Imagine Going There Travel - October 2022

“There are only two ways to live your life: One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” –ALBERT EINSTEIN


Barb and Lou will take their time over the next two weeks making their way from Bowling Green back to Southern California in their shiny new car and enjoying every mile along the way.

Then we talked with Rob Herr, Sr. of Iowa, who was accompanied by his son to get his new car. Rob started out years ago with a small farm and a large dream and now harvests 9,500 acres of corn and soybeans each year. His son, Rob, is carrying on the farming tradition and took his dad up on his offer to join him in picking up his Corvette. Rob

Sr. has owned other Corvettes, and his son has great memories of going on dates and to his prom in one.

I’ve made these simple biscuits for years. They’re very tender and flakey (aka crumbly!) but are quick to prepare. These biscuits nicely round out a dinner of soup or stew or can be served as part of a hearty breakfast. Biscuits Supreme

You could tell he was so proud of his dad for what he’s accomplished over his lifetime. Rob Sr. said there’s no limit to what you can do if you work hard enough. “Most of us live life backward — we work hard all of our lives and don’t take time to enjoy it until the end, and then it’s too late.”

Ingredients • 2 cups all-purpose flour • 1 tbsp baking powder • 1/4 tsp baking soda • 2 tsp sugar

While Rob said it took eight hours to drive to Bowling Green, he expected it to take five hours to get back!

• 1/2 tsp cream of tartar • 1/4 tsp salt • 1 stick butter • 3/4 cup buttermilk

It did my heart good to meet these folks — you could tell it wasn’t about owning a fancy car; it was about doing something together that brought a lot of fun and joy into their lives.

Directions 1. Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center; add buttermilk all at once. Stir just until dough clings together. Knead gently on a lightly floured surface for 10 to 12 strokes. Roll or pat to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter, dipping in flour between cuts. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake in 450 F oven for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. 2. Or you can do what I do and just drop large serving- size spoonfuls of dough onto a cookie sheet and bake until golden.

What is that for you?

For me, my joy was doubled … the first was sitting in the passenger seat watching my husband enjoy his Corvette

Experience (over 100 mph on the straightaway), and the second was when I was able to safely exit the car when we were done!
