Before we left I made breakfast of french toast, fried bologna (husband), and one of the cans of cinnamon rolls I bought earlier in the week at Meijers.
We also took apples, bananas, water, pop, and my homemade trail mix along on our trip for snacks. I followed this recipe but I omitted the pumpkin seeds and cranberries (it's soo good).
I ran out to the recycle bin just before the trash men came and dug out resturant coupons that I had ditched. Yep, that was me in my housecoat.
