I am moving northern mexico (as we like to call corpus christi, tx) to chicago, il at the end of july/early august. My best friend is making the trek along with me and we are both amateur foodies. We need some good recommendations for the 22 hour drive up. We are looking at not straying to much from the path because I want to get her up to Chicago to have enough time to show her the city i love. However she does get cranky when her blood sugar gets low :) any suggestions???? the route will take us from austin to dalles (i-35) then entering oklahoma we will be on us-75/69 up until missouri then on i-44 towards st. louis and from st. louis on is i-55.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
