It’s been some time since Fat Paulie has emerged, but emerge he did last night. I joined my German classmates and their partners at Kurt’s Euro Bistro in Duluth. As you would imagine the traffic wasn’t great but after picking up my buddy Shelby we managed to make it to the restaurant just a few minutes after our reservation time. It’s been many, many years since my only other meal eaten at Kurt’s, and I was reminded that they have moved to their current location since. I had eaten a small lunch in anticipation of a large dinner consisting of German food. I snacked on a giant pretzel ordered by someone else at the table; I ordered a “schnitzel burger” because it was served with red cabbage and fries, and to that I also ordered an appetizer of Black Forest spätzle. Last night I discovered that my super power — attempting to order beer that is not in stock — is still in fine fettle because I accomplished that feat twice. Between the amount of food consumed and the long drive home all I did when I arrived back at the ITP Estate was plop onto the futon and fall asleep.
I mentioned yesterday that I am 3-for-3 on my June meal journey. My small lunch was a cob of corn, and a salad to which I added some lettuce and radish from WLF. Today? Turnips!!!
Depending on the weather, this weekend could be rather busy. Today I hope to spend some time puttering around WLF; I need to do some clean up and sowing of seeds. After walking with Betsy and Bella tomorrow may find me in Newnan for the Atlanta hash, and Sunday will most likely find me in Suwannee for Black Sheep.
What are you getting up to this weekend? Whatever it is I hope it’s enjoyable.
