Weekly Menu 11/29 - 12/3

Hope everyone had a safe & happy holiday weekend here in the States. Matt & I are back from a trip to visit his family in Michigan. We had a fabulous turkey roasted with fresh sage leaves on top.
The turkey
Everyone loved eating the crispy sage "chips" off the turkey before it was carved. Since they were so popular my mother-in-law says next year she'll add a bunch more.
Bell's Bell's Eccentric Cafe
Friday we headed over to Bell's Eccentric Cafe to try some of the beers that are only available at their Kalamazoo brewery (Ok, the main brewery is in Comstock but the micro-brews are still made in house in Kalamazoo). Bell's beer is super popular here in Minneapolis so it was fun to go visit their home base.
Bell's Trasting Bell's Wild Raspberry
Matt had a full Michigan tasting while I had a Wild Raspberry, 3/4 Wild One & 1/4 Raspberry Ale. Oh, I wish that Raspberry Ale was available here in Minnesota.

On to Menu Planning Monday...

Wild Rice, Corn & Turkey Hot Dish

Sausage & Bean Soup

Our Iron Foodie Entry - You'll have to wait until Friday to see one.

One night we'll head over to try the new place in town Pizzeria Lola.

Glad you had a good weekend. The sausage and bean soip sounds perfect for the weather we are having at the moment. Snow, snow and more snow...

LOVE Bells!! Its very popular in the Chicago area as well. I was enjoying a little too much of it the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

Those big sage leaves are gorgeous on that turkey. Those beers sound great and I love that creative flight. Dan usually goes for those when they are available.
