The notion of a road trip is as American as apple pie - maybe even moreso, actually, considering that the automobile was invented here and apple pie was more or less ripped off from the Germans. And when I think of classic Americana, few things invoke that for me more than open stretches of highway, rusted through street signs, and single-handedly consuming burgers and fries while sitting behind the wheel. Even though I've never had the pleasure of a cross country excursion, I can still indulge in the romance of it all, right?
Though I try to eat pretty healthy, it's tough in Napa sometimes...and I most definitely got my pumpkin fix today! This is the best milkshake of my life, made with local ice cream and organic milk, and available at Gott's for the month of November only. Then I have to wait a whole year for it again! Who needs a pumpkin spice latte when you could have this instead?! —↡Emma (@emmakmorris)↡
