Today at Blendon Woods Metro Park, you could capture and tag Monarch butterflies for tracking on their migration to overwinter in Mexico. You held the wings between your forefingers and applied a small sticker to the wing. The sticker has an unique identification number and a website and phone number to contact. The data is compiled through a program at Kansas University. Orange and black milkweed bugs swarming on a...wait for it...milkweed pod. Alternating layers of chewy brownie and rich peanut butter, covered with dark chocolate ganache!
I usually stuff myself on savory pizza pies and have no room for dessert pies. On this trip, I boxed up some pizza for a cold pizza breakfast the next morning so I could further indulge in this delight! Skillet mac and cheese topped with bread crumbs from 101 Beer Kitchen in Gahanna. A half and half large pizza from Pies and Pints new Easton location.
Half grape pie; Red grapes, Gorgonzola and fresh rosemary (Yes, grapes on a pizza are fantastic!)
Half chciken gouda pie; Marinated grilled chicken, applewood smoked bacon, smoked Gouda, red onions, chipotle crema and scallions
All delicious. A closeup of a cool circular fungi. Is it a turkey-tail or a false turkey-tail? I'll leave that up to my expert. Trametes versicolor vs. Stereum ostrea! Housemade soft pretzels topped with sea salt and caraway seeds, served with a beer cheese spread. You too could get a haircut with giant novelty scissors! Ask for Sandy. This is the way to bang out an evening at the Melting Pot; Get the Classic Alpine cheese fondue (Aged Gruyère, Raclette and fontina cheeses blended with white wine and fresh garlic and finished with a dash of nutmeg.). Skip the salad. Skip the entree. Get the pure chocolate fondue melted to decadent perfection with an assortment of dipping accoutrements such as strawberries, blondies, bananas, pineapple, marshmallow treats, pound cake, and brownies. (Plus, if you're feeling daring, sneak in your own accoutrements like fancy key lime pie marshmallows that you received as a gift earlier in the evening!) A view along one of the trails through Blendon Woods Metropark. On certain evenings, inside the breakfast/lunch joint called The Best Breakfast and Sandwiches, a freaking delicious pop up restaurant called Yeah, Baby, Tacos emerges! Pictured here is a fish taco and elote (Mexican street corn) covered in queso fresco and spices. The One Red Door Burger, with lettuce, pickle, tomato, crispy shallots, melted brie cheese, and a date apple wood bacon aioli. A chunk of ripple rock vaguely in the silhouette of Ohio! Ripple rock was formed when waves caused ripples in the sand of an ancient sea that once covered Central Ohio. Over the ages, the sand and ripple marks were transformed into rock. A wrap with gyro meat, lettuce, onions, cucumbers, pickles, feta cheese and kalamata olives from Mezze Middle'Terranean (Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food, get it?...) Seven ounces of black peppercorn crusted Ohio raised premium grass fed beef topped with Amish blue cheese and port braised onions on a brioche sesame seed bun. The New Jack City burger with chorizo sausage, avocado, salsa verde, roasted red peppers, red onion, and pepperjack cheese from Michael Symon's B Spot burgers. On certain evenings, inside the breakfast/lunch joint called The Best Breakfast and Sandwiches, a freaking delicious pop up restaurant called Yeah, Baby, Tacos emerges! Pictured here are three tacos in corn tortillas, one each of chorizo, shredded chicken, spicy jerk pork topped with a menagerie of accoutrements such as Napa cabbage, pickled onions, crema, spicy papaya salsa, yellow tomatoes and more! Hilib arii. Marinated goat served with rice and a side salad. Flip Side burger and sweet potato fries Sambusa with spiced beef and vegetable fillings. Vanilla bean, apple pie and bacon milkshake! Vanilla ice cream and and a slice of apple pie in a blender topped with crumbled bacon. Maytag blue cheese potato chips. Crab enchiladas with a tomatillo sauce and Mexican rice. Seafood chimichanga filled with shrimp, onions and peppers served with Mexican rice and guacamole salad. Nopales con puerco y arroz .
