If you follow me on instagram, you saw our beautiful casa we enjoyed in La Quinta last weekend. It was just perfect, and we are always so grateful to our dear friends who share their desert home with us.
When it was just Eddie and me, a weekend road trip wasn't so planned. A place to stay was all we needed, but when it came to meals, activities, tee times or spa appointments, we were always very last minute. And I think that's because we enjoy the art of doing nothing to its fullest. No schedule needed.
I should add that it's easy to enjoy cooking on vacation when you're doing it in a beautiful kitchen with more tools than you'd ever need, an exploading planter of fresh herbs and a pantry full of seasonings, oils and such. Knowing all that, we packed and planned to make some of our favorite comfort foods that happen to be easy on the prep (and wallet!), including The BC's Summer Garden Pasta (with Mari's choice: orzo).
grilled turkey burgers with roasted sweet potatoes. Plus, the obligatory box of Cheez-its poolside. And, by the way, on night one, after realizing that in our organization we weren't quite as organized as we hoped, we ordered pizza. And it was perfection.
What are your favorites when you're on the road?
