Food at the Beach




 
Breakfast at the beach requires some organization.
Charcoal, frying pans, spatulas. Salt and pepper.
We forget pot holders and use paper towels instead.


Lots of fruit as a cover for the real stuff: bacon, eggs and sausages.


Oh, oh, oh, the grease and the plastic forks
 Not a bit eco-friendly
But what fun!



ps. Several people wondered where this is exactly.
 Field #3 at Robert Moses, straight over the causeway. Beach nearest the tower.
Picnic tables and grills provided. (Bring your own charcoal, utensils and food.)
We arrived at about 8:30 and were the only ones there.....
Definitely worth it.

  4. After breakfast do we get a book review of "Bone Tear"? I started writing a story set in England, albeit a century or two later than this. It is not easy to capture a feeling of the time in dialogue while still keeping it comprehensible to the contemporary reader.

  7. Bright green with envy. Breakfast on the beach is the most heavenly way to start the day...and yours looks utterly scrumptious.

  8. I did not know one could cook on the beach - perhaps just some. Your beach-scapes are beautiful!

  9. Like Eryl, I am consumed with envy. Bagels, a book, and the beach?! It doesn't get better than that!

  10. Looks like a lovely picnic! Robert Moses is my favorite Long Island beach. I love their pitch and putt golf course--next time I go I'll need to find these picnic tables.

  12. MMMM SAUSAGES! Sandy sausages! MMMM!
    We used to cook on the beach here but we would find our food which meant mussels and crab- Ok if you like mussels and crab but I prefer sausage! I am fond of lard....Dexter agrees wagging wildly when I say "sausage?"

  13. Mamma mia,
    these images should come with a warning, dear Elizabeth:
    Do not open without having at least a New York bagel nearby to bite into! ;-)

    I don't know what it is, but food at the beach - seaside, lake, river, even pool - taste always so much better! Your images transport the whole imagery right into my room, I can hear the sizzle and smell the sausage!

  14. Nothing like a good breakfast fry up... and at the beach too! How lovely. Sea air makes a body hungry. I can just smell the bacon and bangers! Yum-oh!

  15. What a perfect way to start the day. And boo hoo--those bagels!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. What fun! I can smell the bacon frying 3,000 miles away!

  17. By the time your post makes it to Mountain time the party is over <:( (except for Linda Sue--she must have smelled the food). That early sun makes your picnic photos look so extra inviting! And real east coast bagels! No pale western imitations there. A breakfast by the sea. Yes, definately worth it!

  20. What a super idea - breakfast on the beach - and bacon and eggs too - that would be almost too much to anticipate.

  21. That sounds blissful! I'm very envious of your warm day at the beach -- and those plump NY bagels.

    Your new header looks so idyllic.
