taylor takes a taste goes west…

Dear Readers,

Today I am in Madison,WI. Well I was supposed to arrive two days ago, but storms in Chicago canceled my flight, so I arrived a day late.  Anyway, I made it here. The reason for the visit is that this morning I am beginning a western road with my old college roommate and teammate Brett.

We will be traveling to:

Lincoln, NE

Fort Collins, CO

Salt Lake City, UT

Las Vegas, NV

Santa Barbara, CA

and ending in Pasadena, CA.

I can not wait to see what food I discover along the way. I would love any food suggestions that you could give me on the way. This is not my first time driving across the country. Almost a year ago exactly I drove the opposite direction and went from Santa Barbara, CA to Charlotte, NC. Here is a video summary of it. Thanks for your help!

I have had meatloaf a few times in my life, but it was not a staple of my family’s meals. I have no “mother’s meatloaf” standard that many Americans may have. This being said, I did not know what to expect when I ordered the meatloaf sandwich at Sandwhich in Chapel Hill.

I love salsa, especially peach salsa. With peaches at the height of their season right now, it is the perfect time to make peach salsa. The problem is that making the salsa is time consuming and fresh salsa will not last for weeks in the fridge. You have to preserve it some how. How do you do this? You can it!
