New Beginnings

After 31 years in Delaware, we are moving to Portland, Oregon.  My husband has been there for over a year, so it is time to get my two guys back together.


But before we start our new lives there, it is time for a cross-country adventure with my boy and my dog!


Layered on top of this is my recovery from a concussion; until my husband joins us in South Dakota, I will be driving only 3 to 4 hours a day.  This will give us plenty of time each day to explore parks, towns, and farmstands along the way. I am looking forward to finding local specialties and will definitely be gathering local jams and honey along our way.  I would love any suggestions for things to do (especially with a 10 year old and a dog), foods to eat, or special farmstands and wineries.



Our 6 week countdown begins today, we leave for western Maryland on July 19!


I am looking forward to being able to blog again, and hope you will join us on our trip.  And, if I come up with any interesting concoctions as I try to use up the various items in my pantry, fridge and freezer (using all those fruits and veggies I have preserved or frozen), I will share them.  But I am really excited about new foods to cook with and new farmers to meet…I can’t wait!




Let me know what you think of this post, and if you try the recipe, please let me know how it was and any suggestions you have. Thanks, Andrea
