Fun In Minnesota
It's been fun having Laurie visiting this week as we've done some things that might otherwise have been put off, like visiting Como to see the new baby Giraffe, and all the changes that have been made to the zoo. We've also enjoyed some wonderful meals - like Ron & me, Laurie enjoys eating at interesting places. We've hit Tavern On Grand for the wonderful walleye, Caribe for the terrific Caribbean food, and had dinner at Sea Salt in Minnehaha Park - they have the BEST Catfish, but I have to admit that Laurie's Oysters were almost as good. Laurie is cooking tonight, using her vegan cookbook that appears to have a lot of wonderful recipes. I want to learn how to use more healthy greens and grains when I cook, things like collard greens and quinoa, so plan to buy a copy for myself.
If you are local and have never been to a dog show, this is the weekend for you! Friday through Sunday at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Lake Elmo. Friday is specialty shows with about 20 breeds having single breed shows. Saturday & Sunday are all breed shows and you can see just about anything! Dal judging is 4:00 PM Friday and 8:00 AM Saturday and Sunday. See you there!
