Tuesdays with Dorie - Should have been...

Mrs. Vogel's Scherben which Teanna of Spork or Foon chose as this weeks recipe. While it sounded great (I mean it's fried dough! What's not to like!) I had to pass. I was out of town from Friday night until last night. Made a quick, but long trip to the far side of Kansas (Liberal) to pick up a 1970 Monte Carlo with my hubby. Said trip was done in 75 hours. Just over 3,000 miles. (That included a quick hop into Oklahoma, just to say we've been there!) I was too tired to play with dough, no matter how much I like fried dough. So, my apologies to Teanna and the rest of the group. I will be back next week raring to go! In the meantime, head over to TWD to see what the rest of the gang thought of this one.  Oh, and here's a couple of pictures of the car...

  1. That was a quick trip! How was the traveling weather? I've been through Liberal many times, but don't recall ever stopping.

  3. It was such fun to hear about your trip and see your new wheels! Much better than looking at fried dough. Not better tasting, though! See you next week.

  4. Would you look at that garage??? You could eat dinner off the floor. Impressive!

    p.s. The car looks good too but I'm an organizational freak--not a car person. :-)

  5. It would take me days to recover from a 3,000 mile road trip. Gets some sleep.

  6. WOW. 3,000 miles for a car!! I'm also married to a vintage car lover and have done many a thing I wouldn't normally do in the name of the perfect car! You have my sympathies!!

  11. Sweet Wheels! I can not even imagine a trip like that. Can you even feel your Butt?? Seriously, we drove to Ca from Wa overnight and I thought that trip was pushing it.

  12. Car? That's a boat. ::snort::
    My hubby and I love our road trips. Hope you had fun.

  13. These Scherben probably wouldn't have been the best road food -- lots of powdered sugar!
