I’ve been on the go so much this year that I seem to be permanently behind in writing up my experiences.
In the last year I have:
Cruised with Holland America to Mexico with extended family
Went to Las Vegas for business (twice)
Visited family in San Diego
Visited family in New York (Long Island with a day trip into Manhattan)
Stayed at a family camp in the Sierras here in California (twice)
Explored Chicago for a week
Checked out Denver (for business) and the Rocky Mountains
Spent a long weekend in Napa Valley at a reunion of work colleagues
Traveled to Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia and Hungry
And I am probably forgetting some trip somewhere.
Of course while I ate on all these trips, some of the experiences were not food blogging “worthy” so I don’t have resources, photos, recipes and write ups to share on all of them, but I am trying to get caught up on sharing as much as I can.
The only ones I’ve really written up are my Las Vegas trips, which you can read about by clicking the link above. I hope to write up my notes and share photos about Chicago, Denver, cooking class on the cruise and my recent Eastern Europe adventure soon. But if you ever wonder why I get so behind sometimes, my wanderlust is certainly part of the reason.
Photo Info: Play with Your Food -- at the Chicago History Museum, kids can take apart this giant hot dog and reassemble it with the "condiments" of their choice. The favorite way young Chicagoans played with the exhibit? Using their kid brothers or sisters for the hot dog and covering them with all the "trimmings."
