the super fabulous road trip of pure awesomeness {2}...

If you were not already aware Bff Jil and I took a lovely road trip last week. For Part 1 of our epic adventure please click here. I want ALL of you to click there and play the game we made up...so far only like one person has contributed! Come on people! Do not make me lose faith in you!

Anywho...this post is dedicated to the lovefest Bff Jil and I have with food...and with each other. We always joke that we are a couple, because we are pretty much the same person, we do everything together, and basically we are pretty much common law married. I mean if one of us was a dude the relationship would work out perfectly...just sayin'...

We had some of THE best seafood of our lives on this adventure, so we figured we would photograph some of our favorite meals! Prepare to have multiple foodgasms while reading this post. For serious. Also, prepare for the slightly inappropriate photos I had to add to this post for good measure...love us through it...

When we first arrived in Port Angeles, we noticed how clear and blue the water around us was. Duh. Water is clear. But the water there was BEAUTIFUL. We decided we must get some recommendation for the best seafood in town...and we were directed to 'Downriggers'. It did not disappoint in the slightest...

Why hello Best Clam Chowder Of My Life, you were delicious and I wanted to make sweet soupy love to you...as did Bff jil. You were better than my mother's clam chowder (shhh...don't tell her I said that)...

This is Bff Jil's foodgasm face...homegirl was obviously stoked for some fresh hot bread and soupy deliciousness in her belly...

For some reason Jil took 75,000 pictures of her soup...

Yep. It was THAT good, that we both took bread and scraped every morsel out of those bowls...it was thisclose to us just licking the bowl clean...

After making love to my soup I enjoyed hand battered fresh prawns...um they made me say holllllerrrr...

Bff Jil had grilled prawns...they were freaking delicious as well...let's just say that we ate at this restaurant BOTH nights that we were in Port Angles. Yum...

As we made our way back to our hotel room (and got lost about 12 times) we noticed these creepspice people statues all along the sidewalk. So we obviously had to get out and take pictures with them...I love me some boobage...

Bff Jil had to snap a picture as well...she loves some bend-overage...obvi...

Okay, I seriously have like 12,000 pictures of food from this trip...but there is no way I am posting all of them. Why? Well, because it is making me hungry...and it will make y'all want to lick your computer screens...which is probably not an awesome idea.

Although there is one more food-centric tale that I must include. Like I mentioned before Bff Jil and I are pretty much a couple. We decided to go out for Italian food when we finally arrived in Spokane (after the longest most boring 6 hour drive of my freaking life). We ventured out to Luigi's...and while at this restaurant we took our 'biatchmance' to a new level...

We snapped a 'signature pose' in the car on our way to din-din. Why yes, we DO love ginormous sunglasses...we are legit like that...

We made it to downtown Spokane and found the heavenly Italian food mecca, known as Luigi's. While we were perusing the menu, I suggested we take it easy on the pasta and stop eating before we get too stuffed for dessert. I. Wanted. Dessert. Specifically, I wanted to try Creme Brulee...which I had never had. So, we refrained from stuffing ourselves (kind of) and ordered one creme brulee to split...

It was obviously delicious...being that we only photographed the bowl after we had scraped it clean. We then realized that we took our straight-girl-date-night to a whole new level as we shared a dessert in a dark, candle lit restaurant, on a Friday night...

Bff Jil decided to document the seriousness of our relationship. What better way to document true freaking love, than by writing it out in chocolate? Why yes, that does say 'J+A' in chocolate, don't hate...

There you have it folks! Those are the highlights of all of the foodgasms we had on the road trip, now I am freaking hungry and want creme brulee.

Have a fabulous weekends lovey dolls!

xoxo

Jil, I thank you for not being a guy. Cause Alexandria would surely pick you over me if you were. Just saying.

Baby sis can make creme brulee, so when you come to Missouri with me I'll make sure she prepares some for you!!

I love road trips sooooo much, glad you and bffjil had fun!

Mmm that chowder looks scrumptious. & I find it unacceptable that you waited this late in life to pop your creme brulee cherry! That stuff is HEAVEN!

Jilian said...

Oh my hungry!!!! I miss Downriggers, and Luigis, and even Smugglers Landing...sigh.

I totally told my Mom that the "Downriggers" clam chowder was way better than hers..and she sported a pouty face! Uhm, sorry Ma, it was! Maybe you can call for the recipe..

The crown glory of the trip was definitely the creme brulee. Like you can't even explain how good it is..you just have to experience it first hand.

Oh Sam, you make me laugh.

If I didn't love you I would hte you for making me hungry from this delicious post. Seriously, me and my friend Kellie are pretty much common law married as well. We just have yet to be on an awesome road trip like this :)

You were right... this did make me hungry but not for clam chowder *green*icky*feeling*. I tried Creme Brulee the other day for the first time.... creamy cool sweetness with fragile crispy burnt sugar ontop....mouth is watering.

mwah!
