I'm currently taking the Camp Scrap Workshop that started this week at BigPictureScrapbooking.com. As is often the case, there was a pre-class handout with information about the class and a pre-class layout idea. For this workshop, the teacher, May Flaum, provided us with a color palette from Stacy Julian and challenged us to create a layout using those colors. Stacy's color palette was inspired by a hamburger! Here's the hamburger color palette and the papers I chose from my stash.
I flipped through my storage binders looking for photos that would go with these colors, and then I had an inspiration. What about doing the layout about food? The inspiration came from a food after all. I ended up creating this layout with photos of various foods from our road trip.
If just looking at those photos doesn't make you hungry, here are some of the best meals and restaurants we discovered along our 1,300 mile road trip from North Texas to the Gulf Coast and back up through the Hill Country.
Elite Circle Grill - Waco
Excellent Chicken Club sandwich!
Buzzard Billy's - Waco
Best appetizer - humongous cheesesticks. Literally, these cheese sticks were huge!! There were actually four of them (I didn't think to take a picture until we had already gobbled down the first two).
Pier 99 - Corpus ChristiShrimp Bonanza - a huge platter of food that included "Hoss size jumbo shrimp, sauteed shrimp, blackened shrimp, fried shrimp, boiled shrimp, cole slaw, cob corn, new potatoes & toasted french bread!" The best place to eat seafood - sitting on the patio with the beach literally on the other side of the wall.
Snoopy's - Padre Island
We had to try this eatery as it came highly recommended by our friend Felton: he and Elaine and their family used to eat here every time they traveled to this area of the Gulf Coast. The best fried fish ever!
