Weekend Travel Season – May 21, 2016

As the weather starts to get nicer, we spend a lot of our weekends out of the city – beach, friends, back out to Cali :).  That limits how much cooking I can do on the weekends, so you will find my posts shifting a bit to sharing restaurants and meals and travel fun over the coming months.

A few weeks ago, I took some time in Connecticut exploring the gluten-free / FODMAP options with one of my best friends. I arrived in CT to a homemade steak and kale salad with all FODMAP-friendly ingredients (because I have the best friends!) and the beach 🙂

We went around to a few restaurants as well that weekend, trying out the great options, just 1.5 hours outside the city!

We took a trip to a local seafood spot called Lenny’s and got a lobster roll over lettuce – delicious!

One evening, we stopped for a glass of champagne and a snack at Shell and Bones.  The fact that the shrimp cocktail was in a heart shape only made it better 🙂

We wrapped up my trip with a night walk on the beach, with the sun beginning to set.  Perfect weekend away!
