Kitchen Road Trip: Iowa

Kitchen Road Trip: Iowa // Feast + West

Good morning! I hope you had a nice weekend and a lovely Easter, if you celebrated! I spent the weekend visiting with family, attending a concert and celebrating Easter with family friends. Oh, and I baked a pie, too! The first (but absolutely not the last) of the season. Overall, it was a busy weekend, yet oddly relaxing and cathartic.

I learned through researching Iowa for this week’s Kitchen Road Trip that Iowans like to quote the movie ‘Field of Dreams‘ by saying, “Is this heaven? No, it’s Iowa.” And I can see why. This Midwest state seems to be chock-full of all things lush and green. Perhaps that’s because Iowa is the nation’s largest producer of corn and ethanol — a fitting fact in light og Earth Day tomorrow. Though I have yet to visit the Hawkeye State, I’m certain a road trip through Iowa would be quite heavenly indeed. // susannah
