From Niagara Falls, we made our way back into the Midwest to Columbus, Ohio. We are here to visit our son and daughter in law, Andy and Natasha. Since Christmas, our only other family visit was with our niece in Birmingham, Alabama back in April. We pulled a “Cousin Eddie” (the movie Christmas Vacation) and drove our rig right into their cul-de-sac and began dumping our tanks in the storm sewer. NO, we are just kidding. We are camped at a super nice RV park north of Columbus. It is great to see them. They bought a house right around the time they were getting married late last year and have been very busy whipping it into shape.
This week also marked Gary’s second birthday since we moved into the motor home. We were also in Ohio last year for his birthday as well. This year Andy and Natasha took us out to our favorite BBQ house in Columbus, Barley’s Smokehouse. We highly recommend it if you are ever Columbus way.
I didn’t bake Gary a cake, but I did make one of his favorite desserts – the Boone family recipe Sugar Crème Pie. The “custard” is milk, sugar, butter, vanilla, corn starch, and a pinch of salt cooked on the stove top and then poured into a baked pie crust and topped liberally with cinnamon.
