After being sick all week, we finally got out of the house today and had some fun at Doors Open Milwaukee. More on that in a separate post.
I barely did anything yesterday because I pulled a muscle in my chest/back from coughing. Luckily, I felt much better when I woke up today and it only hurts a little. This virus is not leaving my body and it’s maddening.
I was sporting a new infinity scarf from yala designs today…it’s made of viscose from bamboo and super soft! The only thing I will have to be careful about is washing it and the other items I ordered. They say to launder with gentle soap, but don’t consider Woolite a gentle detergent.
Craig and I took a break from Doors Open mid-afternoon and went to Beans & Barley for lunch.
I wanted to choose something I normally wouldn’t make at home or find anywhere else, so I ordered a Walnut Burger.
Here’s the description from their menu: A seasoned walnut & cheese patty from Wisconsin’s Historic Trempealeau Hotel. We serve the burger on a rustic sandwich bun, with mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato.
It was really delicious and a moist veggie burger. I loved the bun as well.
We both couldn’t finish our meals and decided to bring half home. I loved that the boxes they gave us are reusable.
We hadn’t been to Beans & Barley for a couple of years, so it was good to be back. I always enjoy checking out the attached market too.
