Which brings me to- Midwest Road-trip 2011! The sister, Dad, and I drove from Milwaukee to Cleveland- stopping in Chicago overnight. Not going to lie, the drive was a little bland. Oh wait, I slept the whole time! BOO YAH.
Today, the sister and I got up extra early because of time change [and I am a grandma] and were out the door for a 40 minute run by Lake ERIE (Why do I keep saying Superior- my bad!) by 8AM! When we returned home- we planned our excursion to downtown Cleveland. Here’s how my day went:
Stop 1: Cleveland Botanical Gardens I took a bajillion and one photos at the gardens, so I won’t bore you with too many flower pictures
I also tried mussels for the first time! They were a lot better than expected. The texture is a little bit different, but overall the flavor was great! I am slowly but surely turning into a seafood lover. My palate is expanding from plain ol’ shrimp and salmon to different kinds of fish and shellfish.
