Southern Wedding Weekend

I had a four-day weekend this past week when we headed down to Chattanooga on a road trip with Tuna’s fam for a wedding.

vera1Both the road trip the wedding were pretty awesome, especially the FOOD!

2013-04-20 22.46.11Since it was a southern wedding, there was lots of southern food.

Some delicious highlights:

  • Weirdly good hibachi in a small country town in Virginia.
  • Mac and cheese filled biscuits (yes, heaven apparently exists).
  • Fried pickle kabobs are my favorite.
  • I LIKE CHEESEBURGERS NOW. This occurred late night at the wedding, served with chocolate milkshakes. The buns were biscuits. I had mine…and Tuna’s. Whoops.
  • Stone ground cheese grits at a country club brunch with a gorgeous view.

2013-04-21 10.56.54I did not weigh myself yesterday. I don’t think I will for a few days!

The ten hour ride home was broken up with back-to-back McDonald’s stops.

I tried to be somewhat healthy-ish at McDonald’s (I still don’t think that’s possible) and tried the new chicken and ranch McWrap with grilled chicken.

It was decent tasting for a wrap, though it still isn’t that healthy with it’s mayonnaise based dressing and white tortilla. But after my double cheeseburger incident above, I don’t think my body was complaining to see a little bit of lettuce.

I still think cheat weekends at events with yummy junk food are worth it. I may not feel so hot afterwards, but I spent my time enjoying yummy food rather than resenting it!

Do you ever find yourself stressing about food at an event/party?

What is a new food you’ve tried lately?

Have you tried the McWrap yet?

  1. “Enjoying food rather than resenting it” are words I live by! I think everything is fine in moderation, but when it comes to an event or party, sometimes you just have to splurge! As long as you get back on the healthy(ish) bandwagon afterwards, I say go for it!!

Tell me all the things.
