Just a quick post before my daughter and I head out the door for a road trip to Mobile, Alabama with several stops on the way. I am beyond thrilled that my soon to be 14-year-old daughter wants to go anywhere with me. Her main motivation is to see friends in Alabama, and I am her means of getting there, but I’ll take what I can get.

Our first stop is in Greenville, SC where if all goes as planned and we don’t have a heat stroke, we will bike ride the Swamp Rabbit Trail and stop for lunch in Travelers Rest. After we spend the day in Greenville, we will head to Atlanta for a day and then on to Mobile. Hopefully we have lots of adventures in store, all of them fun ones.

Anyways, I have spent hours searching the internet for restaurants and things to do in the places we’ll be visiting and I haven’t had much time to cook. Peanut Sesame Noodles is a wonderful recipe for when you are short on time. Bring some water to a boil while you throw all the ingredients for the sauce into a blender and chop a few veggies, boil the noodles and toss everything together. Cut back on the red pepper flakes if you don’t want it spicy. This is a meal the whole family will enjoy and it tastes good at room temperature or even chilled.
