Happy Memorial Day weekend friends! I just got back from 36 hours of camping with the man friend, completely unplugged. You see, I brought my camera and was ready to document the hiking…the rope swing…the campfire tofu pups…the Reese’s peanut butter cup s’mores… and the copious amounts of cheap beer consumed before I realized my memory card wasn’t in my camera! However, it ended up being just the thing I needed. No phone. No computer. No camera.

And of course, no Memorial Day weekend in Madison is complete without boating on Lake Monona, the farmer’s market and a trip to the World’s Largest Bratfest! Just like last year. It’s tradition.

If you’re already dreading going to work tomorrow, then here’s some reading to ease you back into the work week… (don’t worry, you’re not alone)

13 Disturbing Facts About McDonalds. It’s gross. It’s sick. A reminder why you shouldn’t eat at McDonalds…and I’m not even talking about the food.

These French Onion Soup Tartines = perfect party food.

Why starting your day with warm water and lemon is good for the body.

Is it ethical to eat meat? Mark Bittman knocks it out of the park again.

Caramel Brioche Croutons. Nuff’ said. Thank you Tracy!

Homemade Mary’s Gone Crackers crackers. Stop spending absured $$$ on the pre-made kind and make some of our own! Customizations totally encouraged.

And of course, a big thank you to the troops, veterans and military servicemen who allow us to do things like camp, drink cheap beer, host brat festivals and spend time with those we love!

I missed Brat Fest this year. In fact, I didn’t even eat a brat this weekend. I have failed as a Wisconsinite.

Glad you had a good weekend, friend! At least it’s a short week, right?

I’ve totally done that with my camera before! I have a lot of camera issues– the 2 trips I took to Europe I ended out breaking my camera (2 different ones mind you) the first week I was there

I now just use my iPhone
