My kitchen has been very uninteresting lately, but with good reason. Brett and I are going on vacation! This isn't your typical vacation either. We will be taking 5 weeks to drive across the country and back and see everything in between that we've never seen before. We'll visit Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, Boston, Niagara Falls, Seattle, Redwood National Park, and much much more. I'm so incredibly excited, but it has meant a lot of planning, hence the neglected kitchen. The picture is just a portion of the food we are taking on the road with us (those Mariani dried cherries are our new favorite snack...delicious!!!)

Now you've probably heard of dog-sitting or house-sitting while someone is on vacation, but this may be the first time you've heard of blog-sitting. Since I won't be cooking on vacation, I thought I would put my blog in some very trustworthy hands while I am gone...my Mom's! She is an excellent cook (aren't I always saying that nothing compares to Mom's cooking?) and her repertoire is different from mine. She's a little nervous about doing the blog, so please be patient. I'll pop in from time to time, (maybe if I eat something delicious on the road) but for the most part she's in charge. I'll miss you all and see you in July...but in the meantime...enjoy my mom's food!

Wow, Kim!! What an amazing trip! I've always dreamt of doing something like that. I can't wait to hear all about it. I hope you and Brett have an amazing time! I hope we can see you when you return!

Hey KIM! I am doing a similar trip in 4 weeks! Going to all the places in Europe I've never been which includes germany, belgium, holland and most of that side!- We're taking 6 weeks, isn't that a coincedence or do I just get ridiculously excited! YEAY! Have a blast! I dream of american roadtrips... someday!

I love the new colour by the way!

Oh I have always wanted to drive across Canada and the US. I hope you enjoy your trip and tell us all about it when you get back. I think the idea of a blog sitter is so funny! It will be cool to here from your Mum while you are away. Enjoy your trip.
