Tuesday in Food



Happy Tuesday to you all!  Doe Eyes (above son) does not have school this week so we headed on an adventure to Yakima today!  (Yes, it was an adventure for us thank you very much)



Breakfast was late this morning as there was no early morning carpool to do.  WoHoo!  I had a bowl of Bob's Red Mill Spice N' Nice hot cereal with three prunes, sliced banana, coffee and milk.



Since we were in Yakima, no adventure to the city is complete without a visit to the local shrine of over-consumption, Miners' Burgers.


Do you see the size of Doe Eyes' lunch!  (He's in a growth spurt right now and ate it all, plus tater tots, fries, and a chocolate shake....our grocery bill is in so much trouble in a few years)



Sweet face (other son) with his lunch.  He basically didn't touch his hot dog but had chocolate shake and fries for lunch.  C'est la vie.



My lunch.  I'm not even kidding about the size of this food.  It is all HUGE!  I had to get a fork and eat this burger in separate pieces as I couldn't get my mouth around a whole cross section.  I had about a third of this burger plus a chocolate shake and some tater tots and french fries.  Even consuming only a third of my meal, I was FULL!



This was our ultimate destination, the Yakima Valley Museum.  I know it doesn't look like much from the outside, but for us, it's big time!  The kids love it here.  For our region, it is such a cute museum and it is dedicated to the history of Yakima.



Even after a day of adventure, we were all still full from lunch at dinnertime.  We all decided to just have cereal.  The kids call a meal like this "Brinner".  They now want "brinner" all week long.  

Have a great day tomorrow!  See you then.

What a fun day with your boys. Not surprised that finished their meal. Growing boys need to eat. hahaha...

Holy cow that is some serious food! As far as your food budget in the future? My oldest son is 6'4", still only 175lbs and is an eating machine.

Love that you take the boys on special trips like this. They will remember them!

Cool that you had some good fun with your two boys.
I noticed also that your daily meals involve plenty of different kinds of fruits...that's just awesome.

I remember those days of eating such a big lunch I would want brinner. Cereal is always a great brinner.

Oh, I'd totally donate a kidney for a hot dog or a burger right now, major fast-food munchies :D
Your boys are adorable :D

That burger joint looks so typical of what you will find here dotting the Texan landscape. Your boy is adorable.

Brinner - I like it. Hot dog going spare? Pass it over!

Your son's milk shake is taunting me as I sit here eating my salad!

Is that Bob's cereal good? I'm always on the lookout for a new healthy breakfast!

great photos and a fun day!

Chef E said...

Not sure how, but my son announced at six he would not eat children meals any more so I also knew I was in trouble!

Hmmm, now I want a hot dog!

Jill said...

A trip to Yakima isn't complete without Miners! We loved that museum too. Your boys are getting so big!

Gera @ SweetsFoodsBlog said...

Wow this fast food is really full! With this burger you don’t need to eat the rest of the day :)
Nice to see you enjoy your sons!

Have a great week,

Gera

Doe eyes is such a fitting name! What handsome boys. My sister has two teenage boys that can empty out the fridge in record time. What a fun day trip!

Hey girl! Your boys are so adorable and I bet they had a lot of fun!!!!! :D

Mary said...

It looks like you had a great day with your boys. They are both going to be heartbreakers in a few years :-). I've never been able to figure out why kids like hot dogs so much, but they for sure do.

Nour El-Zibdeh said...

It's amazing how we can fill up on 1/3 of the meal offered!

I love the days when I have light dinners... cereal, or cheese sandwich, yum yum...

Hope you had a good day!

Julie said...

Wow, those dogs are huge! Isn't it always the little understated places that have the best stuff inside??

Sophie said...

It sure looks that you had fun with your boys!!

Thanks for sharing!!

I wish my daughter ate half as much!

Mommy Gourmet said...

Okay I have to say I am monumentally impressed, only 1/3 of the burger. I get it was big, but man I would have had a terrible time showing restraint with that! Pat on the back!
