Are You Surprised?

In a recent post, I raved (perhaps too much) about the bacon at my favorite restaurant,  Wise Acre Eatery ("Wise Acres"). After reading about my love for this establishment once before, I imagine that you are not all that shocked that I have since been back. While it is first on my list for brunch, it is also very close to first on my list for lunch, or any other time I wish to be consuming and enjoying delicious food. This particular instance was an impromptu lunch date with my mom.

We shared a bowl of the chowder of the day, which was pork and garlic. Can we just talk about the chowder selections for a minute? Order the chowder! The flavor rotates, but consistently contains delicious pork and showcases simple and delicious flavors.

We also both ordered the brie and bacon burger...what a perfect combination. Melty brie, the freshness of basil, a juicy beef patty, and of course- a thick and crispy piece of bacon. Yummmm. The burger was served with crunchy fries, and housemade ketchup and pickles.

For the love of all things bacon, go order this burger. 

Happy local dining,

Saturday Simple Happinesses

What a beautiful Saturday morning this is turning out to be. Amazing what a little sunshine and starting the day off with pancakes can do :) On the docket today around our house is  a trip to the farmer's market, meandering around Lake Harriet, playing a few rounds of fetch with Bales, and hopefully grilling up some farmer's market deliciousness later tonight. 

1. Fresh made iced tea for Arnie Palmer's all week. 

2. Sourdough bread rising. 

3. Trying the new fish and chips at the Twins game last night.

4. Finishing the game with my favorite, a root beer float. 

Happy weekend!
