Yup, we left Bar Harbor at 11am today and got to Boston right now - 9pm. I am not a happy camper.
On the upside, I *do* like road tripping to an extent, and the opportunity to catch up with my dad was nice. And my symposium presentation went off without a hitch.
My travels have begun, yippee!
Lunch on the road was this:
I had a toasted veggie delite with pepperjack cheese, mustard, *no* olives or peppers of any kind (ick) - yummaroo!
Then, for dessert, I had this tastiness:
A brownie bite from Erin Baker's Wholesome Baked Goods!
Ignore that it looks like a cookie - it does *not* taste like one. It's chocolatey as can be, with lovely chocolate chips and a rich decadent flavor - with an almost fudgy texture! And they're healthy?! Organic ingredients, 7% of my fiber RDI, what?
We drove a bit more, listened to Elton John on the radio (I'm obsessed with Crocodile Rock!), and eventually it was snack time So I whipped this out - an Orange-Cranberry Flavor & Fiber bar!
The texture of all of these bars seems to be the same - very chewy with some interesting surprise factor from the fruits, flax, and millet. Another thing they have in common? Intense flavors! Whatever flavor the bar promises, it *delivers.* This was very tangy-orangey and scrumptious.
My dad had the lemon ginger bar that I tried the other day and he really enjoyed it too.
And then we got lost for the first time...
UGH! This wifi is *so* slow. We're in a Motel 6 for the night, because my dad is infamously great (not) at making hotel reservations. Just this one night, though, because I booked my own hotel for Friday and Saturday night (a different one each night - though both by Hilton - I'm a regular hotel-hopper)!
I'll post dinner pics tomorrow, when I have a better connection.
Do you like road trips?
Are you a citrus person?
Who's your favorite old-time singer?
