Hello, my friends! I hope your afternoon is shaping up quite nicely and that your day is going well. (I figure that’s a better blog welcome than me crapping all over Tuesdays like I did in my morning post, right? Woooo Tuesday!)
I worked through the morning before taking a break to deliver lunch to the seniors on my Meals On Wheels route. Chili was on the menu for today which made me smile since I thought Ryan and I might be the only crazies to eat “summer chili” when it’s in the ‘90s in Florida.
Once I completed my route and dropped the empty cooler and some paperwork off at the senior services center, I drove home ready to make myself lunch since the smell of food in my car revved my appetite.
Today’s lunch was a little unusual.
I wasn’t sure what I was going to think about mackerel, but as a big fan of other forms of canned fish (tuna + salmon), I figured I would give it a shot. It ended up tasting an awful lot like canned tuna, so I treated it similarly and made myself a mackerel salad wrap with mayo, Dijon mustard, onion, green pepper and tomato.
Served with a side of roasted Brussels sprouts!
20 Places Every American Should See
As someone who loves traveling and exploring new areas, articles featuring “must see” destinations always catch my eye. A recent article from Budget Travel listed 20 places every American should see and I thought it was really interesting. I figured it might intrigue you guys as well!
According to Budget Travel these are the 20 places every American should see in their lifetime:
- Grand Canyon
- Yellowstone National Park
- Highway 1, California
- Magic Kingdom (Orlando, Florida)
- Times Square, New York City
- Las Vegas Strip
- Hollywood Walk of Fame
- South Beach (Miami, Florida)
- French Quarter (New Orleans, Louisiana)
- Gettysburg National Military Park
- Nashville, Tennessee
- National Mall, Washington, D.C.
- Independence National Historical Park (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
- Taos Pueblo, New Mexico
- Fenway Park (Boston, Massachusetts)
- Civil Rights District (Atlanta, Georgia)
- Architecture in Chicago, Illinois
- Pearl Harbor
- Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City
- Ellis Island, New Jersey
What do you think?
I was surprised to see Mount Rushmore left off the list! I feel like that destination makes nearly every “must see in America” travel list, though I’ve never personally seen it.
Question of the Afternoon
- What destination in the United States do you think should be added to the list? (It doesn’t have to be a widely acclaimed place, just somewhere you love!)
- If you could pick one destination from the above list to visit, where would you choose to go?
