Two Word Tuesday? Maybe?

Every blog seems to have a theme day. The most popular floating around is the what I ate wednesday. I eat too fast to think about taking a picture of my meals, so that's out of the question. But... I've decided to try some out. Today we're doing Two Word Tuesday. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this, but I'll try! (PS - give me feedback.)

1. Turtle Popcorn

I went to a lame chocolate fest, but this was the winner of it all! Think of the best caramel corn, mixed with walnuts and topped with the best chocolate ever!

2. Dang! Delicious!
Butterscotch root beer? Taste like those little orange butterscotch hard candies. Glad I tried it though.

3. Visiting Mars
Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha, WI. It's the place to get all things Wisconsin (cheese, sausage, beer, wine, cow knick-knacks). I go there once a year with the family. (picture source)

4. Hot Dog
Monday night we did a hot dog bar at my house, lots of different dogs (beef, chicken, vegetarian; also some German sausages and different flavored chicken sausages), lots of different toppings. This went along amazingly. I'm totally doing the dog bar again for my going away party in August!

Toppings like raw tomatoes, sauerkraut, carmalized onions with mustard and beer (top picture) and braised fennel with lots of dark beer and apple cider (bottom picture).

5. Trader Joe's
If TJ was an actual person, I would be married by now! These were the two ingredients in my vinaigrette for my fresh green beans to go with the hot dog bar.

6. Floatable Dessert
Good root beer + (vanilla rum for the adults) + vanilla ice cream (regular and non-dairy) = Such a great dessert after hot dogs!

I failed at the two word part, but if it's in the photo comment, it doesn't count, right? I'm glad we all agree on this!

What was the highlight of your long weekend?
Mars Cheese Castle! It made up for the crappy chocolate fest and rain. So much deliciousness and a great place to people watch. Even though I don't like cheese and can't really have it, there is just so much to pick from, mostly Wisconsin stuff, but some from all over the world.

What's your favorite summer food? 
Bratwursts! There is no way to beet that. Most grilled sausages will get me though. Maybe it's because I can make a whole lot of dirty jokes about them, or maybe it's because they taste delicious.

  1. That butterscotch root beer sounds like it would be good on a float! Man, I miss root beer floats - or black cows as we used to call them up North.
    Hmm summer food. Maybe grilled cheese and tomato soup? But I haven't had that in a really long time. But it sounds summery. :-)
