Fritz and Frites-You Rhone Regret It

Fritz and Frites-You Rhone Regret It

Let’s be completely honest, none of us are ready for this. We all secretly wish we had a glorious Indian summer that would have lulled us into the impending doom of winter. A fate we all dread, but one that has been disdainfully predicted by the fine writers of The Farmer’s Almanac. I am sure these are all charming individuals, but at this rate, their popularity may wane. May we suggest food? I mean, it may seem a devious escape, but really, everything is better with food, right?

L. May Eatery

L. May Eatery

Oh, October how we welcome you with a tinge in our voice; as we look over our shoulder to say good-bye to Summer.  Slowly we turn to welcome October with full knowledge that Winter is just around the corner.  Cool nights and brisk days of sunshine pass, coupled with Apple Cider, Pumpkin Patches and football.  Across the land, hearty stews and soups along with warm breads are making a comeback into our kitchens; replacing the lighter fare of the summer.  We want to dine with friends in an atmosphere that is warm and the food comforting.  There is no better place than L. May to fulfill that desire.

Cranes, Pelicans and Pilots, Oh My…

Cranes, Pelicans and Pilots, Oh My…

What do you mean it’s September? It seems as if summer just began, but, alas, kids are back in school, Halloween candy is already on the shelves and apple cider and autumn leaves are the topic of many conversations. September is a month that can throw us straight into cool fall temperatures or remind us that summer is not officially over until almost the end of the month. We are hoping for just such a September this year as I am not quite ready for shorter days and the need for socks. So let’s enjoy every last second of summer while we can.

Summer Night’s, Main Street, and Perry Street Brasserie

Summer Night’s, Main Street, and Perry Street Brasserie

There are few things more enjoyable than a midsummer’s night stroll down Main Street, Galena. Sidewalks are bustling with people and the air is thick with sweet summer scent. The candy store and ice cream parlor are echoing with children’s squeals as the molasses from the candy corn draws you into the store. There is a jovial feeling in the air. Life is good, so let’s treat ourselves to a great meal.

Little Tokyo – A Summer Sushi Sensation

Little Tokyo – A Summer Sushi Sensation

As everyone is making plans for the annual Independence Day celebrations across the area, our heads fill with visions of barbecues, burgers, and brats. Parties will be attended and our plates will be laden with potato salad, pasta salads, and all foods featured in the classic American summer cookbook. By July 5, most of us are content to not see another burger, hot dog, or dish of potato salad until, well… until the next barbecue. July in the Midwest is hot, humid, and muggy. Most of us succumb to the humidity and have the air conditioning turned on if we are lucky enough to have AC. On these hot, lazy days of summer, jumping into the kitchen and turning on the stove is not very appealing. Even grilling can be a tiresome experience when the temperature breaks 90 degrees. Going out to eat is always a lovely option, and we are always looking for a place with something light, refreshing, and different.
