A Terrific Roadfood Weekend
Our weekend turned into a real great Roadfood Weekend.
We had a horrible long drive to Foxboro, Mass. and did not eat. Traffic was dreadful and my daughter in laws phone kept telling us to take different routes because of accidents, ete! She wanted to obey so that our 6 1/2 hour trip turned into 9 hours where the food options were Subway and Dunkin Doughnuts!
However, the great tailgates, before and after Navy.s Loss to Boston College, really made up for lack of food all day.
Our Roadfood adventure started at 11:00 Am on Saturday at the Sea Swirl seaswirlofmystic.com where we had a small but great feast of whole bellies and then on to our next stop which was Pepe's Pizza in New Haven. www.pepespizzeria.com
We ordered the large clam (of course) and the plain one. The grandchildren decided that they liked Old Forge pizza better but ate their share.
WE were pretty full by then but made a quick stop at Rutts in New Jersey www.ruttshut.com
where we each had one hot dog and then on our way to our hotel in Philadelphia. Later in the evening we went to Spasso's spassoitaliangrill.com where we had a wonderful dinner and/or appetizers. Then it was off to bed.
The next morning it was breakfast of champions at Tony Lukes www.tonylukes.com
for roast pork and rabe and cheesesteak sandwiches. We did not eat the rest of the trip. Dinner was grilled vegetables and meatloaf, made at home.
Today, on the final day of our "Roadfood" weekend, we chose to go to The Point
WJ posted about his meal there several years ago. We have gone back a few times since, and today was a beautiful day to sit by the river. We had drinks at the bar and then had our dinner outside at a picnic table. Great food, great servers and a wonderful view on a warm sunny day. We then took my granddaughter to the Navel Academy, were she will begin her summer duties tomorrow. It was a super wonderful weekend for all of us.
