We spent the past week vacationing in Seacrest Beach, West of Panama City Beach. We stayed in a beautiful home just a few minutes walk from the beach. As usual, our vacations revolve around food and we continue to be those jackasses who take pictures of their food while on vacation. We went out to some great restaurants and cooked some terrific meals. Our rental house was extremely accommodating in every way imaginable. It is very clear that the owners are passionate about cooking and are concerned that their guests have the nicest stay possible. We would definitely return to this location and this rental home.
Cowgirl Kitchen was a great little bar and restaurant at Rosemary Beach. They had excellent beer, wine, and food.
Whole Hog Pizza – I’m daydreaming about this right now
Brownie A la Mode to go
Glazed Chicken Thighs and Homemade Cheddar Biscuits
The Donut Hole is a bakery/restaurant in Inlet Beach.
Red Velvet and Chocolate Sprinkle Donuts
Sweet Potato Praline Pancakes
The “Diet Plate”
Seasoned and seared some small shrimp
Waffles with Strawberry Compote and Fresh Whipped Cream
Fresh whipped cream with a dash of vanilla. Like I said earlier, our house’s kitchen was very accommodating. The only equipment I brought was my gyuto.
Don’t forget the mimosas
Charlie’s Donuts is a donut truck in Aly’s beach. You have to get there early before they run out. Amy was nice enough to run (literally) over there first thing in the morning.
Yep, that’s bacon on the right. These were very well done but a bit on the sweet side (yeah, even for donuts).
The Hub – Mile Marker Fifteen
The Hub is the center a new development a few miles West of where we were staying. It was about a 20 minute bike ride, following the 30a bike and pedestrian trail. The idea of The Hub is pretty cool – it is a centralized place where people can get together to watch live music, and other events, and have various options for food and drink. They have a lot of comfortable seating. Mile Marker Fifteen is their Mexican restaurant/bar. Everything there is counter service.
Taquitos with Guacamole – Cooked chimichanga-style, very good
Sweet Potato and Chorizo Tacos – Even better
Grilled Fish and Zucchini
Added in some sweet potato fries
And some wonderful tomatoes – I wish we could get this good of tomatoes at home this time of year
Cowgirl Kitchen Round 2
We needed a quick lunch that accommodates a quickly expiring 2 year old, so we decided to go back since we had such a good dinner there.
Amy’s blackened shrimp quesadilla. My pulled pork sandwich, with cole slaw on it, was very good but not particularly photogenic.
