Weekend Wanderings Episode 2


Another month has gone by and it’s time for Episode 2.

We haven’t really gone a lot of places this past month. We are in the process of re-doing our kitchen pantry and it’s sucking up the weekends.

Weekend Wanderings Epsiode 1

This last week hubs took a few days off so we headed up north to Duluth. It is about three hours from our home.

We were excited to spend some time exploring, hitting our favorite restaurant and maybe a hike or two.

Well…it snowed and rained for two days then turned to beautiful sunshine as we were packing up to come home. We just had to laugh because this is not the first time that the weather has not been our friend.

We caught a movie (My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2…save your $…just my opinion), played a lot of Skip-Bo and drank a lot of Starbucks. It was very relaxing and if we had stayed at home we just would have gotten caught up in a project or two.chowder

The clam chowder is the best I have ever had…FULL of clams. Nice big meaty chunks. In this cup I had there were only about four bites of potato nestled in the creamy goodness. Usually it’s all potato with a hint of clams. (do you think I liked the chowder?)

The steak will melt in your mouth and the garlic mashed potatoes will have you wishing for a dessert made of them. If you ever get to Duluth it’s a must.  Pickwick Duluth Read more
