I’m back from Florida!
I really shouldn’t use an exclamation point on that statement because I wasn’t exactly happy to leave the warm weather to return to what is still winter here in New York.
Anyway, I’m ready to share some of the meals I had while in Florida. While I thought about saving the post until next week, I have it ready so let’s discuss!
What I Ate In Florida
Oh, so before we jump into the meals, I was in the Boca Raton area to get some quick sunshine, see my friend Heather and go into the office with her (we both work in the events industry — total coincidence), and see my grandmother. A few days away was just what I needed!
We went for lunch at True Food Kitchen straight from the airport — I totally forget which salad this is but it was loaded with roasted vegetables and very good!
Later in the day after going to Town Center and the pool, we went to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner. I hadn’t been to this particular Cheesecake Factory, I think, since maybe 1998? I remember going during college when I would come down to visit Heather really often but I don’t recall after that.
Breakfast looked like this every morning.
I ate my oatmeal and fruit outside in the warm sunny air every day and loved every second of it.
I had this iced tea one day too. I don’t recall what type it was but it was decaf, fruity, and good.
We brought salads from Raw Juice to the beach.
I went to see my grandmother for dinner one night. We went to an Italian restaurant near where she lives in Delray.
I had a greek salad with some garlic knots. The food was good but the coffee wasn’t hot enough (according to my grandmother and she made sure to tell the waitress – don’t ask).
I’ve known about Farmers Table for a long time and finally tried their delicious food to see what the hype is all about!
I didn’t know what to pick so I picked two sides – the roasted Brussels sprouts and the buffalo cauliflower. I LOVED what I chose and really liked the buffalo cauliflower.
Eaten by the pool.
Another day by the pool I tried the wok-fried quinoa cauliflower with sauteed zucchini and squash. I would eat at Farmer’s Table regularly like everyone else in Boca if I lived there! It’s really that good.
We went for dinner one night at a restaurant in Mizner.
There were lots of appetizers for the table and then I also had a salad. I had some of the margarita pizza which was fine because I was hungry but I could tell the sauce was from a jar. This is what happens when you leave the New York area and want to eat pizza. You can’t fool New Yorkers when it comes to pizza!
After dinner, we walked over to the candy store because I needed something sweet and chocolate.
I took a quick picture of my bag of candy not realizing the picture was blurry!
It was not easy to leave the BEAUTIFUL weather to come back to New York, that’s for sure.
However, whenever I see the city from the plane as we are landing, I am always very happy.
In next week’s Favorites post, I will share which Stoney Clover pouches I used and some of my other favorites from my trip.
Have a nice weekend!
