My nephew's mac and cheese burger.  He can't have the fries due to his allergy so they gave him extra mac and cheese.  This plate was gone in less than five minutes and he claimed he was still hungry.  Have I mentioned that he is 6'2" and a beanpole?  He must have an extra stomach somewhere.

Yes! Young people have such high metabolisms. I remember those days for myself, and could eat four or more times what I eat now and never gain an ounce.

 

I was preparing to host my nephew and his fiance, at the time, now wife, with a Mexican feast a few years ago. My husband asked me why I was making so much food for the amount of guests. I told him he would be surprised at the quantity these two kids in their early twenties would put away. I was right too, and they loved the spread I put out. The next day they were both slated to take a long practice run in our summer heat to prepare for a fitness challenge test back at the military base when they returned from their vacation. I feel confident that I fueled them well for their run (which would very likely have killed me :D). I actually love feeding people with ravenous appetites, but I'm sure that's only because I do not have a live-in teen/young adult. It would get pricey fast now. During my ravenous years we had Shaky's Pizza buffet with fried chicken and salad, Shoney's salad and breakfast bars, the Hungry Fisherman all-you-can eat specials on seafood, and food in general was much cheaper. I feel sorry for parents now, it would cost a fortune to feed a growing active teen/young adult these days.

Drinks

That center drink's glass is so narrow on the bottom, I think they were afraid to fill it all the way, because a breeze might tip it over. xD It's an interesting and pretty glass, though. It looks right on the brink of being stable. Perhaps it is just perspective, though.

 

I have loved seeing your meals and the beautifully photographed scenery on St. John, VI, and thanks so much for sharing with us here.

Winner of battle conch fritter: it was a close one.  High Tide had a great sauce, but the fritters were slightly undercooked.  Shipwreck Landing's were tasty and had lots of conch but lost points for being served with boring cocktail sauce.  Caneel's were well cooked with a good amount of conch, but skimpy on sauce, and the most expensive (naturally).  Banana Deck's were OK, but again, slightly undercooked.  Ultimately, Miss Lucy's fritters were our favorite again.

 

I'll end with a photo of my favorite beach.  It's not the most famous or the prettiest but I love it.
