Well, it’s almost that time of the year for us…. SPRING BREAK! Oh how I’ve been waiting. Work has been incredibly hectic and I did not take a vacation last year due to my work load, but you better believe, spring break, I will be off and relaxing.
My sons are excited for spring break as well and are looking forward to getting away, relaxing, and counting down to the end of the school year.
This spring break we will be at my parents house in the country. My parents have a home in GA. In a small town with a population less that 800 people. One sheriff and everyone knows each other. Homes are separated by large acres of land, and dogs and cats roam freely, looking for you to provide their next meals. We’ve “adopted” quite a few dogs over the years and they know when we are there, they will have their fill of food and plenty of fresh water to drink.
If you have ever traveled to a small town, you will know that major grocery retailers are normally located in city, which is about 20-30 minutes away from the small town you are in. Mom and Pop grocery stores are plentiful, but also come with a major price tag and lack the allergy friendly foods we need. We normally pick up the majority of our groceries in town at stores like Wal-mart, Publix, Sam’s Club, Target before leaving for the country, but I also like to make things at home, freeze them, pack them in the cooler on ice, and take them on our trip. Once we reach our destination (my parent’s home), they are put away.
For the next few weeks, I will feature on this blog, recipes that I will be preparing for our trip. They are easy to prepare, freezable, and will save a lot of time while we are vacationing. Recipes featured in the upcoming weeks will include: Grain Free Chicken Nuggets, corn dogs, yucca fries, Asian inspired meals, empanadas, pancakes, waffles, cookies, and donuts.
