I flew home to Wisconsin from Arizona last night, arriving after midnight. Past experience has shown that I am completely worthless the next day, so we try to plan some activity. This was especially true this morning after my flight attendant gave me a bucket of Scotch for my after dinner drink.
The plan today was to drive North of Milwaukee to buy cheese at the Cedar Valley Cheese Store
and brats at Miesfeld's Meat Market. Cedar Valley is our new favorite for string cheese after Ann & Bob Peeples told us about the place. The string cheese is all natural & unpasteurized, it has a chewy & stringy texture and is very flavorful. It is nothing like the string cheese sold pre-wrapped in vacuum sealed plastic that is so common. Stop one was uneventful, we ended up with a load of cheese and no photos. This was supposed be a shopping trip, not a Roadfood roadtrip.
After buying our cheese, we decided to find a diner for lunch. Not far up Highway 57 was Midway Eat.
With a sign like that, we had to stop. The restaurant structure certainly had the right feel.
Upon entering, we were told to seat ourselves. We chose a booth - bad mistake, possibly the most uncomfortable booth ever. The menu was attractive with several inviting choices.
After reading the review of the Broasted Chicken at the Murdo Drive-In
yesterday, I knew Bobbi would be ordering the Broasted Chicken here.
I had a hankering for a burger, and after asking our waitress about the Home Style Hamburger decided that was for me (Not being experienced Roadfooders from the Steel City, we both passed on the Shrimp Basket).
I didn't notice the "Midway Special" until after ordering. I saw one delivered to another patron and it looked excellent. I didn't have the nerve to drop over to photograph the Hot Beef on Bread.
I'm breaking up this report and posting this before I lose my work. Much more to come.
