Greetings from the road!
I’m blogging from my phone again and currently en route to Rhode Island! I’ve been on the road almost 9 hours now.
I didn’t want to miss out on the WIAW fun again (thanks to the lovely Jenn for hosting!!) so please bare with my photos–all taken through a camera phone.
We were supposed to leave around 9am this morning, but as usual, we didn’t make it out the door until a couple hours later.
I didn’t get the memo that we weren’t leaving at 9am so my breakfast was all to-go style. And eaten at home.
Half a wheat bagel topped with almond butter, bananas, and honey.
Rounded out with a pb & chocolate protein smoothie.
Since we were behind schedule, lunch was eaten in the car. Apparently there is at least one Sonics in every small town/middle of nowhere town in Texas…so Sonic’s it was!
After perusing their menu I settled for a breakfast burrito. Basically a flour tortilla with egg, onions, jalapeños, and tater tots. That last one was a surprise to me.
I thought the tater tot was wrapped in there by accident at first, but after a couple bites i realized there were more inside. I guess that’s why it was called the “supersonic” breakfast burrito.
Dessert was some dried mango slices. Dried fruits are one of my favorite road trip foods.
Easy to pack and even easier to eat
Many sweet potato tortilla chips were also consumed between lunch and dinner.
I’m pretty sure snacking and road trips go hand in hand
We finally stopped around 8:30pm for dinner at Rendevous in Memphis, Tennessee.
Its famous for its charcoal ribs, but since i don’t eat pork I went with the charcoal charbroiled chicken breast with double coleslaw (since the beans are cooked with pork).
I ended up making it into a sandwich. The coleslaw was SO sour, but I love it that way.
Guess who’s eaten here before??
Julia Childs! I was pretty darn excited when I saw that!
I don’t think we’ll make it out of Tennessee tonight, but we’ll probably get pretty close.
Ok, its my turn to drive! Night oaties!
Do you like road trips? Or do you prefer flying? – I guess it depends where I go…if it’s scenic or not. I also hate turbulence, but flying is just SO much faster
