Day 32 - Indianapolis, Indiana
Indianapolis is known as the "Crossroads of America". More interstate highways traverse the city and state of Indiana than any other in the United States. It's easy to drive here! Just get in your car and keep going. The land is flat and you're surrounded by cornfields as you zoom towards the city of racecar driving. On the way, you can pretend you're a race car driver - just stay within the speed limits!
I told Ziggy that Indiana was the 19th state in the USA and it became a state on December 11, 1816. Ziggy reached in her bag and got her Indiana hat.
We met up with subscribers Mary, Peg, Deanne and Maria and they took us to the Indy 500. I had been there before but not with Ziggy. As soon as we got to the middle we turned and Ziggy wasn't there anymore. Where was she?
Mary said, "I hope she's alright." Peg said, "That Ziggy should likes to roam."
Deann said, "I think I hear one of the cars."
Maria said, "Look!" And we all watched this car as it sped down the track.
Oh, my God. It's Ziggy. I made a waving jesture as she sped past us the first time and made a jesture as to say, let's eat the second time around the track!
She pulled over and they all suggested we go get some Indiana sour cream dill bread. Sounded good to us.
Here's something completely different if you haven't had it before. Make a sandwich with this dill bread and you'll be pleasantly surprised. Here's the recipe.
Indiana Sour Cream-Dill Bread
Makes 1 loaf (16 slices)
3 cups Original Bisquick
1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (5 ounces)
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon dried dill weed
3/4 teaspoon ground mustard
Heat oven to 350F. Generously grease loaf pan, 9x5x3 inches.
Stir together all ingredients just until moistened. Pour into pan.
Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; loosen from sides of pan. Remove from pan and cool completely.
They took us right to the airport and we said our goodbyes. We're in Baton Rouge, Louisiana tomorrow and it looks like more shrimp for me and Ziggy.
