    I would love to do a food tour of the USA. I am a huge foodie trapped in midwestern Canada. I love the food and travel list, I would love to so all those things too.
    Peanuts in Pepsi?! Tell me more. Is this really a thing?!

    Winery tours are amazing. If you are up for a trip and interested in a really cool experience, you should head to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada at the end of January for the Ice Wine Festival! You get tickets to visit a bunch of different wineries, each one pairs their tasting with different foods… it’s a great time! We try to head up every year.

    Great list! You could knock off the cheesemaking thing quickly. I used a kit to easily make mozzarella and Ricotta with unpasteurized milk from Whole Foods. The warm mozzarella right out of the pot will be one of the best things you’ve ever eaten.

    As for the Philly Cheesesteaks, my husband, who grew up there, likes the ones from Tony Luke’s the best.

    Have fun checking all of these off!

      Thank you! I will definitely look into the cheese kit. Also, I love suggestions from someone who knows a town well and really appreciate the restaurant idea. I just looked at the menu and wish I could go there now!
