Elephants and Fried Chicken on Waffles

The three day weekend was hot, relaxing, and full of summertime touristy things. It was lovely.

On Saturday we went to the zoo (Which is free. Thanks, DC!) and brunch with our sweet neighbor. It was hot. We we still managed to have a wonderful time looking at a new art installment made of trash found in the ocean and spending time with — my favorites — the elephants.

These are made completely out of items found in the ocean including flip flops, tooth brushes, and toilet seats.

As you know, I’m into food. This outing included a trip to a local favorite: Bar Charley. Since first enjoying the glory that is chicken and waffles at Rosco’s in LA, I can’t resist this truly inspired combo if it’s on a menu. Delicious!

The rest of the weekend included a trip to the Postal Museum, grocery shopping, and whipping up some delicious (and cheap) crab cakes! A post on those coming soon. Have a great week everyone!
