Pre-Thanksgiving Feast

Italian-themed dinner seemed perfect as a pre-Thanksgiving feast at the F's, and Jeffrey and I competed with each other in garlic break making abilities. Jeffrey's mozzarella topped garlic bread beat my blue cheese bread, but I think the real winner was G with the delicious tiramisu! However, M's specially saved for this occasion French wine I think beat all of our goodies!

Pumpkin Pie and good company

Thanksgiving finally is here and I am enjoying stories and laughs at the table while eating delicious pies after the dinner. Afterward, Gomer kept me company...

The Giant

My trip to Bemidji also resulted in meeting the Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox. Apparently, the legend originated from Quebecois loggers fighting the British soldiers. Amongst the loggers was Paul Bonjean, who turned out to be quite the fighter! Later on the story was modified for advertising purposes.

Minnesota Nice

I was visiting Bemidji, MN last week, and encouraged by a friend who is familiar with the area, we had lunch at a little cafe named Minnesota Nice. She kept explaining the wonderful meals they offer, but I was sold on the name right away! I googled the term, and Wikipedia informs us that "Minnesota nice is a stereotypical behavior of long-time Minnesota residents as being hospitable, curteous and well-mannered." I just had to visit the cafe! The potato pancakes were delicious and my friend's E.'s blueberry pancakes were so tastey I ate half of it, too!
