North to Alaska

We left son Doug, Drue, Trent & Carly's home in Monument about two
hours ago.  Stopped for fuel and now can say we are headed north.
Plan another family visit at my cousin in Kalispel first. For sure
Cheyene WY tonight, probably further.

A good visit with the grandkids the past two days.  Played games
mostly, but swam today.  Dan & Doug built a stairs off their deck.
Drue is a wonderful cook and this visit was no exception.  Besides the
tasty ribs and eggplant dishes, we enjoyed homemade ice cream with
cherry crisp (made with bing cherries) and this appetizer:

Drue's Baked Brie
1/4 cup apricot jam
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
Wheel of brie about 6 inches in diameter (about 20 oz)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Slice off top of brie.  With a knife or spoon, dig a wide hole in the
cheese leaving an inch around the sides & 1/2 inch on bottom. Save
the removed cheese. Fill the hole with the jam mixture, then cover
with saved brie. Top all with pecans. Cover loosely with foil & bake
20 min at 375 or until cheese is melted. Serve with crackers or break
