On The Road With Kitchen Warfare

One Comment

i75 Road Trip! Sounds great right? I’d love to tell you that some megacorp was sponsoring an insightful journey into the American heartland and back roads in an amazing culinary adventure (you know, like our hero Alton Brown does) but that would be about as far from the truth as is possible. Instead we’re taking a trip 800 miles from northern KY to my home state of FL to check out the condition of our rental property in rural Old Town that was abruptly and mysteriously vacated by the last tenant.

Normally I prefer a road trip to any other method of travel. I absolutely love Americana – from our food to our divergent local cultures and staying off the highways and on the back roads is my real idea of the prefect vacation.

But this trip is nothing like that. It’s a grueling 13+ hour drive down the most monotonous stretch of highway as can possibly exist in a large populated country, I-75. All my life I have had to travel up and down this ugly stretch of asphalt and I simply dread the idea of wasting another day of my life on it.

Day One

And that day was today. Foodwise I made a loaf of bread for some sandwiches to cut down on the # of stops. We don’t know the state of the property yet so after the 800 mile drive we took a motel room in Lake City, FL and got some Chinese takeout from China Wok (also in Lake City). While I never mention we may write about a food establishment on Kitchen Warfare I do tend to talk about food to anyone who will listen and or answer questions. Starving to death back in the motel room when we unwrapped the packages and opened all the delicious smelling containers we were delighted to find that the good folks at China Wok had put a few extras in our bag marked ‘free’. Nice folks and the food was excellent. My only regret was that we didn’t have enough room in our cooler to keep the huge amount of leftovers.
