For some years now, I have both collected and shared some mouth watering reading fare. Yes, menus.
Read a menu when you are sad, read a menu when you are mad, betcha sweet dollar you will not holler
because your brain will be so glad. lol!

Medici’s on 57th is a place I went to with various friends and my husband so many times I cannot count.
The food is so good, the service just right. Today, just go to the site, download the three menus and then
sleep well tonight. Alright? Alright.

Bluff View Bar and Grille

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

In Wabasha, we are so lucky to have new owners, Greg and June, who have made a super place to dine and enjoy one of the prettiest views in the area. We especially enjoyed our lunch today as Greg took a moment out of his busy time to let us know where my salmon was from, South America, and how he loved to prepare food for friends and anyone who appreciates the time and effort, I’d say the artistry, in serving a great dish of food. For me, this was one for the books, because, although it was a simple salad with salmon on top, the ingredients were very fresh, very colorful,
and full of flavor. A lovely balsamic vinegar dressing was my good choice and one that I enjoyed so much, I ate the entire cupful, which is something I rarely do.

Greg was proud of his cooking and of Chef Jeremy’s sparkling clean kitchen. Greg said, I don’t have to tell him what to do, he just keeps it that way on his own to the point where the county inspector commented that their kitchen was one of the best he’s seen.

My husband loves the beef dishes and orders them all the time. He’s the fussy one between us two and if he doesn’t like something, we don’t go back. We’ve enjoyed the Bluff a few dozen times in the last year, and highly recommend it to everyone now that Jeremy is here.

What’s New in Wabasha

Had another great day at the Wabasha Farmer’s Market yesterday by the hospital. Abigail sold us the bread she promised, we took it home and had some this morning as toast and we put some avocado on it. Man, that was good. It’s a very dense but doesn’t go down like a heavy rock. It’s dense, but light and mighty tasty. Just really good ingredients. For four bucks a loaf, I think I can make several meals with it as a base. Good work, Abigail!

Later, we tried baking French toast with Abigail’s bread. It was awesome. We cut 5 pieces of 3/4 inch thick slices into quarters and soaked them in 5 eggs with vanilla, milk and cinnamon. Then placed all 20 pieces into two buttered glass pans, put them in the oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees F. SO good with real maple syrup or honey.

Sara George got us some of the MOST wonderful tasting strawberries we ever had. We love strawberries and these were so worth the money. Get there early, they might be gone soon.

Another lady had radishes, but we didn’t get there early enough. Maybe next time!

Thanks so much to the wonderful farmers who weed and wait for us to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Thank you so much for your support. I know they really appreciate it.

Just ran across one of the nicest beaded jewelry artists I have seen. Please check them out on Facebook.
They are just getting underway so get there quick because I think they will sell out soon, that’s how nice
their pieces are to my eye.
