The Food You Grew Up With and Craft Beer Tasting


There is something luxurious about having a weekday off. It’s even more luxurious when The Husband says that we should go out to breakfast. This man knows the way to my heart.

We went to an old favorite, Keys Café (the original location). As you can see, it’s Minnesota’s most awarded family restaurant:


Some breakfasts deserve an appetizer, and if you go to Key’s, you need to get a cinnamon roll:

Hello, Lover.

The Husband was in heaven with all the bacon that came with his Ranch Special:

Two eggs, hash browns, toast, and choice of sausage, ham, or bacon.

And my Veggie Scramble was a cheesy delight:

Eggs scrambled in mixed vegetables and hashbrowns topped with cheese (with toast).

After breakfast, The Husband headed to work and I enjoyed a few hours getting ready for Thanksgiving. I should have been working on the shrug for the Wedding of the Year (which is Friday – eek!), but I didn’t.

Before long, I had to pick up The Best-Good Friend and head to Fulton Brewing to sample The Husband’s beer. Fulton is doing a taproom “Brewers Series” and The Husband is calling his Robust Smoked Porter “London’s Burning.” It was the first time his beer has been available in the taproom and he was stoked.


And now, I really must get to that shrug.
