Prepare yourself for the longest post in the history of ever.
We had the most splendid time at home. It was relaxing, happy, crazy, peaceful, hilarious, emotional, & absolutely perfect. The entirety of my mom’s side of the family was there & spending time with them is always so much fun.
I’m originally from a small town called Moorhead in northern Minnesota, which is right on the border of Minnesota & North Dakota. I kinda consider myself to have grown up in both states since in that area, they’re just minutes apart and inevitably, you find yourself constantly going between the two.
We arrived the night of July 4th and immediately left the airport to see fireworks & play tag with mosquitoes. Spoiler alert: they won.
For the first little while we were there, although humid, the weather was cool enough for eating outside. Buuut by the time we left, the temperature had climbed into the 90s and the humidity was 95%! Uff da. So. Muggy!
Don’t mind my feet…haha 🙈
Rhubarb grows like a weed in the Midwest – it’s literally everywhere! My mom has a gigantic bush in her backyard. One of my favorite rhubarb recipes is a rhubarb upside down cake. I’ll have to share it with you guys!
During one of our mini roadtrips across North Dakota seeing family land, we stopped at a Mac’s Hardware & took a look at all their crazy soda flavors! Their collection is magnificent. I ended up getting a vanilla bean Jones soda and it was 👌👌👌
That little peak of water is the Missouri River!
Well hey, guys. Thanks for making it to the end of this post & thanks for being patient with me as I’ve been away & haven’t posted as much as I usually do! I’ll be back on Thursday with more foods! Y’all are the best 😘
