Some of you may have been wondering, and maybe not, where our April outing was or rather our April outing blogpost. I must admit that I am a bit behind in posting about it. Ann, Diana and I went to TDubs in Waupaca, on April 29th. It was so nice to get together and catch up with each other on what has been happening in our little corners of the world. T-Dubs is a warm and inviting space, with an open kitchen that you can sit at the bar and see the chef’s at work, it is really cool to watch the creative process of the kitchen staff. We were greeted by Jenny, who I understand has been at TDubs for quite a long time, and she was our server as well and did a fabulous job, very knowledgable about the menu and the offerings of the evening. I enjoyed a cucumber and mint wine spritzer type drink, it was fabulous, very refreshing. Our appetizer was these cajun seasoned chips with a bleu cheese dipping sauce and let me just say, the dipping sauce was so good, and the chips had a bit of a kick, awesome! The pasta dish I ordered was Chicken Vesuvio, which is penne pasta and chicken with fresh mushrooms, asparagus, red peppers & onions, tossed in a lite white wine garlic butter sauce with chicken, and warm homemade bread, yummm! Ann was pondering several choices, and in the end she ordered a sesame ahi tuna sandwich, which she really enjoyed. Diana ordered pasta as well, in a creamy tomato sauce with several different types of cheese and chicken. For anyone who has ever read any of my blog or my recipes in the local paper, you know dessert factors in heavily, ok probably the wrong turn of phrase to be used in this sentence, but dessert factors heavily into my life. When you can have a dessert experience that varies from the everyday, oh you want it!! Jenny deftly ran through our dessert choices, and of course there was a standout, which I promptly ordered with 3 forks. It was a chocolate cake made with Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Stout, and let me tell you, the vanilla undertones of the Bourbon Barrel Stout were highlighted in this dessert, not to mention that it was so moist, and light and the number one thing, just chocolatey enough to satisfy, but not over the top. Double Yummy!
I have eaten at TDubs probably a half a dozen times, and have found something new and tastey each time. Diana had been to TDubs before for a work related dinner. Ann has lived in Waupaca County most, if not all of her life and she had never been to TDubs. So it just goes to show you, there are alot of things to do and see right here in Waupaca County.
Many people think they need to go outside of Waupaca County to experience Wisconsin, and I am here to tell you, the heart of Wisconsin beats right here in Waupaca County.
I challenge you to find those things that are right around you, and experience something new. It’s your day!
