Another weekend is upon us. Got big plans? There seems to be a teeny tiny chance we'll actually get some rain - Grant will be happy if that happens. Watering the gardens is becoming a daily chore. If you're heading to the Iowa Craft Beer Festival, have a great time. We can't make it ourselves, family reunion weekend! But on to the Food Tour...
Loved this recap of A Rare Affair by FoodIowa. Looks like there was a fabulous showcase of sustainably produced meats by several top local chefs. If you were there, tell us - what was your favorite taste of the day?
After Slaking Fool's post on doughnuts last week, I just knew he'd post something else from that trip to Ankeny. This time he stopped in at one of our favorite places - Leaning Tower of Pizza! Awesome photos show how great their pizza is - and that we haven't been there in way too long.
I think it's cool to see an 'out-of-town' perspective on central Iowa restaurants. Will has been writing restaurant reviews for several years on his Road Tips blog and I enjoyed his take on Hickory Park Restaurant Co. in Ames.
Strawberries are looking good about now, but why limit yourself to the classic strawberry pie or strawberry shortcake? I'm thinking a little something like strawberry liqueur would be pretty tasty! Check out this DIY recipe from Serious Eats. Now where's that bottle of sparkling wine?
Happy Friday - and for all the dads out there - enjoy your day on Sunday!
