5 Intriguing Facts about Bronx Parks and Vegan Lentil Loaf
Hello My Lovelies!
I don't know about you, but his week just flew by in a jiffy! Here we are and it's Friday already!
Fridays have become important here on Travelin' Cousins with two important elements that I love to bring to you.
The first, is of course, a link to my weekly column in ThisIsTheBronx.info. This week, I have featured the parks of the Bronx in my article: The Green Bronx: 5 Intriguing Facts About Bronx Parks.
These facts include:
1. Home to the Largest New York City Park
2. Fascinating, Historic Grounds
3. Trees and Natural Species Galore
4. Bronx Park Had The First-Ever “Recycled Plastic Bottle” Pier
5. Ecologically Diverse Wildlife and Fauna

Secondly, as promised, Fridays I will feature a new vegan recipe that I have tried. This week, I made a delicious vegan "meat loaf" using lentils, nuts and veggies for my father.
Right now, we have him on a diet of all veggies, no dairy, no sugar, no salt and no wheat or grains.
You'll notice I use rolled oats to make flour and flaxseed meal with water as a binder and egg substitute.

Here's to the start of your weekend!!!
My road trip across the United States
It's Travelin' Tanya here....finally! WTH
I have come to the conclusion that I completely suck when it comes to blogging from a road trip. UGH
I left SoCal on Wednesday morning with my friend Dave (sorry I couldn't be any more creative! LOL) and we've have been clocking miles upon miles across middle America.
Climbing trees and enjoying America's Favorite pastime - Baseball.
On day one we had drove all of 1,350 miles. Stopping in Hays, Kansas.
On day two we went from Hays to Kansas City, Missouri and I finally got to Kauffman Stadium to watch the Royals play some baseball.
Yes I made it to my 26th stadium and finally went to see a game in Kansas City.
DID YOU KNOW: That I lived in Manhattan, Kansas during the filming of a movie that I was working in 1997.
Why didn't I go to see a game back then? I dunno.
But what I do know is that things got kinda screwed up when I was suppose to go catch a game in Kansas City back on my baseball road trip back in 2007...

A Good Luck Charm for a MLB Road-Trip
The second time I had thought I was going to go catch a game in Kansas City was in 2014 when the MLB All Star Game was in Kansas City...
But there was a family reunion over the same set of dates and I chose family over baseball.
So when I came up with the plan of us driving cross country instead of flying. I quickly checked the schedule and knew that we just had to go!!
It was a blast and I'm so glad that we did. The last place Kansas City Royals were playing the first place Tampa Bay Rays and it was a close game through and through, but in the end the Tampa Bay Rays won 3-1.
We then continued our road trip to St. Louis for dinner - It was too bad that I did not have the opportunity to get a good picture of the arch.
Next up was dinner at Tree House Vegetarian Restaurant.
And then back to the driving and calling it a night in Indianapolis!
Today is all about Go Ape treetop adventure park, then to Pittsburgh to hopefully catch a Pittsburgh Pirates game...
You catch my drift. Insert smile here.
That's all for night now, Over and out.
