Day 256 took me to Iowa to see my family. I left Chicago a little later than expected and had to deal with some bad traffic, but it was all worth it when I got to Iowa and, among other things, got to eat my dad’s cooking.
Since his children left the nest, he has had more time to experiment in the kitchen and is now the primary chef at my parents’ house. This was a sort-of make your own kabob dinner with the most flavorful and juicy chicken I have ever had, delicious grilled veggies, grilled pineapple and toasted bread with homemade (not home churned) garlic butter. I wish I had a picture, but I ate so fast I didn’t have time. I mean, it was delicious, need I say more?
