Spectacular Dantes View

It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day. There was a Bee Hazard caution sign on the road but we didn't even get the change to see any. Maybe it's because we

Strawberries and Seaweed Snack

I had a lot of strawberries that were a little bit sour and seaweed snacks that were a little bit salty. I pair them together and they taste really good, they complement each other.
I thought I was crazy doing that, but when I search online, I found out that I wasn't the only one who did pair them together. In fact, seaweed snacks are becoming more and more popular here in the US. To find out more about it +Alison Spiegel wrote an article about How Seaweed Became a Mainstream Snack in American. 
Roasted Seaweed Snack
Anyway, both strawberries and seaweed snack were bought from Costco. And talking about +Costco, they sell in bulk. So I had so much strawberries that my family and I could eat in a day or two. So here is what I did to the rest. I place some paper towel at the bottom of a container, arrange the strawberries in single layer, cover tight the container and put them in the fridge. The strawberries will stay fresh for a week. I'll only wash them just before I eat them, otherwise they'll turn bad quick.  

The roasted seasoned seaweed snack is non-GMO which is great! It's Kirkland brand imported from Korea by +Costco Wholesale Corp. in Seattle, Washington. A case has 10 packages and only $7.99. It's a cheap snack to have in the kitchen. It is addictive, if I start eating it, it's hard to stop. That is why I had to wait for my husband before opening one so I won't be eating the whole package by myself.  The only thing I don't like about this is the sodium content 50 mg per serving. I package is 5 servings, so that's about 250mg of sodium, 100 calories, 7.5g fat, 5g total carbohydrate, and 5g protein per package. The ingredients are Seaweed, Non-GMO expleller pressed canola oil, sunflower oil, Non-GMO sesame oil, sea salt. It's a great little snack or even added to a meal.
