T Stands for Going Out to Lunch

Happy T Day ladies. Time to share our drink posts over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog once again.
So today I am going to share my Saturday outing from this past weekend as I mentioned in Saturday post..
My husband, my daughter and myself went off to visit my mother-in-law who is spending the winter in Maine at my husband's sister's house.  When we arrived we found my sister-in-law's daughter was visiting too, so we all decided to go out for lunch together.
We went to this old railroad station which has been converted into this nice little restaurant of the Sebago Brewery (in Gorham, Maine).
And here's gang except for me since I am snapping the photo.
(from left clockwise -my niece Sarah, my daughter Katie, my sister-in-law Debbie, my MIL Barbara and my hubby David.)
And since I was at a brewery I had to have a beer.
And since this is a drink related post, I have to show you.  :)
The water on the right is
 mine also.  The orange juice looking drink to the left was my niece's hard cider.

I ordered a turkey panini with cheddar cheese and sliced apples which was very good. And I substituted onion rings for my French fries. They were good too. And since we ended up having a late lunch, it was also my dinner. That was good since it wasn't exactly a low calorie lunch. :)
We had lots of laughs and a fun time together. It was a nice way to spend a Saturday. And good since we hadn't sen any of them since Christmas.
So be sure to stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog  and link up your drink related post for T day. :) I have a busy day ahead so I might be a little late responding to your blog.I hoped to get more done this morning before work but my computer decided to update and took forever. But I haven't forgotten and should be able to stop by tonight
Thanks for visiting my blog. :)

What a nice family photo. Your meal looks good. I would have substituted the regular fries for sweet potato fries. I never would have guessed the drink on the right was water as it looks blue. Makes me think of some sort of tropical drink. Happy T Day!

How nice to have had the chance to get together and enjoy a day of fun and good food! I like your idea of having a hearty meal like that mid day and then not eating later. Good way to make up for the calorie splurge:)Happy T day!

I love Sebago Brewing Company and have been there many times ๐Ÿ˜. I've actually had the turkey panini too - so yummy! I'll give the hard cider a miss and go for a beer or a glass or two of their sangria which tastes amazing ๐Ÿ˜€. Glad you had such a fun time with your family and wishing you a Happy T Day! J ๐Ÿ˜Š

What fun! Sweet family time, and the food looks delicious :) I think I'd get what you got. Those onion rings! Happy T Tuesday

I realize I'm late visiting. I was up all night and slept in today. I apologize.

What a great way to spend a Saturday, and an even better way to spend time with family. You have such a great group of family and are so lucky to have them. I loved seeing all the drinks on the table, and enjoyed your beer, even though it isn't dark enough for my taste (grin). Also, since I just got up, I am starving and your panini and onion rings are really making me want something right now. Thanks for taking us with you to Saturday lunch and for sharing your various drinks with us for T this Tuesday, dear Erika.

It looks like you had a lovely time and meal out with your family.
The restaurant looked lovely and the meal you chose sounds delicious. Those onion rings would have been my choice as well.
Happy T day wishes Erika.

a meal with family and laughter is the best kind of meal! great photo with wonderful smiles! happy T/beer day!

Lisca Meijer said...

What a great family gathering! The drinks and food look good too.
Commisarations (don't know how to spell that) on the superbowl. If I am not mistaken, the team you like has lost. (am I right?) So I think you were not a happy bunny.
Happy T-Day,
Lisca

Looks like a lovely family outing! Xx

Jeanie said...

That looks like loads of fun -- and you all seem to be having the best family time! Lots of yum right there!

Carol said...

Everyone looks happy and that food looks so good! Family outings are so fun! Thanks for sopping by my blog! There won't be any serious gardening here for two months either. The seeds I planted the other day have to freeze and thaw in order to sprout. They won't actually sprout until the normal planting season. We got a we bit of snow and ice last night but just a few miles north of us got hit heavy. So far the big stuff has missed us this year. I really would like a couple of good snowfalls before Spring gets here.
My cold is till trying to hang in there and I"m really tired of it!!!
Take care and Happy Belated T Day!
Carol
