A week ago, J and I went on a little Midwest adventure to visit family and take a mini-vacation before returning to the routine. We drove from Atlanta to Illinois and then back again in the of span 5 days. We stopped in Chicago (my first visit!) and Louisville before the grand finale: Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. It was fantastic. J + the road + singalongs + open fields + new destinations. What's not to love? To make the trip a little better (and to save a little $$) I decided to pack up some goodies, made in our very own kitchen, to satiate J's need for delicious snacks while driving 11 hours. Eek! (This especially works if you're trying to clean out the fridge or cupboard before taking off for a bit.)
I'd love to call this one my own. Sadly, I'm relegated to saying that I can bake them fantastically, but certainly didn't think this one up. If you don't follow The Cozy Kitchen, please take a moment after reading to take a peek. You will thank me.
