This weekend we had a long-awaited visit to Appleton to see Brenton’s family. I haven’t been up there since February to make homemade pasta, so it was nice to catch up, have a fish fry and take a field trip to Pigeon Lake for a relative’s 80th b-day party.
One of Brenton’s favorite parts were the drinks. Unusually good bloody mary’s for $4 a piece. Definitely a nice change of pace from Milwaukee’s drink prices.
That night we had an awesome dinner at the Gospo’s. Brenton’s dad made the dough for flatbread from the book “Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in 5 Minutes a Day.”
I finished it off with some Asiago cheese and a Zahar spice blend from Penzy’s. Seriously amazing. Our dinner consisted of the bread, homemade crab cakes, shrimp and some fried cheese and marinara sauce. (not shown: about 10 more pieces of flatbread) :)
Question: How was your weekend? Did you do anything exciting?
