Road Trip

Five days, over 2300 miles and we are back home. We traveled to NY for my dad's 80th birthday and also managed to throw in a surprise bridal shower for Kristina.  Everything went off without a hitch!  I hope to be back in the kitchen soon but here are a few pictures of what we experienced back east....

Kristina's surprise shower was held at a Tea House

Gotcha - Kristina was very surprised!

This was a delicious chicken salad with a cranberry-orange sauce

Berry Tart

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake

Lemon Mousse Cake
Dad and Grandpa turns 80 -hope he doesn't mind his picture is here :-)

I'm thinking he looks pretty good for 80!

In the last hour we were in Endicott, we stopped at 3 food places - Lupo's Char Pit, Custard Corner and Roma's Bakery... so yes, the diet begins tomorrow!

This is a cheeseburger sub - has a delicious oil/vinegar sauce - love it!
The reason we go to Lupo's - spiedies!**
The best fries - served in a paper bag!

I had the baby cup of vanilla custard

Last stop - Roma's then time to hit the road and the 18 hour trip (done in 2 days!)

 I love going back "home" - to visit family and eat!!!!

**Here's tonight's history lesson on spiedies (click here)


  1. Looks like you had a great time! Can't wait to hear more! Welcome back!

  2. Oh Cheri - didn't mean to make you homesick! But I have something for you at home... and it is not spiedie sauce! I didn't shop for anything to bring back...our car was full!
