I know everyone is anticipating this trip, possibly more than me? I am like “REAL, this is REAL…will we REALly get in the car and begin on June 1st, 2019???
YES is the answer…I hope:)
Here is the official first week of our trip. I am sorry to disappoint those of you who are watching with anticipation the camping portion of our trip. You will need to wait a week. Victoria and I need to ease into this trip and we begin the first week with hotels and an overnight stay with wonderful friends.
Lake Placid 6 Hrs
Niagra Falls 7 hrs
Cincinnati, Ohio 3 1/2 Hrs
Casey, Illinois 2 Hrs
St. Louis, Missouri 5 Hrs
Dyersville, Iowa 10 1/2 Hrs
Mt. Rushmore, South Dakota 8 Hrs
Now, the question is…why, Casey Illinois? and why, Dyersville, Iowa?
You will have to wait and follow the blog for the answer:)
Graduation weekend of course brought us all together and my son, Bowen home from L.A.#HappyMom!!
Bowen was snooping around (just kidding) LOOKing at my lists I had on the kitchen counter…too many details for this trip not to have a list or many lists!
He said “Mom, why are there eggs on your list? You will need to cook them and refrigerate them too”
Well, I am LOOKing for protein while on our trip. Traveling with a vegetarian will actually be easier from a food standpoint but eggs are on the list for protein. I have read hard-boiled eggs in the shell can be refrigerated up to one 1 week and will be stored in the cooler.
Now, if we were traveling in UE countries we would be all set because they sell eggs unwashed and unwashed eggs will last at least two weeks unrefrigerated.
However, the US requires them to be washed?? Don’t you wonder why?
I have a cooler to store the hard-cooked eggs (which I will prepare in advance) and the uncooked eggs will be used quickly. I am sure you are wondering how I will scramble eggs while on the road.
I am so excited I have figured out how to cook scrambled eggs in my electric kettle which plugs into the car port. I am sure you are wondering why? or how? Why, because…why not?
Step 1. Boil water in the kettle.
Step 2. Crack the egg into a small glass cup.
Step 3. Scramble egg in glass cup with a fork
Step 4. Place glass cup with the egg inside boiling water in the kettle
Step 5. Wait patiently and stir eggs occasionally
Step 6. Add salt to taste, and eat!!
I know you are saying this doesn’t work. Ahhh but it does!
This trip is supposed to be fun. Isn’t this fun! I had fun figuring this out in my kitchen last week.
Of course, we all know while doing this on the road, might not be as fun but I am willing to try!
This is getting REAL!!!!
