WIAW #48 – Good Eats on Lake Mead

WELCOME WEDNESDAY!  It’s that time of the week to share some fun eats.  I know the title of Jenn’s posts are called “What I Ate Wednesday” but I’ll be honest, I usually forget to take pictures on these days.  Shocker, I know.  I’m the type of person who has the iPhone at the ready to capture any piece of food that passes through my presence.


Yesterday I shared a little bit about my trip to Lake Mead, so it’s only fitting that I share what we ate over the weekend.  There were a total of four families on the boat and each of us took on a meal or two.  Breakfast and dinner were our biggest meals and the rest of the day was spent snacking on something or another.  It was so darn hot that we honestly didn’t have a full appetite for lunch. But I sure enjoyed the variety of snacks we had access to 😉

  • Breakfast burritos – scrambled eggs, bacon & sausage, fruit salad, sauteed veggies, salsa, avocado or guacamole…OLE!
  • Yogurt & granola parfaits with some fresh strawberries & peaches (Did you know August is peach month?)

  1. I love boating, especially if it involves water skiing! 😀 All your eats look so fresh and delicious. I’m especially loving all the snack plates! Snack plates often compose my lunch and/or dinner. I love that it allows me to have a bunch of different foods when I can’t decide what sounds good 🙂

  2. My oh my, those looks like some marvelous eats! I am so intrigued by TJs cold brew coffee, I think I am going to grab some today! Nothing is better than Iced Coffee in the summer, especially when you are practically melting at the lake! I absolutely LOVE family vacations when we rent a house and are able to cook awesome meals rather than eating out all the time 🙂
