Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

So the other day I’m on the air and mentioned to all the listeners to not forget getting the turkey for thanksgiving.  Then the wheels started turning.  I inquired whether everybody does in fact find it necessary to follow the tradition and cook a turkey?  Oh sure, people will cook it in the oven, smoke…Read more »

Brats and Cheese Curds

Brats and Cheese Curds

With this week having National Cheese Curd day in it I was wondering a few things.  First…National?  Do they celebrate cheese curds in other states like we do in Wisconsin?  Also, it seems another Wisconsin tradition, the bratwurst is expanding.  You hear more and more mention of those delicious tube steaks cropping up all over…Read more »
