Lucky for you, this recipe isn't online.
Man it is good to be home. Don't get me wrong: to a certain extent I like to travel. But there is a point past which it becomes a little painful. One of the ways in which traveling is challenging for me, especially when I'm driving everywhere, is the food. I am happy to eat fast food every once in a while -- in fact I even crave a McDonald's french fry now and then. But the last few weeks I have been on the road so much that I have eaten way more fast food than I wanted to. My car became littered with McDonald's bags (My favorite order: 6 piece Chicken McNuggets, Small Fries, and Apple Dippers), Burger King bags (Gardenburger (no mayo), Small Fries, and Small Vanilla Milkshake), and Wendy's bags (Broccoli and Cheese Baked Potato, Side Salad, and Small Chocolate Frosty). Moreover, despite my caffeine-free lifestyle I found myself forced to go back on it (several times I was so tired behind the wheel that I was worried I would fall asleep. Drinking Diet Coke seemed worth it to avoid being in a fiery car crash). So add to the trash heap of fast food bags a bunch of empty cups that once held Diet Coke, and now you have a pretty good idea of my diet these last few weeks. Gross. Gross, gross, gross. But now I am home, and the last couple days I have been subsisting off of some old favorites: yogurt and granola, cottage cheese, carrots, etc... Basically I have been eating some of the simple foods I love which are hard to come by on the road. Man, it is good to be home!
