    The Ultimate Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe #SandersonFarms

    Being a foodie, I felt compelled to experiment at home with the ingredients that I thought was in the soup so I could make it for myself. After a few tries, I finally perfected it. In fact, I like my version a little better than El Ranchero’s (please don’t tell ‘em). Now it has become one of our go-to dishes for entertaining, watching football, and of course for anytime we’re feeling under the weather.

    Bacon Wrapped, Chicken Stuffed Jalapeños #SandersonFarms ad

    Tailgating is one of my favorite things to do with Midlife Road Trip. There’s something about the smell of charcoal, lighter fluid, and grilled meat that just makes me happy. I am always amazed at the quality and creativity tailgaters are able to exhibit in preparing food in a parking lot or on the quad of a college campus. It’s as though there is a competition among some of the tailgaters that is a serious […]

So when IHG Rewards Club offered to sponsor me on a trip to Chicago to help promote their #ShareForever promotion, I was like – Duh! Heck yeah I’ll do it! (Besides, the promotion is a great deal – […]

    Chicken Kebabs on Rosemary Skewers #SandersonFarms ad

    One of the things I love most about being a part of Midlife Road Trip is all of the great food I get to enjoy in our travels. Unfortunately six years of good eating had me weighing about 30lbs more that I did when I began this journey. If I had continued at this rate, it wouldn’t be long before I would be boarding cruise ships through the cargo door. Since writing about the food […]
