We’re headed out to Gatlinburg tomorrow with my parents and sister. We are actually staying in “Scenic Wear’s Valley,” more toward Pigeon Forge. I am SO looking forward to it. Especially to this:
In case I haven’t mentioned it one or, oh, 100 times, I am a major bath girl. I love my long, hot baths with a good book. And a hot tub is like a good bath PLUS extra goodness. I plan on spending a lot of time in that baby.
The great thing about renting a house, cabin, condo, whatever, is that there is a kitchen so you don’t have to eat out every meal. Mr. V and I are bringing Pop-Tarts (only brown sugar cinnamon, of course–his breakfast of choice for the last 5 years), cereal, and strawberry muffins (assuming I do actually make them tonight). I’m also bringing all of the maple pork chops we made for my share of the Once a Month Cooking. That should be enough for all five of us and great to throw on the grill.
My mom and I have been going back and forth on other easy vacation meals we could make. I love these Aussie Meat Pies from Rachael Ray 365, but wonder if they are too heavy for summer fare. I keep thinking fresh, in season, grilling … hmm. We don’t have a grill at home so that’s not my forte, but it sounds SO good for a vacation in a cabin in the woods.
So. What are your suggestions?
