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.
