Food Revolution Road Trip11 Starts NOW!

I owe all of you, dear readers, an apology.

This place has been bare, hasn't it? Bare of inspiration, of good stories, of what made it such a great place to hang out.

You see, I've been distracted. Besides the fact that life was overwhelming and I somehow tipped the balances of work/play into all work no play, I was on the road for the last two weeks.

The last two weeks my family has been traveling all over the USA, winding our way through 8 states vowing that we would NOT eat fast food, that I would pack our lunches from whatever I could cobble together from grocery stores in our hotel room, and we'd do the best we could to eat healthy while spending 14 days straight on the road. It's a challenge, to be honest-sometimes you just want quick and easy, and putting an effort to eating healthy can yield some pretty interesting results.

Over the last few months my life has been WAY out of balance-but somewhere along the way on this vacation I think I found it again. We traveled from the grasslands of South Dakota to the deserts of Utah, but along the way I discovered a lot about myself, my family, and how that silly balance thing isn't just a saying.

You, dear readers are invited to come along for the ride. Dust off your shoes-pack some sunscreen, it's going to get hot. There's buffalo. Watch out for the lizards. There's interesting people, and some wacky inventions, too. Also some really great food, but some really WEIRD food as well.

Food Revolution Road Trip is starting right NOW!
