its monday and you know it means my weekly food blog , right? well kinda.
although i like the idea of blogging about food once a week, i desided i am going back to the once a month food blog. just like old times 🙂
now this doesnt mean that im done with food because THERE IS NO CHANGE IN HELL THAT IS HAPPENING. i love food and i love sharing it with you. i just have a lot of other blog posts i want to focus on so therefore, the foodie posts are back to once a month.
with that being said…
here is where i ate/drank this past week:
i have always loved beef jerky, like an embarrassing amount. like im kind of embarrassed to even say that im embarrassed. but i guess what should i be embarrassed when something is super tasty and locally made? last week, i won a contest on instagram and with that contest, i won three of their flavors they have. i got their honey bbq, spicy inferno and smoked hickory. lets just say that i have already order and eaten a lot of beef jerky within the last couple of days. their prices are fair, the jerky is made locally and the owners of the company are so nice and flexible with ordering. like i said, i ordered from them because it was just THAT good. i ended up ordering their spicy inferno because i liked the flavor and the heat. now its not overly spicy but spicy enough. i also enjoy this type of jerky because its not the chewy, hard stuff you get from the story. milwaukee jerky makes sure their jerky is soft and tender while leaving you wanting to eat the whole bag. if you’re interested in buying their product, the best way to reach them is on their facebook.
yes i have been here so many times, and im pretty sure i get the same pizza over and over agian. and i get their chips over and over too. but hey! like i said last week, if something is good, why change it up? (im kidding). when you go there, its a must to get their house chips because it comes with nacho cheese and jalapenos. again, i love heat so the jalapenos are a great touch. this time around, we got their mke brewing co, great lakes distillery and the var gallery pizza. each pizza is one of a kind but yet all so good.
vines and rushes winery:
this past weekend, a group of my blogger friends and i headed up to ripon, wi for blogger collab day. our last stop of the day was at vines and rushes. i literally had no idea that there was even a winery “up north” but there is and its so pretty! now i also didnt realize that a winery makes pizzas too. and the pizza isnt just a frozen pizza, its wood brick oven pizza and its to die for! we all shared a few of their margarita pizzas and wine of course! we did do a tasting of their different wines and my favorite was their marquette rose. it was on the sweeter side but very refreshing ( i know nothing about wine lol).
we wanted to go somewhere for drinks before dinner and because were at the art museum, i suggested harbor house. we got their cranbery, orange manhattan and of course, i was hungry and wanted to try their garlic parmesan fires and literally couldve had two serving because they were that good! the drink was good too 🙂
now this is a place that i used to really enjoy and i feel like the past couple of times that ive been here, i wasnt impressed what i had. this time around i got their lobster roll because i had been craving one and it was not good. the maine lobster roll did have a lemon parmesan peppercorn aioli and that was what i think wasnt good about it. i love all of the aspects of that aioli but dang! it was not good. and i was upset that this wasnt what i wanted because i had been craving a lobster roll for the longest time!
i kinda feel like this is goodbye but its not?
its totally not, well ill see everyone next month for my monthly food blog. thank you for sticking around all these weeks while i tested the foodie water.
