The hotel provided a breakfast but we have gluten sensitivities and their breakfasts are usually all sugary carb food. I have found bringing hard boiled eggs, yogurt, and our own cereal as a good solution. I also bring large containers of pasta salad (one made with gluten free noodles) and bean dip to eat with tortilla chips for lunches.
We take vitamins and supplements on a daily basis that I bring along but I also bring any herbs we might need if anyone were to become sick. I'm not a big fan of using Advil for small fevers but we once were away when our daughter spiked a 104.3 temp in the middle of the night. So now I always bring it along. It can be difficult if you are in an unknown area to find what you need, especially at night.
I drink lots of tea everyday so my tea and honey always go along. I had run out of raw honey right before we left but found this organic honey bear in the pantry. It actually worked well for my many trips to the lobby for hot water for tea.
Lehman's is my favorite store. My husband had a meeting with their corporate office one day so the children and I had several hours to wander around. Their catalog is great but being there and getting to actually touch things is fantastic. The pottery section is dreamy. And the cast iron section. All of it really. I picked up a few small items that I had wanted to get or had run out if since last being there.
Ok, the lamp wasn't on the list but we needed a smaller one and this one was just so pretty. It has a heart on the bottom pink part.
We are big sauerkraut eaters in our house. Raw sauerkraut is so benificial to our gut health. I have made it before with not much luck. I have bought it mostly. Our neighbor man makes the best kraut. He gave us a gallon for Christmas and we've eaten over half if it. My children will eat it in a bowl with a fork. I put it on the table with most every meal. I have wanted a fermenting crock for several years and Lehman's now carries made in the USA crocks. I am so grateful to have this beautiful 3 gallon crock. Hoping my neighbor man can help us get our kraut to turn out as good as his! We will be going back to Ohio again in March and we're all really looking forward to it!
