Minnesota Grown


5 great Minnesota Grown products for Random 5 Friday

1)  Dangerous Man Brewing, Indeed Brewing, Harriet Brewing, Liftbridge and yes, maybe even 612 Brew.  Even though they had a crappy food truck the other night.  Bloomys Booked.  Yuck.  And there are so many more local breweries popping up all over.  I guess Minnesotans like beer.

2)  Food Trucks that drive to Breweries.  See above.  Like Cajun 2 Gaux, Midnord Empanadas and World Street Kitchen.  To name a few.  Not Bloomys Booked.  Yuck.

3) Chocolate Mini Doughnuts!  Yes, it was pure Genius.  I had them at the Powderhorn Art Fair.  From a mystery mini doughnut vendor.  If it wasn't for the chocolate doughnut I got at Bogart Loves last weekend I might not survive my cravings.  Whew.

4)  Olive's pizza in Marine on St. Croix.  The Caprese drizzled with a sweet balsamic vinegar.  Heaven.

5) Well, how about some Minnesota Grown sweetcorn harvested from the field and brought home from the Nicollet Farmer's Market.  The only thing better might be the bag.  At least for some people. Like my Minnesota grown cat.

Your Minnesota Grown cat is so sweet! Cats are so funny with bags and boxes.

Breweries are popping up in our area, too. People are getting creative with their beer.

I'll take a chocolate mini donut. My husband likes to brew his own beer.

My cats have no interest in grocery bags. No fair. :)

I just finished dinner and you're making me hungry all over again. Greetings sent from that other great brewing city - St. Louis.

Who let the cat out of the bag? Cats and bags are the perfect combo!

Love your purple flowers :) Not so sure I'm cut out for Minnesota if it requires beer, though I suppose I could drink some wine and be happy the beer drinkers are happy.
