My 25-member family is at the beach this week. Every year we all pile into one house and have a mega blast together! Whenever you get this many of us in one place you can bet we'll be doing a lot of eating! These traditions seem so natural to me after doing them for the last 28 years, but this year I saw them through fresh eyes and I thought I would share with you a two part post about the way we eat at the beach!
Although it's not fresh seafood... heck, who really knows what's in these things anyways... we always have a "dogs on the beach day." Uncle Bill lugs out his charcoal grill and cracks open a few cans of chili. (Please note that we do use very authentic shell serving utensils!)This year the guys whipped up a table out of some driftwood we found in the dunes, pretty impressive I'd say, complete with a lower shelf and trash bag hook!
This year we rivaled Kobayashi in our hot dog consumption! Hot dogs taste so much better on the beach!
