We were lucky enough to go to the beach house this last weekend with some amazing friends. We explored the coast, eat at our favorite local food place, played board games, roasted s’mores, and eat good homemade foods! I’m lucky enough to have friends that are foodies also. This time my friend also brought her German roommate with her, and it was fun sharing our beach traditions with her.

This trip we had a crab boil (coast tradition really. Started at Hubby’s bachelor party, actually) hash and eggs, and risotto. I had never had risotto until this last weekend. Boy have I been missing out! It was amazingly good and I can’t wait to try to make it home! The crab boil is always fun and yummy. We buy fresh local crab and clams for it. Then there is the red potatoes, corn, beer, and spices. The only thing better then the food is the friends. We always play games, laugh, talk, and just have fun in general. All in all it was a relaxing weekend. To top it off Hubby actually found a pearl in one if the clams. Okay it may be a small pearl but a pearl non the less.

I also was turned on to the iPhone app Snapseed by Google. It is super fun and addictive. I would have to say that it is easier to use then iPhoto on the Mac. It does drain your battery in no time; but worth it!

I hope that your weekend was as fun as mine!
