Either your camera suddenly developed water spots for only one photo, or MFL & Co. are haunted...I see at least 13 orbs in that pic.

    It wouldn't be a RoadFood Eat & Greet without a surprise stop.  Out proximity to Gilles Frozen Custard Stand made it an obvious last stop of the day.

     
    Spiral bacon?

     
    Those Things?

     
    Those things!!!

     
    I hope Buddy Roadhouse enjoyed those quarts of frozen custard his family bought for him.  Mmmmmmmmmmmm, Smores!!!

     
    That's a wrap.

      "Pop"?!

      I grew up West of the Subcontinental Divide.
      Sheriff Joe will be the first to tell you that ignorance of our laws is no excuse.
      "Pop" is someone you ask to borrow the family car.
       
      What a fun time.
      My 87 year old mom (yes, 87!!!) loved it and the company.

        Yeah, that custard was fant--wait, what?  Custard?  Quarts? Family?
         
        Hey, it was enough that you all had a good time while I was slaving away at work.  Plus, those pastries from LaReve did make it home and they were a fine pre-lunch treat.
         
        Nice pix.  Glad you all enjoyed yourselves.  See you at Ilija's!  Really--31 people?

          Nope.  32 is the latest count for the 12th of December.
           
          Did the blood sausage make it to Buddy?

            "My 87 year old mom (yes, 87!!!)" 
            You mean that wasn't your younger sister?

            More likely it was camera flash from the paparazzi.

              Didn't nuthin' make it to BuddyRoadhouse except those two pastries from LaReve!
               
              And if you thought you were going to scare me with "blood sausage", I got bad news for you buckaroo--we ate that stuff every freakin' morning for two weeks at various B&Bs up and down the west coast of Ireland.  Also, white sausages which were similar to miniature haggis.  Actually not bad, not bad at all.

                BR - No thought of scaring you with the sausage, I was pretty sure that you ain't afraid of no wurst.  I couldn't pass it up at $1 apiece.

                  The wood-fired pizza oven at Piccola.


                   
                  You sure this isn't a photo of a Pizza Hut kitchen?
                   
                  I would've loved to have participated but unfortunately circumstances dictated otherwise.  I'm definitely going to try to work in a visit to Pizzeria Piccola after a ballgame next summer.

                    Everything looks awesome, and it looked like evyone had a great time.
                    So sorry we (I) couldn't make it.
                    We will look forward to being 2/32 of the crown at Ilija's

                      Blutwurst
                      Well first Jim, it was worth every penny you paid for it.
                      Like Buddy, I've had black puddin' at many an Irish breakfast.
                      I've also sampled many variations of Czarnina, the Polish duck's blood soup.
                      I also know why kids don't beg their mom for bloodwurst sandwiches for their school lunch and why Campbells doesn't sell blood soup.
                      It's a texture mouth feel  thing. That and the extreme riichness of the product, coupled with not having grown up with it as a kid. The Usingers Thueringer blood summer also has somewhat unusual, at least to me, seasonings.
                      I'm eating and I'll finish it but I've got my sandwichs slathered with pickled hot peppers to cut that richness.
                      Thanks Jim. I'm going to miss your wicked sense of humor.
                      (I'm not a suelze or headcheese fancier either; texture again)

                          I wish I could've joined you all on the Milwaukee tour, but was occupied in that large metropolis to the south. However, yesterday I made it to Piccolo for dinner and enjoyed their pizza with chicken sausage, shaved celery, gorgonzola, provolone, and pine nuts. Such delicious, fresh flavors: thanks for the recommendation.  And afterwards I couldn't resist--I walked over to Le Reve for a few macarons. No individual pumpkin macarons were available, but I enjoyed one each of pistachio, peanut, and raspberry.

                            Well, apparently there was some kind of mis-communication, which I am still not clear on, and yes, JRPfeff did indeed send down a hunk of Blood Sausage which has magically made its way into my home this Sunday morning during a brief visit from abe_froeman and Mr. Maki.
                             
                            So, a big thank you to JRP and the Pie Diva for their thoughtful gift.  I'll get around to digging into it ASAP.
                             
                            Thanks again,

                              I didn't know we had the blood sausage; Mr. Maki didn't know that I didn't know and he put the sausage away last weekend.  I went into the fridge drawer last night to make a summer sausage sandwich and found the blood sausage.

                                      I just tried to drive to work at 9p.m, almost ended up in the ditch twice, and literally couldnt see the road.Turned around and called in-they were prepared for that possibility. It is BAD out there, folks.

                                          We closed my business for the first time ever!  Been over there twice, 9 foot drifts, getting bobcats and an end loader in this afternoon.  While roads were pretty good at 6am, they have re-drifted and are now virtually impassable except in 4-wheel drive.

                                            The local news interviewed a woman on the street from Siberia, and she said no storm she saw there was as bad as this.

                                              It was brutal today, only 34 on the way to work.  Darn glad I didn't miss my flight yesterday.

                                                        I've lived out here for 11 years now and haven't seen any Scorpions but know people who have had them. The Pest Control people usually spray for them during their monthly visits. Most areas that have them are the newer subdivisions as the housing expands outward and the soil gets stirred up.
