Picture of the Day

How to ruin a maple long john

Shopping in Hopkins Minnesota last week and I had a craving for a donut, and sometimes a maple long john is one that I prefer. However, upon approaching the display case this is what I saw and lost my appetite for all sweets. The concept might have been good because warm bacon goes so well with warm pancakes and syrup, but a cold donut with cold bacon on top just didn't do it for me.

Scared to ask:

Lunds or Byerlys?


My real question though, is this:

did you get some "hotdish"???? :D

Actually it was Driskill's foods, use to be a SuperValue.
It has been years since some form of MN hotdish, especially a tater tot hotdish. :)

Did you try the donut? I've had a variation where the bacon is chopped into bits and actually its a nice balace between sweet and.. bacon-y...there are no words to describe... lol

LHO, do you know any Minnesotans or Lutherans? :)
I'm have to run for an orientation and hate to reference wiki but they actually had a good discription of "Hotdish" and it's popularity in MN.

FS, didn't try it and I have heard that chocolate covered bacon is good. I get the sweet and salty combination, but need to be in that mood.

HOTDISHES ROCK! Here's one from my MN childhood, growing up we played a game called Duck, Duck, Gray Duck. It wasn't until I moved and was ridiculed that many other states and places have never heard of this game, but have heard of Duck, Duck, Goose. If you don't believe me ask someone living in MN. :-)

Zazzy, so true it should be gray duck.
