I'm pretty sure most of you non-Wisconsinites are going to read the post title differently... but I mean brats, as in bratwurst, not brats, as in whiny kids in the supermarket.
Full disclosure here: I'm not originally from Wisconsin, and I'm not even German (there are approximately seven people not of German descent who live in my area), but man, do I enjoy some beer and brats. Allow me to take you on a visual tour of the food of my adopted state.
Traditional Wisconsin Cuisine
|Giant brat, mustard, sauerkraut. Don't knock it til you've tried it.|
|Giant (half-consumed, of course) beer. |
Bonus points for beer being in giant stein:
That's it! That's all you need to know about Wisconsin food.
That's Lambeau field in the background of the first two pictures - I was lucky enough to go to the Packer/Viking game on Monday night, and it was a great game. Before the game, we all had to hold up big colored cards to create a cool Veteran's Day tribute:
|My view from the eye-hole of the card.|
|Thank you Veterans!|
|Every branch represented on the field - very cool.|
My veteran hubby and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Hope you all have a great weekend - check back Monday for an awesome giveaway!
P.S. Have you ever eaten a brat?
