Road Trip Eats

First day of high school = complete! I survived :D 

So this WIAW is all about what I ate on my trip! Let’s get started!

After my race we stopped at my new favorite place  - Doncker’s! I went there once before while I’ve been blogging.Photo2 (67)

I ordered the “Princess Zubina” – peppered chicken, fresh mozzarella, sundried tomato, grilled onion, spinach, and pesto mayo on flatbread! And the Macaroni salad. Oh. Em. Gee. SO GOOD.

Mom got Mac&Cheese. It might be the best I’ve ever had. (Okay, one of them. I’ve had a lot of mac&cheese in this lifetime. ;) )


You can’t leave Doncker’s without ice cream! Mackinac Island Fudge ftw :D

you don’t take selfies with your ice cream?

 Hotel breakfasts: you win some, you lose some. This one wasn’t the best, but not terrible. I had some Cinnamon Toast Crunch – it’s been forever since I had that! And I had to steal some single serve peanut butters…


 After shopping, I was starving. It was way past lunch and too early for dinner…hence lunner. (dinch?)

Okay… THIS is the best mac&cheese I’ve ever had. It’s official. Mac&cheese topped with broccoli, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, onions, pesto, and more cheese. I can’t even….. 

Finished with a blizzard. S’mores is the best blizzard flavor, it’s true.

Since we ate at such odd times we had lots of snacks in the cooler like tomatoes, broccoli, grapes, along with granola bars and such.



Hotel breakfast the last morning was very disappointing. Good thing I brought my own bread, peanut butter, and bananas! 


they did have yogurt… I’ll give them that


On the way home I planned on eating at Subway. About an hour before we were there, I saw a Jimmy John’s and it sounded delicious. So I changed my plans and ate Jimmy John’s! That’s a big deal to me, that I switched my plans and ate at a different time- I survived! They are my new favorite sub shop.



And more ice cream because who can pass an ice cream shop and not stop?

WHEW that was a lot! Happy Wednesday everyone :D I’m off to a cross country meet!

Who is your host? I went through Bluehost, I am very happy so far!

  2. Flatbread sandwiches make my tummy rumble! Also pesto Mac&cheese?!?! Ah, sounds divine. I’ve heard such good things about that Smores blizzard, but sadly we don’t have a DQ around here so I will just have to make up for it with Ben and Jerry’s :)

  3. I definitely approve of the amount of ice cream in this post, especially since it’s Mackinac Island Fudge AND Dairy Queen. Basically the two best kinds<3

  4. I think I will end up going to Bluehost by Christmas – I am hearing awesome things about it! :D
    I take selfies with my ice cream – I just never got the one up on my blog and I “accidentally” deleted it. There may have been some on my nose …

  5. CONGRATS ON BEING SELF HOSTED! I really need to get off my lazy bum and do something about mine, but I’m lucky enough to POST on my blog, much less self host it! All of your food looks delicious! The amount of ice cream in this post makes me have faith in humanity! Love it!

    • Thanks Katherine!! You really should (although your blog is great right now!) but if you do, let me know, I’d be happy to help! :D

  6. I am glad you survived your first day AND were able to change your plans while driving home without worrying too much! That’s awesome!
