Tailgating and Kroll’s Oct. 18, 2015

If you are lucky enough to go the Green Bay for a Packers game you are well aware of the traditional tailgating efforts of the fans of America’s greatest team.  Steaks, brats, burgers, fish, shrimp are all grilled and washed down with various adult beverages.  The clouds of smoke drifting over the parking lots smell wonderful.

Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn

The fall season brings out all things pumpkin and most people enjoy that.  And I will admit to a particular fondness for the Wisconsinmade Pumpkin Cream Cheesecake   And maybe a latte or two.  And some Wisconsinmade Pumpkin Spice Carmel Corn.  And pumpkin ice cream. OK, so I guess I am a fan.  But it is possible to overdue a good thing right?

Wisconsin being an agricultural state grows lots of pumpkins and hosts fall harvest festivals.  Each fall the city of Cedarburg, Wisconsin hosts a pumpkin contest as part of their Wine and Harvest Festival .  The winning pumpkin came in at 2,145 pounds.  It was grown in Streator, Illinois, by a man named Gene McMullen.  Over a ton in one pumpkin!

If you too are into a variety of the refined tastes of pumpkin items visit our pumpkin pages at Wisconsinmade.com where all of these quality items are

The Kinnickinnic River is a world-class trout stream with over 8,000 trout per mile in some stretches. The “Kinni” flows through the City of River Falls and provides a beautiful backdrop to the Bacon Bash.

All over Wisconsin you can find small meat markets that supply local residents with fresh beef, pork, chicken, fish and game meats. Bacon is a staple for most of them.

Popcorn – A Healthy Snack Choice

Popcorn is one of the best healthiest snacks you can eat. In fact, popcorn even has some added nutritional benefits and antioxidants. The Healthy Home Economist website tells us it is due to the polyphenols that are present in popcorn.  Professor Vinson says that “Popcorn has more antioxidants in total than other snack foods that you can consume and it also has quite a bit of fiber.”  Wow!  Isn’t that great?

 

I love popcorn.  In fact it is my “go to” meal when my husband is not going to be home for dinner. It is just me and a big over stuffed bowl of popcorn covered with butter and salt. Yum! Unfortunately some of that healthiness disappears when I add the butter and salt.  In fact, the people at fitday.com say that popcorn is the number 1 healthiest snack as long as it is not drenched in butter.  Darn!  I wonder what they would have to say about caramel corn?  Probably not so healthy either but it sure is tasty.
