Cooped up all winter? Well, we haven't been. We'll enter our cooped-up phase right around June. But while some people are trapped indoors because the snow drifts are too high to navigate, we have a tendency, if we're not careful, to become bogged down in "around the house" stuff. Because there's always something to do in a house regardless of how many inches of snow are (or aren't) blanketing the ground.
Even for us, and particularly for those with cabin fever, make time to celebrate spring by getting out and doing. In our case, we got a fancy notion in our head to eat pie!
About 55 miles to the north, up I-17 headed to Sedona, is a somewhat famous pie place called the Rock Springs Cafe. I say famous to the extent anyone saw the shop featured on TLC's Best Food Ever a few years ago. Of course, any time someplace is called the best of anything, it's worth a try. I won't go so far as to say the pies are the best of all pies. Honestly, I probably make a better pie...and my mom absolutely baked a better pie. It was a fun afternoon out, though, at a place with some western history: a former stage coach stop for the Black Canyon Stagecoach and guests the likes of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday.
Spring calls for adventuring and trying new things, even if they turn out to be less than the best ever! Get out, adventure, make some family memories, and eat pie!!
With love from The Valley of the Sun.
