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
|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.
