WIAW – Sunday Brunch Edition

Surprise reveal – Travis took me to an awesome Sunday brunch and a little hike  to burn off at least a few calories.  It was an awesome surprise!!


If you’re in the York, PA area and haven’t gone to brunch at the John Wright Restaurant, you need to go!


The view of the Susquehanna River from our table was awesome.  We could have sat outside, too!



I’m not gonna lie.  I ate a lot.  I started with a waffle decorated with goodness at the waffle bar, pecan French toast, some potatoes, and a piece of bacon.


Round two was an omelet made right in front of me.


Next up: chicken penne with some caesar salad.


And although Trav and I split one of pretty much every dessert, this was the amazing chocolate chip cookie drizzled in greatness. The food was amazing.  There were a lot of lunch options that had seafood that I didn’t try (not a seafood fan), though Trav said good things about them!




After brunch and a stroll down to the water’s edge, we headed to Highpoint Scenic Vista and Recreation Area to overlook the surrounding area.


It was a half of a mile hike to the top, and the weather for the morning was absolutely beautiful.



So pretty!

We followed up the afternoon with some iced coffee, and then I got down to business on some homework.


We spent a day apart, and then Trav joined me in Ship Monday evening.  Last night, we made an AWESOME dinner.  Chicken kebobs with squash, peppers, and some potatoes.

It was perfection. Too bad we made the perfect amount and there were no left overs Sad smile.

Well, that’s this week’s edition of WIAW.  Check out some other fabulous eats on Jenn’s blog!

Happy hump day!

    I used to go to town with the omelette station when I would eat on campus at school, so I understand your excitement 😉 However, I will say that they were slacking on the waffle bar front!
