As promised, I am back to writing on my food blog. In August, we had an amazing drive across country. We drove the northern route through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin and onto South Dakota. Since we were ahead of schedule to get to our new home ahead of our moving truck, we took a couple days off to see some sights in South Dakota and Wyoming. We enjoyed the geologic wonders of the Badlands, Mount Rushmore and spending some time in the Tetons. After that we drove through northern Idaho and across Washington State to the Olympic Peninsula to our new home in Port Ludlow.
Along the way, Dave and I enjoyed many delicious meals in every state. We had an authentic German dinner in La Crosse, Wisconsin. We also savored fresh trout in Idaho and Salmon in Washington. The move went well, and we made the drive of 3300 miles in one week.
This month’s recipe is Sesame Ground Chicken with Rice. This is easy to prepare, and I consider it to be an Asian dish. It was the first dinner I made in my kitchen. This kitchen is a fixer upper and a far cry from the nice kitchen I had in Delaware. But that renovation will take some time.
The footer photo is my ancient stove with two old ovens. One oven is above the range (where microwave’s go these days) and the other oven is below the range. There are only 2 knobs to operate the 4 burners. Luckily, all my new kitchen appliances are due to arrive in late October. Dave and I are hoping the refrigerator and dishwasher will last until then.
We are looking forward to fall and I hope you are as well!
