Happy Friday Everyone! TGIF!
How was your week? Did it go fast? or maybe a bit too slow? Either way the weekend is here and I hope you get to do what makes you feel happy!
My week went rather quickly after coming off of a 3 day weekend for the 4th of July. Speaking of the 4th, we took a ride up to Door County for the day. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Door County is located in the “arm” of northern Wisconsin and is well known, click here to learn more.
The scenery in Door County is so beautiful and it has quaint little towns filled with small shops, B&B’s, Inn’s, restaurants and bars. There are a couple of state parks where you can camp, bike ride, picnic and so much more. Here are a few of my favorites from Door County. Click on the photos to get to the web-sites.
Fat Louie’s Olive Oil Company. I tasted the Sicilian Olive Oil and it is super delicious. It has a hint of chipotle along with basil, garlic and parmesan.
We stopped at Island Orchard Cider where they make a local hard cider. Crisp and delicious, we sampled 7 different varieties. Oak Aged Apple Cider was our favorite.
Door County Bakery is a must stop when we go to Door County. They offer so much and I have never been disappointed with anything I have had here. They have fresh baked breads, kolachi’s, coffee cake, cookies, desserts, cinnamon rolls, donuts and the list go’s on and on. The one item we never leave without is The Corsica Loaf. The bakers define it as, a marriage of French bread dough with a stone-oven baking process which incorporates our own blend of olive oils and sesame seeds. It is hard to describe but I have never had anything like it and I LOVE IT!
