Like I mentioned, we went to the fair this week. My dad, sister, and I have been going to the fair together ever since I can remember. Since it was just the three of us this year, it was all about traditions. Making sure we covered each one of them even if they were new traditions. :) Met at the red cardinal, ate at the smorgous board, saw the baby chicks, pet the rabbits, walked through ODNR, saw the baby cows, got ice cream and ate it in the coliseum while 'betting' on horses, and wandered around looking at all of the animals.
Yay! It's strawberry time again. Everbearing strawberries are ripening right now and they are sooo good! We also made a stop at B Spot where they specialize in burgers, brats, beer, and bourbon. Pretty good hamburger and delicious campfire milkshake with toasted marshmallows on top.
And of course Dublin Irish Festival was this weekend. After a few Guinness, some Irish nachos )chops with beer cheese) from Claddagh, and perusing the vendors we learned how to make linen from flax straw, saw how to play some traditional 'track and field' type games and listened to a lot of bagpipes.
Here is the plan for this week! What are you planning on making?
shrimp po boys with grilled potatoes
