A roundup of things

Posted by chrisgwinn on July 27, 2008

The big news in my world is that Zoe needs eye surgery. Ann summarized the details better than I would.  I was freaking out for much of Friday, but I think I’m good now.

Previous to that excitement, we had a great vacation trip to Bluefin Bay (up near Grand Marais).  Combine that with the trip Dad and I took to the Iola Old Car Show and you’ve got more time in the car than I’ve had in a long time.  Ann put some pictures up.  Food highlights – World’s Best Donuts in Grand Marais is surprisingly good, as is fresh Lake Trout.  We brought back some smoked Lake Superior whitefish and ate it in a salad with some fennel from the farm share.  Yum.

Zoe’s changed her mind on sichuan peppers and will now gladly snarf down dan-dan noodles from Tea House.  Which is good, since I ended up with some leftovers from the long-delayed four51 holiday party.
