    We at Midlife Road Trip believe in pursuing our passions. I have always been passionate about travel. But over the last few months in working on various projects for Sanderson Farms, I have developed a serious passion for cooking and eating chicken. As a result, I’ve been inspired to proudly proclaim that “I’m a Chicken Man!” While I’m not an especially good singer, there’s no denying I loves me some chicken!  I hope this music video will inspire […]

    Behind the Scenes at the Michel-Schlumberger Winery

      We went behind the scenes at the Michel-Schlumberger winery in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma, California where we learned a thing or two about organic farming from winemaker and vice president of production, Mike Brunson.

    Super Bowl Buffalo Chicken Dip #SandersonFarms ad

    After fattening myself up over the holidays, one of my perennial new year’s resolutions is to eat a healthier diet. I usually do pretty well sticking to it until the Super Bowl rolls around. I inevitably find myself at a party, watching the game, and succumbing to peer pressure by indulging in pizza, beer, whoopee pies, and football shaped Cocoa Krispies treats. For the last several months I have been on a self imposed low-carb […]

    Blackened No-Carb Fried Chicken #SandersonFarms ad

    As a southerner, I love fried chicken. The only problem is, I’m on a low-carb diet and the breading is carb city. Rather than giving in to temptation, I decided to engage in a little experimentation. After a few disastrous attempts I finally hit on something that worked wonderfully as a substitute for traditional flour or cornmeal breading – Pork Rinds!  Yes, pork rinds! During my low-carb adventure, pork rinds have satisfied my cravings for […]
