Door County, Wisconsin (Popeye at the Fish Broil, Cheesecake, and Egg Harbor)

29 Aug

What’s up Meebsies?

Another Door County post for you guys. Hope you are all having a great rest of your summer. ^^

Off topic, but for those who are wondering what the heck happened to the giveaway. It will have to be REALLY postponed. I thought that I sent out a tweet about it, but I guess not. 😦 I’m really sorry guys, but my life has been really hectic. Really hectic. I promise the giveaway will be extremely amazing. ^_^ Please have patience with me.

I highly suggest going to a fish broil while you are in Door County. I know that many people have gone to the more common fish fry. You can tell from the name that a fish broil is where the food is broiled in water instead of being fried. After talking to a few locals, we were told that the Old Post Office is where you should go to get a good broil experience. It’s also one of the few places where they de-bone your fish for you! Make sure you place a reservation ahead of time because they fill up fast. ^^

You guys are probably wondering, what’s up with the title Meebs? Before the fish broil, we meet the broil master. He’s pretty awesome and doesn’t he look like Popeye? Lol.

See. Don’t they look alike? ^_^

Back to the broil. They first start off by heating up the water.

When everything is almost done cooking. He lights the whole pot on fire by pouring on gasoline. O.O

FINISHED PRODUCT!!! YUMMY!!!

This is what it looks like when they debone the fish.

For dessert, they have BOMB homemade cherry pie and vanilla ice cream. ^^

Went shopping/sightseeing in Egg Harbor. It’s so beautiful here. There is always something about a little town that puts your heart at peace.

Met a new friend. ^^

Stopped at the Pink Bakery for a snack.

First thing I saw when I walked in. BOOTY COOKES!!! ><

Even though booty cookies looked good. I went with the more conservative cookie sandwich. Lol. ^_^

PANDA PAW FUDGE?!?!?!? WHAAA??? ^_^

Egg Harbor is full of little boutiques, cafes, and restaurants.  Great for exploring and shopping.

Yummy mango gelato.

Would you eat a box for 20 bucks?

Last stop is some cheesecake. ^^

The owner told us that his baker trained in New York. I can see it paid off. Soo pretty that you don’t even want to eat it.

I can’t have cheesecake, so I had lactose free ice cream and waffles with…

cherry juice; because Door County is known for their cherry juice. ^^

Lastly a picture of me at our private beach/dock. ^_^

Have a great day!!!

❤

Door County, Wisconsin (Lighthouse Hunting While High On Cheese)

24 Aug

Heya Meebsies,

I can’t beileve that summer is slowly coming to an end. It’s never seems to be long enough. T_T

While I was in Chicago, I had a chance to go on a quick road trip to Door County, Wisconsin. Transitioning from the fast paced Chicago to the calm waters of Lake Michigan; it was a welcomed change. I finally got some real R&R. ^_^

IDK about you guys, but when I think about Wisconsin; I think about cheese. Lol. As we drove through Wisconsin’s countryside, it was cheese factory after cheese factory. You know the cheese is fresh when there is a factory right next to the store. Lol. ^^

The first step in our journey was filling our tummies with all the cheese we could bear. ^_^

This is what I saw when I walked in…

Is this heaven? *O*

CHEDDAR CHEESE?!!!?!?!? I WELCOME DEATH!!!! ^O^

Nah I’m just kidding. But it was pretty impressive. This is only one fridge of the the six I believe.

Cute wax packaged cheese. ^^

I couldn’t agree with you more.

I wanted this hat sooo bad. I mean come on guys. Who wouldn’t want a top hat made of cheese?

Since this is a pretty small town, instead of hotels, we got a little cottage. Despite the appearance on the outside, this place was nice. There were three of us and this place could accommodate 6. Even though there isn’t wifi or T.V. the private dock/beach made up for it. ^_^

If you guys are interested, check out their website. The owners are really really really nice. Since the oven in our cottage didn’t work, they took off $50 from out rent. ^^

Below are pictures of the dock and beach. ^^

After we settled in, we decided to go lighthouse hunting…

Even though we did find two lighthouses. Our efforts we for naught. One lighthouse was on a military base. Another was closed…. T_T

I was actually looking forward to climbing a lighthouse. So instead, we decided to compromise.

Instead we decided to climb the Eagle Tower.

Despite being scared of heights. I had to stick it out because the view above was just spectacular. ^^

While the view above was amazing. The view below was just as beautiful. ^_^

Sad Face.

Stopped for dinner…

and did a little shopping…

/snacking. ^^

I thought I would end the post with these dragonflies I happened to stumble across. It was a miracle that I could even spot them. I wonder if they are best friends…

Have a great afternoon guys.

Talk to you soon.

^^
