Even I can offer a good bargain during these soon to be over but not soon enough tough economic times. As of late, dh and I have been again to La Eskina where I had a deliciousio Tortas, which is a Mexican sandwich on a squarish bun that has been purposely burnt, kinda of like the grill marks on the inside of bread sandwiches that people are so fond of these days. The tortas have the grill marks on the crusted part of the bun. It’s more for the eye than the tastebuds. Charcoal is pretty tasteless really, once you get over the black pebbly part of it, it’s not all that. But the chicken, avocado, tomato, lettuce and onion sandwich I requested was so good and so big, I didn’t eat for a day and a half after that. It was about 5 dollars and worth every penny of it. The folks over there don’t skimp on any ingredient and I like that about them. Dh had his usual already. Once he likes something that’s all he’ll order for decades. How could I girl like me be married to such a stick in the mud, I just don’t know. Right now, he is flying back an airplane from the OshKosh Air Show that got left there by someone who had to leave early. So maybe he’s not that much of a stick in the mud. Really, he and my puppy are the loves of my life and they alternate and jockey for position number one constantly. No, I’m kidding. Anyway….
We went over to Mill Street Tavern yesterday and also visited the nearby newly built up Cannon Falls Waterfalls and wan pond that enhance the new hiking and biking path. We noticed the Cannon Falls bike and boat rental shop and looked at their website when we got back. Wow, you can rent a bicycle built for two there, too. (Notice how I wove a reference to the title into this blog?) We also delighted at the sight of a lovely family of swans with a few teenager swanlets or whatever they are called these days, and two lovely adult heart halves swans behaving in particularly swannish manner. Picture perfect, except we didn’t have our camera, so we go back next week.

I am not blogging Mill Street Tavern because I did not enjoy the leathery wild caught salmon and so on sandwich I forced down as everything else was very good including dh’s chicken and bacon wrap.
Thanks for reading my blog and allowing for my silliness. It’s just that kind of day for me.
