Interesting about the longest road in the USA......
U.S. Route 20 or U.S. Highway 20 (US 20) is an east–west United States highway that stretches from the Pacific Northwest all the way to New England. The "0" in its route number indicates that US 20 is a coast-to-coast route and major route. Spanning 3,365 miles, it is the longest road in the United States, and the route is roughly parallel to that of the newer Interstate 90 (I-90), which is in turn the longest Interstate Highway in the U.S. There is a discontinuity in the official designation of US 20 through Yellowstone National Park, with unnumbered roads used to traverse the park.
US 20 and US 30 break the general U.S. Route numbering rules in Oregon, since US 30 actually starts north of US 20 in Astoria, and runs parallel to the north throughout the state (the Columbia River and Interstate 84). The two run concurrently and continue in the correct positioning near Caldwell, Idaho. This is because US 20 was not a planned coast-to-coast route while US 30 was. US 20 originally ended at the eastern entrance of Yellowstone Park; it was extended in 1940.
The highway's eastern terminus is in Boston, Massachusetts, at Kenmore Square, where it meets Route 2. Its western terminus is in Newport, Oregon, at an intersection with US 101, within a mile of the Pacific Ocean.

From the Slow Roasted Italian... These cookies are soft and chewy. They are ready to bake before the oven is even preheated. Just stir, scoop, and bake.
3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup honey roasted peanut butter (I used Skippy Natural)
1 cup granulated sugar (plus extra)
1 large egg
Mix ingredients in medium bowl until well combined. Use and electric mixer, stand mixer, or a wooden spoon.
Using a 1 tablespoon scooper, drop onto baking sheet. Dip fork into extra sugar and press down. Repeat until all cookies are pressed.
Bake 10-12 minutes (until barely golden brown around the edges)
and allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
Serve and enjoy.
