Saturday we woke up to the sun shining and a nice ocean breeze, I could not wait to soak up the day.  I have been going to LBI for a few years now and have never been to the light house in Barnegat Light.  The place was packed and there was a mile long line to climb to the top.  I was satisfied with just staring at it and snapping a few pictures.  That and we wanted to get some food almost immediately.

If you watch Diners Drive-Ins and Dives you will notice this place.  It is called Mustache Bills and its your run of the mill Diner, Kitchenette, what ever you want to call it.  They are known for Pancakes, Omelets and Chipped Beef.

Of course I went with the chipped beef, who doesn't want dried beef in a cream sauce all over some hearty home fries.  Picture is a little out of focus, sorry!

Food adventures did not stop there.  We stopped at Okies Butcher Shop to get some skirt steak for the evening.  If you are on the island and looking for quality meat and grilling supplies, Okies is your place.

When we got back to the house it was time to prepare our meal.  We decided that the skirt steak would go well with a bernaise sauce, which we made with with fresh herbs and Dogfish Head brewed Saison Du Buff.

The beer I was drinking this weekend was'nt anything out of the ordinary.  I had some Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale and Torpedo but my favorite beer which I had not had since last year was Magic Hat's HI.P.A.  One of my favorite IPA's,  well balanced, you smell and tasted the citrus fruits all the way through with a very crisp and clean finish.

You cant be down at the beach with out having some seafood.  We hit up the local fishery for fresh scallops and shrimp.  Which we later put into a garlic sauce with some cooked dried chorizo.

The summer isn't officially over until late September but now its time to get into the darker and spicier brews of autumn.  Hope you enjoyed this post from our trip to LBI.  Cheers!!
