You Never Know

I am blessed to be able to travel all over the country on business trips with my husband. Yesterday,  however, was truly amazing. Starting from Brea, California, we traveled to Midway Airport in Chicago and had lunch at Harry Carey's. 

A unique gourmet experience was savoring their homemade potato chips served with blue cheese and buffalo sauce. I could not stop eating these!

Next, we flew into Branson, Missouri barely in time to freshen up, then board a horse drawn wagon which carried us to the chuckwagon cookout next to the lake. 

 I'm telling you what, I have a new respect for what the pioneers suffered riding over those bumpy roads!

The cookout was delicious - grilled steak, slaw, baked beans, cheese bisquits, corn on the cob and blueberry cobbler with ice-cream for dessert.

Sitting out under the stars was a real treat. Visiting with my husband's clients from all over the east coast was fascinating. 

To top off the evening (and a very long day) the Big Cedar Lodge did a fireworks display.
A perfect ending to a fun travel day.  Tonight - the formal dinner. Tomorrow night - the riverboat dinner cruise. Who knows? Maybe Jillian Bradley and Teddy will uncover a murder mystery at the lodge. Better finish my edits and get ready for dinner.

Have a great weekend, ya'll. Signing off from Branson, Missouri.

See you in my books!
