Wonderful! Thx @johnbishop !!
Smile for the day –
Walking with a 4 year old yesterday, he noted the 8" of snow from 2 weeks ago was all gone. I asked "Where did the snow go?" He said "I don't know." Me "Maybe the sun melted it?" He: "Nope. The slush ate it." Me "Then what happened?" His reply "It got to water and ran down the drain." He's figuring nature out in his own way.
By the way, he was a woodpecker on our walk yesterday – complete with pecking at branches looking for insects, and making drilling sounds. Last week he was a puppy.
@sueinmn, What a fun post and share! Thank you!!
This was getting pretty far off the topic of walking, so I replied here, under diversions – with the particulars.
Koshars' Sausage Kitchen in Gilbert is the place – our favorite blood sausage (husband and one daughter), potato sausage (other daughter and me) hot Italian jerky (son-in-law), porketta roasts (all of us) and homemade hard dry salami. The recipes used are traditional to the Slovenes and very similar to what my father-in-law and his cousin made for us. They also have good smoked pork chops, but my husband does our own, and really good brats, but we got our favorites from the Farmers' Market this summer and stocked up well. And they don't put enough garlic in the Polish sausage, so I get those from my "hometown" sausage maker here in Minneapolis – guys I grew up with, now training the 4th generation.
A favorite winter meal at our house is baked sausage, boiled potatoes and sour cucumbers with onions – pretty typical old-country comfort food.
We also stopped at Cane Lake Candy in Virginia for the dark chocolate "Hot air" candy and took a drive through my husband's hometown. Normally we would have stopped at a local bar there to meet with his cousins or classmates, but… And we would have hit one of the L&M Supply stores, but not this time either.
We tried to finish the day with a drive through the Bentleyville lights, but the line was over a mile long at 4:40, with bumper-to-bumper traffic heading in from 35 and from Superior – and Tuesday is supposed to be the "least busy". So we had curbside takeout from Pizza Luce & headed home.
All in all a great 'venture as our 4 yo grandson would say. We were sorry we couldn't have him with us.
Thanks, sounds like the trip was well worth it. My Grandma used to make blood sausage when I was a child as well. I never found a taste pallet for it, however some of your other buys sound great. Thanks for the Dark Chocolate candy idea as well.
What a trip! I'm all for a trip especially if the destination involves food. Looks like you're all stocked up for the winter!
Maybe worth a giggle: https://images.hu-production.be/post/post_13711aec631d4936b5fde5aaf6e42a77_637439743631660044.jpg
Being a Nerd myself I just had to share this YouTube video – Geek or Nerd?
