Savour Green Bay

Today we savored Green Bay. In other words, we attended the "Savour Green Bay" fest held downtown in the heart of Packer Land. Think of "Taste of Chicago" on a smaller scale. A much smaller scale. A downtown parking lot was filled with vendor tents- restaurants, breweries, and wineries- all offering small portions of a few dishes. Mark tried the Ribeye Slider with mushrooms and onions; and Fresh Rhubarb Crisp with whipped cream.  I had the Chili Lime Shrimp, and my favorite by far, the Lemon Rosemary Salmon Salad on a bed of tabouleh topped with olive tapenade. Oh my goodness. So fresh and flavorful!

Next we went to Cook's Corner, advertised as the country's largest cooking store. They have EVERTHING imaginable for the kitchen. It is one of our must-do's in Green Bay.

After seeing all of the cooking utensils I was inspired to make Mini Turkey Salsa Meatloaves and Lentil Salad for supper. The meatloaf is from Iowa Girl Eats and the Lentil Salad is from Mark Bittman's latest book, VB6. Mark gave both 2 thumbs up.

And the Sturgeons around the Bay keep popping up! Today's catch:
