Door County: Other food stops

Oilerie As usual, one of my favorite stops in Door County even though they opened one in Brookfield.  I picked up some Spicy Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil and some Fig Balsamic.  I also grabbed some of that excellent Curt’s queso dip and chips and a pack of mixed lentils.   I’ll still lodge my only […]

Wild Tomato Pizza, Fish Creek Wisconsin

One Local Summer Week 8: Smoked Lamb Brats

There is nothing more Wisconsin than bratwurst (ok well maybe cheese) so for this week’s One Local Summer challenge I decided I would make bratwurst.  I am a huge fan of the Big Three Wisconsin brartwurst makers (Johnsonville, Usinger’s, and Klement’s) but I picked up some incredible smoked lamb brats from Greek Acres Farms at the Waukesha Farmers’ Market […]

Unless you are living under a rock, you know that Summerfest starts today. Since everyone else does it, here are my picks for music and food. MUSIC Rancid, 8:00pm, Thursday, June 25 Harley Stage– I cannot believe that Rancid is opening for Rise Against.  I mean Rancid hasn’t released a great album since 1997’s “Life Won’t Wait,” […]

The festival featured breweries and brewers from across Wisconsin and […]

One Local Summer Week 2: Poached Eggs, Canadian Bacon, Spinach and SarVecchio Parmesean

So Sunday morning while working in the yard I made a mental note that I absolutely had to get my One Local Summer blog post up and e-mailed to the regional coordinator in time for inclusion in this week’s mass posting after missing the deadline last week.  Then the day gets hectic and next thing […]
