Road Trip - Heading Home

I’m writing this on the way home from our “half way “cross country road trip.  Leaving is always bitter sweet; you’re happy to be heading home but sad to be leaving behind,  the people you love.  
I had an amazing visit with my son; we were able to have lots of mother son time.  One day, while he was at work I happily spent my day cooking, baking, and filling his freezer with home-made goodies.
One night of my visit we went out for a really great dinner...the appetizer we shared was called a “Ploughman’s Platter” and was filled with roasted garlic, sliced baguette, a couple different cheeses, pate, pickled onions, a garlic and onion relish and quail eggs!  I had never had them before and I was very excited to give them a try.  They were served whole and hard boiled.  They looked and tasted just like tiny regular eggs.
I was able to spend a couple more days in Chateauguay with my friends and their aunt and uncle.  Their aunt and uncle were so sweet to me; they took me in and treated me like one of the family.
I ate so much on this trip that I feel like I’m a stuffed turkey, ready for the oven.
Hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving!!
