Road Food for Teens

Thursday: Curried Chicken Salad

Hopefully, you have more chicken left over than my family does. We only have one drumstick so no chicken salad tonight. Moving on to pasta!!

Reflections from the Backcounter

Road Trip to Oceanside. tomorrow we depart for Oceanside and the turn in ceremony for our CCI Puppy, O'Hanna. She has completed the first stage of her journey to become a service dog for a handicapped person in our home and is now going on to attend advanced training at the CCI campus in Oceanside. This is going to be a bittersweet trip. We want her to live to fulfill her destiny but she has become a treasured member of our family and will be sorely missed. It seems like yesterday that we went to the airport to pick up a little butterball of an eight week old puppy to begin her life with us. We are sad and not looking forward to the long drive, gas prices and fatigue. We hope to make the trip a little brighter with good road food for teens and moms. So far our menu for the road will include:

Breakfast egg, bacon and cheese burros. (Made ahead and wrapped in foil to be eaten later on the road)

Sandwich wraps (tuna and turkey with lettuce and cheese)


Sun chips

Sparkling water and bottled water

Coffee in a thermos for the moms and hot chocolate for the kids.


Chewy bars

Goldfish crackers and mozzarella sticks.

Wish us well and say a prayer for O'Hanna!

It takes a special kind of selfless love to raise an adorable little blonde butterball of a puppy and then say farewell to those large brown trusting eyes so that she can change the life of someone you don't even know. I'm having trouble even typing this, so I don't know how you'll avoid tears when the time comes to let O'Hanna go. I'll definitely be praying for her, and for you and the kids.

Julia, I give you credit for the wonderful job, of raising the dog, knowing you will have to let him/her go. It is a sad/happy thing to do. Cheers to you, have a safe trip. Love the kids menu for the trip. Jane
