Lake Rudolph Camping Trip

It was finally here … our annual family vacation to Lake Rudolph! Dad spent the entire morning acting like _____________ (1), running from room to room and packing our _______________ (2) camping gear. It only took him ______ (3) years to get it all rounded up. I could already tell this was going to be a ____________ (4) trip.

We got all of ten miles down the road before he remembered that he’d forgotten the _____________ (5). No clue what he needed that for! He muttered something about getting one at the Camp Store and onward we drove.

Two hundred miles and a ______________ (6) or two later, we finally arrived at Lake Rudolph. I couldn’t even describe how happy I was to be there. I felt like kissing a ____________ (7)   ___________ (8)!

We drove down to our Rudolph’s Christmas Cabin and began unpacking. Mom suddenly came down with a case of ____________ (9). We decided it was a side effect of the ______________ (10) she had for breakfast that morning. Boy am I glad I didn’t eat any. Her _____________ (11) turned bright purple with orange spots. Weird! She looked like a _____________ (12) monster, so I hightailed it out of there and headed to the pool. Dad stayed behind to disinfect everything she touched with_____________ (13).  Just in case it was remotely contagious.

While _______________ (14) at the pool my ___________ (15) started to burn so I put on sunscreen. That taken care of, I scanned the crowd and started to people watch. I thought I saw _______________________ (16), but it was just some dude that looked like him. #WhyDon’tIEverSeeFamousPeople

Back to people watching. Yikes! Mom flopped down beside me wearing ___________ (17) lipstick with ______________ (18) in her hair. I don’t think she was fully recovered because she began to eat her ____________ (19) and then started ____________ (20) hysterically. Must be the fever. I loaded her up in the golf car and we went back to our cabin. Dad sent her to bed to recover.

Mom was better by morning and back to her ______________ (21) self. We played mini golf, swam in the pool, and decorated for the golf car parade later that night. Our family vacation was back to normal. Thank goodness!

Rudy’s Recipe: Grilled Pasta Packets

Grilled Pasta Packets

You Need:

  • 1 lb spaghetti, cooked slightly less than al dente per package instructions (subtract 1 minute from cooking time)
  • 6 roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped coarsely
  • 4 oz fresh goat cheese
  • 1 lemon, cut into 6 wedges
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil

Make ‘Em:

Preheat grill to medium heat.

Cut one dozen 8×12″ pieces of aluminum foil.  Layer foil so that you are using 2 per packet.  In a bowl, toss together pasta, chopped tomato, basil, salt, pepper, garlic and olive oil.  Spoon one serving of pasta mixture (1 1/4 cups) into the center of each packet.  Squeeze lemon wedge over pasta before adding to packet.  Spoon a few teaspoons of goat cheese into packet.

Bring long edges of foil together, then roll to secure.  Roll edges of packet to form a closed space (do not squeeze out all air).

Reduce grill heat to low, then place packets on grill.  Cook for 10-12 minutes, shaking packets halfway through cooking.

Remove from grill and serve immediately.
