Chicken Pot Pie in Wisconsin!

Chicken pot pie at The Great Dane in Madison, WI. My mom took this picture on the apartment hunting trip she and I made together. It was freakin' delicious. Do you see that pastry puff crust? Heck yes.

Food Crawl: Siam Terrace

Our second stop of the day was at Siam Terrace where we ate spring rolls, crab rangoon, fried tofu with chili sauce and my personal favorite, coconut sticky rice with mango.

Here I am trying some of that delicious stuff in my hand-painted A Lot On Her Plate t-shirt which reads "I Love Fried Food." Too true!

Food Crawl: Crane Alley

My fearless leader, Ashley DeGroot, eats pita with spinach and artichoke dip at Crane Alley, which was the first stop of our day. We also had beet chips with goat cheese. So delicious.

Food Crawl

This week I'm featuring pictures from the first annual NOW food crawl. We tried tasty things all around town and did a lot of laughing, as you can see in the picture above featuring Hillary L., Mandy W. and Anna C. This was at Cocomero, our third stop of the day where we tried bubble tea and lattes.

Fat Tuesday Treat

So the greatest thing happened in my Scandinavian Literature class yesterday; my professor brought in Semla, which is a Swedish Fat Tuesday specialty! It's a cardamom-spiced wheat bun hollowed out and filled with a marzipan pudding, topped with whipped cream, a little hat, and powdered sugar.
I know--what a bunch of stuff, right? It was delicious and even though you can't see it in this picture, I ate it with relish.
And had marzipan pudding fingers for the next hour. :)
