Wordful Wednesday: Carrot Cake and Goodbye


There needs to be a book written about how good that carrot cake was. That's how many words it would take. A picture is so inadequate. It was bliss, people. It was better than Whole Foods' Carrot Cake. I thought (prided myself, even) that I made a good carrot cake. Then I tasted this cake... and my life was changed. It had home made icing even! And those little ginger-bread people on top.

Of course, I'm exaggerating about my life being changed (unless you want to count the extra pounds I probably am wearing)... but I'm not exaggerating about my recipe needing to be changed. I'm going to exact this recipe from Aunt Mary. 'Resistance is futile'. She 'will be assimilated'.

So there's my photo for today's "Wordless Wednesday"... and as I sat looking at it, I just couldn't let it post without something being said about how delicious it was. If only blogs were edible, right? You with me here? Because THAT would be what I wanted my blog to taste like. And everything else in my life, too... besides Breakfast Tacos. Of course.


So this is what I do before a long 3,000 mile trip. I ramble into the night online when I should be sleeping or packing or paying bills. Procrastination is a disease. I'm pretty sure it is fatal.

The day wasn't a total loss... I did get the maps. One big fold-out to mutilate, spill coffee on, mark up with highlighters and all sorts of pens, and certainly fold the wrong way so it won't look good any more.... and another expensive 2008 USA spiral-bound map that shows close-ups of big cities.

And we went to art class. And Robotics - where the boys worked on their introductions for the contest.

And we ate breakfast tacos. Because who can go on a trip without breakfast tacos? Who can just endure a day without breakfast tacos? I am going to have to pay someone off at that taco joint so I can find out where they get their bacon. There's another item that needs to go in the food hall of fame. Mmmmm. I'm making myself hungry.

So I thought I would come in here and dump my brain out before bed... and update my Dashboard for the trip. And I did. And I started a bunch of sentences with conjunctions. Which was nice.

Now that you want some breakfast tacos with your carrot cake, I'll go. My job is done. I hope you have a super Wordless Wednesday.

Time for bed.

Tomorrow is Thursday and you'll be getting an update from SisLisa in here as we document our roadtrip. She's tomorrow's guest author. The next time I post will be next week after we return home. I'll be checking in when we have internet access along the way.

Happy Trails for me!

Oh...and just what are 'breakfast tacos?' I have started many, many mornings without them and I am seriously wondering what I am missing.

Breakfast Tacos are God's blessed provision - the Holy Grail of breakfast foods.

Home made flour tortillas
Deliciously scrambled eggs with butter
Melted cheddar cheese
Crisp chunked bacon (no fat) - chopped and fried
Pico de Gallo with fresh tomato, onion, cilantro, and serrano peppers
Home made salsa
Salt and Pepper

I notice that cake was almost GONE! Isn't it amazing that you can make something so decadent out of carrots?

Have an amazing journey; if you get lost, detour towards GA. :-) Let me know when I'm posting for you!
