Time to Celebrate!

20 Aug

There are two very important reasons to celebrate this week! First and foremost, it is Cdog and Paul’s 6th Anniversary! And without that anniversary, we wouldn’t be celebrating Monkey’s 2nd birthday!


Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday to the Gentile Family! We love you!

Here is a cake for Camille:

Merry Christmas from The Eats!

24 Dec

Merry Christmas Eve!! I’m in Wisconsin and Kteb is in South Carolina. We’re both celebrating with our respective families. Between all of the cocktails, appetizers, cookies and snacks we just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas. Thanks for coming along our our crazy ride. We’re looking forward to continuing to entertain, rant, rave, eat and drink with you into 2012!

Happy Birthday Cdog!

21 Oct

Happy Birthday to the best blogging buddy ever! It is such a pleasure to share this blog and the love for food and booze with you!  You are also one of my best friends and I can’t wait to celebrate so many more birthdays together!

Yes that is bacon spelling out happy birthday below. No, I did not make this. And that is me down there saying, “Let’s Party like it’s your birthday!” Maybe I should leave that to Fitty…

Love ya- Kteb

A roadtrip to Wisconsin in food pictures

2 Sep

As promised, I tried my best to document all of the amazing yummy goodness that was our Wisco trip. Check out all of the photos below!

Our first real stop was in Niagara, Canada. Neither of us had ever been there before and it was beautiful. Of course we had to have a Canadian beer sampler at lunch as we overlooked the falls…duh

Canadian beer sampler eh!

So there is a big lag in pictures between this one and two days later. Let’s just say the wedding was a BLAST and none of those photos are appropriate for this blog. However we did make a trip to Milwaukee’s Irish Fest on the lakefront and I found this amazing area where they were roasting meat. I was so tempted to just jump the rope!

Roasting Chicken - Kteb would have died for this

Our 2nd wedding anniversary was kicked off with a stop at the Wollersheim Winery in Prarie Du Sac, Wi.

Next we were off to New Glarus – basically for one reason only…the New Glarus Brewing Co. Big thanks to Randy and Randy on their staff for making us feel so welcome.

New Glarus Brewing Co. WE LOVE YOU!

To give you context for this meal – it was our 2 year anniversary and we were eating at a traditional Swiss restaurant in New Glarus, WI…read on…

Sauerbraten with Red Cabbage - my fab dinner

Spatzle & Roesti - dying for these

Piccata Schnitzel - The Love Muffin's dinner

Who doesn't love chocolate fondue?

Stevens Point, WI – the place of my birth and the home to many of my family members. We had an amazing lunch and dinner with both sets of my Grandparents and decided to cap the night off at our favorite local restaurant: Christian’s Bistro.

Central Waters Brewing Co. Local and Yummy!

After Stevens Point we hit up Green Bay, along with a Lambeau Field Tour! I was like a 12 year old all over again…

Sorry I didn’t get a pic of our beers or the sandwiches we ate. I had a buffalo burger and The Love Muffin had elk…you know you’re in Wisconsin when…

Then we were onto our next stop. The Inn at Cedar Crossing in Sturgeon Bay, WI (Door County).

Duck, garlic spinach, sour cream mashed potatoes - my last dinner on vaca

The Love Muffin's dinner - shrimp, pasta in a basil cream sauce with truffle oil

Chocolate chip scone - homemade duh

We had such an amazing time in Wisconsin but it was time to get back. Hurricane Irene was a-comin’ and we wanted to get back before our power went out and/or we were flooded. So on the road we went. And our last stop before home…Buffalo, NY. Wings at Duff’s!

Oh just some wings in Buffalo, nbd

As you can see we ate and drank our way through our trip, but did you expect any different? We made it home before the majority of the storm and lucky for us, we never lost power and didn’t have any flooding. Now we’re looking forward to our next culinary vacation – Tuscany in November.
