Foods you need to try [Rhody style]

Saturday was my best friend's birthday!  Mike and I went down to RI for a visit, and in addition to great fun and friends, there was also fantastic food!
She has the cutest dog ever!!

Fresh quahogs on the grill: You probably haven't heard of quahogs before, have you?  Well, unless you watch Family Guy... but these guys were the real thing!  Shannon's boyfriend caught them that morning.  You just throw them on the grill for a few minutes until they open, then add a couple drops of hot sauce and enjoy!

Dorito salad: I hadn't heard of this one before, but it was AMAZING!  All it takes is a head of romaine, some taco-seasoned and cooked ground beef, black beans, shredded cheddar, 
crushed nacho cheese Doritos, all tossed in Russian dressing.  It is so addicting!

Brownie and fruit kebobs: these are what I brought.  I actually found this recipe on Shannon's Pinterest page.  She wouldn't tell me what to bring, so I thought it would be fun to make something she had pinned.  Another great use of Pinterest - making people exactly what they want! 

Oh, and I didn't mention, in addition to Odin [her dog], my sister has chickens! Yes, she is the country girl and I'm the city suburban one.  How awesome would it be to never have to buy eggs again??

That's so funny, last week I wrote an article about Rhode Island food to try! Can't say I've ever tried anything listed here, though, haha. I'd love to try quahogs sometime!

Those kebobs are such a good idea. And that salad is pretty interesting, I think I will have to try it!

Sorry, I'm so far behind on reading and commenting on blogs, so this is like a week late! haha I make this awesome chicken & dorito casserole that's always a huge hit (may need to put it on the blog), but I'm excited to try that dorito salad you shared! And I love the idea of using people's pinterest board to make them something they'd like! What a great idea! :)
