I’m adjusting…err, well, trying to adjust. There’s a lot of things brewing and bubbling and I think my head is just completely spinning. I’m finding I’m having a hard time figuring out what I want and what is best for me right now. Like I said a lot of brewing going on and unfortunately it hasn’t included one of these…
Don’t worry, I’ll get on that soon! 😉
Anyway, there will be more on that later after I have time to process, research and get my feet grounded again. For now, it’s Wednesday and that means we’re due for a fun What I Ate Wednesday: moving edition!
Hotel breakfasts are challenging for me. The “hot” breakfast is the new craze which often includes eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, pastries and sugared cereal.
If I’m lucky, I’ll find an oatmeal bar, peanut butter and a banana and I’d never know I was eating anywhere else. (I wasn’t so lucky with peanut butter at our first hotel but the second and third pulled through!)
My mom went to Illinois State University and there’s this restaurant she used to eat at all the time in college called Avanti’s. She took my dad many years ago and as a kid, we used to stop any time we drove through the area. Of course as my dad and I were traveling through we had to stop for an early dinner and get some sandwiches to go. (It’s ALL about the bread!) I had the second half of my veggie sandwich with a side of fruit for lunch the next day.
And after you get back from driving 36 hours, you must be crazy if you think anyone wants to make dinner…even the next day. So my parents took us out for mexican food at our favorite local place – Pablo’s.
I went for the fish tacos
And of course a margarita!
Another one of our “must stops” while traveling through is in St. Louis. My dad grew up here and one of their favorite spots as a kid was Ted Drewes frozen custard. Maybe it’s nostalgia or maybe it’s just that good. I went for a kiddie Reese’s sundae (I was trying to make sure I was less sick from the custard…I’m not sure how well that worked) but it was delicious!
Do you have any “must-stops” when you’re traveling?
Any particularly good eats this week?
