After last week's festival, we visited a few of our favorite places. We were surrounded by fields of sunflowers. (click to enlarge) You can pick your own in many of these fields.
We drove by Lake Erie. That's it out there.....I'm still taking pics while I drive.
We stopped at the altar of sacred sausage....Raddell's.
They sell what might be the world's best smoked sausage! Sorry no pics....we were stuffing sausage...in our mouths!
Next we drove to The West Side Market.
The W's only wish!
This is the place to buy weird meat parts that I love to cook with.
Look at the size of the steaks in the middle.
They don't just sell meat. They sell baked goods too.
Sometimes they mix meat with their baking. These apple fritters are maple/bacon.
What would you buy?
One booth sells British food. This is where I was inspired to learn how to make traditional British favorites.
We stopped at a new place suggested by my DIL. This is a Salvadorian pupuseria restaurant with incredible food. We ate papusas, fried yucca and drank warm tomato soup out of a cup. It wasn't until later that we found out that it was salsa. Oh well, what can I say....we are the worst kind of foodies! I will be making this food very soon.
We made one last stop before heading home and it was my daughter's favorite bakery. We bought a huge chocolate chip Rice Krispy bar.
A dozen macarons.
Fruity Pebble bars anyone?
Or maybe a Twix bar?
We came home with this Halloween cake topped with a ghost Choir. It was a helluva fun trip!
